Dear Steve Fairchild

You don't know me, but you might not really get to know anyone at UVA at the rate you are going. I just thought I'd leave a few suggestions here for you.




That's all. I hope you have a great day dreaming up different formations from which to run bubble screens and running back swing passes. Most people think multiple plays out of one set makes an offense dynamic, but you're far too forward thinking, you know the real secrets of playcalling.

  1. Although I agree with you, I think many people fail to realize that he is calling these plays based on the players and talent we have. He knows David cannot stretch the field vertically therefore he is doing everything he can to work around that with these bullshit screens. He cannot help how inept the offensive line is so he is doing everything he can to call plays that don't depend on the line as much. Im not saying Fairchild is not the problem at all, but I think people don't understand how little options he has based on our players. I love this blog and I look forward to reading posts everyday. I am sixteen and have been attending every game since I was a little kid so you obviously have more experience and knowledge of this program than I do but it is amazing how one game completely changes peoples opinions. Remember in 2011, we had a bad loss to Southern Miss and and an ugly win vs Idaho. After these games everyone was calling for London's head but then we ripped off many wins and everyone loved him. Im just saying that don't judge this season off of one game. It really frustrates me how ignorant our fans are being (especially on thesabre message boards). I guarantee that if we get this offense together and pull off wins that everyone will love London again. Im not saying this will happen but I will not be the least surprised that we still make a bowl. I have not given up on London yet. We all knew this new coaching staff and new quarterback was going to be a process that doesn't generate immediate results. I have full confidence in our team and I believe this could be another season like 2011. Thanks for the blog and keep up the posts!!!

  2. Link the Dom Terrell highlights from that same Miami game. I would like to see Scott more, but haven't given up on Terrell even after Pitt. He looked so composed and ready to break one on returns up until this game.

    1. Oh my god, dude. How do you pie-in-the-sky optimists do it? I really am jealous.

    2. I'm not optimistic about the offense itself at all. Just think Terrell is the best option at PR based off of everything even with his ridiculous gaffe Saturday.

    3. Full disclosure: I am a Hokie alum but my wife is a UVA fan so I do go to a lot of UVA games and will cheer for UVA against most other teams. I agree completely with Kendall on this one. Terrell is terrible. Okay you want to forgive the ridiculous gaffe on the punt return... I guess you forgive the same gaffe that occurred on his next attempt on the KO return. Not to mention the guy cost countless yards afterwards by not attempting to fair catch punts. I get it, the guy is a good athlete and he did have a great Miami game, but he can't catch, and he has made these same issues catching and on ST for three years. His role should be limited to taking handoffs on reverses and maybe taking direct snaps as a wild cat change up guy. If he is seriously UVA's best option, then I would recommend lining up 11 on the line and trying to block the punt every time.
