16. Mike Scott, Virginia, senior – Scott missed the final 21 games of last season because of an ankle injury. But before that he was averaging 15.9 points and 10.2 rebounds as one of the few bright spots for the rebuilding Cavaliers. The NCAA granted Scott a medical redshirt.

ACC Sports Journal's Ask a Blogger: Virginia Spring Football

The ACC Sports Journal's Jim Young wanted to get the inside scoop on Virginia football and how the team is looking coming out of spring practice (and perhaps most importantly, give himself a leg up on his college fantasy football league). We answered a few questions for him -- check it out.

This really doesn't have much to do with anything, except to prove that there really IS a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, and that pot of gold is the dome of the Rotunda at the University of Virginia. This picture was taken during the rainout of the game against VCU last week, courtesy of Virginia fan John Deal by way of VAF Associate Director Alex Inman. He calls it, "Omaha Omen."

Teammates Vote to Suspend Shamel and Rhamel Bratton

The Washington Post is reporting that both Shamel and Rhamel Bratton have been suspended by their own teammates. According to the Washington Post, sources close to the situation say that their teammates have voted to suspend Shamel for the rest of the season, and to suspend Rhamel indefinitely. Shamel has already been suspended twice this season, while Rhamel was suspended once. According to the source, both brothers had been suspended during the Stony Brook game for a violation of the team's very strict alcohol policies. From the above-linked article: "According to individuals with knowledge of the situation, the Brattons made it well known they never intended to follow the alcohol policy and that they tried to get other players to vote to change the policy, but were unsuccessful. The same sources also said the Brattons traveled to Stony Brook — which is about a 40-minute drive from their home town of Huntington Station, N.Y. — with their gear and offered to play despite their suspensions. After the Brattons’ older brother learned they would be held out of the game, he confronted Starsia, sources said." No official statement has been released by the University. We will keep you updated as it comes out, which is expected to be some time today.

There's some real photoshop talent out there. Today's tip of the hat goes to whoever made this awesome cover for NCAA Football 2012, featuring UVa's own Chase Minnifield. What other talent is out there?

George Huguely Indicted on Six Charges in Murder Case of Yeardley Love

The SB Nation DC site put up a post today regarding the murder case of Yeardley Love, allegedly by former UVA lacrosse player George Huguely. We all know the background story to this already. Among the charges are felony murder, robbery, burglary, statutory burglary and grand larceny. Because the charge is felony, and not capital, murder, capital punishment is not on the table. According to reports, the trial is scheduled to begin in February of 2012. We will provide periodic updates on this case here on Streaking the Lawn, but do not expect too much comment from us on this. This is a case that affects many of our current and former players, if not directly on a legal level, certainly on a personal one. Given that this site is intended to celebrate the successes of our programs and analyze its shortcomings, I am making an editorial decision not to provide round-the-clock coverage on this now-tangential matter. Both teams are ranked in the top ten. Both teams are about to enter into ACC Tournament play. Both teams have Tewaaraton Award nominees (Steele Stanwick and Liz Downs). Both teams are expected to make a splash in the post-season. Let's focus on these, and let the players focus on the games in front of them.

Early ESPN Bracketology

In an impressive show of way-too-earlymanship, Joe Lunardi released his spring bracketology. With a boatload of talent returning to UNC, it's hard to see them as anything other than a No. 1 seed. But what's applicable here, though, is that he has Virginia at a No. 12 seed, playing UAB to get into the tournament. Also coming in for the ACC is Duke as a 2-seed, Virginia Tech as a 6-seed, Clemson as an 8-seed, Florida State as a 10-seed and Miami as an 11-seed. That's 7 for the ACC. Too generous?

Marc Verica (UVA) works out for the Packers

Marc Verica, the starting quarterback for the 2010 Virginia Cavaliers, has reportedly worked out for the Green Bay Packers. Though he went through streaks of brilliant and mediocre play, he should make a valuable addition to a quarterback depth chart, especially working underneath the supremely talented Aaron Rodgers and Matt Flynn.

Men’s rowing was never a varsity sport at Virginia.... At Virginia, the men’s team doesn’t spend one minute hoping that we’ll be granted varsity status. Our job is to create the best program we can.

--Virginia Men's Rowing Head Coach Frank Biller Considering the men finished as the top non-Varsity program at the Head of the Charles in the Men's Collegiate Eights division, fourth overall, I'd say he's doing a pretty good job. The team though, was still disappointed, wanting to finish in the top three. Read more from this interview with Coach Biller on RowingRelated. Hat tip to @RyBitz.
