Its Buzzketball's Edition of Hate Week

I am equal parts hype, and dread, over this UVA game. On one hand the shooting @GT ugliness has me concerned. If GT holds us to 52, UVA must be licking their chops. JRob has been in a funk for a while, and we are in trouble if it spreads to NAW. On the other hand, that defense was rock solid. I have been conditioned by hokie sports to expect the worst in these sort of games. KBJr gets into foul trouble, and no one can buy a basket from outside. I have a theory that we have been winning in the ACC so far because of our superior conditioning, we hung neck and neck with BC and ND for the first half, and then just gassed them in the second. But I have to imagine that the likes of UVA and Duke have the stamina to go step for step. I have no idea what is going to happen on Tuesday, but I do know that hate keeps you warm!

Go Hokies! Beat loluva!

The title makes it sound like we're hating on Buzzketball.

Anyway, fuck UVA.

Let's Go!!!

Danny Coale Caught That Ball!!!

-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

Tony Bennett thinks a well executed ball screen is the most exciting play in basketball.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Well this should hit 100 legs

Would be awesome if every Hokie going to the game found a cheap UMBC shirt to wear...

I "found" one the very first day the UMBC bookstore put their commemorative shirts on sale. And paid $10 shipping for a $23 shirt. No regrets.

That's the one!

I ordered one during the game.

Rip his freaking head off!

I was there in person to witness this sweet, sweet moment. They were selling March Madness shirts for each team in the regional and I was able to scoop one of the UMBC shirts before they sold out. One of my greatest sports-related memories of my life thus far and I'm going to have to witness some really awesome stuff in my life to knock it out of the top 3.

EDIT: being at the game was the best memory part, not buying the shirt haha

Tony Bennett thought this was the year the Commonwealth Cup would come to Charlottesville.

Tony Bennett thinks that Sinatra was WAY overrated.
He also believes January is perfect for tailgating before a basketball contest with a crisp white wine. Or warm zima with a cinnamon stick.

@BuryHokie #ThanksFrank

At first I wasn't going to leg you because the jokes were so obvious.

But then you threw in the warm zima and cinnamon stick and turned old and done into all new 'hoo hatin' ground.

I'm now morbidly curious what other ways they take their zima.

Huh. I always figured they just opened it, let it breathe, decanted it and got Carruthers to pour it when it reached cellar temperature.

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

Tony Bennett doesn't like Toy Story because "toys don't do that when we're not around".

I'm so confused right now. What exactly are we hating?

Is it basketball season yet?

What are we hating? Let me just reach in and pull something out of the hopper...
Oh...What's this?

I got some old guy hate for that..."guy"

FOSTERS: Australian for defense

I wonder if he thinks that the "don't care/I want to be a comfy girl" look looks good on him? I sport this type of bun when I am hanging around the house and don't care what I look like--like right now. Keep in mind that I am a girl...

It's crystalized hoo tears.

I'll be honest, while I have no problem hating UVA and their despicable alums & fanbase, it's hard to work up too much hate for Tony Bennett.

How can you hate him? He gave us the greatest gift of all time. He was the first (and only) 1-seed to lose to a 16-seed in NCAA tournament history. In case you haven't heard.

If you've got hate in your heart, let it out.

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

Tony Bennett is hoping his team will be able to retrieve victory in the Commonwealth Clash because nobody cares about football.

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

Tony Bennett watches Homeward Bound and doesn't get in his feelings when Chance and Sassy leave Shadow at the Railroad Depot.

Hate keeps you warm

Ah, a fellow Sigma appears @TheMVdude

Not great, Bob

I'd rather retake my first semester 1L finals in a language I'm not fluent in than ever root for UVA.

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

UVA lists "Photoshop" in the Additional Skills section of their resume.

Tony Bennett doesn't like retrievers....not...one...bit. his favorite breed is a saint bernard with a tiny keg of zima around its neck

No self respecting Saint Bernard would ever carry a keg with Zima around his neck.

This is Bennett's dog...

Tony Bennett loves the fact that the game is NOT on ESPN.

Tony Bennett moves the snow in front of his car just enough to get out and leaves. Then he comes back and parks in the space that somebody worked to clear completely out, leaving his uncleared spot for somebody else.

Tony Bennett only clears his windshield and let's the rest of the snow on his car blow off while driving.
