ZION HATE WEEK

Once again, I appreciate Joe and ESPN's collaboration for this excellent Tracker feature

Zion is watching. Zion is judging. Zion is life.

I mean, in our ACC Tournament Game against Miami, ESPN really hit on what mattered most

And then against FSU, they came with the blistering hot takes

Its like they don't even realize how fortunate they were they didn't have to face JRob this year.

Lets get it on. BEET DUKE.

Man I'm excited about this game Fam! I cant imagine how the team feels!!

Zion is a really good basketball player. ESPN sucks ass.

Yeah Zion hasn't given us any reason to hate him. Other than his terrible taste in schools. He seems like a good kid. It's not his fault the media shoves him down our throats 24/7.

He's a talented, hard working, dedicated individual and by all accounts a great teammate. Can't hate that kid. His rat-faced coach, I'll hate all day everyday.

Yeah even in his interviews with the media he seems fed up with how ridiculous they're treating him. They asked Tacko something like: "are you gonna let Zion dunk on you" Tacko responded basically No. They asked Zion what he though of that he said "Well do you think the guy was going to say I was going to dunk on him?"

He's a really good kid unfortunately went to a school we don't like and has the national media riding him not really by his choice.

(add if applicable) /s

and I'm sure hes earned some love this year due to the fact that he could've stopped playing a la kyrie irving (frankly I probably would have too in his position). He obviously loves the game and is just a competitive and good guy. I have a lot of respect for him, damn shame hes playing for duke

Taylor, looking desperately throws it deep..HAS A MAN OPEN DANNY COALE WITH A CATCH ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE FIVE!!!!....hes still open

He's a good kid, and I have nothing against him for that. He'll be fun to watch in the NBA for a long time.

That said, I don't buy for a second that he didn't know the ESPN hype that he was signing up for when he declared to Duke. And if not him, those in his circle who were swaying his decision making certainly did. Especially after seeing what ESPN has done with all 'face' athletes since Tebow. While its not his fault ESPN is ESPN, he's also not completely blameless for it.

It's also not the media's fault they "shove him down our throats 24/7."

Their job is to cover newsworthy stories, and he's the best 18-year-old basketball player in almost 20 years. If LeBron James had played college basketball, people would have complained about his coverage too.

The doll's trying to kill me and the toaster's been laughing at me.

There are other interesting things going on in sports outside of Boston, New York, LA, and Bama, and Duke.

Yep. In fact, I think that's where the more interesting things happen.

21st century QBs Undefeated vs UVA:
MV7, MV5, LT3, Josh Jackson, Jerod Evans, Michael Brewer, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

The Tournament hasn't really had any true chaos, yet.

Lets have some fun.

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

After last night and the way the refs just let him running back style run over people I'm not sure what anyone in college can do to stop him.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Zion Williamson anagrams to I Small Onion Wiz.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Coincidentally onions and whiz is the ideal cheesesteak

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

"Whiz" is a funny way to spell "provolone."

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

Provolone has no flavor change my mind.

Feels like you're chewing a rubber glove. No argument here.

REALLY? The #1 most commonly made argument against provolone is that its flavor is too strong and pungent, and you're out here saying it has no taste? I think the problem is you, bud. Provolone is the best cheese for cheesesteak. If you wanna go out of the box, do pepper jack.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Depends on the brand/manufacturer, some are very mild with almost no flavor and some are strong. Provolone piccante will always be the sharpest/strongest flavor.

This guy cheeses.

Provolone on my sammy almost everyday. But I will eat aged Gouda over all others.

Smoked gouda. FTFY.

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

Aged is better. Try it Mikey, try it.

You want the best Gouda?

Reypenaer from Amsterdam. They just started carrying it at Harris Teeter and it's really good. Not kidding, it's that good.

And if you do get to Amsterdam, I highly recommend a visit.

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

I feel like it contains more sodium (& thus more flavor) than Swiss. IMOP Swiss is the least flavored cheese.

Waho's suck
Uva swallows

I would agree. Swiss cheese to me tastes (and feels) like eating aged plastic.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

You must be getting the wrong provolone, like others have said...

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

Which is good because apparently the OP plans to root vegetable Duke this week.

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

This one legitimately made me laugh at my desk. Well played

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

I saw him catch a ridiculous lob last night and thought, "Oh no, Belichick is really gonna try and convince Zion to replace Gronk."

In Sam Rogers we trust.

He would probably be a good tight end, if he wasn't getting ready to make silly money at BB.

He would probably be a good tight end, if he wasn't getting ready to make silly FULLY GUARANTEED money at BB.

FTFY

Zion actually should have been a FB tight end. But our coaching staff would have turned him into a D' line man.

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Newsome woulda made him a hell of an offensive tackle

15 Straight

If you ain't cheating you ain't Zion.

Zion is a huge kid in a man's body having fun and living the dream. I love the kid!

I despise Duke and EZ(zion)PN.

Here's to hoping our boys come out on fire Friday night!!

Is it basketball season yet?

Why are we hating on Zion Debose? He is going to step up for us on the defensive line next year.

Are there other Zions out there? Never heard of him...

The only Zion I know or care to know about.

God, I hate the purple pants

Me too, but that's Chicago maroon.

Late in the game when Coach K gets that sense of deja vu...he'll know...Zion is about to fall! Welcome to the matrix! FAM!

"Take care of the little things and the big things will come."

Against UNC, Zion lasted only slightly longer than rick pitino

Who's Zion? Is he good? I haven't heard much about him this season.

"Go Hokies!" - Thomas Jefferson
@HaydenDubya

i can't hate him, Lakers are tanking to get in the lottery and I am sure they will freeze the envelope so we get him so...

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
“I served in the United States Navy"

Zion Williamson wears Sam Rodgers basketball shorts under his Duke shorts and wishes he was half as intimidating on the hardwood.

I really couldn't remember how it was spelled and was too lazy to look it up. I have to lay myself at the mercy of TKP for all eternity for blaspheming our great walk-on.

BEET DUKE.

Beat Dook.

FTFY.

You will see this game, this upset and this sign next on ESPN Sportscenter. Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7

I am pretty sure that last night I heard the announcer say that Zion is separated from everybody else by only 94 miles.

"Don't go to, go through"

I thought it was a reference to how tall he was, that his head was 94 miles from his toes

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

It amazes me that Zion Williamson is 6'7" 285 and the guy who was guarding him last night was twenty-five pounds heavier and nearly a foot taller.

That would be nice to have one of them right now to guard Zion.

But is he OKG?

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

No that's Taco!

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

I feel for Tacko, that was not a foul. Duke/5 star player bias strikes again. Let's pack out DC and take down those smug assholes

My hope is that with how much attention the bad officiating is getting since the Duke/UCF game, the NCAA is telling whoever will be reffing our game to "even it out a little"

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

I kinda doubt it, I feel like all the calls will go in Zion's favor

The most amazing thing about Zion is that Kansas, Louisville, Arizona, and Miami offered him 250K to sign, yet he signed with Duke for free. Amazing.

Zion is hoops phenom & prodigy [am I doing this right?].

Waho's suck

Zion snitched on Outlaw because Ty wouldn't share the good stuff after the Hokies beat Duke in Blacksburg

Couldn't figure where to post this- so here you go

You put those words together, those are my favorite words, Popeyes and bahama
- Mike Burnup

Duke, schmook: Hokies, after win, ignore hype

Of course, the win last month comes with a large asterisk, as Williamson was sidelined with a knee injury. Since returning to action in the ACC tournament, he has averaged 27.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per game, and Duke is 5-0.

...

"We played 12 games without [Robinson]," Virginia Tech coach Buzz Williams said. "It's arguable, but I think he's really important to what we do. I know that's not the storyline today. But he has, for sure, made an impact in the progression of our program."

Glad Buzz said that. But still, eff em. Beat DOOK

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

Good grief, Jay Williams just said Duke is going to win by "10-15 possibly more"

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

Seth Greenberg said jrob was being too cocky by saying it was just another game for us. And stating the fact that "we've beaten them 3 out of the 4 years he's been here".

Got this on DVR too late for me!

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Zion Williamson smacks opposing players in the face and they get called for the foul... Oh wait these posts are meant to be satirical not factual.

Okay let's stop pretending that call was going to change the outcome of the game.

Not /s

(add if applicable) /s

I don't care what any of you say, Zion is fun to watch! Zion If any single Duke player was responsible for our loss last night it was Tre Jones not Zion.

I wish the kid the best of luck and I'm happy we don't have to play him again.

Is it basketball season yet?

Zion is a galoot and Duke is trash
