Virginia football weekend review 9/25

Funny thing.  We lost on Saturday.  I know that, you know that.  The scoreboard says so, the articles say so, and the fanbase is certainly acting like it.  So why don't I feel like we lost? For one, it's not like we were supposed to win.  And it never felt like we were out of it.  At least not to me.  Mike London is right when he says there are a lot of positives...

Aaron Brooks was close and actually had a better NFL career. Matt Blundin, who also played basketball...
