UVa Basketball Preview Part I: The Team

This season could not start fast enough. Since most UVa fans have been done with football for about a month now, the Men’s Basketball season will be a breath of fresh air and renewed hope. For the first time since the 2001-2002 basketball season, Virginia will start the season ranked in the Top 25: 24th […]

UVA Football Preview: Clemson

Great news: basketball starts next Friday. Bad news: we still have to play football. And while the tone of this website will change drastically next week, we still have to muddle through 4 more football games. To make it worse, this Saturday marks the start of our horrible November stretch which leads up to final […]

UVa Football Preview: Georgia Tech

Despite my best efforts in calling the ACC offices, UVa still has to play Georgia Tech this Saturday. And while the spread is only 10 points, it could get very ugly, very quick. That would seamlessly follow the absurd 2nd half the Cavaliers posted last weekend. What, if anything, can the Hoos do this week […]

UVa Football: Reality Check

If you haven’t garnered from our Twitter account, we talk about other things besides sports. Movies. Music. Technology. One of my favorite movies that we used to watch at The University was the “Kevin Smith” Trilogy: Clerks, Mallrats, and Chasing Amy. In the latter one, there is a scene where Jason Lee sits down Ben […]

UVa Football Preview: Duke

More and more, it looks like the Hoos will be bordering on a sub-mediocrity and serious management issues. It is not the talent aspect now-a-days, it comes down to game management, whether it is finishing drives or play calling/execution. But we have to live with what we have this year, and try to finish the […]

UVA Football Preview: Maryland

For most of you, it has been a very trying week. While the thought of a bowl game is pretty much out of the picture, the Hoos are focused on trying to salvage a season at or better than the previous season. While a 4-8 or 5-7 mark now might look pretty hard, there are […]

UVA Football Preview: Ball State

It has taken a lot of self-control not to go off on a massive rant about last week’s performance. Many hours were spent meditating and practicing yoga (not really) and I have come to terms with a lot of things. First, we have a great defense. Not good, not very good, but great. Sure we […]

UVA Football Preview: Pittsburgh

After a few weeks of games that haven’t really told the Wahoos what kind of team they have this season, we start a stretch of games that will define the season. It was not a mystery that the Cavs were going to get throttled by Oregon, and subsequently do the same thing to VMI, but […]

The Shammy: Bottoming Out

It wasn’t a good week. It wasn’t a bad week. It was just a week, but we will take it. Going 5-5-1 might not look good, but it’s like the housing market. We’ve bottomed out and looking to now turn it around. Although we are still -5 on the season, this week should get us […]

UVA Football Preview: VMI

I know it is really, really, really early in the week to get this one out. Now there are a couple of very plausible reasons why this is coming out on a Monday night, but at the forefront is that this matchup is not one of our premier games of the season. Nothing against the […]

The Shammy: Sorry…

My bad people. We have gotten off to a very rough start this year, and there is no excuse for it. I don’t know what it is, but the Shammy is using the bye week to watch some more teams play. While it might not help for this week’s picks, it should pay off down […]

Bye Week Blues: From Lows to Highs

No, you didn’t miss it. There wasn’t a wrap on the Oregon game. That was not by mistake. I didn’t want to write 2 articles about the same thing: one that told what went wrong on Saturday, and what they need to work on during the bye week. But we are not going to dwell […]

The Shammy: Butt Fumble

Well, if only Mark Sanchez’s old team would have shown up in Hawaii, The Shammy might have had a .500 week. But sadly, we started our 2013 campaign 4-6, -2 overall. Take off the juice, and we are in a bit of a hole. So we dug deep this week and found some gems in […]

UVA Football Preview: Oregon

Under contractual obligations, I am required to put together a preview for this weekend’s game between UVa and Oregon. I say ‘game’ in the loosest of terms as I see this more of an opportunity to catch up with friends, socialize, and discuss current events. As far as the actual game is concerned, it will […]

BYU Recap: Stolen Win

It was delayed. It was storming. It was soggy. But, most of all, it wasn’t pretty. Yes, the general consensus is that ‘a win is a win’. A game that was coming off the Vegas line as ‘pick em’ ended up 19-16 in UVa’s favor should not be shocking, but how we arrived at that […]
