Are you pulling for LOLUVa in the NCAA Tournament?

Oh, oh.... I know... Trust me... I know

But I was just over on TSL (shame on me, right?), and apparently the hot topic right now is how everyone is pulling for LOLUVa to win it all this year. I repeat this... THE MAJORITY IS PULLING FOR FREAKING LOLUVA TO WIN THE MEN'S BASKETBALL NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-GJ8c8NUhtvw/Uwzks7ndAvI/AAAAAAAACAE/0HvaVjwVeyo/s1600/5bc6e07ef20e4a8ea5799e5760f18aea_full.jpg

I'm absolutely stunned. How can you call yourself a Hokie and cheer for your numero 1 biggest rival to win it all in a major sport. You think their fans are bad now? My god, think how pigheaded they'll be with a crystal basketball on their campus.

And my answer. No... Hell no... I'd rather get probed by a rusty medieval mace while taking a bath in a mixture of crushed habaneros, texas pete, and lime juice, cleaning myself with sandpaper before cheering for them.

this is a disgrace. We need to change the title asap..

My friend (VCU alum) picked UVA to win it all. Part of me thinks that VCU getting knocked out in the first round is karma.

Is this really a serious question?

But if they win, it will be that much sweeter when Buzz beats them next year...

Such tackle. Very D-Line. Wow.

Still NO. It will be just fine when Frank beats them for the 11th time in a row and Buzz beats them anyway.

If only because WVU can't win it all this year

Which wallet is yours?

The one that says "Bad Motherfucker"

I don't know why but your comment sounded very Dr. Seuss to me. It might be the fact that the only thing I read more than TKP is children's books. So...

I do not want UVA to win.
I do not wish them a Big Ten win.
I do not want them to win this year.
I do not want them to have good cheer.
I hope they lose forever more.
I hope they weep upon the floor.
Seeing UVA win makes me want to vomit.
I hope their arena is hit by a comet.
I do not like UVA Buzz.
I hope they lose, just because.

Is this Dr. Suess or Dr. Hoos?

Which wallet is yours?

nope, next question

"It's worth it right? It's worth it to lay it all on the line for your brothers!"
"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster (both quotes)

I think Dough Gottlieb(someone on ESPN Radio) talked about this on his show like a year ago. There are some rivals you want to win so it makes the rivalry more interesting and competitive(ie they go 11-0 and you give them their one loss) then there is your true rival who you hope goes 0-12 and everyone stomps them into the ground. That is UVa for us...in every-sport.

Side-note: My one friend stuck to his guns and in a money bracket picked UVa to lose first round.

There will never be a situation I would pull for them.

“I hope that they’re not going to have big eyes and pee down their legs so to speak,” -- Bud Foster

There could one day be a situation where a UVA win knocks another team out of contention and gets us into the ACCGC.

Twitter me

No. No. HELL no. I say we petition to have TSL removed from being associated with anything Virginia Tech.

Carry Me Back

Me? Heck to the no. I saw the same thread on TSL and it absolutely shocked me.

In Sam Rogers we trust.

This is one of those times where I really, really, really wish "Floor opens up and swallows both teams" was a serious option.

I live near East Lansing - they've already started warning the students and fans that rioting and burning of couches will not be tolerated.

What's worse, I'm sure I'll hear about it from my FIL (who calls himself an MSU alumnus even though he never graduated due to a GPA south of 1.0) because he consistently gets it in his head that I went to UVA - even when I'm wearing VT attire.

It seems they've been drinking too much Zima at TSL

Go Hokies

I picked Coastal Carolina in a bracket I had money on

need I say more?

"I like to hit a home run early" ~ Whit "knows how to create a Buzz" Babcock

Me too. Fuck UVa.

To answer the question...No. I am not rooting for them to do anything but successfully annex Charlottesville to Estonia.

I'll leave pulling for a bitter rival when your own team sucks to the SEC. That's their thing.

Best response ever.

“These people are losing their minds. This is beautiful.”

Why, actually yes.

I am pulling for them to get as close as they can and then be decimated in the worst one-sided loss ever seen in the history of college basketball, quickly followed by substantiated rumors of recruiting violations that make UNCheat look like a nunnery. At which point Coach Bennett will resign in humilitation and the NCAA will impose the death sentence to all of uva athletics. Then the major donors and the state will withhold funds causing uva to wither on the vine like a bunch of dehydrated wild grapes.

So, yes.....I am pulling for them.

I am rooting for them to win some games, not the title.

I like watching their hoops team play ball. They rebound, play D, execute bounce passes, and run nice plays out of half court sets. It's like watching college basketball back when the sport was good and I'm jealous of it. They have sucked so much the last decade it doesn't bother me if they win some games. They still have London and are a joke at football. Football is the sport that matters to me and I would never root for them to compete in football.

I will never root for them, but Bennett is one hell of a coach and them boys can flat play. I hope they lose, but I definitely enjoy watching them.

#TouchdownTech

I like your avatar

And to keep this on-topic, no, eff UVA

Not sure how this can be down-voted. Anyone that knows the game knows that Bennett is an excellent coach and is doing a lot with the talent (or lack thereof) that he has to work with.

I am OK with them winning a few more games, especially given how poorly the ACC has represented in the tourney thus far. But I absolutely DO NOT want them winning the whole thing.

But really, as it relates to basketball, I am already in the 2014-2015 season. And, I am seeing us beating them in basketball next year when BOTH teams are ranked. I can already feel the Cassell shaking for that one.

Hopefully, in the near future, we're exactly like Florida, Michigan, Ohio State, UCLA, and a few other teams that have big-time teams in both revenue sports year in and year out. #WHITFRANKBUZZWIN

Virginia Tech 42, #11 Miami 24 - Da U, still not back

A few more? There's only four more games.

You do not want UVA in the final Four, we'd never hear the end of it. This is about as far as they need to go.

Upvote from me, just because that didnt deserve any downvotes.

“These people are losing their minds. This is beautiful.”

Ditto. Downvotes are not for differences of opinion. This isn't Facebook.

Never make eye contact while eating a banana.

I wish to know where downvote button is on Facebook. Too many silly game invites. Wow.

Such tackle. Very D-Line. Wow.

I do not use Facebook, but am under the impression that there are "Like" and "Dislike" buttons. Is this correct? I was trying to point out that Downvotes are not meant to be the TKP equivalent of a "Dislike" button.

Also, I absolutely love the HokieDioge gimmick.

Never make eye contact while eating a banana.

No dislike button on Facebook unfortunately.

"That move was slicker than a peeled onion in a bowl of snot." -Mike Burnop

What am I thinking of then? I know somewhere on this here series of tubes has "Like" and "Dislike" buttons. Maybe I am thinking of the old, pre-Facebook ESPN commenting system (RIP ACCylum). I now feel hopelessly outdated. I am only 38.

I still refuse to get involved with Facebook and do not regret it for a second. My wife is on Facebook and I do enjoy watching her excitedly check her phone when she gets Facebook notifications, only to see her get mad or roll her eyes at whatever grand display of stupidity one of her "friends" just posted.

Never make eye contact while eating a banana.

Haha sounds like Facebook. Maybe you're thinking of YouTube? There are a number of places you can up and downvote. Reddit and imgur are a couple others.

"That move was slicker than a peeled onion in a bowl of snot." -Mike Burnop

There is a Facebook group for the ACCylum still.

Rip his freaking head off!

But then we can't keep kicking their a$$ every year. And we won't have anyone to really rag at here on TKP. I really don't want that event-line.

"Does it get any better than Thursday Night in Blacksburg?" - Reece Davis

I'm still rooting for Virginia Tech. Normally, I give up my National Championship aspirations around the time we aren't selected for the Tournament, but given the recent developments within the program, I've adopted a broader view of what is and isn't possible.

"No, we will not die like dogs, we will fight like lions!"

Sparty has looked like the best team in the tournament so far. If they continue playing like they have so far I look forward to LOLUVAs heartbreak.

THIS AND ONLY THIS

@Fightin_Gobbler

“These people are losing their minds. This is beautiful.”

LOL. Good luck stopping Adreian Payne. I had them losing in the first round in every bracket I picked, and I regret nothing.

Let me be clear:

...and for good measure:

"We are better than we think, but not quite what we want to be" - Nikki Giovanni

I always hope UVa loses. In the last couple of decades, though, when they play Duke in basketball, I am presented a conundrum. Both are teams I want to lose every game. Every...game. My solution is to ignore the game until completion, then take joy in the loss by one of them, not the win by the other.

UVA vs Duke is a true root-for-the-meteor game

21st century QBs Undefeated vs UVA:
MV7, MV5, LT3, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

"Does it get any better than Thursday Night in Blacksburg?" - Reece Davis

I don't want to live in a world where UVA wins a national championship in a sport that anyone actually cares about.

"Lunch has been cancelled today due to a lack of hustle...deal with it."

NO!  NO!  NO!

Reason that I have used with my friends who have asked the same thing:

"Is Ohio State rooting for Michigan?"

Ends all debate.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

"I don't know what a Hokie is, but God is one of them" -Lee Corso

Outside of Dayton, I probably have a problem with any of the remaining teams winning the natty.

Scratch that, Dayton started the crumbling of my bracket when they beat OSU. Oh well.

I'm secretly pulling for Dayton. Partly because of living there part-time now, but mostly due to their epic celebrations after winning. Obviously, there was the headline troll of OSU, but then the President of the University frikkin' crowd-surfed at the after party for the 'Cuse win.

Achievement unlocked: All of the Fullers

Don't worry, your secret is safe here....on the internet.

But what if it means shutting up the Go SEC chants (again)?

Still no.

Not even then. And if you look at the schedule, the only thing they might be silencing is Big 10 talk, then maybe Florida, then maybe Zona or Future ACC member L'Ville.

Which wallet is yours?

The one that says "Bad Motherfucker"

My response to anyone who wants uva to win anything:

I want to tell them what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit they are!
Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where's the Tylenol?

West Virginian by birth, Hokie by choice

That's absurd. I hope loluva is knocked off as soon as possible.
What?

I'm already wearing my Michigan State hat. I can't wait for Brandon Dawson to slam it down multiple times tomorrow, Denzel Valentine have some wicked sweet passes, Keith Appling drive in the lane and get the crazy scoop shot, and have Adreian Payne soar for an offensive board and slam it down.

So no, I am not rooting for UVA.

Go Green

Be sure to have some couches ready to burn after the game - might as well go whole hog with the celebrations because they'll be doing the full WVU routine in East Lansing.

I'd rather hit myself in the nuts with a rubber hammer than cheer for those Zima sipping lunatics

Pulling for UVA is like doing that one weird/kinky girl that has liked you for a really long time but you don't want your friends to know and then after figuring out she taped it. You just stay far away from those situations

JUGS for Days

Well that turned into an oddly specific scenario.

Babcock...time to stick it in...again.

Fosterball

They have gone as far as I suspected they would so I see no need for them to go any further. I got Mich. St and Louisville in the final game.

Wanted to add, I was SUPER proud of myself for how quick on my feet I was yesterday. When my LOLUVA coworker asked me, on a conference call with 30 other people, if I'd be watching the LOLUVA basketball game Friday night, I immediately responded "Well, since the only time I watch UVA sports is when they play VT in football, they ALWAYS lose when I watch. So, yeah. I'll watch."

The other four Fullers would be proud.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

Down go the boo hoos. Couple good games to end the night.

WahooHA! I was getting tired of all the Hoo pride around here

The U invented Swag, but UVA invented Smug.

VT '10, Born & Raised in the 804. Hokies, Keydets, Army Black Knights, NY Giants, NY Rangers, and ATL Braves.

I'm sure we'll have to put up with it for a while....hopefully the baseball team brings them back to earth a bit this weekend. Hokies lost 2-1 tonight. Perhaps Buzz can ground them twice next year, after an epic beatdown at Lane.

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

This would be a much sweeter video if only the MVs were playing along.

Might as well dedicate the whole song to em

"Does it get any better than Thursday Night in Blacksburg?" - Reece Davis

TSL was trying to jinx them by underhandedly throwing all their support at UVA, knowing the effect it would have. I see your game TSL. I SEE YOUR GAME

At least, I really hope that was your game

21st century QBs Undefeated vs UVA:
MV7, MV5, LT3, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

I placed them realistically in my bracket knowing they would choke. Too bad it was one round early for me but the heart breaking loss brought sweet sweet tears to my eyes.

Should have been class of 2006, ended up class of 2011. Loved every minute of it.

There was a UVA fan on the Sabre who thought it would be a good idea for Bennett to join CBS for the FF and he would definitely be better than Buzz. Even if he does join them, there is no chance he does better than Buzz.

In Sam Rogers we trust.

Its so cute how they're already jealous of our head coach.

Not only that, but its really impressive how they're this jealous while they were a #1 seed in the tourney.

"Does it get any better than Thursday Night in Blacksburg?" - Reece Davis

Someone said on another VT site that if Bo Ryan retires after the season Bennett will be his most likely replacement.

In Sam Rogers we trust.

I would think Shaka would fall over himself trying to get that job. But they'd be very smart to try and hire him away from UVa. And should that happen, the tides of basketball in the commonwealth will have turned on its head.

"Does it get any better than Thursday Night in Blacksburg?" - Reece Davis

Tony's Dad took Wisconsin to a Final Four. I think that is the connection.

Is it still possible for me to root for UVA to lose? Can I still do that?
