Let me go ahead and say what's on all of your minds:

Oh god oh god oh god oh god oh god oh god.

Vegas likes Michigan State, but advanced stats guru Ken Pomeroy likes UVA. They can't both be right (#analysis).

No, if you want real analysis, check out Caroline's piece from earlier this week, or Wiley's Q&A from this morning. Both are great reads. According to Pomeroy's statistics, Michigan State has the 8th most efficient offense in the country, but Virginia brings the 5th most efficient defense. In a recurring theme for this team, he who controls the tempo will control the game.

Leave your pre-, in-, and post-game thoughts here and as always, Go HOOS!
