My Thoughts on Football Scheduling

Thanks for sharing this, Anonymous!  It sums things up pretty perfectly.


I'm going into this season just like I go to the doctor to get a Tetanus shot. I know it'll hurt, but I also know that once the pain is over I'll be healthier because of it.


Here's the 2015 schedule our new coach will be facing:

@ UCLA
Notre Dame
Boise State
William & Mary
Duke
Georgia Tech
Syracuse
Virginia Tech
@ Louisville
@ Miami
@ North Carolina
@ Pittsburgh

I don't know if there's six winnable games there, unless we somehow find a QB (Turtle?) and the defense gets - and stays - solid. Who knows? Competent coaching can go a long way, and our roster is not devoid of talent.

2016:
Richmond
@ Oregon
@ UConn
Central Michigan
Louisville
Miami
North Carolina
Pittsburgh
@ Duke
@ Georgia Tech
@ Wake Forest
@ Virginia Tech

A bowl game seems pretty possible after the 2016 season. Realistically, we'll need to find the patience to wait at least that long, maybe into 2017.

For gits and shiggles, 2017:
William @ Mary
Stanford
UConn
@ Boise State
Duke
Georgia Tech
Virginia Tech
@ Louisville
@ Miami
@ North Carolina
@ Pittsburgh

Not sure who our Atlantic cross-over opponent will be that season, but we know it's a home game and we know it won't be WF, FSU, Syracuse, or Clemson. So... NC State or Boston College?

God, these OOC schedules suck! UCLA, Stanford, Boise, Oregon, BYU... WHY, WHY, WHY??? UConn makes sense, but the rest is freaking idiotic. We should be scheduling AAC schools, C*USA schools, MAC schools, Sun Belt schools, Kansas, Iowa State, Purdue, Indiana, Illinois (we do play them in '21 and '22), Army, Navy, Kentucky, Vandy, and maybe Ole Miss/Miss. St. Don't try to play big boy football until you're at least approaching adolescence as a football program. We're a toddler who got into dad's liquor cabinet right now. Wobbly and vomiting.

I mean, I can understand scheduling one marquee OOC game each season. "Marquee" being, like, Tennessee. Not a guaranteed loss like against Oregon or Stanford.

GWWAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHH!

    1. How do you define support the team? If you mean root for them to win every time they play, we all do. If you mean wanting what's best for the program, getting rid of a coach who can't call timeouts, forgets to recruit offensive lineman, can't settle on a quarterback, and has the sideline demeanor of a 7 year old losing in Madden, is the best move to make. If Mike London by some miracle becomes Nick Saban and turns the ship around, of course we are going to support him. But please point me to the evidence that says that is going to happen. I'll wait.

      Also if you are going say Andrew Brown or Quin Blanding you can think again. They don't play guard, center, or quarterback.

  2. It is clear that you do not know me. I can't speak for them, but Mike and Pierce might be concerned about attracting and pleasing new readers. I can tell you without any uncertainty that I am not. I write and maintain this blog for two reasons: 1) for my friends, and 2) for myself. If other UVA fans or sports fans visit Wahooze and see something they like, then great! But if not, keep looking for the rah-rah pollyanna pie-in-the-sky site that will spew whatever garbage it is you want or need to hear.

    In closing, go fuck yourself.

  4. Junior must have gotten on mom and dad's computer. Next time you decide to come on the blog and trash the host, please feel free to use your name tough guy, and learn to use spell check and the shift key. Go back to your cartoons and let the adults talk now.
