Great news: basketball starts next Friday. Bad news: we still have to play football. And while the tone of this website will change drastically next week, we still have to muddle through 4 more football games. To make it worse, this Saturday marks the start of our horrible November stretch which leads up to final game against Tech. First up is a nail biter against Clemson, and by ‘nail biter’ I mean ‘total blowout’.
Even more depressing that this football season is UVa record against the Tigers, 8-36-1. It didn’t help that we spotted them the first 29 contests from 1955-1989, which leaves the Hoos post 1990 record at a decent 8-5-1. Sadly, with the divisions set up like they are, this will be the first time playing Clemson since 2008, when the Cavs lost to the Tigers 13-3 as Verica threw 3 picks and the only TD scored was on a C. J. Spiller pass.
The Tigers are just a little better now than in 2008. In fact, a lot better. They will come in...
