2012 Virginia Football: Cavaliers vs. Richmond Spiders Preview and Game Thread

Opening kickoff here at Scott Stadium! Hope you were able to join us in Charlottesville at the big STL Opening Kickoff Tailgate (and thanks again to Maarten's for making it all possible), but now it's time to get down to business. It's what we spent the last three months yearning for (except for a two-week reprieve during the Olympics), and to see what Coach London, Michael Rocco and company have in store.

What: Virginia Cavaliers (0-0) vs. Richmond Spiders (0-0)

Time: 3:00 p.m.
Date: Saturday, September 1, 2012
Place: Scott Stadium
TV: RSN, CSN-Mid Atlantic
Radio: Virginia Sports Radio Network

Spread: None.
Last Meeting: 2010: Virginia 34, Richmond 13
Series:UVA 26-2-2

To be completely frank and at the risk of jinxing and ruining everything, there is nothing to be concerned about today. Virginia should smoke Richmond, who is under the direction of a new head coach, Danny Rocco, uncle of UVA quarterback MIchael Rocco.

Meanwhile, here's a fun fact for you -- Virginia is one of just 16 schools who start 2012 with the same nine assistants as in 2011 (thanks for that fun fact, media guide).

Our actual preview of the game came out Thursday. Leave your pre-, in- and post-game thoughts here, and welcome back, college football!
