CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The hole is getting deeper.
There doesn't seem to be a sense of urgency for Virginia, no sign that that the Coastal Division title is on the line here in Scott Stadium. Instead, in the biggest game of the year for the Cavaliers, coach Mike London decided to put true freshman quarterback David Watford in the game for one play which he significantly overthrew. Inexplicable.
The chant of "Let's Go - Hokies" has taken over the stadium, and it doesn't seem like there is much of a home field advantage here anymore for Virginia. There certainly isn't one on the field, where Virginia Tech's defense continues to win the battle up front and has put continuous pressure on quarterback Michael Rocco. The Hokies are making the key stops on third downs, and Virginia's offense has gone nowhere in this game. They've got one quarter left to dethrone the defending ACC champs.
