    2012 Virginia Cavaliers Season Preview:

    2011 was a season to forget for Virginia football. An awful 2-10 overall record and 0-8 in the conference left the Cavaliers scrambling to find a new coach. Coach E was their answer. Coach E boasted a 20-6 overall record in two season at San Diego State University, finishing with bowl wins both seasons. "I am very excited to take over here at the University of Virginia," said Coach E, "I'm used to winning and plan on bringing winning back to Charlottesville." The Cavaliers will play 3 opponents ranked in the top 25 preseason poll.

    Offensive Preview:
    The Cavaliers plan on starting Sophomore Quarterback Michael Strauss overlast year's starter, Junior Ross Metheny. "Both these guys will get a chance to play, but right now we're going with Michael," said Coach E "His athleticism is going to bring a lot to the table for us." The work horse for the offense will undoubtedly be Junior HB Torrey Mack. Look for TE Colter Phillips to play an integral part of the Cavalier offense.

    Defensive Preview:
    The Cavaliers will be running a 3-3-5 defense this season, unlike the 4-3 Coach E ran at San Diego State. "I decided not to bring my defensive coordinator with me to Charlottesville," said Coach E, "He did a great job, but I personally felt this type of defense would benefit our athleticism, so I hired another one of my close friends for the job." Linebacker Steve Greer is the heart and soul of the Cavalier defense and will lead this squad who is looking to make a statement.

    Week 1 - vs. Northwestern
    Week 2 - vs. Texas Tech

    Virginia Fends Off Texas Tech at Home

    The Cavaliers are 2-0, matching last season's win total

    Virginia 49 vs. Texas Tech 25

    The Virginia Cavaliers were able to knock off Texas Tech and home this week in Charlottesville by a margin of 25 points. "I'm really proud of how our guys played today," said Coach E "They came out firing on all cylinders and never backed down."

    The Cavaliers forced a fumble on the opening kickoff which later resulted in a touchdown. They went on the score two more touchdowns in the first, giving them a 21-0 lead after the first quarter, and never looked back. "We were great on both sides of the ball, it makes things much easier as a coach when everyone is playing well."

    Cavalier HB Torrey Mack looks to be making a bid as a Heisman candidate. Mack carried the ball 23 times for 215 yards and 5 TD. QB Michael Strauss was 8-11 for 128 yards and 1 TD.

    "Texas Tech is going to be a very good team for years to come," said Coach E "They're athletic and have a heck of a good coach, I am excited to see what this rivalry will bring in years to come."

    The Cavaliers will play host to conference foe Wake Forest next week in hopes of a 3-0 start. This should be an interesting matchup since Wake Forest was one of the schools looking to hire Coach E before the season started.

    Virginia Defense Stellar in Win Over Conference Foe Wake Forest

    Virginia Cavaliers 63 vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons 10

    Virginia's Defense Forced 5 Turnovers, Including 3 Defensive Touchdowns Against Wake Forest

    Virginia put up 63 points on conference foe Wake Forest and improved its record to 3-0 on the season, topping their total 2 wins from a 2-10 season last year. "We're on a roll," said Coach E "The guys are buying in to the program and the results are definitely showing that."

    The Cavalier defense was impressive to say the least, causing 5 turnovers which included 3 defensive touchdowns. Linebacker Tucker Windle forced all 4 of the fumbles by Wake Forest players. On an even more impressive note, Linebacker Ausar Walcott had two fumble recoveries, one for a touchdown. Walcott also returned an interception for a touchdown.

    Virginia's offense was no slouch either. Halfback Torrey Mack had 3 scores giving him a combined 10 TD through 3 games and Quarterback Michael Strauss threw for 316 yards and a TD.

    "We're playing well on both ends of the ball and that's whats going to win us games," was the comment Coach E left with.

    The Cavaliers travel to Durham, North Carolina next week to face the Duke Blue Devils in hopes of a 4-0 start to the season and a 2-0 conference record.

    Cavaliers Narrowly Escape Terrapins For Their 5th Straight Win

    The Virginia Cavaliers Edged Maryland By 7 Point To Improve Their Record To 5-0

    Virginia Cavaliers 28 vs. Maryland Terrapins 21

    In a game that was close until the end, the Virginia Cavaliers came out of the 4th quarter with their 5th victory in a still undefeated season. "We made some mistakes today, but we also made some crucial plays that lead us to victory," said Coach E

    These crucial plays included a 4th and goal TD from the 2 yard line by HB Torrey Mack and a a minute later, a TD catch by TE Colter Phillips with :02 left in the first half. "Those two plays defined the game," said Coach E "We did what we needed to win, we are 5-0 and 3-0 in the conference, that's all that matters."

    The Virginia D was exceptional again, they have now forced 14 fumbles on the season, #1 in division 1 football. And have 4 defensive touchdowns.

    The Cavaliers will face a tough road ahead with Miami, North Carolina, TCU, Georgia Tech, and Virginia Tech all left on the schedule.

    However, the Virginia will be taking it one week at a time, and will put all their focus on traveling NC State this weekend. "This will definitely be our toughest challenge yet, but I know we are up to it."
