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.
In a stunning and brutal display of support last Wednesday, frantic Virginia fans rushed the court at John Paul Jones Arena, swarmed the Duke men's basketball team, and pounded the ever-living shit out them.
It looks as if SuperPrep All-American Dominique Terrell from Osbourn High School in Manassas is headed to Virginia.
As one of my best sources put it: "He’s staying close to home and it’s not Blacksburg or Morgantown."
In other developments from UVa’s recruiting weekend, a good source advises me that the Cavaliers have moved into the top two for the state’s No. 1-rated prospect, Hermitage linebacker Curtis Grant.
Dear UVa Students:
I'm excited to have you back from winter break! We have seven ACC home games during the spring semester starting with Georgia Tech Saturday at noon at JPJ. Your presence plays such an important role in our home court advantage. Our players feed off your energy and enthusiasm!
Over 1,000 student tickets remain for both the game against Ga. Tech on Saturday and the home game against Maryland on Thursday, Jan. 27. Student tickets for both of these games are in the claim on-demand phase. All you have to do is log on to your account at uvashots.com and claim and print a ticket.
You're a big part of our effort to build the Virginia men's basketball program. Please forward this to a friend who may not be aware of how to claim student tickets.
Thank you for your support and I look forward to seeing you and hearing you at JPJ on Saturday afternoon!

A player who already has carte blanche to be creative and explosive in Charlottesville, he will now be playing in a league that sells itself on these qualities. Explosive first step from up top, unmatched in this class.
Virginia cornerback Chase Minnifield (Lexingon, KY) was given an honorable mention in SI.com's 2010 All-America team, it was announced on Tuesday. Minnifield, a junior, finished the season with six interceptions, ranking second in the ACC and sixth nationally. He finished eighth on the team with 48 tackles this season.
CO-OFFENSIVE LINEMAN - Oday Aboushi, Virginia, OT, So., 6-6, 295, Staten Island, N.Y. (Xaverian) Aboushi started his first contest for the Cavaliers, leading the offensive line with seven pancake blocks. He helped Virginia rush for 205 yards after the Cavaliers only topped the 200-yard rushing total once in 2009. Virginia averaged 5.9 yards per rush. Aboushi was part of an offensive line that allowed just one sack Saturday after surrendering 41 in 2009.
