I typically don't partake in fanbase squabbles between UVA-VT, but I can't resist this morning. Please take some time to read some of UVA's Mens BB board "thesabre", of which i've had great enjoyment this am. Apparently, every team that plays UVA is having one of these nights:
1) Best game they've played all year
2) Most unfair refs all year
When explaining why VT won games against similar opponents (Duke/Pitt):
1) Different team when VT played them
2) Cassel is stupid
I have a ton of UVA friends/former alums, who are all generally reasonable so I don't have a real hatred for them. However, some of the general fanbase is coming out of the word work with the relatively brief bball success. I fear that the fans will become unhinged if UVA goes 1 for 14 in football. As a big fan of all of the VT teams, I would enjoy the same level of success that UVA has in the non revenue sports. Not at the expense of football/basketball.
Sorry for the long post, but this is really a PSA for our fans not to post ridiculousness.
