Totally agree
We will either be in or out before the ACC tourney starts, despite of what might be said. The past 2-3 years, the NCAA selection has virtually ignored the power conference tourneys.

Agree on the passing.
When this team is really humming on offense- like today- it's fun to watch. I love seeing the ball move around quickly without a lot of dribbling. Pro ball has devolved to a bunch of clearout/isolation plays and that style is starting to infect college as well. Games with high assist ratios are much more entertaining IMHO. When announcers talk about VT being such a good offensive team, the secret sauce is that we just pass better than most.

Probably a Q3 since GT's RPI is 158.
Quadrant 1: Home 1-30; Neutral 1-50; Away 1-75
Quadrant 2: Home 31-75; Neutral 51-100; Away 76-135
Quadrant 3: Home 76-160; Neutral 101-200; Away 136-240
Quadrant 4: Home 161-plus; Neutral 201-plus; Away 241-plus.

The above came from the NCAA's site.

The last 5 mins notwithstanding, that was a fantastic effort today.
Huge kudos to the team for bouncing back and playing so well in such a critical road game.

IF (big if) we see that kind of focus and intensity next week, there is no reason we can't head into the Dook rematch on a 3 game win streak.

Thoughts about the last part of the second half
For one, it is hard to evaluate a group of backups when they are all in together as each of their weaknesses get magnified without help from better players.

Bede - the offense dies with him to a degree. He over-dribbles, takes forever at the top to get anything started. Buzz had them start weaving to get the ball moving but Bede needs to start learning to run an offense. It does not have to be a break-neck offense but get the ball moving.

Jackson - He had a good first half. But it really felt like the game was too much about the Jackson family. We didn't need their family on the split-screen so much. But he started forcing things late in the second half. I bet Buzz told him to not make it about that when he came in during the first half for the first time. He showed nice hops to dunk twice.

Clarke/Hill - they should have been the leaders when they were on the court with Horne, Bede and Jackson and they were not. This should have been Hill's time to shine. Part of that was Bede holding on to the ball. A couple of Hill's shots were too far back from the 3-pt line and again bad form. Clarke should have been someone to rely on.

We went through a stretch with several turnovers, blocked shots, just not good offense.

Horne - Horned struggled for a stretch with the travels, playing too close to Jackson on one inbounds play in which he tried to drop a bounce pass to Jackson who was essentially 2 feet from Horne. Horne showed really good mobility which I think bodes well for his future. He can be out on the perimeter, help move the ball and show his athleticism. It will be good to see him take some mid-range jump shots like Leday would.

Overall - it was nice to see Wilson look to shoot and be assertive. The passing was nice and that is the type of passing all college teams should strive for, the passes to cutters on the baseline for example. College basketball has moved toward being a 1-on-1 game which gets away from really good team basketball. It was nice to see that when VT ballooned its lead.

I was surprised that GT didn't use their big guys much at all. That was partly a product of Jacckson and Akogi looking to shoot alot early in the game. So the scoring became about them early on. But to totally dominate GT in the second half for the most part, to threaten to go up by 40 points, that is impressive.

Probably so
The wins against UNC and UVA loom very large. Also, in recent years, how a team does in conference tourney(outside of winning it) appears to have no influence on NCAA selection or seeding-it all appears to be set beforehand.

It was a token extension... it was just two years
That's not indicative of GT thinking he's going to be there for the long term. The extension would have been four or more years if they thought for sure he would be around for a while.

He may well be
A lot of folks here wrote him off back when he was trying to qualify for admission and he got that done. He’s a guy who knows what he wants and gets it so wherever he gets drafted I have no doubt he’ll give whoever drafts him first round quality.

If Tim and Tremaine both go first two rounds, could be big for recruiting..
Lots of teams use VT players lack of success in the pros in the front 7 (and rightfully so) with defensive tackle and linebacker. Now if we place two early entrants in the first two rounds, Foster and Wiles can tell the future Clelin Ferrell's, De'Shawn Hand's, Josh Sweat's, etc. that not only can you play in a family friendly atmosphere instead of a football farm, but you can get a great education and we'll prepare you to be a high draft pick too.

Vs. Pletcher, Micah Jordan, Martin, and McKenna? No gimmes there.
Not sure where catova was going with the "how good the ACC really is" comment, but the top of the B1G is obviously something else. It obviously doesn't help when the elite teams start with a team filled with top-5 guys and then fill whatever holes they have left with transfers like McKenna and Campbell.

And you need good RBs to have a good running game.
