Virginia 85, Texas Tech 77 OT

I hear you. I got there the year after Boudreau left as the first undergrad ever to go pro to the Indians. And look where that got him! Looking for the proper emoji...
I know. My first few years in Charleston it became a yearly tradition that there would be a starting QB change either during or after the Illinois State game due to injury or poor play.

And the basketball program had quite a few lean years too. Got there two years after their most recent NCAA tournament appearance.
