The Virginia offensive line put together a collective effort last Saturday to help facilitate an upset over No. 12 Georgia Tech in a 24-21 decision. Overall, the Cavaliers accumulated an impressive 409 yards of total offense against Al Groh’s defense. The offensive line’s accomplishments as the game was ending were also quite remarkable. With just less than six minutes to play, Virginia had a field goal advantage over Georgia Tech, and it was the Cavalier offensive line that helped the team complete 14 plays for 68 yards to run out the clock.
Center Anthony Mihota led the charge, enabling Virginia’s running backs to register 274 total rushing yards, including two touchdowns. Last season, Mihota appeared in all 12 games for Virginia, which amounted to 856 total offensive plays. He was a pivotal component of an offensive line that went 13 consecutive quarters without allowing a sack. After a strong season his junior year, he has started in all six contests this year. Against the Yellow Jackets, he participated in every one of the Cavaliers’ 66 offensive plays in which he had nine knockdown blocks. It was for this impressive performance that he was awarded the ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week honor.
According to UVa offensive line coach Scott Wachenheim, the key to Mihota’s success this season has been that he has “gained confidence,” and been able to use that to “put together a solid year.”
Mihota is not the only player taking care of business on the offensive line. Although Luke Bowanko is only a sophomore and appeared in just five games for the Cavaliers during the 2010 season, he has transitioned smoothly into the starting position at right guard this year. Wachenheim stated that Bowanko “had no problem settling in with the other guys on the offensive line.” Further evaluation of Bowanko suggests why he has had such a solid season for Virginia.
“He is improving every week. He comes to work every day. He is a hard practice player. He prepares after practice too. He is a very coachable player. He does all the right things on and off the field,” Wachenheim said.
The game against Georgia Tech was Virginia’s biggest single-game rushing total since facing Duke in 2004 when the Cavaliers amassed 348 yards. Mihota, Bowanko, and the rest of the offensive linemen hope to help the team produce big numbers against NC State this week too. The Wolfpack, who Virginia has not faced since 2007, has allowed an average of more than 400 yards of total offense per game this season (412.2, 9th in ACC).

- Victory Christian Academy (Lakeland, FL) has won five straight and now stands at 5-2 on the season. Demeitre Brim scored three times, including two touchdown passes and one 65-yard scoring run, in guiding the Storm to a 53-32 victory over Orlando Christian this past week.

Linebacker Steve Greer, who has started all five games for Virginia this season, leads the team in total tackles with 41 and had 0.5 tackles for a loss in both the Idaho and UNC games. Greer also led the team in total tackles with 10 against North Carolina. The last time the Cavaliers took the field two weeks ago against Idaho, Greer posted a big outing with a game-high 13 total tackles.
Production is nothing new for Greer. After redshirting, he led the team with an impressive 92 total tackles in 2009 and was second on the team during his sophomore year. This season, Greer clearly is building on what he has done for Virginia over the past two years. Greer currently is tied for 11th place in the ACC with an average of 8.2 tackles per game. He also ranks 17th in defended passes per game with 0.8.
Greer and the Hoos exit their bye week and fall break, which gave them extra time to practice, watch film, and meet with coaches so that they are ready to execute in this game against the Yellow Jackets. Last fall against Georgia Tech, Greer recorded just 5 assisted tackles. He says that the team definitely feels better prepared for Georgia Tech this time around.
“Our guys are way ahead coming out of this bye week compared to last year. Guys feeling more comfortable and have a better knowledge of their assignments … gotta get those extra looks. Their steps are different. Their lineups are different. Have to get into the film room to get those extra reads. Only thing [UVa] is doing different is seeing the triple option,” Greer said.
Greer explained what Virginia’s defense is prepared for with this unconventional offense.
“When you face a triple option … if you miss one, they will expose that, and that is what they are trained to read. If one guy misses his read … that guy will virtually go untouched. … In another game, it will be a running play and the whole defense is trying to converge on that one player,” but with the triple option there are many different reads that the defense has to converge on and UVa has been preparing the last two weeks for that.
Regarding a little fun off of the field, but still very much football related, Greer claims he personally did not partake in any video game action to practice against a GT-style offense. But he can’t deny that “other guys on the team may have gotten involved in that.”

Like movies and Virginia basketball? Well, here’s some good news. The Virginia Film Festival features a documentary with Cavalier center Assane Sene this year. Elevate highlights four players including Sene from the SEEDS Academy (learn more at www.seedproject.org) in Dakar, Senegal where young basketball players from across West Africa gather for a program that focuses on academics and athletic training. Players, like Sene, who stand out earn full scholarships to preparatory high schools in the United States. That step could create opportunities for college.
Elevate is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 4 at 6:45 p.m. at the Regal 3 theater on the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville (click here for more info) as part of the annual festival. Sene and Kandioura Drame will have a discussion at the screening. Fans have discussed the movie on the EDGE message board.
So is Sene a movie star?
“I’m not a movie star yet. I’m more like a student and a basketball player for now,” a smiling Sene said at Virginia’s men’s basketball media day on Thursday. “It’s a documentary they did about me and some other players from Senegal. We went to a school in Senegal called SEEDS. They made a documentary trying to help and support the [SEEDS program] and go forward like I’m helping this program to go forward. I’m not a movie star yet, but I’ve heard that a lot. People are like ‘You’re a movie star’ and I’m like not yet.”
For now? Not yet? Doesn’t sound like the door is shut on the bright lights of Hollywood.
“Not yet because I don’t know. I don’t know exactly what’s going to happen tomorrow or next year or next month. I don’t really know so that’s why I use the yet,” Sene said laughing.

During Virginia’s men’s basketball media day, there are obviously tons of questions and tons of answers. I thought I’d share this thought from Mike Scott, though:
“I don’t think we have to do that. I think we all know and we look at each other and have that telekinesis where we read each other’s minds and we’re all hungry. I know I’m itching to get back out there.” – Mike Scott on being hungry and if the team has circled up to talk about that hunger.

Multiple outlets, including this report on PalmettoSports.com, have reported that dynamic wide receiver Stefon Diggs has revealed his final 11 schools. They are: Auburn, California, Florida, Florida State, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, South Carolina, Southern Cal, Virginia and Virginia Tech.
Diggs, a 5-star prospect out of Good Counsel (Olney, MD), reportedly is set on taking official visits to Cal and Florida. The other three officials are yet to be determined, but it looks like he will take all five before making a decision.
