Andrea Adelson over at ESPN.com caught up with Virginia coach Mike London at the annual ACC spring meetings. The topic of the conversation? Expectations. Read Adelson’s blog post here for the full report, but here’s what Coach London had to say about expectations.
“Expectations are always at a point where you want to do well. I always make note that we won four games literally on the last play of the game last year. Look at whatever the record was, it could be four games less, two games less, but you want to attract very good student-athletes, guys that value an education. Virginia is the best of both world opportunities. The school’s academic reputation as well as what’s going on athletically, a chance to win, a chance to play, makes Virginia an attractive choice.”
So what do fans think? What are your expectations for UVa’s 2012 season. Editor Kris Wright started a football board thread here to gather fans’ thoughts.
