While there is of course similarity....


to a certain percentage, there is no doubt that more undergrads go to Gobbler world now with an interest in attending football games and generally following the sport. For what ever reason we have less of these kids. Throw in the fact that a Gobbler class is three times larger than a Virginia class ( 1st years,etc) and we are in a hole from the get go
