It is NFL Draft time as the opening of this blog post notes so The Afternoon Break opens this newest feature with some Chase Minnifield highlights. Enjoy.
- Poster Saratoga Hoo is trying to drive some UVa conversation on the boards. On the football front, “Which Hoo will have the most yards from scrimmage and what will that total be?” and on the basketball side, “Who will be our top two scorers and rebounders next year – and their averages?” So what do you think? Join those conversations and weigh in.
