How many UVA fans out there like myself are becoming concerned about this teams future - judging by the barely half full stadium there are quite few. It wasn't about winning more than 6 games this season as much as it was showing improvement. Which there has clearly not been any improvement. I know we are a young team - however when the amount of mistakes and turnovers/penalties get this bad, it is a reflection of the coaching staff. By switching QB's constantly dosent give fans any faith in next season either. You have to settle on a QB for better or worse and let him learn - buld confidence and grow , which sets you up for the future. I want London to succeed dearly but alot of his decsions are mind boggling and make no sence at all. I hope I'm wrong but at this point he makes me think he is a good recruiter and nothing else.

I believe we're past the stage of being concerned. Just wondering if the cost of putting a team on the field is worthwhile.

Who wants to watch a team that can't even practice in the rain. These little cupcakes need a practice facility to run in if it's raining. There hasn't been a football team in this town for a long time and probably won't be for even longer. What kid worth five cent would want to come to this school. There is nothing to offer them in this liberal toadstool of a town. People wonder why they go to Florida or California, I would too.

I can understand the frustration that I hear in the comments.I feel it too,but I see something down the road,certainly not this season but maybe the next,that's looking good.I think London and his coaching crew are learning too,but he's on the right track.UVA has a lot of talent but they're very young.London is new to football at this level.Be patient,better days are coming!

You're right in one respect,it's been a long time since UVA gave it's true fans much to cheer about.Just remember,Coach London inherited Al Groh's mess.If you're looking for instant success you're going to be sorely dissapointed.It's going to take London a couple of seasons to rebuild,from the ground up,a football program at UVA that's a winner.If you're that impatient,why don't you just become a Va.Tech fan like all the others that jump on the bandwagon of a team that wins a lot of games?I think you're obnoxious enough to be a Va.Tech fan!
