We're finally seeing just how good the HOOS can be! This team has come together under Mike London and are playing like a team. This was one of the most nerve racking games I've ever watched the HOOS play. Not for the faint at heart that's for sure! GO-HOOS-GO!!!

If you had asked the football experts at the start of the season if after 11 games UVA would be 8 and 3,beat Georgia Tech,Miami in Miami and Florida State in Tallahassee they would have laughed in your face.That game last night almost gave me a heart attack!It is nice though,to have something to cheer about as a Hoos fan.A win next week would truly make this a dream season.
Win or lose,Mike London has brought excitement back to UVA football!

I'm finally breathing normally again. There were two almost pivotal calls last night, that given the outcome, I'm glad were made. One was the face mask on 4th down against Virginia. The other was the replay decision that the Florida State catch, with time expiring, was not a catch. Had the face mask call not been made or the catch not been overturned giving FSU additional time on the clock, Florida State would have been crying for how many more weeks about bad calls. From the replays, it looks like the face mask was grabbed. Don't know that it should have been a 15 yarder, but that was the call and the officials were much closer than I was sitting here in Charlottesville with a totally biased opinion. I think replay did show that the catch was an incomplete pass. Now I'm in no way an expert on all of the rules governing football. I had never heard of the call, disconcerting signals, made against Virginia, practically putting Florida State in a chip shot position for a field goal given the year long success of their kicker. Just because I've never heard of the call before doesn't mean it was wrong, but it sure did put Virginia in a bad position. The announcers were almost sure the only possibility of preserving the 1 point victory was a blocked kick. I'm surprised the scorer hadn't already put the points on the scoreboard. Just goes to show, football and almost every sport is totally unpredictable. For the sake of my heart, I hope next week's game is nowhere near as close, with Virginia coming out on top.

Hope the "fans" who have already sold their tickets enjoy the money they got while wishing they had their tickets back. Win or not, I think this team has earned a good turnout of Hoo fans next week, not a stadium that could be on the Tech campus.

First, does anyone know what the heck that call was against UVA's defense at the end there, the one where everyone was sure it was going to be a DOG against FSU?

Second, do college refs still have discretion to call a face mask either incidental or flagrant?

Thought I was having flashback to US-Soviet Olympic basketball, where refs kept re-doing the last plays til they got the result they wanted! Kudos to whoever replaced Schautz during final drive, hope he's better soon!

GO HOOS!!! And for those that were wondering like I was, the late game penalty against the Cavs that was called "Disconcerting Signals" is defined by the Football Refs Organization as: "No player shall use words or signals that disconcert opponents when they are preparing to put the ball in play. No player may call defensive signals that simulate the sound or cadence of (or otherwise interfere with) offensive starting signals." So in short UVA was not doing anything intentionally wrong, just calling a defensive motion at the wrong time apparently. But either way they fought all the way through as they have the whole year and a win was rewarded to them in the end. Congratulations and gool luck next week boys!!!
