I remember one year the Hawks surprisingly started the season 13-0 (or was it 12-0?) and went into the all star break leading the division. They ended up making the playoffs.... and then getting bounced out in the first round. I'm just saying is all.
Then again, THIS Eastern conference isn't exactly the Eastern conference of the mid- to late-90s.
Oh Victoria... (schneier.com) Pranks like this, and the VA Tech student that broke into Virginia's Scott Stadium to spray paint a huge "T" next to the "V" at midfield last year are why I absolutely love college sports.
