Virginia Spring Sports: Masters Edition

This weekend begins ‘a tradition unlike any other.’ But when the Masters in the rearview mirror on Sunday, UVa gets rolling with the post-season for spring sports. And while some will/should/might go smoother than others, all have positioned themselves for the final push. So we got to thinking, if the different UVa sports were players […]

UVa Baseball: Reversal of Fortune

This is usually the time of year we have been knee deep in the Spring Sports, mainly, of recent, baseball. With the Cavs playing lights out for the good part of the last decade, it usually is front and back page news right now. But a very impressed and unprecedented basketball season has mostly turned […]

Once In A Lifetime

“You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?” It’s not that we didn’t have chances. We haven’t been completely devoid of great teams or talent. We’ve had moments and games which will live with us, ones that we talk about around a water cooler or draft beer. But while we have been in […]

A Wahoo’s Guide to the NCAA Regionals

In my younger, more academic years, I found that a long trip up Route 29 to the Sheetz in Madison County in the middle of the night was a great way to clear your head and relax for a while. Sunday’s midnight drive from Raleigh to Richmond to Hampton Roads was the complete opposite. While […]

From Rodney to Aretha and Back Again

While most people were prepping for St. Patrick’s Day parties across the nation, this morning started like every other morning these past 2 months for UVa fans. Wake up, grab a cup of coffee (or Monster), check email and Twitter, and look at each other and just shrug.  The standard non-verbal conversation Wahoo fans have […]

UVa Football Signing Day ‘14

It came and went in a flash this morning, if you call 3 ½ hours a flash. While the four-letter networks will be sitting around with 13+ hours of coverage, for the second year in a row, Virginia wrapped up its National Signing Day with zero surprises either way. When the dust settled, the Hoos […]

Signing Day ’14: Class Redux

For the past few years, UVa fans official cast off the doom and gloom of the previous season when the National Signing Day comes around. It is the first preview of the new student-athletes who we will entrust the future of our football program to. And while this season will be the make-or-break season for […]

Path to the Tourney

Hello. It’s been a long time. I know I haven’t been living up to my end of the bargain. So much stuff going on in Wahooland and I’ve been gallivanting around The Commonwealth. Well, all that is coming to an end. While we, and by we, I mean Bloguin, is revamping our site, I decided […]


Tough thing about exam/winter breaks is you have too much time to think.  With the 14 days between the Green Bay and Northern Iowa games, too many people have too much time to sit around and think about the basketball season to date. And while it hasn’t been the best start ever, the Hoos have […]

Where Do We Go Now?

It was our worst season since 1981. After that season, UVa Athletic Director Jim Copeland decided to go in another direction and fire then coach Dick Bestwick and hire a little known coach called George Welsh. The rest was history. Fast forward to yesterday, and in the wake of a 16-6 loss to Virginia Tech, […]

Men Hoops Head to….Texas?

Hope everyone is ready for Thanksgiving. As most of you are fighting your way through Hokies talking smack to a 2-9 team because they don’t have any more cows to milk, I thought we would skip the VPISUx preview and talk about basketball and where we are at. Not surprisingly, Virginia has started 5-1 with […]

UVa Football Preview: Miami

You don’t realize how stress free bye weeks are until you have one. Last Saturday was very, very relaxing, outside of watching the Hoos basketball team in Charlotte slowly pull away from Davidson. But now there is no stopping til the end, which is thankfully only a week and a half away. This week is […]

UVa Basketball Preview Part III: The Prediction

So we looked at the team and the schedule. Now it is time to figure out how it will go down. Last season, I pegged the Hoos for a 17-to-19 win regular season, with 8-10 coming out of conference, and a square NIT bid. We finished 21-10, with 10 OOC, and nibbled on a NCAA […]

UVA Football Preview: UNC

Those looking for Part III of our preseason basketball coverage, hold tight. That will be out tomorrow. I decided to get this week’s football preview out as we normally do on Wednesday so that we can close up the week on a more positive note. As for this weekend’s football matchup, while neither team has […]

UVa Basketball Preview Part II: The Schedule

Yesterday we looked at the Cavalier squad, today we will attempt to breakdown the schedule. Last year the Hoos got dinged by the NCAA Selection Committee on two fronts: their non-conference schedule and too many ‘big losses’. This year’s schedule is certainly augmented by the inclusion of 3 new ACC teams and an 18-game conference […]
