Lol UVA managed to still be ranked #1 in new AP Top 25

Michigan State #2 at 30 votes behind the Hoos, Villanova drops to #3, Duke is outside of the top 10, and Clemson is the second-highest ranked ACC team at #11.

Hokies get votes and rank in at #30.

Just means we beat the number one team and looks even better. They will lose at Miami this week.

What if i take my life today? Its not like anyone cares anyway

This is great for our resume.

We beat the #1 team in the country in their house.

Go Hokies

Go Falcons

I'm not complaining; a win over #1 looks great to the tournament committee. I hope the Hoos win out until the ACC tournament and help us into a higher seed.

they wont give us credit for beating a #1, since they weren't #1 when we beat them...

I strongly disagree, I hope LOLuva loses the rest of their games.. in all sports.. for all the years to come.

Quality loss.

"For those who have passed, for those to come, reach for excellence."

This bites because I definitely printed out the Cassell Guard tweet saying that they thought they were going to be #1 with the Dikembe Mutumbo GIF saying "no no no" and taped it to my coworker's office door. As soon as the new poll came out he was kind enough to drop by and let me know.

Also sucks because Chris Long feels vindicated now after his GameDay comments to the VT fan who burned him saying he was 0-4 vs VT

Meh, he still doesn't know what it's like to personally beat the Hokies and them being #1 just makes our win look even better. Trash talking points may have disappeared, but the Hokies still win in the end.

If you wanted to know how weak the NCAA field is going to be this year, just remember that UVa rose to #1 despite losing at home to an unranked team that didn't receive a single vote in either poll of that current week, nor was ranked after the loss.

This might be the weakest that college basketball has been in a very long time. Its one of those years that you're going to likely see someone in the 3-5 seed territory win it all once the March Madness chaos begins.

I just don't understand wahoo's bashing of Blacksburg. If you're school isn't a UNESCO heritage site, then its ugly? At some point can we just start calling certain UVA grads morons instead of delusional?

That's funny because how pretty the campus is actually factored into my parents letting me come to Tech. It was a much prettier campus than Syracuse and some of the others schools I visited in High School.

I know we like to poke fun at UVA because they are well, UVA but reading the Sabre today they are weirdly obsessive with dissing us with the fact they are number one.

Umm... congrats I guess? That doesn't change the result of the actual game, but then again Hoo logic is one I will never understand (and never want too.)

In Sam Rogers we trust.

Part of being a Hoo is accepting the fact that you should never, ever, ever, ever directly compare yourself to a Hokie based upon results. It never ends well.

Its all about the perception their shit don't stink. Not that reality that they're our bitch.

"Some days you’re a horse and some days you’re a horse’s ass. I’ve been a horse’s ass for a little while." - Roy Halladay

Agreed. They really seem to think today's ranking changed Saturday night's result. I got pretty drunk Saturday night but I swear I remember us scoring more points than them.

I got pretty drunk Saturday night too, but I swear I remember you as rvaHokie

Lol yeah that's right. I created this account after we beat Ohio State because all my roommates passed out and I wanted to keep talking about the game. But I was drunk that night as well and just made a generic username that I later wanted to change. I knew all I had to do was email Joe and he would change it, but I figured while I was holding out on joining TKPC, I wouldn't ask him to change it. So when I got my confirmation email on Saturday night I decided to go ahead and pull the trigger on the new username.

I figured my Tyrod-nodding-on-the-sideline profile picture would make it easy enough to make the connection. But maybe I should add a temporary signature for clarification purposes.

My first reaction was "huh, I wonder if this new TKPCer knows he's using the same pic as rvaHokie?" and then I saw the TKP bday on your prof and connected the dots

I'm thinking the same thing. About to pull the trigger on TKPC, but I don't want to do it with this username, and I can't think of a good one. Maybe I should put up a post about it.

I work in hooville. I brought in 14 victory doughnuts in Nov. And I brought in victory bagels yesterday, just not the 61 bagels that my son said I should bring!

The rationalization borders on insane. My co-workers said "it always amuses us how much you care that you beat us. we don't care about beating you at all. we're all about academics."

I guess if i'd just lost on my home court, with Gameday in the house, in front of the nation, and also lost 14 straight so that football is no longer a "rivalry", just an annual loss, then I guess I'd rationalize too.

But did those hoo-wads take a donut/bagel or not? They should be thankful that you are such a generous Athletic Overlord.

we're all about academics.

The crowd I saw on ESPN said otherwise.

Did you get the bagels from Bodo's? That place is awesome.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

My co-workers said "it always amuses us how much you care that you beat us. we don't care about beating you at all. we're all about academics."

1. Not caring about basketball is only slightly more believable than caring about men's tennis.
2. UVA is not an Ivy League school, They give athletic scholarships, in sports others don't care about, just for athletic bragging rights. Pretending like you root for an Ivy League School does not make it one.
3. It must REALLY eat them up when we beat them in STEM competitions then. Bring pastries after the next engineering competition.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

I agree that that are weirdly obsessive with shit canning us in any fashion but I will say there is a lot more Hokie trolls over there than over here on TKP who give us a bad look.

A great video of the team. Show's the stretch of wins from UNC to BC. I just really love how Buzz interacts with his players. Feel like these type of videos need to get more press, and more retweets. Recruits and their parents need to see what type of program we're running here. Because I think it could be a difference maker for those recruits that want to not only develop a inside game, or a 3 point stroke, but want to learn how to become real MEN. So glad Whit made this hire:

Quality Defenses I've Encountered Since VT's Win Saturday Night:

1. "Yea... but you only beat us by one point, and it took you overtime to do it..."

2. "Cool.. sure you hold the Commonwealth Cup, I'm sure 'Bama is really jealous"
- WTF???? how is that relevant?

3. "We are #1, and you guys aren't even ranked"
- yet us beating you at home, on Game Day propelled you up the polls, doesn't that mean we're good?

4. "At least we've won National Championships"
- In regards to my comment that regular season rankings in men's basketball really have no importance
- and technically no, you don't, we're discussing basketball, not synchronized swimming

After this year's football game, I defriended someone on Facebook (call me petty) because of his asinine comments regarding Point #4, Bullet #2. It was the day after the game and I told him to follow the red ball; it's football season. He proceeded by posting a Wikipedia link to their Men's Tennis team. Yep, we're done.

I literally told the girl that brought up Alabama football during a VT/UVA rivalry basketball discussion: "Just go back to your cubicle and think about how stupid what you just said was"

Its amazing the mental gymnastics needed to get over the fact that we ruined their Gameday by winning in their house. We took their big night and made it about us. So they are #1, big f'n deal. We won.

Ask Tom Brady what he'd rather have experienced this past week, seeing the Pats ranked as the #1 team in the 2018 power rankings, or have beaten the Eagles in Minnesota.

You're thinking like a reasonable person though.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

They also always say "team national championships" because some of them realize how good we are at certain individual sports (track and field, wrestling) and need their point to stand. Let's be honest, our 10 national titles in hammer and weight throw from 2005-2013 are way more badass than all of their swimming and tennis championships combined.

Not trying to rain on the parade here but we've never had an individual champion in wrestling.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

We had a runner up

What if i take my life today? Its not like anyone cares anyway

To continue the theme, ESPN's bracketology had us as a 10 seed playing Michigan last week and it's been updated today with us as an 11 seed playing a 6 seed Michigan. No sense makes sense.

Must be a salty WAHOO writer that's the typical logic for them

Honestly not that surprised. Losing at home to St. John's was a pretty bad loss for Nova.

Losing at home to the Hokies...quality loss. Operative word there being "loss". Hoos can react to that however they like, it's a true win/win for the good guys. Win in that they, you know, won. And also a win because we handed the #1 team a loss in their building to add to our tournament resume.

But I'm sure they will only credit us a victory over the #2 team and not give us credit for a #1 win

The subtlety with which the powers that be used to influence the polls is lost on the Wahoos. They aren't bright enough to realize that by attaining the #1 spot by moving up 1 spot should really be a constant reminder that they lost on their home court to the Hokies by 1.

I guess VT will just have to beat them again in the ACC tournament.

For me, they should have had to earn that number one spot back, but this does show the respect the committee has for ACC basketball.

I suppose we should pull for ACC teams to do better, since we want more of them in the NCAA tournament for more money. For VT basketball.

I have a three step goal.

Step one: beat the boo hoos in hooville.

Step two: beat them in the ACC tournament.

Step three: go deeper in the tournament than them, preferably being in the same bracket.

I never met a project that couldn't justify a new tool.

Step 4: quite literally, profit.
