VaSportsOnline.com: London-Choices to make at running back

A hundred twenty teams in I-A. Virginia was 118th in total offense in 2009. A key reason for that – the Cavs were 112th in the nation in rushing (99.1 yards a game) and 114th in yards gained per rushing attempt (2.9 yards per attempt).

Remember the old line about three yards and a cloud of dust – yeah, the ‘Hoos couldn’t muster the three yards.

Mike London has a lot to work on with the 2010 Cavs. A focal point has been reviving the running game at UVa., which has in the past featured future NFL starts in the likes of Barry Word, Terry Kirby, Tiki Barber and Thomas Jones.

Don’t get too excited just yet. The leading returning rusher from a year ago is redshirt freshman Dominique Wallace, who ran for 49 yards in three games before suffering a season-ending knee injury at Southern Miss.
