Cavs are going to name Mike London (Richmond) as their next head coach. Nice choice, he's an impressive person

Seriously, Wahoo fans I live near Charlottesville so I have seen the suffering on UVA fans' faces, it looks somewhat similar to us Skins fans' faces.

I am glad schools have high academic standards because lets face it, 95% of these guys are not going to play on Sundays. I am a long suffering Duke fan and their issue much like UVA's has been there has not been much of a plan nor solid coaching which has cause their football program to be average to below average since the late 80's.

he is a good coach, he was always the most likely to go there. he is the safe hire, for sure, just thought they should have looked at a tuberville or the like, some big name.

Re: Any UVA football fans here?

I like ML and he might be a great coach for UVA but I'm not sold on him. I'm optimistic, but I would have preferred Troy Calhoun. Troy's got history in the old Air Force offense and w/ Jim Grobe at Wake Forest. He's also had a major turnaround at AF which is to be commended.

ML, great guy, but I don't always put alot of stock, in having success w/ other coaches players. He can recruit though and he does have ties to the VA area.

I'm rooting for the guy to get it done though. I'm ready to see some good UVA football now.

Re: Any UVA football fans here?

i think golden from temple would have been a better hire personally, hes a former uva guy as well. he has really turned temple around. but london was the easy choice.
