Is what though?


Do teams care if they lose a regular season game to UVA? It would seem they do.

There is extremely scant evidence that teams play "harder and smarter" in the Tournament than they do against UVA in the regular season. Could be true. But you could also argue teams play smarter when they have more time to prepare for an opponent as they usually have in a regular season schedule. Could also argue that in a league schedule where teams see the same opponents at least one a year, preparation is smarter as coaching schemes and player tendencies are better understood. UVA is usually ranked in the regular season...are there a lot of teams out there that don't play their hardest against a ranked team during the regular season? Especially at home? Show me the evidence.

I'm not going to get in the way of your deductions, you can believe whatever you want. But you don't have license to say CTB says something he didn't say because you want to believe it.
