Same Old Song and Dunce

I've got good news and bad news for you University of Virginia football fans. The good news is that the team actually won a game. Better yet, they looked pretty impressive in doing so; winning 16-3 AT North Carolina. Unfortunately (and, yes, folks, this is the REAL bad news), they lost their best recruit. Yeah, that's right. Tyler Brosius, the number one high school quarterback in the state of North Carolina, has decided that he doesn't really want to play for the Cavaliers after all. No, it seems he'd rather play for N.C. State instead. And why the hell not? That's a program heading in the right direction....with a coach that isn't on the hot seat constantly. Seems like a reasonable move to me. You?....................................................................................P.S. As much as the Cavs' fans are going to be happy with the victory, this is a story-line that's becoming all too familiar. This, I'm saying, in that every time Coach Groh gets on the hot seat (believe me, it's hotter than hot right now - even WITH this victory), the team runs off a couple of victories and dogs get called off for a while. Well, let me tell you something. I don't think that that's going to work this time. Groh is STILL going to go. There isn't an athletic director alive (even UVA's brain-dead Craig Littlepage) that's going to extend this turkey's contract. Not this year....and certainly not next. Taps, anyone?

I can't remember the last time the Jets had consecutine winning seasons. I mean, I don't follow the NFL like I used to but, yeah, it does seem like they've been up and down a lot lately.....As for Mr. Groh, he just can't recruit any more (especially now - being on the hot-seat). Dontae Jones (the number one DB in the state of New Jersey) - he just signed with North Carolina State as well. He had been "considering" Virginia.

I encourage each of those "football fans" to get a life and get off the couch.
