There will definitely be a MyPillow commercial on the ACC Network at some point.

TIL the My Pillow guy was a crack addict who didn't even remember coming up with the idea because he was so strung out at the time.

Wow took me a minute to realize this was MY. I was wondering why you posted a gif of an elderly asian man.

From when they were in Maui in November...

They had some fun with it. Even better shot down below in this thread.

FAM! Big 3 in the 2nd OT to put VT up 2. That was the swing of the scoring that we needed.

FAM!!! So proud of this team and their no-quit attitude. To get beat up in the paint all night and fighting to stay in it - this team has moxie. Big shots and big plays at big times by so many different guys. Congrats to them.

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

I don't care how "bad" the Tarholes are. Any win over UNCheat is a great win!! Radford is my new favorite Hokie (Cone is a close second)!!
LET'S GO!!!!! ๐Ÿฆƒ๐Ÿ€

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

Fam they just kept shooting and kept shooting. Great bounce back from Saturday

During the Wake Fam thread, I said this:

"I'm telling my (future) kids that Radford the city and university were actually named after Tyrece Radford"

I'm not telling my kids that anymore. I'm telling everyone I meet.

FAMMMMMM I thought I was gonna die like 5 times that game. But the moment that stands out most is Bede actually nailing that 3!! FAM

Mitch (2)

That was a big shot. And I'm happy for Bede that he made it.

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

I swear there was a sigh when he shot it from the crowd. One of those no, no, no, yes moments.

Huge props to PJ Horne for battling all game and hitting 2 huge clutch free throws at the end of regulation. He had only shot 8 free throws all season before that moment.

Got to win the games in which you are favored, especially at home, especially when you are given the chance to kick UNC while they are down. Rock Chalk?!

Whatever. It was one bad year.

Roy Williiams just got beat in overtime by 2 high school seniors, 2 redshirt freshman and two juniors.

MIke Young for Coach of the year!!

At this point in the season, I don't know how MY isn't at least the ACC coach of the year. I don't know much about what happens outside the ACC but I'd have to think he'd be a strong candidate for national COY too. Much season left though.

If he keeps this up and we get to the tourney I don't see how he doesnt get a bunch of votes for national coach if the year. This guy is coach of big his nuts off.

See anything about our chances of a top 4 seed in the ACC tourney?

They didn't really talk ACCT, but at this stage, it looks like a battle between us and NCSU with Syracuse coming in hot and UVA hanging around.

Seeds #1-2-3 look to be locked up by Duke, Louisville, and FSU.

Who in the hell thought we would be in the top 4 of the ACC standings in late January, UNC would be in LAST PLACE! And UVA is out of the top 25. Mike Young IMO is hands down ACC COY. This guy came home to prove this was his dream job and he will do anything to make us a successful program. I absolutely feel the momentum rising in basketball. Let's freaking go!

I'll admit I wasn't thrilled after his intro press conference. Since he's loosened up and showed his personality I couldn't be happier with the hire. This man is the only person I would want coaching VT basketball.

FAM! CAN WE GET A GIFTORY?

Shout out to the Cassell guard- was lit all night

Edit- also just heard Tre Turner was part of the crowd. Radio guys had a brief interaction with him in post game comments. It's fun when hokies bleed O&M!

That was quite a ride.

Gutsy win over a legit bottomfeeder

Hope they can wins some games now to improve our resume

Hokie Club member since 2017

Nah, I am ok with Carolina not winning another game this season. We can improve our own resume by getting a win vs one of the ACC top 3.

At this point, just winning matters more than the actual ACC teams we beat honestly. Yeah losing to the worst team is bad and beating the best team is good, but the record is gonna be what stands out to people.

UNC dead last? Ya just hate to see it... /s

Effectively lowered my lifespan by at least 6 years tonight with anxiety from this game. Lol

Spamming the UNC Twitter acct with Radford pics?

Edit: cone pics? Magic the gathering pics? Either way it's being spammed and I'm drinking

Man, this team, they are less talented than their record indicates, but they don't quit and really seem to play for each other. I'm quite thankful for what is poised to be an exciting February and March.

Confidence, charisma, and the ability to perform under pressure can make up for inexperience or even a perceived lack of ability.

1-0 every week

That is how you win on belief and intangibles alone. Somebody needs to get CMY a lunch pail. FAM!!

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

I'm convinced Smithfield won that game for us. UNC goes to the line with a chance to extend the lead to 13 (I think). The fans going nuts for free bacon cause those two misses. The fans go even more nuts because they get free bacon, propelling the team to go on a run to cut the lead to 4 and get us back in the game.

They need to figure out how to give out free bacon at football games. Completely changed the game.

Free bacon every time the opposing offense has 2 false starts in a drive.

"That move was slicker than a peeled onion in a bowl of snot." -Mike Burnop

Timeout 4 Bacon

Any time an opposing team has to call a timeout on their opening offensive play. Get loud butts in the seats early.

Admittedly, vouchers for at most 9200~ packs of bacon is much more affordable to Smithfield than 66,000~

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

BOGO bacon coupons or something.

That is totally true- place was lethargic then after that it lit up. Was pretty amazing being there and seeing the energy change.

'Its easy to grin, when your ship comes in, and you've got the stock market beat,

Idgaf that they are bottom feeders this year, a win over UNC is great for a young team building confidence. And coming back and grinding through 2 OT's is a helpful formative experience for when March rolls around.

Anyone else enjoy watching this team as much or more than last year's? Maybe it was the just the rock bottom expectations coming into the season, but I find our wins this year so much more exciting.
