Me too, I think Duke played them very tough and probably should have won that game.

UVa doesn't have enough fire power to be he second best team, IMO. Their gaurds have to be good every game in order for them to compete. That is a lot to ask.

Completely agree. I'm pretty sure I'm the only UVa fan who posts on here, along with all the Terp fans, the Duke fan (you know who), and a couple Carolina fans (beaner and ND most notably).

I try not to get too excited, even though this is an unbelievable time to be a UVa basketball fan. We haven't really even sniffed the tournament since 2002, and haven't been since 2001, so this season has been really exciting (minus the Puerto Rico disaster).

Anyways, I agree that there is no way we are the second best team in the ACC. I would say that Duke and BC (even without Williams) are definitely better than us, and VT, FSU, Clemson and Maryland are all in the same boat. Duke is more talented, we got lucky to beat them and we had them at home, we needed an unhumanly clutch performance from SS and could've lost on the McRoberts shot at the end of regulation or the Paulus 3 in OT. We also needed a 15 point comeback in the last 4 minutes at Clemson (more of a collapse then a comeback if you ask me, although I certainly took it). All that being said, I still see no reason why we can't finish second or third in the ACC and here is why:

at Maryland

at Virginia Tech

vs Longwood (why???)

vs Florida State

at Miami

vs Georgia Tech

vs Virginia Tech

at Wake Forest

Not counting the stupid Longwood game, I don't see any reason why we shouldn't go 5-2, maybe 4-3 at the worst.

4-3 puts us at 11-5 in the conference. Even 3-4 gives us 10 wins in the conference.

Now while we certainly aren't the second best team in the conference, it doesn't mean that we won't finish second or third.

    • Bleier trade continues to bite the O's last night.  Fry  could not find the plate especially against right-handed batters. Needing to face three batter in not Fry's game.    It didn't affect the outcome because the O's didin't  hit.  However, Fry does not look up to being the 2nd lefties in the pen  which shows how much the O's miss Bleier.  Fry would be a candidate to be sent down but there is no lefty to replace him so he will probably stay in the majors.
    • SummerSlam ‘92 is on FS1.  Quarantine + Nostalgia = Mullet for backwardsk ?
    • I missed another game. My sleep schedule sleep patterns are SOOOOOOOO screwed up... I laid down for a quick nap before the game about 4:30. When I woke up at MIDNIGHT I had missed the entire thing. Turned on the TV to watch the 11:30 replay and THANK GOD the Gnats are back playing! They're the replay tonight... fml     So.... I'm not going to read the thread or the board. Or Roch. It's 1:30 am. I'm having my "morning" glass of coffee (yes BIG TALL GLASS) and I'm going to watch the 9 am MASN replay "live". So I have THAT going for me. 🙃 GO O'S!!!!

    • Now that does make sense: greater risk, greater reward. So do healthy pitchers make more than healthy batters? Serious question.
    • On his pro-rated salary, Cobb would earn @ $4.5MM the rest of this season. That would be nothing for a contending team to take on if they were sold on him putting them over the top. But I can't imagine being so desperate on August 4, 10 games into a 60 game season if I were a decision maker to take on the entirety of his contract.  If a team really wants to gamble a little bit of cash on Cobb to win this year's WS, they may be wrangled into taking half the burden on the 2021 salary, while the Orioles pay half of this season's $4.5MM remaining. This is starting to sound too good to be true!
    • The Cardinals never have a low pick, and yet they have a wonderful farm and consistent success
