    Thanks Hokie. Your team played with a lot of heart and gave us all we could handle. I like what I saw of your new coach too. Maybe he can get things turned around in Blacksburg soon. I agree with Senor Wuf that I would not want to play you guys in the ACC tourney. Heck, the way State has played everyone close this year, I don't think I want to play anyone in the ACC tourney. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    I appreciate your sincere approach to this one senor wuf. I know that you're right about State taking it to the hoop inside. But, we did take it inside a bunch of times too, but not quite as often. Still. This is a huge variance. I'm a numbers person. I don't know how it went into OT. State learned something from this one. My Hokies did too. I wish State the very best on down the stretch. The Hokies will not go forward after the ACC Tourney. State will.

    That was my only theory as well, but 43 to 7 is unreal! Keep in mind that 2 of them were on a technical foul, so they only really shot 5. Does anyone know what the breakdown was for each half? I thought there were a lot of calls that did not get made in the first half, on both teams. The 2nd half seemed better, but I did not realize that State shot that many more free-throws. Another interesting stat is that Va. Tech made 80 field goal attempts with 23 - 3 point attempts while State only attempted 55 field goals with 18 - 3 point attemps. I do not remember Va. Tech shooting that many more times either. Va. Tech only had 7 more offensive rebounds than State. Quite a few odd stats about this one as far as I can tell.

    I really thought it was just the different emphasis of play by each team. Wolfpack drove and stuck to their post play while VT was all about shooting jumpers. Inside play generally leads to a lot of fouls due to the natural physicality of the down-low game. It does look extremely lopsided on the scoresheet though while watching the game I didn't think the refs were partial to either team (I had no idea the pack shot this many FT's). Anyways, good game by your Hokies. I'm afraid to play them in the ACC tourney.

    Thanks for your honesty. State is an above-average team this year. If you consider what we have been like the last 20+ years average. If, like most, you consider us sucking the last 20+ years, then I guess we are just average this year too.

    I am assuming you would say the Heels are an average team this year too. After all, they went into OT before winning against Va. Tech also. Just saying.

    In all honesty, that free-throw descrepancy seems way off, but it is accurate and right from the box-score. I agree that there were several no-calls as well, on both sides of the ball. All I can think of is that State made more driving plays and inside plays versus Va. Tech taking a lot of outside shots. But 43-7 seems impossible.

    Back in the day, a player mouths off to the ref and gets T would have been sent to the pine to think about it for a while too. The player is usually very agitated, whether he's right or wrong and will often make poor plays following something like this.

  • tayled Feb 16, 4:44 p.m.

    The FT planned miss works about as welland as often as an onside kick in football. We were totally uprepared to box out on the play. Even though even the TV guys said it was a lane violation on Tech, State was still caught off guard on a play where they should have suspected something like that.

    — Posted by PackFan1983

    I agree. I would have had a box and one on Green, with players shifting off and on of him most of the second half. I did like our ability to put on a 2-2-1 press and thought we should have stuck with it rather than the man to man press. The press was working, if to do nothing else than make them use most of the 10 seconds to get it over half court, 10 seconds off the shot clock too.

    I was glad to see that his foot looked 100% today. I did not see him favor it at all. I guess that 6 day break was good for it. And yes, Tyler has made a believer out of me since Brown got hurt. I would rather have had Brown available the entire season, but it may have ended up being a good thing for the team in the end. Either way, I am happy to have him back.

  • tayled Feb 16, 4:36 p.m.

    Should have won in regulation, but we will take it any way we can get it. Wood was much better today than usual. The ACC needs to look at their officials. Obvious calls were missed today on both sides of the ball. Very poor officiating.

If you have the wide open LAY-UP, you take it. He would only have killed a couple more seconds anyway. I might agree if they were already up by 2 scores that you hold the ball, but we were only up by 1 basket at the time.
