    Virginia Cavalier Football
    There once was a time where Virginia was well known for their football program, having good NFL players come from this academic prestigious school such as, Tiki Barber, Matt Schaub, and Heath Miller. The Cavaliers were a good football team in the past no doubt but they have fallen off the map for some time. Mike London came to coach and he had a good first season but the Cavalier fans were still upset about that 38-0 loss to Virginia Tech. They let London go and brought back an old friend a guy nicknamed Cougs. He was once with the Cavaliers but he needed a break. He bought the Cavaliers back to top shape even winning an ACC championship over there. He is back to take the team back to their winning ways and destroy coach Hokie Effect and his horrendous Hokie Squad.

    As the fans walked into Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, Virginia they knew it was going to be a live atmosphere. Taking on the #2 USC Trojans for their first game of the season the Cavaliers knew they had something to prove. As fans still crowded the stadium the cameras went inside the Cavalier locker room and saw coach Cougs giving his team a pre-game speech. "Guys, we worked our asses off all offseason, practiced our hearts out and all we left on our practice field was our sweat, and blood. We can take on any team in the FBS, you guys have nothing but talent and god damn it, we are going to go prove it to the world!" The team then stood up and went crazy and rushed out the locker room with coach Cougs right behind them. The crowd erupted when the Cavaliers came out the locker room and the sun shined off their helmets as coach Cougs said to himself "thank god it's football season." Both coaches went to the middle of the field to shake hands and the team captains went out for the coin toss. The USC Trojans loss the toss but the Cavaliers chose to kick off. Both team captains rushed back to their sideline, anxious to start the game. The Cavaliers kicked off and there was no chance for a return, it was a touchback. The USC Trojans looked like an NFL team compared to the Cavaliers having a top notch offense. On the Trojans third play of the game they threw a pick right to Demetrius Nicholson who took it back for a touchdown. The crowd erupted and the team gathered around him to celebrate the phenomenal play that just took place and the Cavaliers made the PAT to make it 7-0 early. On USC's next possession the Cavaliers played great defense and forced them to punt the ball away. Now it was time for Virginia's offense to show the Trojans that they weren't no cupcake team and they showed up. Perry Jones, and Philip Sims were able to drive down the field without a problem but Sims tried to force a throw into a small window and it was picked off and returned for 64 yards for a Trojan touchdown. Coach Cougs just told him to relax we will get those points back. As the Cavaliers had a drive that pretty much ate up the rest of the first quarter they managed to get a field goal to make it 10-7. In the second quarter the Cavalier defense played stellar defense. Not giving up any touchdowns, but they sure had a hard time stopping the run. USC drove down the field and kicked a field goal and made it 10-10. USC kicked off and Demetrius Nicholson took off from deep in his endzone and made a sharp cut to his left and a USC defender went to the ground which allowed Nicholson to have a good return before he was pushed out of bounds. The crowd was excited to see how their Cavaliers were playing #2 USC. On this drive it was all about Sims. He picked apart the USC secondary like they were a junior varsity high school squad. It set up a Zack Swanson 2 yard TD run to put the Cavaliers up 17-10. The Trojans came out after that drive and they didn't have an answer and was forced to punt. The Cavaliers went to a balanced attack and man they had the Trojans on their heels. When Sims would see the LB's way off the line he would audible to a run play and Perry Jones would work his magic. The Cavaliers were on the six yard line when Sims found wide open tight end Colter Phillips for a touchdown pass which put the Cavaliers up 24-10 with :45 seconds left in the first half. The crowd was really into this game. But the Trojans decided to shut them up and ran a great 2 minute drill but they were only able to put up 3 points and the Cavaliers went into the locker room with a 24-13 lead. In the locker room coach Cougs told his team this "You guys are doing a hell of a job out there. You guys are playing with heart, defense keep doing what your doing, offense keep doing what your doing. We are going with a conservative approach this half and I want you to keep this lead." The Cavaliers went out in the second half and got the ball. The drove down the field but they weren't able to score a touchdown and settled for a field goal which put them up 27-13. The USC coaching staff were scratching their heads they didn't know what was going on. But the Trojans got the ball back and they went down and scored easily, which left coach Cougs with a dazed look on his face. The Trojans were only down one score now. The Cavaliers led going into the 4th quarter 27-20. The Cavaliers know they needed to score a touchdown this drive but just couldn't find the endzone and they kicked a field goal to go up 30-20. USC's next drive they meant serious business. For some reason the Cavaliers just couldn't wrap up and the Trojans were gaining 10+ yds a run each time. Coach Cougs told them to wrap up constantly but nothing, the Trojans ran the ball down the Cavaliers throat for an easy score. The Cavaliers led 30-27 with 5:09 left in the game. The Trojans kicked it off which was a touchback. The Cavaliers knew they had to try and chew the clock or score a touchdown. So they handed it off to Perry Jones, who found a gaping hole to his left and he hit the hole fast, juked the Trojan LB out of his shoes and cut back to his right and then shook another defender and Perry Jones took it to the endzone on a 80 yard run the crowd went absolutely nuts after that run and coach Cougs couldn't believe it. The Cavaliers went up 37-27 with 4:56 left in the game. The Trojans then drove down the field to score with 2:44 left in the game but the Cavaliers held on to win their first game of the season 37-34.


    The Cavaliers outgained the Trojans in total offense 460-399, the Cavaliers ran the ball for 252 yards.

    Had a nice recap going until my smart self accidentally closed the fucking page. Time to shorten this.

    The Cavaliers defense had come to play in Atlanta. They were determined to shut down this option offense and they did. They only held Georgia Tech to 128 yards on 35 attempts. Now passing on the other hand, the Virginia secondary had problems stopping. Tevin Washington who isn't known for passing the ball threw for 231 yards. The Cavaliers offense seemed non-existant on the ground today. Perry Jones who ran for 221 yards against USC only racked up 129 yards on 20 carries but had 3 TD's. The Cavaliers aren't relying on sophomore transfer Philip Sims to carry the team as of yet. Give him one more season and you will see big things from him. The Cavaliers shut down the option and Georgia Tech only put up 28 points. Virginia blew them out the water beating the Yellow Jackets 49-28.

    The Cavaliers coming off of a long week traveled to Forth Worth to take on the TCU Horned Frogs in the first annual Big 12 vs ACC challenge. The Cavaliers came off of two big wins and are feeling very confident in themselves. Coach Cougs has been all smiles and enjoying his time with the Cavaliers as they continue to impress him game after game. The Horned Frogs felt like this could have been a big win and carry huge momentum into their season so they wanted this win bad. The Cavaliers entered the field in arms showing that they are one team. The two coaches ran to the middle of the field shook each others hands and went back to the sidelines. The team captains ran out for the coin toss, Virginia won the toss but decided to kick off. And the game was under way.

    1st quarter.

    TCU came out with Casey Pachall leading their offense. He is a very athletic QB and the Cavalier defense had no idea until he scrambled up and down the field and threw the ball without a problem. Coach Cougs couldn't believe it. It seemed like everything he tried he just couldn't contain him. The Horned Frogs first drive was incredible it made the Cavalier defense look like some Pee Wee team. But the defense stepped up once TCU stepped into the redzone. Pachall tried to lob a slant for a touchdown in 1on1 coverage but star CB, Demetrius Nicholson intercepted the pass and returned it to the 15 yard line. The Cavalier sideline erupted and the Horned Frog crowd was stunned in silence. The Cavalier offense came out onto the field to see what they could do. Phillip Sims came out knowing he was the captain of this offense and he needed a no mistake game to get this win. The Cavalier offense tried to get the run game going first but that didn't work out too well for them. On third down the Horned Frogs knew a pass was coming and the LB's dropped into deep zone coverage and Sims tried to force one into TE, Paul Freedman. It went right to a TCU defender he missed the interception it tipped off his hands and off the LB's helmet into Freedman, he caught it and ran for a 58 yard TD pass. The Cavaliers were surprised he followed that pass after that and were happy it happened that way. The Cavaliers took a 7-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.

    2nd Quarter.

    After that drive the Horned Frogs knew they had to respond to that score. The Horned Frogs knew they pretty much could do whatever they wanted with the Cavalier defense, they couldn't stop them the first drive and the struggles continued. Pachall threw a deep pass to Skye Dawson for a 62 yard touchdown pass. The game was tied at 7. Phillip Sims showed he could throw the ball accurately as he led his team down the field. Then Perry Jones took the handoff right up the gut for a 18 yard score. This put the Cavaliers up 14-7. The Horned Frogs didn't let that score bother them too much because they already knew in their mind they were going to tie it right up. And sure enough they did. Running back, Waylon James took it in for a 9 yard rushing touchdown after Pachall drove down the field once again. The Horned Frog crowd was loud and energetic after that drive. TCU kicked it off and it sailed deep into the endzone but Nicholson didn't care and decided to return it anyways and he noticed one of TCU's players were way out of their lane and cut it to the right and all that was left was the kicker and Nicholson easily outran him for a 104 yard kickoff return. The crowd was silent. Virginia went up 21-14 after that. The Horned Frogs had no problem driving down the field. Everything the Cavalier defense tried they just couldn't stop anything. Coach Cougs didn't know what to do. TCU got down to the 7 yard line and finally the Cavalier defense finally stepped up and sacked Pachall. Then the Horned Frogs were called for a holding call which didn't allow the Horned Frogs to try and get a touchdown. The Horned Frogs settled for a field goal. The Cavaliers had the lead 21-17 going into halftime.

    3rd Quarter.

    The Cavaliers got the ball after halftime and knew they had to add to their lead if they wanted to win. The Cavaliers drove down the field thanks to Phillip Sims. He was throwing the ball well this game and Cougs noticed it. But the Cavaliers weren't able to put up any points and kicked a field goal to go up 24-17. TCU thought they were going to be able and score easily again, but finally the Cavaliers got a break and a stop. The Cavaliers got the ball back and Phillip Sims hit Darius Jennings in stride for a 30 yard touchdown pass to put the Cavaliers up 31-17. The Horned Frogs were starting to wonder what was going on. The Horned Frogs found their stride and Pachall hit Carter for a 48 yard touchdown after he shook the whole Cavalier defense as coach Cougs just put his head down in shame. The score was 31-24 at the end of the 3rd quarter.

    4th Quarter.

    This quarter the Horned Frogs were plagued with the turnover bug. Pachall coughed up the ball one time and on a long good drive a Horned Frog receiver got creamed and he coughed up the ball. Pachall also threw a interception and the Cavaliers capitalized on all of those turnovers to get a big win in Forth Worth 45-24.

    The Cavaliers cruise to a 38-10 win over rival Maryland.

    The Cavaliers came into this game ranked #2 many people wondering are the Cavaliers overrated? But this game proved to some of the experts that we aren't. The defense was incredible this game holding Maryland to under 200 yards of total offense. Virginia was able to have a balanced attack but if it wasn't for a huge kick return for a touchdown by Demetrius Nicholson this game would of been a lot closer. The Cavaliers had their whole entire board at that game this was a HUGE win. Lets hope I pull in some recruits.
