Spring look ahead: Virginia Cavaliers

2012 record: 4-8 overall, 2-6 ACC Spring practice opens: March 18 Spring game date: April 6 2012 in review: A 2-0 start and win over Penn State had Hoo-ville fired up, but then a 56-20 loss to Georgia Tech triggered a six-game losing skid. Virginia dropped eight of its last 10 games, and half the losses were blowouts. Coach Mike London never settled on a quarterback, rotating the...

UVa/Tech Preview: Q&A with 'The Key Play'

  Not really doing a preview per say this week, but here is a Q&A I did with Hokie blog 'The Key Play'. I think the points about the game are pretty clear (and known throughout Charlottesville). So enjoy your Thanksgiving and stay safe! TKP: Okay, before we get into game related stuff I want to talk about Mike London. What is the general Wahoo consensus on...

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...

ACC Honor Roll -- Week 2

The ACC wasn't on college football's center stage this past weekend, but it had five important nonconference games to gauge its overall strength. The result was underwhelming, as two teams escaped against so-so opponents, two were blown out, and another surprisingly picked up a solid win. The top performers who helped the league won't include Virginia QB Michael Rocco...

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: 1st Year Impact

As we start closing up the final week of Fall Camp, Mike London addressed the media today. And while he didn’t clear up the starting quarterback situation, he did let on to two pieces of information. First, that Monday, he would release the depth chart, and second, that ‘several’ 1st years would fill out the two deep roster. And while we will have to wait another 5 days for...

Questions at Virginia camp for the defense

Continuing the series from yesterday with the camp issues for the Virginia defense. 1. Can Eli Harold be a terror on the edge? The least proven ability on the entire defense is pass-rushing.  Your starting defensive ends are Billy Schautz and Jake Snyder.  Schautz has an outstanding head for football, but isn't athletic enough to speed-rush the quarterback, or powerful enough...
