CAN YOU FEEL IT?
CAN YOU HEAR IT?
CAN YOU TASTE IT?!
That my friends, is the calendar turning to September and another year of lackluster UVa football is upon us. As always, we turn our attention to the only way we can truly understand a football preview in this day and age: .gifs!
Every interception, fumble, bumbled snap, head scratching play and timeout calling reaction predicted right here before every game.
As the rest of your friends have fun thinking about how their team is going to go to a "bowl game" or might even compete for a "playoff birth," just remember how much fun you're going to have watching UVa football.
So now, we turn our attention to the Baby Blue Bruins of UCLA.
UCLA wins the flip and elects to receive. UVA IS LOSING ALREADY! LONDON CANT EVEN WIN A COIN TOSS! WHAT. THE. HELL.
Luckily, the Bruins have a freshman QB and Tenuta's defense is ready to go. THEY STOP THEM ON THE FIRST DRIVE!!!!!! And then you realize UVa's offense has to take the field.
And wouldn't you know it, a halfback toss, a dive, and a screen later, UVa is punting.
The Hoos' offense continues like this for a few more drives. Nobody understands why. The defense does their job, but can only hold back for so long. Ultimately the Bruins put 10 on the board and give UVa the ball with one last drive possibility in the half....
With only one timeout London is content with running the clock out and going to halftime down 10.
Before the 3rd quarter is over, the Bruins lead 24-0. It doesn't look pretty. Fortunately, Jim Mora has a heart and calls the dogs off to run the clock out. After 13 drives and 95 yards, UVa opens the playbook up and scores with 2 minutes left to cut the lead to 24-7. We're all really pleased at this point.
So, UVa covers but falls to 0-1 on the season. Go have a nice long look at yourself in the mirror and question why you do this to yourself every fall. Literally, every fall we do the same thing
And that's the way the cookie crumbles. We all knew it was coming, we just didn't really want to admit it. Luckily, most of us will live in VA and work with VPISU fans who will suffer a worse fate thanks to the Buckeyes, but should you work with some dick that went to a school that won a game and decides to ask you how UVa fared this weekend....
