smackdown in buffalo




The irony behind all of this is that EVERY SINGLE ONE of VCU's players was recruited by former coach Jeff Capel, III. Who is Jeff Capel, you ask? Capel was one of Duke's best basketball players. Ever. (Per Wikipedia, he finished his career among Duke's all-time Top 10 in minutes played, three-point field goal percentages, three-point field goals, and assists.) He coached at VCU for four years before leaving last April for the University of Oklahoma.

There's probably also a good chance that they wouldn't have even made the tournament this year had they not beaten George Mason in the CAA finals. I'd hope that this would shut up every single analyst and bracketologist that spends months and months fellating the ACC (and all other major conferences, for that matter)...but I know it won't.

So for now, I'm going to smile and do a happy dance for my "frienemies" at VCU.

"Frakkin'?" Jeez, should I spin up the FTLs so that we can get away from the Cylons or what?
