Sometimes somebody says something that just gives you a window into their thinking. In today's local Charlottesville paper, the Daily Progress, we get an insight into the LOLUVA mindset, courtesy of Jerry Ratcliffe. It's a creepy place to be, for sure. The link to the full article is below.
Damnit, they just fixed it and I didn't get a screenshot. UVA's homepage was hacked for a little while and just had a black screen with some logo on the front. Just another LOLUVA moment. Wish I could have captured it. If you got a screenshot I'd love to see it.
This comes from the Washington Post via Drudge....
Seems that somebody pulled a prank at hooville, prompting a wholesale dump of spirits around campus (I refuse to use the G word...ground is something you stand on, not in).
You have to be sure to read the comments on the story....my favorite is from someone named postfan10, who should be given an honorary TKP membership: "Zima stock just went up."
I was unable to track down an official attendance number, but UVa spring game jokes will continue for another year. More grabs are here and here. Thanks, 'Hoos. If you're interested in reading actual football things about the scrimmage, a few writers were among the masses at Scott Stadium.
From Mark Giannotto's recap, UVa's new offense was a bit of a mess.
But Saturday's spring game only confirmed that the Cavaliers will need to solve many of the same problems that ailed them during last year's 4-8 campaign. In a defense-dominated scrimmage that featured 14 sacks and three safeties, Virginia proved its quarterback situation remains in flux, especially with an offensive line that couldn't open up holes in the running game.
Even the final score, with the Orange team besting the Blue team, 18-15, added to the intrigue because backup quarterback Greyson Lambert accounted for two Orange-squad touchdown drives, compared with just one orchestrated by No. 1 option David Watford.
Phillip Sims remains UVa's third string QB.
I also find it funny that the name is "Chasing Uncompromised Excellence"
On November 27, 2004 Virginia Tech beat Virginia 24-10 to win back the Commonwealth Cup. Virginia hasn't possessed the cup since. Counting the day Tech won it back, today is the 3,000th day of continuos possession for the Hokies. If you're a purist, and want to count full days, or time since the final whistle, then you're celebrating 3,000 at some point tomorrow. Either way, it's been such a long time it took math to figure out. Or in other words...

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia head football coach Mike London announced today the hiring of Steve Fairchild as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Fairchild replaces Bill Lazor, who resigned his position with the Virginia football program to accept a coaching position in the National Football League.
You have to admire a man who can admit he made a mistake....
Just wanted to go ahead and post this up here since I keep these videos unlisted on youtube. It's always fun watching the final moments as Mike London fails with his timeouts. Enjoy.
