All the post WWII presidents, including Reagan, had a piece in the break-up of the USSR.

I was a one year, volunteer OC for a 6-8 year old Peewee football team.
We had average talent, but I have a brilliant offensive mind that kept us competitive with the upper-echelon teams in our league.
So to answer your question, no, I haven't really coached football....

I mean, the white thing is pretty important here unfortunately. He's only hyped as much as he is because he's a white guy that scores a lot of points for a mid-major (just like Szerbiak, Fredette and Morrison). That hype belies the talent in all three players, which is not sufficient for the NBA....

If UVA can get by Memphis/GW in the second round, they will make the final four. They also will play Harvard in the Sweet 16.
For some reason, the second round matchup for UVA scares me more than MSU. MSU may beat us if we matchup, but it will be the Memphis/GW game that proves whether UVA has ...

I suppose the first question was obvious. If Duke wins, does UVA fall to a 3 or is a 2 seed locked up at this point? I realize the ACC is down this year, but a 3 seed seems harsh given their resume in a traditionally top notch league....

So can Duke, the only team in the ACC to beat UVA when the conference was yet to be clinched, beat the Hoos for the ACC tournament title?
Will the refs have a tangible impact on the game in Duke's favor?
If UVA can win, are they deserving of a #1 seed in the tournament?
Is UVA the best team...

UVA hasn't lost since January 13. I'd say they've been pretty consistent.
Final Four will be tough obviously as UVA simply can't match the talent of some other top teams. But given the mid majors that have made the final 4 recently, I'd say pure talent isn't a great indicator of Final 4 ability...
