No. 58 Virginia Cavaliers season preview

It has been a rough couple years for coach Mike London and the Virginia Cavaliers.

ACC Countdown: No. 14 Virginia

Does Virginia have the worst talent level in the ACC? Not at all. But the reason the Cavaliers are here is because they've had talent above their on-field results before under head coach Mike London, who came in with a bang in 2011 with a stellar recruiting class.
