Lol yeah @jazznutUVA will move everything eventually.
If we are to believe Kon’s mom, they aren’t going to sit together and discuss until Wednesday at the earliest. Also Tony I imagine will make his way out there before a decision is made if we are to believe 2025 Will Garlock saying UVA would be in Wisconsin to check in on him as well.
Anderson or Henderson or something like that, the great point guard that went to GT with Dalyrmple. I think it was Anderson. We did get Polynice on that trip too.
Sheehy was another one of my must haves and he didn’t seem to evolve quite as I was thinking he would. I believe Terry’s system had some to do with that.
No question. Also, when do we list our worst 10 nut punch losses of all-time? I will ante up the Clem football loss at home - on my wedding day - when we were up 28-0.
Sheehey, Polynice, Smith, and Dalrymple were all my class (high school class of 1983). Kenny Anderson was several years after that. He was on Cremins’s 1990 national runner-up team (Lethal Weapon 3 with Dennis Scott and Brian Oliver, who now does color commentary on some ACC regional broadcasts). I don’t think Anderson and Dalrymple overlapped at GT. Dalrymple was on those great GT teams with Mark Price, John Salley, Tom Hammonds, and Craig “Noodles” Neal.
That’s totally on me. I won free use of the U.S. Celluar (I think) cell phone near the end of the first half. It looked like I was calling in a bombing run on the VC. I did the unthinkable and called my brother (an '83 Clemson grad) and talked shite at halftime. Sorry. My wife and I passed it around so I think like 20 people in our section made long distance calls on that phone.
GA tech loss in 1990 takes the cake. That scar will never heal….
I lost part of my soul in that one.
Dude, WTF. I knew something cosmic was at work.
My parents had tickets right in front of the coaches box at Scott, went to that game , they scored on a long run down the sidelines right before halftime, Kirby got hurt and the rest was history. Any way after we went 27-0 I turned to the coaches and yelled hang 50 on those mfers!! As I had seen them hang 55 on us at field level.
I don’t think many people realized at the time what a once in a lifetime opportunity it was to watch UVA vs UNC with Sampson Worthy Perkins and Jordan all on the same floor. Name another ACC game(s) with that level of talent playing.
I was there.
At the game, not your wedding. I think.
1974 — NC State vs. Maryland? Thompson, Burleson, Towe, Lucas, McMillen, Elmore….
100% with you on that one. At Bobby Dodd in '98 when we coughed up a 17-point fourth quarter lead sucked majorly as well. That '98 team was two blown leads in Atlanta (we coughed up a 21-point lead to Quincy Carter and them Dawgs in the Peach Bowl) away from a Top 10 finish that year.
You’re right, it was Smith. We could have had all 4.
You know what else is crazy, we thought we had a good shot at Chris Mullin to come in and replace Jeff Lamp. He ended up at St. Johns and we got Tim Mullen. Back then when all we had were a few rags on recruiting, I used to mix the two up. I was thinking we had landed Chris.
Someone will log on after work, see something like 100+ posts since this morning, have their heart skip a beat, then scroll through recruiting memory lane looking for the Kon post….
They should’ve been checking every 5 minutes at work like a normal degenerate
I’d heard Sheehy wanted to see one more visit and in between that visit and his verbal, Dalrymple and Smith went GT and UNC.
I remember Holland having some pretty set in stone substitution patterns at the different timeouts. I remember Holland sitting frosh Sheehy at his “scheduled” break against a Terp team that couldn’t stop him and screaming my ass off about it.
“Hey, remember that miserable thing we all hated but remember well? Let’s spend the day reliving it.”
“Sounds good, I’ll be there with beer.”
