Dick Vitale of ESPN was on Mike and Mike this morning and was very confused about how Virginia Tech did not get in. He specifically compared VT to wake. He pointed out that the Hokies finished ahead of wake in the ACC standings and beat them. That should have gotten the Hokies in, regardless of what happened earlier in the season. Dick also mentioned wake lost five of six to close the season. Mike Golic (a former football player) didn’t agree and pointed out VT lost four of six to close the season. Vitale didn’t think the fact wake’s AD was on the committee was a factor. He also, like Coach Greenberg, spoke about needing a more defined criteria for the at-large teams. Thank you, Mr. Vitale. I’ll go to Golic if I need advice on Nutrisystem, but not basketball.
What an empty feeling we all have today. Just seems crazy to think we won’t be playing in the madness this week. No, we weren’t going to win it all, but we could have pulled some upsets off and really had some great moments. Plus, all you ever want in life is a shot.
