The last time Virginia basketball was ranked #1 in the nation, in 1982, I was 10 years old, and being 10 years old, and only cognizant of the outside world for, what, maybe two years, I just assumed that this was how the world worked, that Virginia basketball was always going to be #1.

You’re worried that, what if Virginia Tech just put the blueprint for how to beat Virginia out there for the world to see? OK, I’ll bite. You hold Virginia to 34.4 percent shooting, entice them into shooting a mind-numbing 38 threes, shoot 43 percent yourself, make 38 percent of your threes, outrebound them, outscore them in the paint, and then somehow induce a 93.4 percent free-throw shooter into missing the back end and front end of successive 1-and-1s, all so you can win by one, yeah.
