We should hire a Lance cracker as our next coach.

I bet yours isn't the only one.

Boardon Hamsay:

Iíve got a raging half chub over this game. If Tennessee doesnít come out of this region, they should get the death penalty.

alohawg:

That's awesome- U Must Be Cinderella

Boardon Hamsay:

1 seeds now 135-1 vs 16 seeds

HamIAm:

On ESPN page, only 5 times out of 135 games has a #16 seed stayed within 5 points of a #1 seed

Then add that it wasn't even close lol wow!!!!

greenEGnHAWGS:

That Lyles kid played out of his mind. Itís funny though...I live in Hokie country and theyíre ecstatic out here.

Boardon Hamsay:

I believe any perfect brackets should now be confined to the Baltimore County area.

Ched "UglyUncle" Carpenter:

First the Roosters now the Retrievers.  Two biggest upsets in basketball history.

hoglady:

The double digit win is shocking.
Somehow that coach got his players to believe - most of the time it's just lip service.


WorfHog:

I never thought I'd see it. Wow! The overall number one and the winner of most of my brackets is gone.

thebignasty:

Unbelievable

sickboy:

Biggest upset in the history of American sports.

And he managed to act like he'd been there before!

Breems:

I mean, was that rigged or something? UVA looked soooo bad.

Letsroll1200:

Hopefully we'll stop hearing about the great ACC

greenEGnHAWGS:

That was one of the most enjoyable non-Hog games Iíve ever watched. The only one that compares is Faruqmanesh taking down Kansas for me. What an unbelievable game!

alohawg:

That #10 will have a story for his grandkids, they all will.

The UVA offense certainly did their part.   Absolutely abysmal offense until the last 10 or so minutes....by which time it was really too late with UMBC executing so well offensively.

hoglady:

Kudos to Tony Bennett - Virginia coach.
They just asked him what happened - "We got our butts whipped is what happened".

Iím not a big Hoos fan but I do really like him. Great coach and great guy.


hoglady:

Those Hog fans who quit watching basketball after the Hog loss have missed out.
I'm in a much better mood now after watching Nevada beat Texas in OT and now this.

They really did.  Looked nothing like the team they have been all season.   They just lost to arguably the worst team in the tournament by 20.  Inexplicable.

He sounded like it - he went on to say "I told my team in the locker room we've made history this year, won the most games ever in the ACC and now the only #1 seed to ever be beaten by a 16 seed."

Letsroll1200:

That fundamental basketball is outdated! Will Tony Bennett change his system to fit the times? I love it!

Keep trying. 

greenEGnHAWGS:

Interestingly enough, one of my good friends up here in VA is a huge Hoos fan and he said that they were in trouble ever since they lost their 6th man. I donít even know his name and he comes off the bench, but he said that once he saw that he was out that the writing was on the wall for an early exit...he just wasnít expecting THAT early.

Barkley pretty much said if Bennett wants to win NCAA games he needs to change his system.
That the game has changed and Virginia is going to have to change with it.


MDGoHawgs:

I live 20 minutes from UMBC and two of my best friends went there. It's indescribable how the campus and area is right now. UMBC no longer stands for U Made Bad Choices.

I agree. UVA struggles in the tourney.

They beat the best of the best all season. Defense and fundamentals aren't dead. They don't need to change the system.

Bennett was like an alternate reality version of CMA tonight. UMBC had nothing to lose and came out firing like most of those teams do. They happened to be hot. UVA waited until late in the 2nd half to move from a crawl to a walk and it was too late. While you don't have to overhaul the system, at least allow some flexibility under urgent conditions.

Getting beat by 20 to a team that lost by 44 to Albany. I never pick Virginia in my bracket to go far. They can't keep up if a team gets over 60 points.

BadHog:

Fire the coach now!


jgphillips3:

I do have to say, I no longer feel bad about losing.  Since the field went to 64, this is the first #16 to take down a #1.  I mean, how can I even be mad about losing when I try to fathom the VIRGINIA fan baseís humiliation right now.

HamIAm:

There are no perfect brackets left.

UMBC shot 67% against the pack-line defense and downed 12 treys on 24 attempts.  They scored over 1.2+ points per possessions.  UVA is no Albany-NY, who held UMBC to 39 points on 0.58 ppp.  Basketball is just not deterministic.  Bennett took the red pill and is wishing he had stuck with the blue one.

Tejano Jawg:

In my bracket, I had Virginia winning it all. Does this hurt my odds?

hoglady:

I'm just glad I didn't see Coach Bennett bawling on National TV because they lost the game (wish Roy Williams would take note).

liljo:

...and I thought Buffalo kickin' Arizona's behind was special...

This one will probably be a future movie.

U Must Be Cinderella....I like that!


cram224:

Seen where UMBC was also noted for having a great Chest Team.

hawgball40:

you retards realize virginia was without their best offensive player right(and coincidentally the only nba caliber player on their team)
