    But I was rooting for Texas. You are right though it was a great game, as championship games should be.

    OK, I give up - what the fergooglie is a Hoos?

    Sorry, if that is some sort of sports reference? Can't say I much follow any of them.

    From Wikipedia: Wahoos, often shortened to 'Hoos, is an unofficial nickname for sports teams of the University of Virginia (officially the Cavaliers), and more generally, a nickname for University students and alumni.

    I was rooting for TT not because I have any affiliation with them (although do live in Texas) but because the Baylor Lady Bears won the woman's NCAA BB Championship and it would have been entertaining to see the state go bananas with both BB champeenships.

    Yeah "Wahoo" is a nickname for UVA or even shorter "Hoos" University of Virginia Cavaliers

    I've been going to sporting events there since 1979, but i also go to events at VA. Tech. Gotta support the in state schools. People seem to know Va. Tech Hokies better than UVA because of the football program. Most don't realize that UVA has 25 national Championships(i know not a lot compared to some) in sports , i think baseball, soccer and basketball are the biggest now.

    I just thought it was a great game and a lot on the forum were supporting the Red Raiders. We'll have to see what happens next year, UVA is only losing 1 player from this team.

    Oh -- it's basketball.

    I thought it might have had something to do with Horton.

    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    And I was thinking, "Who's a hoe now?"

    Thanks? for the info. So Wahoo refers to a team named the Cavaliers from the University of Virginia? Makes perfect sense now - LOL
