Not a fan of international players. I know the ship has sailed but I miss

the days when the University "of Virginia" was actually filled with schoolboys and school girls from Virginia. That was the original idea. Same for every other state university. Not the whole team, necessarily, but the majority of the state schools' teams made up of players from that school's state. I'm always partial to the Bryant Stiths, Ralph Sampsons, Devon Halls, Justin Andersons & Curtis Staples on our team. I cheer for all players in a UVA uniform but I freely admit these Virginia players, from in-state, are first among equals to me. The further away from Virginia their home, the less excited I am about them. With a great coach like Tony Bennett, I think he could coach a team made up mostly Virginians to a championship.
With the recruiting racket being what it is, of course I know we have to recruit across the country & even across the oceans. I'm just lamenting how far we've all strayed from where we started.
