UVA Rising

I loved the way the Cavs played against a solid Richmond team. Richmond was a good first game and the team looks and sounds energized. I really like Mike London and think he could be a great recruiter and coach for the Cavs.

I don't expect an ACC title this year, but I'd like to see them play .500 or better and make a bowl game.

It was a good win. It was close early but UVA pulled away in the second half. What I like about that is that it shows that UVA made adjustments at halftime and took advantage of weaknesses they found. That's good coaching.

Robs loved Groh unconditionally but he was not the guy. I like London and think he will do a good job at UVA. He is a good recruiter and will be able to grab in state talent that has typically gone to Tech.

I believe UVA will be a nationally ranked team in the next year or two.

I love London, I loved Groh, and I loved Welsh. I don't see any reason to root against a coach, unless his guys are not graduating and committing crimes.

If you watch the "UVA Rising" shows on Comcast, and you are a Cavs fan, you get really pumped up. This week's behind the scenes look at the Cavs, mixed with the game highlights, are just awesome. The pre- and post-game speeches that London had are great.

I think the Cavs will surprise a few teams this year, and certainly will not be in the cellar of the ACC.

Groh sucked and you know it.

Your problem is that you follow your teams blindly. It's okay to remain a fan but disapprove of a player or a coach when they show ineptitude.

Whatever. You finally have gotten some much needed change over there and seem to be headed in the right direction.

Why are you talking about Groh? Let it go . . . let it go.

You said you "loved" him. I was just saying that he sucked. Seems like I might've struck a chord there. Apologies for hurting your feelings of love towards Groh.

Let it go . . . Let it go. It is London time now.
