Great video!

The people making these videos have upped their game.

I like the commitment ceremonies for each players profile - and man Ahmed has really changed.

Does this mean Zion is Thanos?

Zion is Thanos confirmed.

Who is Coach K then?

Coach K is definitely Thanos. The players are his Outriders.

I don't know what a Hokie is, but God is one of them!

Who has to be Ant-Man?

I wonder how they get away with using this content (most notably the Avengers symbol near the end). Regardless, the video has me ready to harass every Duke fan I know! Friday can't come soon enough.

All I can think about while watching this is....copyright laws?

Yo if copyright laws were applied in every situation the whole world would be in debt. This is of small significance.

the music seems off, so I don't think it's actually a copy. seems like the Muzak version of Marvel.

No Marvel trademarks were used explicitly, but there are some similarities that might be of issue.

No money is being made on this (and the tangential argument to tickets sold for the sweet 16 would be hard to make) so suing for about $0 in damages isn't a smart use of resources. Marvel Studios could want to make an example if they don't want anyone sampling their property though, but I doubt it.

(I know absolutely nothing of how the legal system works) but I'd expect a cease and desist letter before anything, and even that would take way too long to arrive before this video became irrelevant

It's almost free hype for their movie

I don't know specifics but doesn't VT have a licensing deal with Marvel? There are clothing items with Marvel characters on them you can buy at the VT bookstore

I'm pretty sure Mickey the Mouse is ok with it...

Let's Go

HOKIES

Anyone ever been able to dig up a high res version of the VT FSU one?

Have the other one up in the man cave, would like to keep the series going...

We are the Hulkies now. Part of the Marvel Universe. So it's all good.

Loved to hear Blackshear naming some of the guys from recent past seasons that have helped us get to where we are today (Wilson, Bibbs, etc)

Love it. In all honesty, where would a win over Duke in the Sweet 16 rank on the list of all time wins in Virginia Tech Athletics? It would have to be up there.

Depending on what the following seasons bring it would either be the basketball team's 1995 Sugar Bowl or 2014 Ohio State game.

It'll still be damn hard to ever beat the softball team's win over the US National Team though.

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

I like the way you said this. I think it would be VT basketball's equivalent of those things.

Some things are difficult to compare, but it would arguably be the best for basketball.

Justin Robinson is Captain America. Ty Outlaw would have to be Hawkeye.

Blackshear = Hulk
NAW = Thor
Hill = Iron Man

Yeah, I really don't like it when Blackshear is angry.

Woohoo! Teabag Paulus Zion!!!!!

SIAP, is it Friday yet? TIA

Buzz also went back on Pardon My Take to talk about our tourney run and the came coming up against Duke. Fun interview. I'll definitely miss things like this if he does leave after this season.
