2019 Bracketology Thread

JoeyBrackets moves VT up to a 3-seed...against Radford. donotwant.jpg

None of the projections on Bracket Matrix released in the last two days have the team lower than a 4-seed, with the consensus being a 3. "BetZigSports" moves for great justice and has the Hokies as a 2-seed.
TeamRankings apparently didn't like the offensive struggles against BC and GT, and dropped the teams odds of a championship to 1.7% .

That seals it...we're a basketball school

Way to early to talk Bracketology for me. Let's see what happens after we win our first 10 ACC games.

Let's see what happens after we win our first 10 18 ACC games.

Fixed that for you

I was walking out of the ND game yesterday and my 14 year old son said, "That felt great! But beating FSU the first week of football felt great too."

Ouch. Yep. ND could definitely prove to be terrible and that win worth very little.

Its an ACC win and it was an easy one. It may not be worth a win against UNC or LOLUVA but its still a good win.

ND was 10-3 through non-conf play, not total scrubs but not world beaters, but still an ACC win. I think at the end of the year that win will carry positive weight, but we do open against ACC teams expected to be in the bottom 5 of the conference, so withhold your hopes until after the UVA game.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

This now makes Notre Dame 0-2 vs. teams from the New River Valley.

ND is very bad this year. I still don't know how they beat Purdue, or how Purdue has struggled so much, but they almost lost to Coppin State before playing us. That would be like our football team beating a D2 school by one score.

Rip his freaking head off!

Glass half full? /s


Bracket Matrix currently has as our first round game (if seeded by order of "highest 1 seed vs lowest 16", etc) as being against....


Old Dominion


I don't like this game anymore

Not a great matchup. I saw them in person last year, and they have a lot of size and use it to their advantage. We would be the clear favorite, but it wouldn't be easy.

Way. Way. Way. Way. Too early for my superstitious taste.

Is this thread to talk about the various scenarios which lead to VT being in the first four out?

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

That was a painful leg to give you. But I did.

Vols Fans are more delusional than LOLUVA

Hokie in Tennessee

you'd have to be certifiably insane to think we'll end up there this year

I said the exact same thing in 2010

We were ranked in the first two polls of the 2010-11 season and then never ranked again. We were actually 4-4 through 8 games that season. We were a decent team that year and felt like we had a good shot of getting in the tourney but I was never even close to as confident about that team as this year's team.

I remember when this comment originally said 2007, and I appreciated the irony

"I regret nothing. The end." - Ron Swanson

Yea, i thought it was the 07-08 season so i had to do some digging and i believe i was thinkkng about the 2010 season.

All 15 teams in the ACC have winning records so far. And that means almost nothing. The OOC schedule is just a tease. I love where we are but we will know if we have a real chance at breaking out, in about a month.

Shoot for the moon and have an anyone, anytime, anywhere attitude.

Updated for this week's projections

I don't think I'm going to read any more of these until March.

I'm planning to update them weekly or so until March.

I think I'll start a new one in late February. ;^)

Just hoping they get the West bracket, I live in Salt Lake and I'd love to see the team in person.

"...I'm getting a little tired of hearing how good everybody else is..." -Coach Fu [This week: 1-0]

I live in Cali, and until we jumped up into the top 15 I was hoping that we'd be matched up with a West team and head to San Jose for the first weekend. But then we went and got all good and stuff and ruined everything.

VTECHFAN on TSL has us in Dayton right now.

Is that on the payside? I don't see anything on the free board

Sweet 16 and Elite 8 East regional is in Washington DC/Capital One Arena.... Would be nice if they could make it to at least Sweet 16 to possibly been seen by the NoVA fan base

1/11: VT listed as a 3-seed against Radford in the Hartford Region. Winner would get the winner of VCU and Marquette (STORYLINES EVERYWHERE).

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74
