What has the BOV not embraced with regard to sports over the...


past 16 years??!!! They have approved EVERY facility building/expansion request if the baseline criteria has been met. Do you see any coaches leaving UVA for another school because their sport is being under-funded??!! NO!!!

I just don't see a major see change with regard to the leadership in support of athletics. Some act as if there is some magic dust going to be sprinkled over football because we have a new President/AD. There is no flip of the switch solution!! Just STOP with this absurd perspective!!

We need the right coach for our culture/values in every sport. In that regard, Littlepage got it right with most of our sports over his tenure. Maybe we have it, maybe we don't with Mendenhall. But to think there needs to be some type of major transformation with a new AD for an athletics dept. that has won 76 ACC titles and 13 national championships since the early '00s is absurd. Just build on what has been accomplished, retool when necessary, and reconstruct those programs that have not met expectations.
