A Game of Rivals

Posted on September 21, 2018, in Football by Karl Hess.

The road trip for the home game in Tennessee was successful. And now the Hoos return to Scott Stadium for everyone's favorite manufactured rivalry. The deep, persistent hatred between Virginia and cross division rival Louisville is well known in college football circles. There was that time when...hmm. Oh, but everyone remembers...no, wait. And who can forget...SMH. 

It's semi well known that I'd happily ship the Cards off to the AAC or reboot the old ...

Update: It appears that Reece Beekman had plane trouble and was unable to make the trip.  UVA will look to get the visit rescheduled. More if we get it.

This weekend is a huge recruiting weekend for the University of Virginia.  Football will have recruits on hand for their game against Louisville, and the basketball team is hosting four recruits for their official visits.  All of that was upstaged on Friday evening by the stunning announceme...

As we tweeted last night, I have completed my 2018-19 basketball hype video.  I started this last year with "The Mission", which addressed the social issues that had just engulfed us.

The video drops at 12:00 AM EDT on September 25, 2018, just a few hours before the Hoos have their first official practice of the 2018-19 season.

State of the Lines: Defense

Posted on September 18, 2018, in Football by StLouHoo.

Talk to UVA fans this football season and you'll hear a lot of complaining about our line play, both offensive and defensive. The O-Line isn't giving Perkins enough time, or it's not opening up consistent holes for Ellis. The D-Line isn't generating a pass rush or shutting down opponent running attacks without tons of help from the linebackers. These critiques aren't wholly without merit, as we fully expected going into this season the O- and D-Lines were going to be challenges at times.

Hunting Bobcats in Tennessee

Posted on September 14, 2018, in Football by Karl Hess.

A gnarly weather forecast in Charlottesville due to Hurricane Florence has the Hoos on the move this week for an impromptu road trip to Nashville. Despite the location, the opponent will still be the Bobcats of Ohio, the preseason MAC favorite according to their league coaches. Known for a stout running game, what will it take for UVA to earn their second win of the season?

Opponent Watch: 9/18

Posted on September 10, 2018, in Football by StLouHoo.

Welcome back to our newest football feature, Opponent Watch, where we recap the weekend's results of the other teams on Virginia's remaining schedule, to help the fans develop an understanding of what's upcoming. Next week, we'll start looking at UVA's apparent place in the pecking order of the Coastal Division, many ACC schools have yet to play a conference game. This week saw four of our future opponents have games cancelled or postponed due to Hurricane Florence.

Hoos or Hoosiers

Posted on September 6, 2018, in Football by Karl Hess.

The Hoos (1-0) will hit the road this weekend with revenge on their mind. They'll look to avenge a 34 to 17 loss to Indiana last season in the back half of a home and away series. And when they hit the field in Bloomington, they'll be wearing white from head to toe.

Opponent Watch: 9/11
