There is nothing fun about losing. There is certainly nothing fun about losing to Duke. And it's downright blood-boiling to lose to Duke four times in five years.
There is no silver lining in yesterday's loss, but following the Twittersphere at least provided for some memorable occasions. The following are just some of the
highlights lowlights from following the #UVA hash tag on Saturday.
When even the AP writer criticizes the officiating (and commentating) of the game, there's something to think about there.
Phillip Sims's first start as a Cavalier didn't quite produce the results fans were looking for, and the quarterback controversy appears to be far from over.
GAME MANAGEMENT. That is why Rocco was the QB to start the season. Sims left a 1st down on the table there. #UVA— Ben (@The_Superhoo) October 6, 2012
I see no scenario where Head Coach Mike London's job is in any serious jeopardy, but at least a handful of fans saw that, or something about the coaching staff, as the primary issue.
I’m not in the habit of calling for jobs but #UVa needs some changes. Too much talent to be this poor in various aspects.— Brad Franklin (@Cavs_Corner) October 6, 2012
#UVa OC Bill Lazor: "Personally, there's no doubt in my mind that was my fault...— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) October 6, 2012
Of course, many fast forwarded to think about Virginia Tech as well.
Pretty much everyone had their own way of coping after the loss.
Hey remember that time #UVA made me really happy? Yeah, I don't either.— Chip Tamplin (@chizrocker88) October 6, 2012
I don't even think #UVa BASKETBALL would lose to Duke by 25 right now.I am stunned.Completely stunned.— Brian (@sportsmatters) October 6, 2012
#UVA football makes me so incredibly sad.One of the most, if not the most, underachieving programs in America.Tony Bennett, save me— Hampton Conly (@HooDat06) October 6, 2012
It'd be hilarious if #UVA football led me to being an alcoholic. I'm not ruling it out. Odds will be at..25:1.— Ozzie Roach (@OzzieR89) October 7, 2012
But that's not to say that everyone was negative after the game. There are the devout few.
#UVa is SO much better than they're playing today. They have crumbled at every key point in the game.— Mitchell Phelan (@MDPhelan) October 6, 2012
