Kyle Guy details his experience after the loss to UMBC in emotional post

The Virginia second year describes his mindset and emotions after the Hoos’ historic loss. The University of Virginia men’s basketball season ended with a catastrophic loss to UMBC, making the Hoos the first ever No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 16 seed. None of that is news, of course, but Tuesday night Virginia fans got some insight into the mindset of the team. Kyle Guy took to Facebook to share a two part post about the fateful game. The first post was in the form of a letter he wrote to himself before the UMBC matchup, the second detailing his emotions and experience during and after...

NFL Draft Profiles: Virginia Cavaliers Safety Quin Blanding

NFL Draft Profiles: Virginia Cavaliers Safety Quin Blanding

Virginia Cavaliers players Quin Blanding and Andrew Brown will forever be linked in the minds of UVA Football fans—they were the two 5-star guys who committed to play for Mike London. In all likelihood, they kept London employed for an extra year or two because of the promise they provided. Blanding had a far better college career than Brown did, including starting every game of his college career. He leaves Virginia as the all-time leading tackler in school history, with 495 tackles. He’s sixth all-time in ACC history in tackles, and is the top among DBs. That production is what’s...

NFL Draft Profile: Virginia QB Kurt Benkert

The most important position on a football field is the QB. That’s obvious. What isn’t obvious are the traits that make a good QB. Tom Brady went in the sixth round of the NFL Draft his year. JaMarcus Russell went in the first round. Obviously, football scouts don’t really know who is going to be good and who isn’t. There are, however, a couple of things that scouts are looking for. One is, of course, arm strength. Let me show you what arm strength is. Virginia Cavaliers quarterback Kurt Benkert throws that ball from his own 27 yard line to about the Boise State 12...

NFL Draft Profile: Virginia’s Andrew Brown

Saying that Andrew Brown’s career at Virginia was disappointing is an understatement. The 5-star recruit spent much of his freshman year dealing with a shoulder injury. His sophomore year didn’t go a whole lot better because of turf toe. But that’s not to take away from his success with the Virginia Cavaliers and his prospect of playing at the next level. Once head coach Bronco Mendenhall came in and implemented his 3-4 defense, Brown was actually pretty good. Between his junior and senior seasons, Brown totaled 84 tackles (23.5 TFLs) and 9.5 sacks. He also forced and recovered a...

NFL Draft Profile: Virginia Cavaliers’ Micah Kiser

Character is a big thing in the NFL these days. There have been so many bad headlines from NFL players that teams are wary of guys with off-the-field concerns. Teams also want “locker room guys” who get along with everybody, display some leadership and don’t cause headaches for the coaching staff. In that way, Virginia Cavaliers’ Micah Kiser is a dream for any NFL team. He’s reputed to be a great guy off the field. He won the Campbell Trophy, referred to as the “Academic Heisman.” His goals for after his playing career are to get into college athletics administration....

COMMITMENT! Blacksburg wide receiver Tiquest Terry picks UVA

COMMITMENT! Blacksburg wide receiver Tiquest Terry picks UVA

Shifty speedster becomes first commitment from Virginia in UVA’s class of 2019 For the last two seasons, the Virginia Cavaliers’ offense has gotten big contributions from one of its smallest players. After 51 receptions for 584 yards in his sophomore campaign, slot receiver Olamide Zaccheaus busted out in 2017: 85 receptions (more than the next two receivers combined), 895 yards receiving, and another 187 yards rushing (good for second on the team behind Jordan Ellis). All of that from a guy who clocks in at 5-foot-8. Now UVA’s class of 2019 has locked in its second player shorter...

Bennett hasn’t lost a step from three. It may be the offseason, but the Virginia Men’s Basketball team never rests. The ACC announced next season’s matchups earlier today, and this afternoon, the official Twitter account shared an incredible video. Check it out: Game Recognize Game!

Virginia takes series against Virginia Tech, begins long climb up the ACC standings

The Cavaliers gutted out a 2-1 series win over the weekend against in-state rival Virginia Tech In a weekend that featured the Virginia men’s lacrosse team finally getting an ACC win (read: got the 50,000-pound monkey off their back), the Cavalier baseball team continued the good feelings with an inspiring couple of games. Over the course of the series, the University of Virginia baseball team played three incredibly different baseball games. The opening game of the series can be summarized in two words: Derek Casey. The second game is even easier: Blah. The rubber match of the series is...

No. 13 Virginia men’s lacrosse scores huge ACC victory over North Carolina, 15-12

No. 13 Virginia men’s lacrosse scores huge ACC victory over North Carolina, 15-12

First ACC win for the Hoos since 2014. It was a rainy, dreary evening in Chapel Hill, but the No. 13 Virginia Cavaliers’ men’s lacrosse team was all smiles as they left with their first regular season ACC win of the season after a 15-12 victory over the Tar Heels. The win was Virginia’s first regular season conference victory since 2014 - 19 games - and kept their postseason hopes alive. Michael Kraus once again led all scorers with seven points on three goals and four assists, and Mike D’Amario (four goals) and Ian Laviano (three goals) each had a hat trick. Midfielders Matt...

WEEKEND PREVIEW: Cavaliers to Host Hokies in Must Win Series

WEEKEND PREVIEW: Cavaliers to Host Hokies in Must Win Series

Let’s get the obvious out of the way now. At 4-8 in the ACC through 12 games, this is easily Coach O’Connor’s worst start to ACC play. The last time Virginia finished a season four games or more under .500 in ACC play was the 2002 Cavaliers that finished 8-16. Forget NCAA Tournament hopes, the Hoos are in serious danger of missing the 12 team ACC tournament next month. They are currently tied with Notre Dame, Boston College, and Pitt for the 10th spot. But the season is not lost yet. This weekend the 12-15, 5-7 Virginia Tech Hokies come to town. A series sweep would go a long way in...

Jay Huff out for 3-4 months with shoulder injury

Virginia big man tore his labrum before UMBC game. While Wahoos are (rightfully) celebrating the commitment of four star shooting guard Casey Morsell, there’s always some bad news to even things out. As reported by Doug Doughty of the Roanoke Times, Virginia big man Jay Huff will be out for 3-4 months as he recovers from a torn labrum suffered in practice the day before the NCAA tournament loss to UMBC. According to Jay’s father, Mike, Huff got “tangled up” in practice with a teammate. They cleared Huff to play in the NCAA tournament, but after returning to Charlottesville, the...
