WATCH: Virginia WR’s make a pair of sick touchdown catches

After Virginia quarterback Greyson Lambert threw for two interceptions, head coach Mike London pulled the starter for Sophomore Matt Johns. The former backup took the Cavaliers down the field for a quick 29-yard strike to Andre Levrone. The Cavaliers headed into half down 21-10. After a few stops, Matt Johns and the Cavaliers narrowed the lead with another great pass and catch to...

Virginia: Trampled underfoot

If you're the bright-side type, here's the nice thing about what happened last night: we avoided the full UVA treatment from this season.  The way things go, the only proper UVA course of events for 2012 would've been to set up the Bowl Eligibility Bowl, with the Hoos taking a three-game win streak into Blacksburg, and then lose by 10 with the Hokies returning a punt...

Cavaliers' bowl hopes end in 37-13 loss to UNC

Kevin Parks talked about not getting the yard he needed for a touchdown on fourth down. Michael Rocco pointed to an underthrown pass that was intercepted for a touchdown. And Phillip Sims mentioned a pass that he floated into the hands of Darius Jennings for a certain 81-yard touchdown until Jennings dropped it. Missed opportunities seemed on everyone's mind after Virginia lost...

Virginia's win over Miami continued a trend for the Cavaliers

ACC expansion is generally seen as a necessary evil, something we could do without and yet must have in order to prevent even worse outcomes.  And yet it's not without its perks.  We don't get to see much of Clemson or NC State any more, but 12 games a year have to be played against somebody.  The somebody that has replaced traditional yet unremarkable (in the sense that...

ACC Honor Roll - Week 5

Other than Florida State and Clemson winning, it wasn't a particularly good weekend for the ACC. Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and Virginia suffered bad losses, but at least UNC set a school record with 66 points and Miami took another step toward respectability. But those losses were damaging. Yet, there was no shortage of excellent performances in the league. With respect...

What direction should Virginia go at quarterback?

Would I be much of a writer if I thoroughly ignored the one all-consuming topic surrounding UVA football?  I would not.  I don't have to like it, though.  I seem to remember a short but blissful age when there was no quarterback controversy and we could all just argue over whether Morgan Moses should be a tackle or a guard.  Those were simpler times.  Although truthfully...

Mistakes doom Virginia in 27-7 loss at No. 17 TCU

The deep pass was thrown right to Virginia leading receiver Darius Jennings, bouncing off his facemask for an incompletion near midfield early in the game. Then after halftime, Jennings appeared to have a catch near the goal-line before a jarring hit by TCU' safety Chris Hackett knocked the ball loose for another incompletion. Add in four turnovers and the Cavaliers were left...

Virginia football weekend review 9/11

Back in 1999, Alabama had a kicker named Ryan Pflugner.  Besides the fact that my brain is calibrated to remember absurdly trivial details (and forget that I have homework due this week) there's no good reason for me to remember this, except for one: the 2000 Michigan-Alabama Orange Bowl.  I don't even remember who kicked for Michigan in that game.  But I remember Pflugner...

Virginia football weekend review

Not much of a story to tell this week.  That's what happens when you take care of business.  I think I'll just entertain you instead by talking about what I liked and didn't from Virginia's first game of the season. The good: -- Quarterbacks.  Mike Rocco was businesslike and efficient and did nothing at all to lose his job.  Phillip Sims made his eagerly-awaited...

Michael Rocco threw for 311 yards and a touchdown and Virginia beat Richmond 43-19 in the season opener for both teams Saturday. The game marked the start of Danny Rocco's career as the Spiders' coach, but his nephew and the Cavaliers had their way pretty much all afternoon. Rocco finished 25 for 37 with a touchdown on a short pass that Darius Jennings took 51 yards for...

Will's Virginia Football Preview

Raise your hand if you predicted Virginia would win eight games last year. Nobody should have their hands up on that. That was an amazing coaching job by Mike London and his staff. They brought back most of their team from 2010 that won four games. It was their most wins in a season since 2007, a season that in a lot of ways was similar to 2011.   Offense Michael Rocco was a mess...

Hoos Camping: 5 To Watch On Offense

Well the Hoos kicked off camp yesterday, and while it is WWWAAAYYY to early to come to any conclusions on position competitions, it is not a mystery who has to step up on offense to make this year a success.
