Football Week Four

Posted on September 21, 2017, in Football by Kendall.

An email I received from a friend of mine...

"One criticism. One space after a period is the standard nowadays (I know I was taught two spaces as a kid so I imagine you were as well). To me now, the two spaces looks really jarring and unprofessional (coming from a place of love!)"

Roger that. No more double-tap. I'll see what I can do.

Buy: Virginia Cavaliers

The Cavaliers were 2-10 in Bronco Mendenhall's debut last season, but despite a still-thin roster and tough nonconference schedule, they could flirt with what would be just the school's second bowl berth in a decade. Once the team earns that fi...

Football Week Three

Posted on September 13, 2017, in Football by Kendall.

Raking the coals on the Indiana game and stoking the flames on the UConn game; lazy list-making and bullet points; over-used ellipses... but I'm confident you'll see some things here that you won't see anywhere else.  Let's do it, let's get to it...

Your concerns are not unfounded, nor are your fears that Bronco Mendenhall might not be the guy for UVA, might not be the guy to pull Virginia Football out of the Groh/London crater.

Myself, I used to be 100% certain Bronco was the guy.  I am - or maybe I was - the biggest rah-rah Bronco Hoofan you could find.  But now I've slipped to about 65% certainty.  No more rah-rah.  Not good.

The Indiana game was a serious missed opportunity.  A win against the up-and-coming Hoosiers might have been a bellwether event for our team.  I think the defense was up to to the task, but special teams sucked and our tremulous offensive coordinator, Dr. Robert Anae, coordi...
