You ain't kidding... just ask the ex-#2 Badgers and ex-#3 Bruins. And UF had to come from 20 down last night to win.

The good news is that tOSU and UNC won pretty easily -- and even though I'm not a fan of the Heels, they looked just a teensy impressive last night OMG smiley

...and in NCAAW, #4 Maryland loses to unranked GT, #7 LSU loses to #14 Georgia, and #15 Vandy escapes UK... that just makes for another screwy night in WB-ball.

BTW, #2 UNC, the #3 Lady Vols, and #6 tOSU won their respective games pretty handily.

Oh, and no one has seen UF... Big grin

Here's a stupid question. Why do you refer to Virginia as the "Hoos"? Confused smiley Glad to see anybody beat the Blow Devils no matter who they are or what they may be called! Wink smiley Thumbs up

I know of 2 versions of the origin of the nickname Hoos (short for Wahoo).

1.) it was started as a cheer at sporting events, where students would cheer WAH HOO WAH (kind of like yahoo)

2). The unofficial mascot of UVA is a wahoo. A Wahoo is a fish which can drink twice its weight. If you've ever spent time at UVA this theory makes perfect sense. Beer

GO HOOS!

I was just uniformed yankee. We always referred to UVA as the Cavs. Thanks for the enlightenment! BTW most any campus could claim the wahoo as it's unofficial mascot. Texas was just voted the nations number 1 party campus. I guess if the football team couldn't bring home another championship this year someone had to bring home a title of some sort.

One more version is back in the day when the rivalry was between William and Mary and UVa, they (W&M)used to call UVa men Yahoos, and it somehow got coverted to Wahoos, i dont recall how, I do know We have a t shirt that has a Wahoo on it

Rumor has it that they tried to put 3 seconds back on the clock at the end of the game, but forgot that they weren't playing in Cameron. Big grin
