Well part of the problem is the UVa mindset... Alumni from UVa would rather


see the football team suck and be able to rib VT about how UVa is better because it is not a football school and wins a bunch in soccer, swimming, etc.
There have been so many years of "We are not going to lower ourselves to win in football" like lowly VT that I dont think people want to win but so much. People on here do because they actually care about it, but 2010 UVa grad William Ableson III would rather drink fruity drinks and talk about the upcoming squash national championship than support having a big time football program.
This saddens me because I have been a UVa fan for over 30 years, but this is just how I see it. UVa had a chance to be a top program in the country when Welsh was here and at the very start of Groh, but as good as Welsh was, he never got over the hump of being the 7 win team and so now that is the standard for UVa. All anyone really wants is to win 7 games a year, beat VT some so they can laugh at them for letting an academic school beat a football school and that is fine with most people. Heck some dont event care about that.
Bottom line is to be good you have to want to be good and UVa hasnt shown that they really want to be good.
