WE'RE TALKIN' BASKETBALL: Goblox at Harvey Birdman

New, comments


IN THE YEAR NINETY-FIVE-NINETY-FIVE, BASKETBALL WAS OUTLAWED, THEN RELAWED, BUT IT WAS PLAYED BY TURKEYS. TURKEYS MADE OF ROBOT PARTS WHO WERE TERRIBLE AT BASKETBALL AND OFTEN MISSED THE RIM COMPLETELY

Yes, it's the Hawkeyes and Hokies, two team names which could sound the exact same if you wanted to get a little creative with the second.

Here's the fun part: Virginia Tech is actually not very good at basketball either. While we looked at "Iowa vs. Any ACC Opponent" and assumed a 90-12 loss, impartial observers disagree.

In fact, RealTimeRPI's score predictor calls this one 62-61 Virginia Tech. While we don't know what goes into those predictions, data-wise, we do assume it's somewhat legit--it's actually not that hard to use mathematical models these days.

Anyhoo, game is on right now, and here's the rules, courtesy of our friends at Gobbler Country:

1 drink for every turnover and missed 3. a shot for foul outs and shot clock violations without a fg attempt.

Let's add a drink for missed free throws, and we hope you survive. Let's do this.
