He did not. What Bronco said coming off of seasons of ...


2-10 (1-7) and 6-7 (3-5) in the summer of 2018 was:

"I want to play the worst power-five team that we can play,” Mendenhall said, emphasizing the word ‘worst’ as he said it. “That’s what the ACC requires, you have to play one other power-five [team in nonconference play].

“I want to find the worst one we can play, so we can get another win.”

Mendenhall opted to make an appearance at the UVa Board of Visitors meeting because he wanted to give a direct “State of the Program” address without, in his words, an unreliable press serving as an intermediary.

As it stands now, Virginia has several difficult nonconference games on its future schedule. The Cavaliers will finish a series with Indiana this season, and will play at Notre Dame in 2019, face Georgia in 2020 in Atlanta, and have games against BYU and Illinois the year after.

“I don’t want to go to Boise,” Mendenhall said, referring to a game at Boise State on last year’s schedule. “I don’t want to go to UCLA, I don’t want to go to Oregon. I don’t want to go back to BYU. I’d rather them come here and lose.”

ACC teams currently play eight conference games and four nonconference games. Included in those nonconference games is one mandatory game against a power-five conference opponent. That’s the game Mendenhall said he hopes is “the worst one we can play.”

In addition, for the three other games “I want to find three other games that are close and beatable.”

In addition to the ACC, the other power-five conferences are the Southeastern Conference, Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12.
