A Wahoo diehard since attending summer camp in Charlottesville as a 5th grader, I graduated from the E-School in 2003, which puts me in the Mapp/Mason/Watson class.

I've bounced around the country since, for a time in St Louis, currently in San Antonio (go Spurs). I thank the heavens for the digital streaming age in which we live for the ability to maintain my addiction to Virginia athletics no matter my time zone.

The Hoos are 14-6 right now, 6-4 in the ACC. By the standards of a lot of the league, that's not a bad record. By the multigenerational historical standards of UVA's program, that's not a bad record. But compared to the standards set by the past six seasons, that's a somewhat disappointing record.

We rarely talk much recruiting during the basketball season, but I let my brain go down a rabbit hole this week and thought it merited a post. We have three 2020 freshmen signed for next year, guys we recruited and signed over the previous two years. But every spring, UVA is involved in the "late cycle" of recruiting. That's the April/May recruiting cycle that focuses on last-minute high school seniors and transfers. Last year, to us, that meant successful signings of Justin McKoy, Tomas Woldetensae, and Sam Hauser. Francisco Caffaro was a late add in 2018, and in 2017 Tony welcomed Nigel Johnson and Francesco Badocchi at the proverbial 11th hour.

We're near a month into the new season, and with holiday tournaments and the ACC-B1G Challenge behind us, not to mention a pair of league games for most of the programs, it's a pretty good time to take stock of how all 15 teams rack and stack. A few teams are obviously struggling, a few are obviously good, but a lot are stuck in a squishy, indeterminate middle.
