2014's Mixed Metaphor!

In 2009, the mixed metaphor was football and boxing, with the wildly popular and successful Fight Card series.

In 2010, the mixed metaphor was football and horse racing, with the unbelievably awesome Trifecta Box series.

In 2011, the mixed metaphor was football and Monopoly, with the incredible and inspiring Monopoly Properties series.

In 2012, the mixed metaphor was football and bowling (and burgers), with the fantastic and fabulous Bowling & Burgers series.

In 2013, the mixed metaphor was football and movies, with the awful and half-assed (and incomplete) Movies I Love series.

In 2014, we’re attempting more of a Wahooze collaboration; more of a shared effort. This upcoming season, we’re anticipating that many (most? ALL?) Hoofans will be driven to drink heavily. As such, the obvious metaphor is the one that originally put the “ooze” in Wahooze. It’s booze! The mixed metaphor is football and booze!

Nailed it. We fucking nailed it.

Anyway, we’re not sure what the format will look like, but rest easy knowing there will be a format of some sort (or not, probably not). Plus comments from all three of us on each position group. PLUS, a release schedule! We are hijacking your entire month of August, people.

8/6 - Quarterbacks

8/8 - Running Backs

8/11 - Wide Receivers

8/13 - Tight Ends

8/15 - Offensive Line

8/18 - Defensive Line

8/20 - Linebackers

8/22 - Secondary

8/25 - Coaches

8/27 - The 2014 Schedule

Pop open the flask, Hoofans. Take a drink, deep and good.

Cheers, bitches.

Sabbatical, OVER

My wounds are licked.  My heart, no longer black.

I'll be back to full-blast blogging, sometime in the next week or so.

I promised I'd get out of the business of promising posts, but get ready for...

Favorite Seasons Ranking -- Where does 2013-14 Basketball and 2014 Baseball fit in my all-time rankings?

Slicing the 200 Minute Pie -- For the 2014-15 basketball season.  Spoiler: Devon Hall enthusiasts should prepare to be disappointed.

ACC Relegation FTMF Win (my solution to the ACC's football scheduling problem) -- You've maybe seen an English Premier League-style relegation system for the ACC floated before, but not like this.

2014 Football Preview! -- Spoiler: It ends with us hiring Pete Lembo.  See the sidebar.

And the master stroke...


Stay tuned to this space, Wahooze Nation.

To tide you over, handy links to old posts!

WahoozeCast - July, 17th

We're back again this summer to fill your ears with delightful UVA-sports-related musings. We really go off the deep end in this one - as there's not actually a whole lot to talk about these days. If you're in the mood for a podcast that discusses Lacrosse dads, NBA summer league playoff structure, international poverty, Tinder, and baby advice, well then look no further than below:

Leave comments. Tinder tagline ideas or otherwise.

Astro-Matic Baseball

This has nothing to do with Virginia sports (other than Derek Fisher), but I thought it was an awesome read from SI's Ben Reiter, and wanted to share.

Baseball nerds, dive in!!
