     I like it!

  • The White Tiger

     One of the best possible draws we could have gotten

  •  Let’s hear your early predictions for Michigan’s game and the challenge itself…

    • Maizerage05

      Unfortunately, I see the Challenge ending in a 6-6 tie…

      Winners:

      Purdue
      Georgia Tech
      Illinois
      MICHIGAN
      Clemson
      Ohio
      NC State
      BC
      MSU
      Minnesota
      Wake
      UNC
       

      • Worth noting that a tie would go to last year’s winner: the Big Ten.

  • Athens Maize Rage

    I say Michigan 68-60, B10 wins the challenge again….8-4 or 9-3.

     UM 64 UVA 52…other results
    Purdue over MiamiNorthwestern over Georgia TechIllinois over MarylandMichigan over VirginiaClemson over Iowa Ohio State over Duke
    IU over NCSt.
    Penn St ties BC 10 -10 after game called because it’s terrible
    MSU over FSU
    Minny over Tech
    Neb. over Wake
    UNC over Wisconsin

    Big Ten takes challene in my overly optimistic viewpoint 9-2-1

    I’m bummed we didn’t get UNC for selfish reasons (I live in Raleigh) but I do think it’s a good draw.  I’ll go with M 67 UVA 59.

    I wonder how much Darius leaving changed our potential match-up…

       Nice to know another fellow North Carolinian is in the house, I am from Greensboro though, I was bummed as well.

        I’m from Greensboro as well, luckily I am a student in Ann Arbor right now.

    Whats up Michigan!  We hope many of you can make the trip to Charlottesville.  The JPJ (John Paul Jones Arena) is a true gem and the place rocks when we have a quality product / quality opponent on the floor.  Michigan definitely qualifies and our product is getting there under Bennett, so the atmosphere should be crazy!   

    Maybe our football teams will be fresh off victories over the Buckeyes and Hokies…nah, lets not get crazy here!

      Thanks for the post, uva!  We’ll be looking forward to the game.  feel free to stop by for a scouting report!

    What about Texas, is that still a possibility?

  • ZRL

    I like the B10 jumping out to a 4-2 lead with Purdue, Northwestern, Michigan, and OSU winning on Tuesday, before the ACC comes back on Wednesday with BC, Virginia Tech, Wake, and UNC winning. Ends in a 6-6 tie.

    wooooo!  so perfect!  I move to charlottesville in 6 days!

    Unrelated to this particularly, but Darius Morris has moved to #17 overall on nbadraft.net’s latest Mock Draft and seems to be projected in the first round on every draft website.  Looks like it was a good decision for him to leave, although the prime reason for this jump may be how weak of a draft class this is.

    • JeffW

      On the other hand, Chad Ford’s latest mock doesn’t have Morris going in the first round.  I’m of the belief that Morris would have best positioned himself for long-term success by staying at least one more year, where he’d have a better chance to work on diversifying his game in a way that’s tough to do at the NBA level.
