He will not go until signing day, you're an idiot. I jus said I never count Bama out, but they're a good bit behind Michigan and VT right now. I'm concerned with Michigan a lot more than anyone else.
You're extremely off base on this whole thing, and Dashawn in general, especially with your " he likes the attention " comment.
At what point is UVA getting back in his top 3 as you predicted? I know you said before NSD, just wondering how long we had to wait.
You're delusional if you think Hand is magically different than any other 17 year old kid and doesn't want the attention. Keep waiting for him to commit somewhere during the spring, summer, and fall. It isn't happening it will be 2014 before he makes a decision.
WAHOO 4 LIFE!!
I'll see his Uncle at a basketball tourney April 6-7. I'll ask him.
Ok please report back, as that info has proven to be solid. Keep up the great work.
I haven't seen his Uncle in almost a year, I relayed exactly what he told me. I'll give you the real scoop in about 3 weeks. They may not be in a good mood when my team goes to the 757 and brings that trophy back to the 540.
Ok good to know dude, thanks..
Who is predicting 8 wins?
y'all sound really tight.
I wouldn't say tight. Only reason I got to know him was he used to play basketball for UVA in the 90's I had no idea at first he was Dashawn's dads brother until after the fact.
Hoos, count your blessings once again tonight. Be glad you didn't have to watch ANOTHER former player of your's shine on national tv and lead his team to an NCAA tournament win....
I swear it really is amazing at the talent we have that is heavily contributing elsewhere that used to be Hokies.

Playahtr predicted 8 wins for UVA next season. It's back about 10-12 pages.
Here you go Kezki, one of UVAs finest.
The majority will be more realistic though, I would love 8 wins, but 3-5 is more realistic
plus one my friend..

Committed somewhere or not, its not like other schools will stop recruiting him anyway. Hes the #1 player in the country. So it really doesnt matter when he commits...
Damn, had an uncle play ball at UVA and still makes comments like this...
"Virginia Tech is close to home, and they're the hometown favorite. Everybody knows that if I had to choose between Virginia and Virginia Tech I would choose Virginia Tech. "
Don't let the 247 Hoo crowd fool you, if you only read that board and didn't talk to other people this is exactly what you would think. Everyone that is a member over there is well aware that there are lots of players, recruits and parents on that board, and if anyone questions too much about London in a way that will in anyway jeopardize 2014's possible class they get called out and/or PM'ed. I give London credit in marketing too recruits, there is a reason certain folks have inside scoop, that wasn't the case for Al, so no one had his back...if you are an insider are you going to bite the hand that feeds you?
I work with and among many Hoos that have season tickets to both BBall and Football and they are NONE too happy with London....you just won't see it on their boards
i said it and I stand behind it. If you're thinking 3-5 wins then your going to be surprised in a good way.
Then they really must not be real Hoo fans. Speaking honestly most Hoo fans were frustrated with London at times last year, the rotating QB's some questionable calls on going for it on 4th down or not using timeouts when the rest of us would. You guys act like he is just some chump making calls to make them. I can tell you I can't name one fellow Hoo that I know personally that has ever said he needs to be fired so you must work with some pansy ass Hoo fans.
I love how you guys keep leaving out the fact that Jon Oliver himself has said no matter what happens he's safe until 2015.
I think the reverse in a bad way.
PH, you have been reading the cool aid too much IMO. You are like the guy that predicts too many or too few wins and then can say "see I told you I was right" and if you are wrong you can easily pass it off because no one else was dumb enough to make a prediction like that...I too have nailed your season wins/losses the last 3 years...and I said 5 until you scheduled Oregon...I think 4 is the most realistic #...and to get to 4 you have to win some games you haven't in the past.
Not real Hoo fans? Most have been Hoos for 30+ years, many are in positions that they speak very regularly to other Hoo fans, these aren't Walmart fans I'm talking about. And I didn't say they wanted him fired, you implied that them not being happy means they want him fired, I can assure you they are hopeful that bring in a "real" HC will help guide London and hopefully fill in the gaps so he is successful after TOB leaves...and if this doesn't work and the product looks like it did last year, they are ready to cut bait after his 4th season...as you all should be.
and -WTF- else is Oliver supposed to say? I mean really? Even if he does actually mean what he says there is nothing else ha can say.
I know a lot of people that are fans that just don;t follow the teams as closely as anyone here would. To the "normal" fan, a changing in the staff and a bad season last year signals "hot seat." Anyone "in the know" understands that the big season is 2014. That's a make or break year and I agree that it needs to be. I'm all about giving any coach 5 years unless there is simply no hope for improvement (see Dave Leitao.) That's just not the case with the football program. The talent level has increased substantially since 2009. Now it's "what can you do with them."
