There isn't really much to say here. This year in all likelihood is going to be a trainwreck. We could very well be 2-4 or even 1-5 heading into the first bye week. If that's the case, that should be the weekend the hammer drops on Mike London.

  1. I want to comment here on something I've seen around twitter/boards. It's a though summed up well with this tweet:

    "Looking at the sked based on last year and who's coming back... Should #UVa make a bowl in '14, Mike London would deserve COY consideration."

    To this I reply: Hellllllllllllllllllllllllllll no.

    The only reasoning for this is because he'd be taking a 2 win team and then winning 6 games against a admittedly-difficult schedule. But this completely ignores the fact that COACHING is the reason we were a 2 win team last year. He's not inheriting it. Coaching took a team with 6/7 win talent and won 2 games. In his 5th year of the program, no matter the schedule, 6/7 wins should be the average minimum expectation.

    Were we to win 6 wins and make a bowl next season, then Mike London will have done an adequate job.
