It is unrealistic to expect UVA teams to seriously contend for Natty's,

in all sports. Most of our Our sports teams (except FB and a few others) have been consistently better than almost all other ACC schools. IMO We have very little to complain about. Some seem to want Gelnovatch fired, but his 22 year record at UVA is off the charts good. There is absolutely no rational reason for UVA to be better than the other ACC schools at sports and due to our higher academic requirements we probably should be worse. . Virtually all ACC schools give the maximum scholarships allowed by the NCAA.

I am thrilled with the success of UVA sports over the last 10 to 15+ years. As an old timer I can state for certain that this is a recent phenomenon. We used to (1950's through1990's or so) pretty much suck at all sports, except men's LAX and for about 5 years men's soccer with Bruce Arena and 4 years of Men's BB mostly thanks to Ralph Sampson.

Heck even FB is getting better after a dismal last 10 or so years. We did have the 8 or 9 good Welsh years with those 7/8 wins, but I do not think we ever finished in the top 10 or even the top 15.
