2020 Football Preview Kickoff

Welcome, everyone, to the official kickoff of Hoos Place’s 2020 football season preview. We’ve been working hard to provide Virginia football fans some of the most in-depth coverage available online (and for FREE no less!). We’ll spend the next month rolling out content, including position group reports, breakdowns of the offensive and defensive phases, and an overview of the schedule, before we wrap up with final thoughts on Virginia’s upcoming season.

In these weird, uncertain times, we understand a lot can change over a matter of weeks or months, but we felt that nonetheless Hoo fans would want a sense of normalcy leading into the 2020 season, and even if the schedule and the standings and any potential postseason are all in a weird state of flux, these are still our Hoos and we’re going to give them some thorough preseason coverage.

So without further ado, we present to you our (tentative) roll-out schedule:
