Yes, there are so many ridiculous things Vitale (and other analysts)

Say in a given broadcast. The one that got me was when he said "Georgia Tech had Virginia beat twice..." Now, those were two games that GT could have won. In the second game, GT led by 3 at roughly the 10 minute mark in the 2nd half before UVa went on a run to "salt" the game. Leading by 3 at any point in the 2nd have does not translate to having at team beat.

Any perspective of CBB tells you having a 10 pt lead with 10 min in the game does not have a team beat. We made a spirited comeback and GT had a chance to win the game on a last minute 3. None of that constitutes "having a team beat."

For the record, the Jackets have played us tough 2X and I'd just as soon not face them again this year. And BTW, the term "having a team beat" really means nothing except saying that can be quite embarrassing to wit: a team being up 4 with .09 seconds left. "Game over" as Tim Brando proclaims, right?
