Steve notes that there is hope for the Virginia football team yet.
I’m not going to be able to make it to Charlottesville this Thursday for the nationally-televised ESPN game between UVa and North Carolina. As a result, I need to see that my season tickets get in the hands of someone who will cheer for the Hoos. I have three tickets, pretty good field-level seats on [...]
I’ve never been on the bandwagon that wants to fire UVa head football coach Al Groh, but after reading this, (to quote Chris Rock)…I understand.
My son (2 years old) is in bed right now, but on the monitor, we can hear him saying “Let’s go, Hoos!” to himself. Poor kid. He’s in for a lifetime of disappointments if he’s a Hoo fan, and I can only blame myself.
Virginia men’s basketball season begins in 35 days, 21 hours, and 29 minutes. Sheesh.
…catch it! Or actually, drop it on third and long. What a disaster of a season for the Hoos.
This letter in the Cavalier Daily (one of UVa’s student papers) made me cringe: As a member of the Class of 2007, I was impressed to see that our class has already raised over one million dollars through the Class Giving Campaign. While a few of our members have already designated their gifts, I would [...]
I suppose I should mention for a moment the disaster that is University of Virginia football. Steve Minor (he was there, and has proof) has given me a hard time about it, but I must admit that I couldn’t bring myself to drive four and a half hours to Saturday’s homecoming game. I [...]
This makes me sad. I was a big fan once upon a time.
I have three tickets for sale for this Saturday’s Virginia-Wyoming in Charlottesville, UVa’s home opener. I only want face value ($30 each) for the tickets. They’re my season tickets, and I think they’re pretty good seats; Section 121 at Scott Stadium. That’s field level, if you’re unfamiliar with the Stadium. I wish I [...]
The UVa-Pittsburgh game has begun. If you’re interested in discussing the game, or anything else, here’s an open thread.
The season begins tomorrow for UVa football, with a tilt at Pittsburgh. I gotta admit: I’m a season ticket holder, but I’m not very optimistic about the Hoos this year. I love the fact that my buddy Steve Minor is having a little fun with this. Hilarious photo.
I had been planning to write something about this anyway, but seeing Steve’s post made me think about just what I wanted to say. Here’s the Roanoke Times’ story on the passing of Tom Fletcher, a friend, and one of the best people I’ve ever known: Tom Fletcher, whose recruiting prowess was invaluable to football [...]
I've spent some time discussing the troubles of Virginia Tech's Marcus Vick, so it's only fair that I point out the fact that Virginia basketball superstar Ralph Sampson is doing his level best to embarrass those of us who have been fans of his. Very disappointing.
March Madness is here again, and for the first time in half a decade, one of my schools has been invited to participate in the NCAA tournament. The Georgetown Hoyas are the 7th seed in the Minneapolis bracket. On Friday, they'll face a very tough Northern Iowa squad in the first round. Here's a [...]
Virginia defeats the Hokies for the third time this season, this one in the first round of the ACC tournament. Ugly game, but nice win for the Hoos that pretty much assures them a spot in the NIT. Georgetown, meanwhile, has reached the semifinals of the Big East tournament. They beat Marquette today to [...]
He was clearly the best point guard in the conference this season, but Virginia has a history of getting screwed in these types of votes. Anyway, it was announced that Sean Singletary has made the All-ACC first team, the first time a Virginia player has been so honored since Bryant Stith in 1992 (yes, [...]
How 'bout those Hoos!
