UVA Football fans had plenty of reason to be frustrated after their Cavaliers went down to an ugly 24-3 defeat at Illinois on Saturday.
Last season’s record-setting offense could only manage three points against a bottom-feeder Big Ten team.
As happens in this day and age, plenty expressed their frustrations on social media.
I’d say enjoy the following Top 10 fan tweets (plus a bonus tweet), but you probably won’t.
1. Expecting even more fans dressed as empty seats.
Tech lost to ODU and still manages to have a great environment. Uva lost to Illinois we will have 35,000 next week against ODU.

4. That’s a lot of cheesecake.
Drowned my UVA football sorrows in a $120 Cheesecake Factory order last night.

Will UVA students get any refund on their mandatory $720 athletics fee after yesterday’s football loss?

6. Even struggling would have been better.
Struggling would have been a massive improvement over whatever that was out there. I get what you’re saying there’s def a lot of turnover on the O-Line but they returned a 4500 yard dual-threat passer and all of his weapons. This was horrific. Elliot was badly outclassed here.

I’m done, this is Mike London 2.0 garbage.
