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...

Cavs' kicker plays after father's heart attack

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Virginia placekicker Ian Frye was feeling pretty good as he headed for the locker room in Saturday's road game at BYU. His 22-yard field goal on the final play of the first half was his third in as many tries and had given the Cavaliers a 16-13 lead against the No. 20 Cougars. Then as he was leaving the field, Frye saw his mother moving down the stands...

Virginia vs. BYU: Game Preview

Last year's win set a great tone for the season: very solid defense and enough capitalizing on opponent mistakes to come away with a win.  Afterwards, of course: thbpt.  Winning that game led our thoughts completely astray, and it was two more months before the ugly truth truly sank in.  This year, the positive feelings from a win are a lot less likely to be phony; it...

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...

Louisville, Virginia Get Into Mini-Brawl At End Of First Half (Video)

ESPN Puts Louisville On Upset Watch This Weekend

Photo: Pete Cautilli Considering the Virginia Cavaliers won just two games last season and were winless in league play, Saturday’s game has been assumed to be a gimme since the 2014 schedule was released. UVA has never really known as a perennial football power, but with Mike London now running the program, the fan base has good reason to be exciting. They’ve not been able to...

Bobby Petrino Says His Team Will Be Challenged At Virginia On Saturday

Photo: Pete Cautilli Heading into the 2014 season, Virginia was thought to be the one of the weaker conference opponents on Louisville’s schedule. That still may be the case, but teams in the ACC shouldn’t be taking the Cavaliers as lightly as they were two weeks ago. Virginia is just 1-1 on the season, but their one loss came against UCLA, who was ranked in the top ten at that...

Vine: UVA’s Andre Levrone Hauls In A Ridiculous Touchdown Catch Against UCLA

If not for a few disastrous turnovers, the team many expect to finish at the bottom of the ACC, Virginia, could be putting a real scare into playoff hopeful UCLA.
