I think Al was hated so much that they tried to find the anti-Groh. And they succeeded. Similar to what the Red Sox did with Francona-Valentine. Groh might not have been a very good game day coach, but I don't think he was ever this bad. He also ran a tight ship. Whether you liked him or not, players had respect for him because they knew this. No way he would let the players get away with these personal fouls.
Larry Fedora would have been perfect there.

Did you hear Hoo got arrested? Thomas Jefferson would be proud!
He's going to be a pain in our ass...glad he isn't at UVA, losing to UNC sucks but it would be worse to have him at UVA
So what part of the Eastern Shore are you from?
Oh I agree, but I think he fits the UVA mold.
most penalized teams:
11th - unc with 108 pen. 1029 yds.
13th - miami with 108 pen. 927 yds
34th - uva with 101 pen. 915 yds
62nd - VT with 89 pen. 744 yds.
just to name a few
Grew up in Onancock......miss the shore.......
Anthony Harris said the reason he committed there is because "Coach London is like one of the boys" and I said at that moment, that will blow up big time.
I remember a quote from somewhere last year from some UVA alumni lady stating that she was upset with other alumni selling there tickets to VT fans which made her have to set among the "CRETINS", thas was pretty funny. I like being a VT cretin!
I think that sums up the attitude towards us, pretty pathetic.
Could not agree more. There lack of discipline comes directly from seeing ML carry on and whine after every call that doesn't go his way. Can you imagine what he would have looked like after the non reversal of the fumble last week. His head probably would have exploded.
losing with class = we don't care about fb is it lax season yet?

@beercontrol ... a know-nothing
Hey, at least she didn't call us rubes.
Don't over think it middleguard, it's just a case of elitism, or a superiority complex. Nothing you do will be good enough, we win a NC and it will be winning without class, or the fact that VT's degree isn't good enough and we only win because we have lower standards. Excuses galore, there are reactionary measures to make sure your highs aren't too high, and even if everything is great on the surface, you are speaking with people that no matter what will have a way where your good or great isn't better than theirs. Nothing you can do about it, no reason to care about it really, just smile and realize that if people are trying to keep you in check, then they are jealous.
A pretty common technique is for people to change the argument or deflect it, puts them in control, which in turn triggers them to be back on top mentally. If UVa is sucking more, then let's find a way to make sure we are better than VT. How do we do that? Oh yeah, they are losing with class? What now? Who says that? Seriously, it's football. People often at times blame others for something they do, it's funny when arrogant people blame others for having low class. Please, being judgmental is poor class.
*disclaimer: My views aren't representative of the entire Hoo population, just about 95% of it.
We learned a long time ago how to deal with these fools since it's often a daily occurrence if the discussion of UVA & VT comes up comes up.
I always want to post & bring up any situations that bring out the holier than the almighty attitude these clowns have, even though they know us & Caleb.
We Laugh & say that's OK, continue to laugh, grin, giggle, point & just be total CRETINS!
It is of course an exercise in futility to converse with them regarding their sports team- You just have to ignore the topic
My father, a 1943 grad of VT, observed that good kids from southside Va who went to UVA would change after about 2 year on campus at which time "the rot would set in."
Its a process- dont waste your time!
My wife's whole family is from either Parksley or Bayford. We spend a lot of time on the shore.
