As July quickly ticks away – the ACC Football Kickoff media event is next week! – the start of a new Virginia sports year inches closer. On the football and men’s basketball front, that’s led to a blend of conversations this week about the two sports.
On the football side, the latest piece from Jeff White on cornerback Josh Hayes plus a pair of football commitments were the top new items late in the week (check those out here, here, and here), but there have been several threads during the week that drew some attention. Check out these topics:
- This article lists UVA as one of the early users of this Robotic QB. Link. ~ patit hoo
- All 130 FBS QBs rated. ~ HowieT3
- Recruiting … It’s not where you rank now. It’s more important where you rank with Bronco on signing day! ~ Covhoo2
- Historically, how have our scholarship kickers done vs walk-ons? ~ Hoos in da house
Meanwhile, conversations on the men’s basketball side have been lively this past week. Late on Friday, a thread on men’s lacrosse player Cole Kastner joining the hoops team began to pick up steam. At 6’7” and 200 pounds, Kastner is an interesting add to a roster that seems to need insurance at the very least for that combo forward type role that gives Tony Bennett versatility options. That thread is here.
That’s far from the only hot topic for the week, though. Give a look to these threads:
- Been gone from board a while, did Clark say something about coming back for 5th year? ~ UVAFISH24
- Bobi Klintman – curious where he is perceived to be in his recruiting process and where we stand? ~ ReasFordHoo
- For those of you who are skeptical of Jayden Gardner’s potential impact, I would encourage you to listen to
- Kelvin Sampson’s comments after Gardner shredded his team last year. ~ alleyoop hoo
- The metamorphosis to “Reckless Abandon” Tobey is complete! ~ HooGuy
- The Ringer Mock Draft – Trey Murphy @ #27 to Brooklyn. ~ gohoos_224
- I think Taine Murray will be a highlight. ~ Cavalier_fan
- So, would have McKoy been a starter at UVa if he stayed? ~ D.C. Scott
That’s a lot of message board chatter for a summer week. To help you keep passing the time until kickoff, check out the weekly fan selections too!
