Whoa, slow down there - lost to a 13 seed in 2021 and missed the tournament entirely last year.

I wonder how many other schools put their fans through this sort of pain.

I wish that announcers would stop talking about Dick Bennett and his son Tony's pedigree during Virginia games. It's almost like a curse.

Virginia followers living in New England now have Kihei Clark's game losing heave to pair with the Patriots' Jakobi Meyers lateral to the Raiders as they trudge off to a windowless tavern to try to forget what happened.

Thank you, Purdue for joining the top seed first round downfall club. It's good to have company.

And thanks for also flaming out early and often in prior years. Boilermakers fans, I know how it hurts.
