More Monday Morning March Madness Hot Takes!

Ewwwwww he so OFF!Thursday's sweet sixteen games were a total bust and that sucked by Friday more than made up for it. Now that the Final Four is set, I feel like quoting Seth Davis "This Tournament" and he is right.  This tourney has been sick.  These games, horrible calls aside, have been terrific.  As much as we want Seal to fail, you can't deny that this...

Next Stop for 'Hoos: Sweet Sixteen

In a magical season marked by one milestone after another, the UVa men's basketball team made more history Sunday night. Before an amped-up crowd that turned PNC Arena into John Paul Jones Arena South, Virginia destroyed Memphis 78-60 to advance to the NCAA tournament's Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 1995. "It means the world to have another chance to play...

NCAA Bubble Watch: PAC-12 Conference Post Season Predictions

This season, the PAC-12 Conference has seen its share of teams occupy spots in the top 25. At the beginning of the year, Colorado and Oregon took up shop in the rankings, only to fall off pace and be replaced later on by UCLA. With so much volatility in the conference rankings, it will be a definite mad dash for the finish out West. Here is a rundown of the post season predictions...

Virginia News & Notes - Date to look forward to edition

So, the more astute members of the audience, and the less astute ones too, should notice a new addition to the blog.  I figure it this way: Al Groh was let go the very same day in 2009 as the season-ending loss to VT.  That was November 29.  By Gregorian coincidence, next year's Thanksgiving Saturday is also November 29, and if things go as everyone fully expects, five years...

Virginia basketball injury update and notes

Some days all I want to write is, "That sucked."  I figure if I left it at that, there wouldn't be much else to say, really.  But maybe I owe you a little more than two words.  I wrote a few more than two for ITA this week, and you should go check that out as sort of a starting point for the rest of the ramblings on where we stand, one-sixth of the way into the ACC...

Bennett still believes in rags-to-riches story

Predicting Virginias demise is something that began in ACC press rooms in early January. Plenty of folks just didnt believe in the Cavaliers. And with injuries piling up on the boys from Charlottesville, expectations of the Cavaliers downfall have accelerated. But it really hasnt happened. UVA did lose two in a row and three of four games recently, but it has rebounded to grab...

5 Worst Super Bowl Halftime Performances of All Time

Can someone please explain to me the process for picking a Super Bowl halftime performer? Whoever is in charge of booking these acts either knows nothing about music, or maybe they are just hoping to make it as bad as possible to make sure people are talking about it the next day. Whatever the reason, the Super Bowl halftime show has routinely turned into nothing more than a great...

Scorer's Table: Virginia is Not Wisconsin; and the Mysteries of Cincinnati

1. As noted yesterday, Virginia clearly has issues on offense. But Tony Bennett's team has not disappointed on the other end of the court. Entering yesterday's game with Drexel (in the loser's bracket of the Paradise Jam) the Hoos were allowing just 0.76 points per possession. Against the Dragons (hitting 18% from 3-point land) they turned it up a notch and completely...
