Game on ESPN2, and maybe the last good one till almost the new year (Iowa State isn't what they once were, and lost to Drake).  So might be the last exciting game with a month's worth of development (maybe more...how do we start AND end the Big Ten season with Penn State?). And if I'm wrong, there's always Rudolph at 8 pm. (Oh who am I kidding, set your dvr).

Predicting Jordan doesn't let Mike Scott go completely bananas, and our guards outplay theirs

  We win in a close one, with Mike Scott getting something like 17 pts, but Jordan battling him and getting 12 pts on 5-8 shooting, and grabbing 7-8 boards of his own

Don't mean to interrupt the thread but I thought everyone would like to know that Brionte will be visited tomorrow by Fred Jackson and (WR Coach) Heck in his home.  Shall we buckle up? Meyer will be voting soon with Hoke following behind (most likely).

a Wahoo is a fish reportedly that can "drink" 3 times its weight.  (I know, I know... its a FISH... it DRINKS with every breath.  No, I don't understand what it means.)

But, Virginia used to have a rep as a party school.  They liked to think they can chug beer w the best (read: Dartmouth).  So, the student body years and years ago decided to call themselves the Wahoos b/c they can drink so much.  And it stuck.

A "Double Wahoo" is someone with both undergrad and grad UVa degrees.  A "triple Wahoo" would be, like, BS, MS and PhD, all from UVa, etc.

Yeah, as dumb as naming yourself after a nut.
