    If we ever beat Montreal in the playoffs again we should get a really good 'Ole' chant going.

    If we start competing annually like the Dookies do than it will probably happen organically. Cringey, made up chants without history like a lot of MLS teams do suck anyway.

    Cheaters never win is super cringey, especially considering the frequency with which the visiting team proves it false

    I don't think it's all that bad. It's one of the few Jumbotron things that actually engages the fans (*random movie clips* SCREAM doesn't quite get it done) and at least it's something the fans came up with themselves.

    Hahahahaha... I was on a call until about 1:55, thinking awesome, I can catch the game... And completely forgot until just now that we played. Wow. That does not help our bubble situation.

    I don’t know, I heard we were comfortably in as a 9 seed (ejection seat) before the loss, so we might be better off if we skip to an 11 or 12 seed anyway.

    Yeah, they should just focus on the cheaters part more often since that's more accurate.

    It was very weird that ESPN BPI had State as a 4% chance of being in after that BC loss.....but any human being on ESPN said absolutely they are in.

    I thought if they went loss-loss to end their regular season/ACC tournament they’d be out. With that win I assume they will be in.

    State has more than enough quality wins. Duke, UNC, Arizona, Clemson, FSU was ranked last week.

    The NCAA however every year always leaves out that one team that everyone says should be in but doesn't get in.

    And NC State is the ideal candidate to have that honor bestowed upon them this year.

    I can't wait for the 5th place ACC team to get snubbed while the 6th place ACC team is a 2 seed or whatever.

    Try being a 23 win 4th place finishing ACC team who was left out while teams finishing 5th and 6th were graciously invited.

    Try being an alum of one of the three (?) long-time D1 teams that have never made the tourney. Fun.

    Was that one of Greenberg’s infamous soft OOC schedules? I assume that was the reason.

    But yeah, 4th in ACC. Wow.

    It's not The Citadel is it?

    They are the only one I can think of thats never been. Northwestern made it last year and someone (Radford?) will be making their first appearance this year.

    Edit: It's gotta be U of Maine judging by your location, didn't know they were division 1.

    It was, but I think they still should have been in that year. But bad out of conference, and not many signature wins otherwise puts it in the hands of the committee. That's asking for trouble.

    Who was the VT player about 10 years ago who wore the headband and had cornrows? Kind of struck me as Allen Iverson-lite. Dude was pretty badass but I don't think he ever made it to the pros.
