Try to tear down General Lee; lose to UMBC. :lol:
To the left, illegal aliens are "dreamers", patriots are "deplorable", islam is the “religion of peace” and NRA members are "terrorists"

I don't watch college basketball much. How in the hell was UVA a #1 & Baltimore Co only a #16? I watched the 2nd half. and Baltimore Co was so much better than UVA. It wasn't even close.

I had UVA winning in one of my brackets. Wtf??!!!

UVGay? You realize your school is known for making football games look like a pride parade, right?

UVA’s defense is terrible. Or at least it was the 2nd half last night. Baltimore County 53 points 2nd half. Went through the UVA defense like it wasn’t even there.

It’s a Va thing. UVGay- a bunch of elitist snobs.

With their shirts like referring to them vs Va Tech as ‘culture vs agriculture’, ‘all dirt road lead to Va Tech’, referring to JMU as ‘Just Missed UVA’.

They don’t have a campus, they have ‘The Grounds’.
They don’t have freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors. They have 1st year, 2nd year, 3rd year, 4th year..
They wear ties to football games, link arms and sway to their faggoty school anthem.

If you hung out on their campus in the 90s you could cut the air of their sweater vest wearing, Zima drinking, elitist snobbery with a knife. Night and day from the friendly vibe you got from hanging out at VT.

UVA in football will play the other Virginia I-AAs W&M, UR, and VMI. But de spite JMU & UVA only being 50+ miles apart, ever since JMU beat them in 1982 (JMU’s 3rd year if I-AA football) it is a well known fact that they have refused to reschedule JMU (last time the 2 schools played was 1983) even though JMU has wanted to play them. No other public P5 within 3 hours (VT, UNC, NC St, UMD, JMU, WVU) has ducked JMU like they have. Bunch of pussies.

We beat them by 25 or something. The American East is a joke of a conference. But god damn! I have to give the University of Catonsville credit. They routed them good. Still a sterile school with out a football team.

UConn's women only beat SFPA by 88 points, so there are some clear signs of cracking in the Auriemma dynasty. :coffee:

Fair enough. I have a coworker who went there and he's pretty down to earth. But he's from MT.

UVA has one of the best defenses in college basketball.

Sometimes **** happens. First time this **** has happened. But, UVA does normally have a great defense.

Hat tip to you guys beating us (VT, not UD - you guys could do that in your sleep) in Blacksburg a few years back.

One decent thing about UVA though is that they've got so much money that you can literally start any club and get insane amounts of money from the student activities fund by simply keeping a journal. I told my kids (now proud VCU and VT grads) that they should go there, start a new secret society called the "8"s, spraypaint 8s all over campus, apply for $888K in funding, and when asked what it's for respond with "it's a secret, but it promotes diversity." They'd probably get it...

I had a good friend who went to JMU first, transferred to W&M and then got his masters at UVA. He was not an elitist, he didn't wear sweater vests, and he didn't drink Zima.

UVgay fans made a road trip up to Towson for a lacrosse game. They got **** abused in the stands with their knit ties and sweaters over the shoulders. I didn’t think students still dressed that way. I almost felt sorry for them. Almost.

Elaborate. Everything I'd heard before this year was that a 16 seed had never beaten a 1 seed. And I Googled the 1998 NCAA basketball tournament to check. Looked at several links it it looks like Harvard was not in that tournament. Here's one example:

https://www.cbssports.com/collegebasket ... yyear/1998

Did a "find" on "Harvard" and got "No matches."

Yes the women from Harvard in '98 led by WNBA first round choice Allison Feaster knocking off Stanford.
