Mag-nificent!

Sorry for the bad paronomasia, but screw it, it's Friday afternoon.

I bought this sucker this week:


Not the best college hoops rag out there, but first on the newstand = the one I buy first.  And lo and behold, Lindy's wants to heap some preseason praise upon our Hoos.  Check it:

-- Joe Harris is rated the #1 shooting guard in the nation for 2013-14.  #1.

-- Akil Mitchell is Lindy's 10th-best power forward.

-- Mike Tobey is the #7 center.

-- UVA has the nation's 4th-best frontcourt (and they didn't even name Anthony Gill as part of the equation in the write-up!)

-- Virginia is ranked #14 to start the season.  "This team is deeper, bigger, and more experienced than any other team Bennett has coached.  Virginia could make a run deep into March."


This, my friends, is what expectations look like.  And now it's up to Bennett and the team to meet (exceed?) those expectations.

Sweet Sixteen or bust.
