QB change in the offing at UVa.?
“We’ll look at it, look and see how they did, and try to find out who can move the team and who can get us in position to make those makeable third downs, those opportunities to score points – all the things that a quarterback has to do,” London said after benching starter and fifth-year senior Marc Verica in the third quarter of UVa.’s 44-10 loss to rival North Carolina following Verica’s third interception of the game.
Kevin Reddick returned the pick 22 yards for a picksix that gave UNC a 37-10 lead and effectively put the kibosh on whatever hopes the ‘Hoos had for a big second-half comeback.
Verica was booed as he trotted off the field, and then fans greeted backup Ross Metheny, a redshirt freshman, with wild applause when he took the field for the next Virginia offensive series. After the game, Verica seemed resigned to the fate of being relegated to the bench, and took a shot at Virginia fans on his way there.
