One quibble: London coached 6 seasons

Should have been 4, or maybe 3, or better yet none. BTW - I’m sure he’s a great man, but to your point, the end of the Groh era and the London era was brutal.

From Danny Neckel, StreakingTheLawn:

The loss to Virginia Tech brought his overall record at UVA to 27-46 (.369), which ranks 8th out of 9 coaches in Virginia history who have coached 40 or more games.

The .369 win % ranks 98th out of 119 FBS schools during his tenure, and only eight power conference programs have been worse.

London went 0-6 against rival Virginia Tech, to go along with 0-6 against North Carolina.

He was 14-34 in the ACC and 4-12 against ranked teams

Only 11 FBS schools have had more turnovers than UVA while London has been coach.

Since London has been coach, UVA football has spent a grand total of 1 week in the top #25. The following week the team lost 38-0 to VT.

London was the first coach in the history of college football to ever to win at Miami and Florida State in the same season.
