My first real Wahoo memory was waking up from a nap at the end of the 1984 Peach Bowl to discover that the Hoos were victorious. I was hooked as a fan and enthusiastically supported the home state team as a six year old and ever since.

My first live Wahoo sporting event was the home football game against VPI in 1987 with my Hokie grandfather, my grandmother, and my younger brother. The Hoos won when they stopped a Hokie two point conversion at the end and my grandfather threatened to make me walk home from Charlottesville.

The Hoos will have had to wait thirteen days since a disastrous second half on offense thwarted their chance to score the program's firs...

Fall is a busy time for college baseball programs. And the Hoos are no different. We're currently in the middle of the fall baseball season which is most akin to football's spring practice. Workouts are taking place. The Hoos have played, and won, scrimmages against Liberty and the Ontario Blue Jays. And the first game of the seven game Orange And Blue World Series is in the books with game two scheduled for today (October 8).

Added to this mix this offseason wa...
