I have little to add, as it has mostly been stated below

Although, I think it is fair to say that Anae has attempted to construct an offense around the hand he was dealt. Clearly, we can see the type of QBs he is seeking. They took a chance on Benkert based upon Ruffin's recommendation. Benkert helped us get through Mendenhall's initial two years. We lost the grad transfer a year ago that could not qualify, but he was a dual-threat QB. With Perkins and Armstrong enrolling next month, I like the path we appear to be on with the offense. Unsure it will all come together in 2018, but believe we can continue to see progress with the ability of a QB who can make plays running or passing. Also, I choose not to operate from a "cookie-cutter" view of UVA football coaches unless there are some clear flaws in performance or background. Football at UVA is difficult to produce consistent success. Only one coach has achieved five consecutive winning seasons or more in the past 65 years. We've all looked around the landscape of college football with the coaching circus that has unfolded and I'm so delighted we were not a part of that mess. Within the next two years or so, it is going to play out with the football program. We made decent progress this year, and I hope 'Hoo fans can give the coaching staff the needed space to take the next step.
