Cavalier Preview: Iowa State

So tomorrow night, the Hoos get back into action on the hardwood.  But it is not against a team they would really like to see at this juncture. Iowa State is 11-2 on the season and is playing great ball, but they have yet to crack the Top 25. Why is that? Well for one, […]

Merry Christmas Ya’ll

“Carve the turkey, turn the ballgame on. . . Hallelujah, everybody say cheese Merry Christmas from the Family” -Robert Earl Keen It’s about that time of the year again, where visions of touchdowns dance in Wahoo fans’ heads.  And while most of the students are out playing the “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” party game […]

Bowl Playoff System: National Championship

An upset to some.  Predictable to others.  But it is still a great matchup.  Who came out on top? Before we get going, here are the ground rules again. As we have been preaching all season (big thanks to Lambeth Field writer brodonnell), it is a 16 team bracket with each conference having an automatic qualifier plus […]

A Tall Order

As I tweeted on Friday, my inner sci fi nerd tied up my inner sports nerd and dragged me to Tron IMAX 3d.  And the movie just so happened to be at the same time as the Oregon game.  When I got home, I was greeted with two surprises. Virginia had beat Oregon 63-46. They […]

Bowl Playoff System: Semifinals

It looks like the BCS got it right up to now.  All four top seeds advanced to the semifinals.  But now we move to neutral fields.  How will it play out? Before we get going, here are the ground rules again. As we have been preaching all season (big thanks to Lambeth Field writer brodonnell), […]

Basketball Preview: Oregon

Well they might be playing for a national championship in football, but the Oregon Ducks are in the midst of rebuilding their basketball program. Virginia is playing their 3rd game against a Pac-10 team, and if the first two were any indication how this game will go, we will be in for a long night.  […]

Bowl Playoff System: Quarterfinals

Other than Boise State, all the top seeds advanced, but how would the teams fair from here? Before we get going, here are the ground rules again. As we have been preaching all season (big thanks to Lambeth Field writer brodonnell), it is a 16 team bracket with each conference having an automatic qualifier plus […]

Bowl Playoff System: Round 1, Bottom Half

The top seeds held serve in the top half, but will it be the same on the bottom half?  Before we get going, here are the ground rules again. As we have been preaching all season (big thanks to Lambeth Field writer brodonnell), it is a 16 team bracket with each conference having an automatic […]

Bowl Playoff System: Round 1, Top Half

Well here we go folks! It’s tournament time. That’s what we would be saying if there really was a football playoff.  But lucky for us, we can create a bracket and simulate the games.  Before we get into the top half of the first round, here are the ground rules. As we have been preaching […]

Just a Shout Away

Hello Fellow Wahoo Fans!!!! Don’t want to let ya’ll think I forgot about you.  I told you that it would be slow, but I didn’t imagine it would be this slow.  The kids are still on break and we won’t have another contest until the Men’s Basketball game on Friday versus Oregon.  What will we […]

Bowl Playoff System: The Final Rankings

Well my Wahoo friends, the b-ball team recorded a nice win in Blacksburg to ease the heartache of losing to the Hokies time and again to go along with another impressive road victory at Minnesota. Way to go Tony! As for football, Auburn and Oregon handled their business leaving little debate as to the two […]

One Ugly Win

I apologize. For all of you who actually went to or listened to the game, I’m sorry.  I know it was a win, but trying to put a positive spin on this game would not do the effort justice.  A quick glance at the final score shows that the Hoos won 54-44 in a very […]

Cavalier Preview: Radford

So just like I was obligated to continue doing football write ups throughout the season, I have the same responsibilities to discuss tonights opponent in the Radford Highlanders.  And when you think Virginia might have a little hangover from the road-trip, RU is the perfect remedy. For those not familiar with the Kilters, Radford is […]

A Shorter Drive Home

Most Wahoo fans know the trip: I-64 West over Afton Mountain, I-81 South past Roanoke, Exit 118B to 460 West, third right after the first cow.  Conservatively, it takes about 2 hours, 15 minutes, but it can be done under two with a slightly “leadier” foot.  Yours truly has even hit a 10-point buck around […]

The Shammy Picks: Stuffed

The Shammy took some time off to stuff himself over Thanksgiving.  And in the end, I got stuffed, pick wise.  A better week, but not great.  Hey, there was only one way The Shammy was going to go after the previous week, but still managed to drop a couple more in the hole.  Hopefully this […]
