Clemson finally broke through into the top half of the ACC last year, ...

With the 2018 MLB Draft signing period expiring on July 6, it's a good time to look at where the UVA Baseball roster sits number wise heading into the next season.

NCAA rules stipulate that Division 1 baseball teams can have a maximum of 35 players on their roster. Those rosters do not have to be finalized until the day before the regular season opener. For that reason, it should come as no surprise if the team has more than 35 players on the fall baseball rost...

Happy Birthday to Ty Jerome!

Send it in, Young Fella! Onions!

Hoos Place is Turning *1* This Summer!

We want to start by thanking all Hoo fans out there who have helped make this a great first year at HOOS Place. We started this website last year as a "By Fans, For Fans" project. We wanted to produce the sort of content (video breakdowns, game previews, ACC-wide coverage, for instance) that we ourselves were craving. 

We didn't know what we were jumping into when we launched last year: The technical and business aspe...

The Jefferson Draft

Posted on July 4, 2018, in Blog by Seattle Hoo.

As I like to do on this day that commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, I turn to the "Jefferson Draft," which is set out below. Now, it's not completely accurate to call this "the" draft, as he went through many drafts, and it is hard to pinpoint any one draft, but the draft set out below is accepted by most scholars of the document as the draft he submitted.  Another caveat is that it likely has an alteration or two that Benjamin Franklin made.  That said, this is what Thomas Jefferson wanted to Declare.  He went farther than his comrades were willing to travel, and the Continental Congress made several changes, most notably one large, portento...

Way Too Early Lineup Projection

Posted on June 28, 2018, in Baseball by Karl Hess.

With their convincing win over Arkansas, Oregon State closed out the 2018 college baseball season. With that chapter closing, we can begin to look towards the 2019 season even if we're a bit premature. Unlike MLB, college baseball doesn't have the traditional hot stove league to carry the offeason. But there's plenty of time between now and the season opener in February 2019 for rampant speculation and guessing.

And that brings us to this post. A couple we...

Devon Hall Drafted

In honor of Devon Hall being drafted, and as a courtesy to Oklahoma City fans who might want to get to know him a little better, here is a limited time video treat:

Devon Hall demonstrated all the qualities required for professional success during his time at UVA

Ranking the Roster

Posted on June 21, 2018, in Football by Kendall.

I suck at ledes, so here's this, simply: I ranked the roster in terms of expected 2018 impact coupled with future impact / overall value to the program. Excluded most of the walk-ons and all of the incoming class of 2018 recruits (bar two). Here we go....

70) Ryan Bischoff, OL/DL, Jr. - He's just a big, strong guy who might not be a great football player. He doesn't currently seem to factor into the thinking along either line.
