Cavaliers looking to keep a good thing going

Tony Bennett and Virginia are hoping to build off last season's success. The Cavaliers also are coming off their best season in decades, and despite two huge losses in Joe Harris and Akil Mitchell, there's still the chance for Virginia to be even better than last year. Harris (12 ppg) was the scoring threat that made the offense work, and Mitchell (6.8 ppg, 7 rpg) was the...

Virginia set to host North Carolina in ACC matchup

The numbers suggest Virginia could find a cure for its offensive inconsistency on Saturday. That's when the Cavaliers (4-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) hosts North Carolina, which according to statistics has one of the porous defenses in the country. Virginia struggled last week in a 20-13 loss at Duke, but it's best to look beyond the numbers before expecting a cure-all...

Duke, Virginia square off in key ACC matchup

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) It's a sign of how far Duke's program has come that reaching bowl eligibility has become almost an afterthought. Beating Virginia again would mean so much more to the Blue Devils than just a sixth victory. The early inside track to the Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division title is at stake Saturday when the Blue Devils and Cavaliers renew a rivalry...

Virginia linebacker Max Valles and his teammates don't have fond memories of last season's game against Duke.

Virginia Football rolls through a Pitt stop

When you have a crappy football team (or any kind of crappy team, I guess) the smallest things turn into "not since" stats.  This past basketball season was crammed to the gills with not-since stats, and most of them ended up being Ralph Sampson-related.  Now it's football's turn.  Baby steps first - did you know, the last time UVA was 2-0 in the ACC was 2009...

Virginia has come a long way, but has a way to go

I think we learned two simple things this Saturday: How far we've come, and how far we have to go.  Dare we say, the Hoos looked better losing this weekend than they did beating BYU last year.  That's a very offense-centric point of view (the defense was a little less than completely suffocating), but then, we've long known what has to get better before anything good...

Petrino Not Panicking After Disappointing Loss To Virginia

Photo: Pete Cautilli The Louisville football program suffered a humbling 23-21 loss on Saturday to the Virginia Cavaliers. This loss doesn’t ruin the season by any means, but it’s certainly a wake-up call. Most Louisville fans predicted that the Cardinals would win eight, nine or possibly even ten games in 2014. I can only speak for myself, but I doubt Virginia was one of the...
