By now, you’ve likely seen the video of Virginia Tech head basketball coach Buzz Williams grabbing the mic last night to tell the Hokies’ student section chanting “bullshit” to “quit cussin’.”
If you’re a good student, you watched it in your 8 a.m. Accounting class as you tried to muffle your giggles in the back of the room while the professor droned on about personal finances or something else you’ll never need to worry about.
However, if you’re like me and just waking up with the shame of Martini Monday hanging over your head, then you might need to catch up on the action:
Wow. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a coach grab the mic in the middle of nail-bitter to tell unruly home students to piss off. That’s an integrity move right there…or was it?
See, the Hokies were getting pounded by No. 5 Duke most of the game. They remained close throughout, but it looked like it wasn’t going to be in the cards. ESPN’s win probability estimator didn’t flip to the Hokies’ favor until Chris Clarke’s two-point tip-in with four seconds left.
The difference? Williams’ mic drop.
You know what they call that? Strategery.
Not only did Williams and the Hokies win the game, Williams might’ve just talked himself into a new coaching job, too.
The cream always rises to the top and, in this case, Williams couldn’t be any creamier. A domination of the Twitter convo, a win over Duke and the Kentucky coaching job on a silver platter all in one night. Next up? President of the World..
