The Guy In The Glass: A Lambeth Field Goodbye

Well, how else would you go out?!? At least I’m doing it before the season is over. Yes folks, you are reading correctly, this is it for us. A late night conversation that happened nearly 5 years ago and turned into a blog has reached it’s logical conclusion. And while this marks the end of this site, it does not mark the end of Lambeth Field. Before we get to the sappy stuff...

UVa Football: The Short, Short Version

Welcome back Wahoos to another exciting season of UVa Football. In case you haven’t noticed, and judging by the ticket sales you haven’t, the Cavaliers begin their season next Saturday at home against a perfect season ease-in opponent: the UCLA Bruins. I’m sure by now you have read countless stories about the coaches say they are embracing the playbook, how everyone is coming...

…And the Dutch

So the summer months are upon us and I just wanted to put down a few thoughts about the 13-14 Virginia Sports Campaign. I was trying to put together a comparison for this year’s effort and while watching the World Cup, it was right in front of me. Holland. Yep, the Dutch. The Netherlands effort in their World Cup history sums up this year to a T. They came so close, but never won...

Baseball: Choose Your Own Adventure

You’ve read them before. Mostly as a kid, but you’ve cleaned out your attic, found one or two, and read them. No? Maybe just me. If you never read them or had an outdoor childhood, the basic principle is you read a bunch of pages and then it directs you to choose how the story progresses. You read those pages, rinse, repeat, until something happens. And no matter what, something...

Baseball: One-Eyed King

It’s a really bad movie, and I love bad movies. I was an original Mystery Science Theater 3000 watcher, coming home late on Saturday night and turning on WGNT (now the CW or whatever) and watching Mike and the gang make fun of hilariously bad flix. Well, this one is worse than that. I speak of course of Minority Report, a movie that was so overhyped with Tom Cruise right before...

Whatever the Shot Clock, Bennett Ball Will Survive

I’m a huge dork, if you haven’t figured that out by now. Something else you probably know about me is that I’m not actually an English major, I’m a Civil Engineer by degree. As I was harassed mercifully for the number of concrete and metal design classes I had to take, some of the information actually stuck, contrary to my University transcript. One important Day 1 lesson...

UVa Football: Pulling Out All The Stops

At least you can’t say he won’t go down without a fight. Virginia, in a very pivotal season for both Mike London and Jon Oliver, posted the Post-Spring Depth Chart for the 2014 season. And while we are still a long way from the opener against UCLA in late August, the philosophy of the team this year is very evident, especially on offense. Here are a few notes to take away from...

M LAX: Strength of Schedule Rewarded with National Seed

Virginia only won 2 games in the ACC this year, but the last one turned out to be the most important. The NCAA committee looked at Virginia’s overall strength of schedule and 10-5 record and awarded them the 8th-national seed in the upcoming NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Tournament. The Hoos will face Johns Hopkins next Sunday at 1pm in Charlottesville, a team they beat 11-10 in overtime...

Mission Mostly Accomplished

UVa Baseball had one thing they had to do this weekend: go down to #5 FSU and take a series win. With a gutsy last couple of innings today, The Hoos held off the Noles 4-3 to scratch out a 2-1 record. This gives Virginia a one game lead on Florida State in the ACC and it captures the tiebreaker between the 2 schools, something that more likely than not will come into play in a few...

Start the Unbalanced Schedule Talk

Cause UVa fans didn’t hear enough of it all season on their way to both the ACC Regular Season and Tournament Championship, today Hoos’ fans are all over the place as the ACC schedule for the next 2 years was released. As we predicted, Louisville replaced Maryland as Virginia’s Rival with Virginia Tech. But for the 14-15 and 15-16 season, Virginia will only play UNC, Duke,...

Virginia Spring Sports: Masters Addition

This weekend begins ‘a tradition unlike any other.’ But when the Masters in the rearview mirror on Sunday, UVa gets rolling with the post-season for spring sports. And while some will/should/might go smoother than others, all have positioned themselves for the final push. So we got to thinking, if the different UVa sports were players at the Masters on Sunday, how would they...

UVa Baseball: Reversal of Fortune

This is usually the time of year we have been knee deep in the Spring Sports, mainly, of recent, baseball. With the Cavs playing lights out for the good part of the last decade, it usually is front and back page news right now. But a very impressed and unprecedented basketball season has mostly turned our attention to John Paul Jones Arena. But now with the Winter Sports in the rear...

Once In A Lifetime

“You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?” It’s not that we didn’t have chances. We haven’t been completely devoid of great teams or talent. We’ve had moments and games which will live with us, ones that we talk about around a water cooler or draft beer. But while we have been in a enveloped in a season where every conversation about Virginia Cavalier basketball...

A Wahoo’s Guide to the NCAA Regionals

In my younger, more academic years, I found that a long trip up Route 29 to the Sheetz in Madison County in the middle of the night was a great way to clear your head and relax for a while. Sunday’s midnight drive from Raleigh to Richmond to Hampton Roads was the complete opposite. While I was hoping to reflect on the weekends accomplishments and adventures, it was more a time...

UVA Football Preview: UNC

Those looking for Part III of our preseason basketball coverage, hold tight. That will be out tomorrow. I decided to get this week’s football preview out as we normally do on Wednesday so that we can close up the week on a more positive note. As for this weekend’s football matchup, while neither team has anything really to play for at this point in time, it is a big tradition...

UVa Basketball Preview Part III: The Prediction

So we looked at the team and the schedule. Now it is time to figure out how it will go down. Last season, I pegged the Hoos for a 17-to-19 win regular season, with 8-10 coming out of conference, and a square NIT bid. We finished 21-10, with 10 OOC, and nibbled on a NCAA bid, before grabbing a #1 seed in the NIT tournament. In looking through a basketball season, you have to look...

UVa Football Preview: Miami

You don’t realize how stress free bye weeks are until you have one. Last Saturday was very, very relaxing, outside of watching the Hoos basketball team in Charlotte slowly pull away from Davidson. But now there is no stopping til the end, which is thankfully only a week and a half away. This week is the calm before the cold front with Miami. And while Miami hasn’t been the same...

Men Hoops Head to….Texas?

Hope everyone is ready for Thanksgiving. As most of you are fighting your way through Hokies talking smack to a 2-9 team because they don’t have any more cows to milk, I thought we would skip the VPISUx preview and talk about basketball and where we are at. Not surprisingly, Virginia has started 5-1 with the lone loss to then #10 ranked VCU on a last second 3-pointer shot from...

Where Do We Go Now?

It was our worst season since 1981. After that season, UVa Athletic Director Jim Copeland decided to go in another direction and fire then coach Dick Bestwick and hire a little known coach called George Welsh. The rest was history. Fast forward to yesterday, and in the wake of a 16-6 loss to Virginia Tech, the Hoos 11th loss in a row to our second cousins, there is not even a rumbling...

Scrooged

Tough thing about exam/winter breaks is you have too much time to think.  With the 14 days between the Green Bay and Northern Iowa games, too many people have too much time to sit around and think about the basketball season to date. And while it hasn’t been the best start ever, the Hoos have not played themselves of anything yet. So in the ‘sprit’ of Christmas, let’s take...

Path to the Tourney

Hello. It’s been a long time. I know I haven’t been living up to my end of the bargain. So much stuff going on in Wahooland and I’ve been gallivanting around The Commonwealth. Well, all that is coming to an end. While we, and by we, I mean Bloguin, is revamping our site, I decided to use this snow day to catch up on where the Men’s Basketball Team stands in relation to going...

Signing Day ’14: Class Redux

For the past few years, UVa fans official cast off the doom and gloom of the previous season when the National Signing Day comes around. It is the first preview of the new student-athletes who we will entrust the future of our football program to. And while this season will be the make-or-break season for Mike London, we like to look back at the last few classes and see how our classes...

UVa Football Signing Day ‘14

It came and went in a flash this morning, if you call 3 ½ hours a flash. While the four-letter networks will be sitting around with 13+ hours of coverage, for the second year in a row, Virginia wrapped up its National Signing Day with zero surprises either way. When the dust settled, the Hoos signed 15 players today to go along with the 2 early enrollees for a total of 17 in a very...

From Rodney to Aretha and Back Again

While most people were prepping for St. Patrick’s Day parties across the nation, this morning started like every other morning these past 2 months for UVa fans. Wake up, grab a cup of coffee (or Monster), check email and Twitter, and look at each other and just shrug.  The standard non-verbal conversation Wahoo fans have adopted is the mixture of disbelief, amazement, and rationalization...
