Hope you have your ‘three goggles’ read.

NCAA Basketball: Syracuse at Virginia Scott Taetsch-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team (9-4, 3-3) has scored some notable upsets over the Virginia Cavaliers (10-2, 6-0) since joining the ACC. Granted, the Hoos have also stomped us to hell at other times. But hey, that’s not what we’re focusing on here.

On Monday night at 7 p.m. ET, these two teams face off once again — on ESPN — to see if there’s enough upset magic on the Orange sideline to score another unexpected victory and vault the team back into the NCAA Tournament picture. For UVA, a win continues to solidify them as a title contender and a potential one-seed come March Madness. We obviously don’t want that now, do we?

Before things get rolling, here are some articles to read up on. While we’ll have this thread open, we’ll also be on the TNIAAM Discord server, for those interested.
