I am so glad I got this private forum to communicate with you.

EarIier today, I dropped my keys in a sewer grate and had to lift the incredibly dense and heavy wrought iron and climb down 20 feet below the streets of the great City of Chicago.

In the cold echo of the bustle above, and in the dimly lit catacombs, I found a small wee cheery Leprechaun in a bright green glittery suit with a tiny felt top hat with a gold band around it, holding my keys and also holding a tiny UVa Lacrosse Pennant. The pennant was worn and tattered and listed all the championship teams from 52, 70, 72, 99, 03, 06 and 11 and was replete with the outline of a really old traditional STX Sam 2 head after the words 'VIRGINIA LACROSSE'.

What the cheery wee fellow said was only two quick sentences. And as soon as I got up to my office I wanted to be sure to privately convey his words so here I am typing as fast as I can.

He said:

'Tell Vonmisian, as with all 'all-knowing' doubters, he hasn't a clue on what THE SYSTEM is or holds because alas, the system is not yet even close to being implemented. Tell him kind Sir, what we told the doubters in UVa men's basketball just a few years ago - when THE SYSTEM is properly implemented by the rightful coach's proper recruited personnel, THE DYNASTY WILL BE REBORN.'

I stared at the wee glittery green suit, the chubby red cheeks and thought to myself what does the little lucky man mean?

As I turned to climb back up the ladder back up in to the wind and light up on South Wacker Drive he called me again and said, 'Sir, also tell them all especially the one named Vonmisian, 'Hoos win big in South Bend this weekend and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!'

Vonmisian, you wise sage, have you a clue what he means?

Did you also doubt Coach Tony Bennett back in the day? Did you ever feel, personally, the pressure and momentum of that Brown team in 2016? You speak from above to us all, but do you have any clue?

Anyway, these things I wonder. I shall raise a pint on Saturday night after the ACC curse is vanquished, and perhaps you will get some Irish cheer in you yet. Or perhaps not.
