The Cavaliers just don't seem to stack up to any teams in their conference, except maybe Maryland or Duke. Throw in the homecoming game against Indiana, and that leaves only three likely chances for a victory. It seems like a longshot that Virginia's head coach Al Groh (coming off a 5-7 season) will return for the 2010 season.
I'm not going to give up on the Cavaliers after week one. Its possible that Saturday's loss will be a learning experience, and the team will go on to play respectably for the rest of the year. The multimillion dollar racehorse that is Virginia football may not be dead just yet. But their awful performance against William & Mary can only mean that the knife is pressed close to its throat.
