Fan Friday: Big Weekend At UVA

It’s a big weekend for Virginia athletics as multiple teams are in action on Grounds. That includes the Saturday night showdown with top 10 Notre Dame at Scott Stadium, the start of the women’s soccer team’s NCAA Tournament at Klockner Stadium, and game two for the men’s basketball team at the John Paul Jones Arena.

With those three sports at the forefront for now, here are some repetitive questions we’ve seen on the message boards.

  • Will Brennan Armstrong play? – UVA’s quarterback got injured before a bye week so it’s been almost two weeks of speculation to see the answer in what likely comes down to a “game day decision.”
  • Can anything be done by or for the Virginia defense to improve the football team’s chances in the final three games? – A season-long roller coaster ride for the defense continues and the debate does too.
  • Will anyone else reach a milestone mark? – Armstrong set the school’s single season passing yards record at BYU. Some others are within shouting distance of some individual marks too – Dontayvion Wicks needs just 28 yards to join a short list of 1,000-yard receivers at UVA and if he combines that with 1 touchdown, he’ll join only Herman Moore and Billy McMullen in the 1K-10 club; Jelani Woods needs 3 touchdown catches to tie Heath Miller’s single-season mark of 9 by a tight end; Billy Kemp IV needs 2 catches to pass Kris Burd for fourth on the all-time receptions list.
  • For the Cavalier men’s basketball team, was the season-opening loss to Navy a hiccup or a harbinger of a tough season ahead?
  • How can Reece Beekman and Kihei Clark be more effective together or should they play split minutes more?
  • Will any of the three M’s get more run? – Taine Murray, Carson McCorkle, and Igor Milicic saw minimal or no minutes in the opener.
  • Does the Virginia women’s soccer team’s journey lead to the College Cup and a shot at a title?

Tight end Jelani has 6 touchdown catches in the eight games he’s played this season, which is tied for second by a tight end in program history behind only Heath Miller’s 2002 season with 9.
