The only way Erick Green will be ACC POY is if ___________________________________.
the Hokies relocate to tobacco road.
He played for duke
we are not in the ACC...oh wait...
Voters realize that ACC POY should go to the player who does the most for their team.
He leads the nation in scoring at voting time.
If he can avoid the injury bug, I think he will be leading the nation in scoring at the end of the year. ACC teams are throwing everything at him and he's still droping 25-30 a game. And against some pretty good defensive teams. I just figure those Carolina (the state) voters will be voting their normal party ticket.
I can't help but think back to his Freshman year when he couldn't shoot it in a bathtub. It's pretty amazing how he's grown his game since that time.
Won't even matter. The "Oscar Robertson Trophy" is given to the nation's best player, and the final 12 watch list was released today. Unbelievably, Erick's name was not on that list. Even if you don't believe he should win it, the notion that there are 11 other players in the country right now that are MORE deserving is absurd.
Damn! I got nothing
Hell freezes over...the ACC front office and the Tobacco Row group HATE VT and in particular VT basketball. There is a serious effort going on to keep VT BB down. Erick Green will never be given the award...that is against ACC policy. VT basketball is never to rise and VT football is also targeted...ACC and Tobacco Row do not want VT football to win another ACC Championship...Clemson and FSU being targeted to reign in football.
At least he'll probably get drafted.

donkeys fly.......(remember this is the NCACC....tobacco road style)
I'd love to see it happen but it doesn't matter to me.
As frustrating as it has been to watch this team over the last 13 games it has been even more enjoyable to see what this young man is accomplishing on the court.
It could be a very long time that we will see a player have a season like he is having in the Orange and Maroon colors. While it is a shame that the team’s poor performance is going to over shadow what he is accomplishing this season, it is still unbelievable what he has been able to do night in and night out.
And that is good enough for me
I agree it seems we aren't given the same benefits other schools are from time to time, but I didn't think it was that bad. Do you have anything in particular that makes you think that? Not calling you out, just curious as to what may be going on that I am not aware of.
Plumlee will have to break his leg and not play the rest of the season.
We pay Swofford a ton of money and promise the rest of our football games to Raycom until 2050.
That might be the only way.
green is having a great year, but alot of his success is because there are no other options on offense for VT. Player of the year/MVP in all sports has become a joke. You have to be on a winning team, you have to be in a playoff race...... how about just vote for the best player.
.....North Carolina annex's Virginia and we all become tarheels.
You could also argue that he is having this success despite the lack of other options. Defenses are entirely focused on stopping him since we have no other threats, and dude is still making it rain out there.
this ^^^^^^^^^^^is true. Also remember that Uncle Fester is now an analyst for the mother-ship! We all have known for some time now, that espn has a bone against VT, probably since our HC doesn't feel the need to let the media run loose in the locker room after football games. But for the life of me, I can't understand why this rolls over to the BB program.
...if VT signs over 3rd party media rights to Swofford's son @ Raycom.
I think he goes for a lot less, maybe 1/2 ton.
