You expect us to play a team that had a player test positive, then their entire team have close contact with that player due to the dog pile after the buzzer beater? Why on earth would we risk an NCAAT birth by exposing our players to UVA players that have been in close contact with a positive test?While I'm happy we are in the title game, I think they should just sit the positive player and press on. Especially if he's asymptomatic.
Let's not lose sight of the fact that this is a game and ALL the rules are made-up. There's no natural law of physics that determines how a Basketball tournament is supposed to be set up. You play the game you're given and you try to win under the rules.
In the history of sports, I don't think there's ever been a champion that some butt-sore loser didn't complain wasn't legit because X player got injured, or X team wasn't in, or X player shouldn't have been eligible, or the refs made a bad call...
If Tech wins the tournament it'll be just as legit as any other. We played (and hopefully won) the games we were given.
The way the rule is currently written this basically knocks UVA out of the tournament next week. I don’t know how the hell NCAA is gonna manage this as the rules are currently written.
LOL Isn't that the very reason for the existence of a fan message board.Why are we arguing over something we have absolutely no control over whatsoever? There's nothing we can do about it and it is what it is.
Just hope we go out and win the final against either FSU or NC, if there is one.
Not sure 3 games will be a problem for uncheats since they go what 15 deep?Part of me is pumped to be in the title game. Part of me really wanted another crack at uva after we gave them two good runs.
Regardless, there will be no asterisk as long as we get to play the championship game. Not sure who I’d want. We’ve already beaten both. FSU is probably the worse team right now. But UNC would be playing their 4th game in 4 days running and up-tempo style.
