GameDay Preview: Can UVA football break long, long losing streak to Virginia Tech?

It will be 28 degrees in Blacksburg at 8 p.m. Friday. The good weather news for UVA football is that wind isn’t supposed to be a factor. The National Weather Service forecast is for light winds, less than 5 mph.


Mike London gets the QB right, or he’s done

There has been a lot wrong about UVA football these past nine years, three of them winning seasons, but the biggest hindrance has been quarterback play.


Winners and Losers: A busy, busy sports day

Robinson Cano is coming off another solid year in 2013 (27 HR, 107 RBI, .314BA/.383OBP/.516SLG), but 10 years at $240 million for a 31-year-old second baseman? The Yankees will have to settle for overpaying for a 31-year-old base stealer (Jacoby Ellsbury, seven years/$153 million) and a 29-year-old catcher (Brian McCann, five years/$85 million).


ACC has 16 players named to NFL Pro Bowl

Atlantic Coast Conference schools had 16 of their former players chosen for this year’s National Football League Pro Bowl Wednesday evening in the initial selections to the prestigious NFL all-star game.


Chris Graham: Mike London’s text, Matt Schaub’s tweets

Remember when I speculated postgame that Mike London, when asked about his baffling endgame strategy that had him saving two timeouts to use to ice Virginia Tech kicker Cody Journell on the game’s final play, rather than deploying the timeouts to give his team anywhere from 55 seconds to a minute to try to come up with a tying score, would say that he had given up on his offense?


Winners and Losers: Brett Favre, Matt Schaub

WINNER (For the Moment): Brett Favre It’s still not looking good for ol’ Father Time, but the snowstorm and Metrodome roof collapse that pushed the Vikings-Giants game back a day at least gives his consecutive-games-played streak streak a glimmer of life left. My take: I hope he doesn’t start, play a series, hand the ball […]

WINNER: Schaub burns ‘Skins Hard to say there was a loser on Sunday at FedEx. Matt Schaub threw for 497 yards in leading the Houston Texans to a come-from-behind 30-27 overtime victory over the Washington Redskins, who did everything but put Houston away in the fourth quarter. Graham Gano had a chip-shot field goal blocked […]

Verica: Don't call it a comeback

For a stretch in 2008, Marc Verica looked like the second coming of Matt Schaub. Running Mike Groh’s West Coast offense, Verica passed for 200 or more yards in six straight games, and led a Virginia team that had stumbled out of the gate to a 1-3 start to four straight wins and a brief […]


The bell tolls for the Grohs

The next time Mike Groh has an offense ranked in the top 100 in I-A will, unfortunately for Virginia fans, be the first time. And keep in mind, there are 119 I-A football teams, so we’re only talking about cracking the top 83 percent of offenses here. But don’t be Mark Berman of The Roanoke […]
