The big thing that came out of this win was the last cal/playl itself. Just as Mack did in the Arizona game when he called O'Mara's number instead of Tre's, he called Goodin's. The announcers were all talking about how to get it to Tre or JP. Mack does not always go with the obvious.
As CM said after the game, he has confidence in all his players, and that situation was best for Q because of his speed and skill. The guy covering Tre actually helped in the screen to free Q because he was not about to leave Tre unguarded. That's why players really like playing for CM.
Mark Twain was wrong. Golf is NOT a good walk spoiled. It is a shared personal experience in a majestic wonderland guided by God, whose name is called frequently during the round.

Lot of guts to make the last call. To me it looked like the first guy actually made the foul. He was moving in. Most refs swallow the whistle and walk away. Making that call in front of 18000 took a lot of nerve. Gives me a bit more faith. (I think it was a make-up for the traveling called on O'Mara two possessions before. The replay in slow motion showed his left foot did not move.)

Thought the travel call on SOM was questionable but the foul on Tre on the 3 point shot was a flop - a very good flop but still a flop.

Despite having never met you, I'm wholly confident I can fit my whole body in one of your pant legs. You're the only guy I know that has to go thru the turnstiles twice at Cintas for your whole body to clear thru.

Also speaks volumes for Tre. He doesn't pout that he is not getting the last shot
Coach Mack has made that comment several times this year about how unselfish Tre is.

HAHA touched a nerve. So you never met me but talk like you have, interesting.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Same could be said for Macura, SOM, & Gates. There are no Mark Lyons on this team.

I'm looking forward to it at your garage sale tomorrow. Just promise me you'll save one of your raincoats so I'll have an extra pool cover for the future.

VA down 4 with 1 minute to go. X could climb as high as two, which they should if VA loses. VA Tech is good, but VA is at home.

tied with 4.2 seconds and VA tries a long three instead of giving it to Q for the win
