Virginia is a top state for talent pretty much every year outside of GA, CA, OH, FL, and TX... so why do they suck every single year?
Because they don't have a top coaching/recruiting staff capable of fighting off the traditional powers.
London sucks, they have a terrible administration and overall they care more about academics than sports
The school as a whole is top 5 worst colleges I have ever been to, and I have seen just about all the main ones on the east coast south of New Jersey
Its simply not a good atmosphere at all
Charlottesville blows, terrible little city if you can even call it that
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
I pretty much hate everything about UVA sports but you're wrong about the University. Fantastic school and C-Ville is one of the best small towns in the country.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who realizes this.

you are dead wrong, I had friends who lived there and that place is ghetto as hell and just awful
You don't have a clue hot sauce
Ten bucks says you spent very little time there and didn't wander off the campus very much
Charlottesville sucks total asshole my friend
I know it is the douchiest school in the country... but how could it be any worse than Blacksburg?
I used to go at least once every year and have stayed for weeks at a time for camps. I've seen the whole campus and downtown. It's a great place with a ton of culture and some of the best restaurants I've been at. It's a townie/hippie place (outside of students), but that's what makes it great.
The people are better in Blacksburg but yeah in terms of college life both are terrible imo
But Blacksburg is much better, and it has radford so you get twice the party atmosphere
JMU is by far the best college in VA, and really the only one worth visiting if you are an outsider looking for hot women and a good time
everything else in this state sucks hard
I agree the food is good but who cares, that gets old after a week or two
Its not a great place, you are one of the first people I have ever heard of that says good things
In fact I don't know anybody that likes that place, and I have friends that went to school there and just lived there in general
Terrible place, you couldn't pay me to go back
UVA is the best school in the state(Academically) Can't say much more for UVA.
They're just natural losers. Its in their blood.
Look up any list of top college towns and campuses and UVA is on it. Most people think the total opposite of what you do.
The Mike Vicks of Virginia are not gonna go to UVA
Totally agree with that, UVA definitely has a certain culture and type of kid that it attracts and most top football prospects don't fit that build.
I have a cousin who's a freshman at UVA. I've never been there but some of her friends that pop up in pictures in my newsfeed are fine as hell.
It's a school with 20,000 people. Every big school in the country has hot girls.
Every school has some, but go there and walk around
For every fine chick you will bump into 35 asians dudes and 30 white dudes with 4 neon colored polo's on with each collar popped for some reason
What's with the UVA threads today?
We have fantastic academics, beautiful campus, great location
We don't have a rabid fan base and academics probably means we pass on some recruits, but we were ranked #1 once (20 years ago but still)..dunno hard to analyze, but I can tell you our admin had kot been all in with football for many years
For the most part that is true but they just got SMoke Mizell and have signed others like Ahmed Brooks
UVA gets some thugs every now and then, they certainly have no problem getting them into school which I always find hilarious
It was bound to happen
The new rankings are being paid attention to now and its put VA on the map, now recruitniks from all over are wondering why VA kids don't stay in state most of the time
I'd get used to it cause this is just the beginning
Cause they aint got WEST in front they name
I'm sure that's it
It's like Ole Miss but smart and apparently top football prospects fit that build.
True, their hick population is actually under 90%.
Problems started when the fan base got tired of George Welsh winning 7 to 8 games a year. Everyone felt they could do better and wished the AD would do something. A classic case of "beware what you wish for"....enter Al Groh....prick extraordinaire. He hit the ground running with pretty highly ranked recruiting classes but managed to suck at coaching and pissed off many of the in-state HS coaches. He got the boot...enter Mike London. Great recruiter.....but not a very good coach IMO. This is Uva football in a nutshell over the past 10 to 15 years.
