    and in some ways, the virginia team reminds me of the spurs 2014 championship team in that both were out to exact revenge on disappointing results from the previous season. uv was very focused all year long.

    "The bettor (who didn't wish to be identified for this story) wanted more than $1,500 on Texas Tech, but SuperBook director John Murray declined. "He's a well-known player who takes a lot of futures positions with us," Murray told ESPN. "He asked for more, to which we said, 'No.' I think to win $300K is pretty good."

    The bettor settled for a $1,500 ticket on the Red Raiders at 200-1 odds, for a payout of $300,000.

    Almost four months later, that ticket was one game away from cashing. And despite an offer from Dez Bryant and another for $125,000 on PropSwap (a secondary marketplace for sports-betting futures tickets), the bettor let it ride. Texas Tech lost to Virginia 85-77 on Monday night in the championship game.

    He made other college basketball bets, including several on Virginia winning, so he still won some money. But he'll always be contemplating what could have been if Texas Tech had won.."

    1. No tears. This whole season was cake with extra frosting.

    2. Culver sucked bad last night. His draft stock won't drop but Tech needed him to step up and he Browned it.

    2a. The rest of the team balled out. Very proud of all of them except Culver.

    4. That one call in ot where the ball went off Moretti was the swing for Virginia. And then that drive and kick to the corner for the 3 was genius. Tech was completely sold he was going up for layup.

    5. Virginia was just the better team. Amazing that Tech managed to hang around and not go away there in the 2nd half.
    shit you're telling me. I remember watching them early on when they were beating up on the small Texas D-II esque schools when I was trying to get a feel for the team. I remember looking at Mooney in particular, and thinking it was going to be a long season if we we were going to have a bulky white guy from South Dakota starting at guard. Fast forward to now, and it's beyond insane to see how much he accomplished this season

    "Beard signed a six-year contract that will pay him $4.575 million annually, keeping him under contract through the 2024-25 season. His annual salary is now the fourth highest in the country, behind Kentucky's John Calipari, Duke's Mike Krzyzewski and Tennessee's Rick Barnes, according to USA Today's coaching salary database...."

    That's something I completely missed. I wondered if there would be something involving tortillas being thrown about in the student section area.
