Before Friday night, only the most careful baseball observers knew who Bryce Florie was. Even those scattered rotisserie league fanatics who recognized the name could place him only as one of dozens of faceless relief pitchers who toil nearly anonymously in the major leagues.
Virginia 26, Richmond 7
Sept. 13, 1997
Led by a trio of current pros, the Cavalier defense smothered the Richmond offense all day, setting up three touchdowns in Virginia's 26-7 win at Scott Stadium.
Middle linebacker Wali Rainer, safety Anthony Poindexter and defensive end Patrick Kerney helped hold the Division I-AA Spiders to 171 yards of total offense as the Cav defense forced four Richmond turnovers.
The game's first play from scrimmage provided a glimpse of what was to come for the Spider offense, as defensive tackle Antonio Dingle caused a fumble that cornerback Dwayne Stukes scooped up and returned for a 17-yard score.
Defensive end Andreas Karelis set up Virginia's second touchdown with a fumble recovery as well.

When the Cavaliers pass
Dan Ellis completed 13 of his 23 passes for 217 yards last week, numbers that should only go up against a tiny Spider secondary.
For any football team, the first few days after a loss are always a time for second-guessing, but the Cavaliers engaged in more than their share of what-ifs and hypotheticals yesterday, two days after their season-opening overtime loss to Brigham Young.
Virginia coach George Welsh faced plenty of questions about his fourth quarter play calling, but the topic du jour was the Cavs' continuing penchant for blowing leads.
If you remember the 1999 Virginia soccer teams and are trying to apply that to the upcoming season, please don't.
Not to be a complete carpetbagger or anything, but I have news for all you Southerners out there: Auto racing is not a sport.
Judging by the attention NASCAR receives from newspapers around Virginia, the Commonwealth's sports fans would argue that point.

Established as a good bet for Olympic gold after breezing to a pair of world records two months ago, Virginia swimmer Ed Moses has decided to give up his final two years of NCAA eligibility.
Moses is sifting through endorsement deals and stands to receive substantial bonuses from U.S.A.
After a lengthy courtship of J.C. Mathis, Pete Gillen and the Virginia coaching staff finally got their man when the 6-foot-8 New York recruit committed to the Cavaliers two weeks ago.
Mathis, a 220-pound forward from John F.
Four years ago, Willie Dersch graduated from Holy Cross High School, ready to take the ACC by storm after a high school career in which he was named a McDonald's All-American and was honored as the best basketball player in the state of New York.
This weekend, Dersch graduates from the University of Virginia, ready to prove himself in the world of investment banking after a college basketball career in which he failed to reach the lofty goals established for him by recruiting experts and Cavalier fans.
Dersch arrived in Charlottesville bearing the burden of what now look like unrealistic expectations.
I missed it last year. Dom Starsia and his always- a-bridesmaid-never-a-bride band of Cavaliers deked and juked their way to the 1999 NCAA men's lacrosse title, past the national rivals that always used to trip them up just short - and I missed it.
Such are the consequences of those few weeks during finals each semester when the honest, hard-working folks who lovingly craft your Cavalier Daily each and every day succumb to the reality that they might actually have to study for those three-hour examinations looming on the horizon.
James Madison freshman righthander Mike Trussell dazzled the Cavaliers yesterday at the U.Va. Baseball Field, allowing only six hits en route to a complete game 3-1 victory against Virginia.
David Stone's RBI fielder's choice gave the Cavs (19-25-1, 7-11 ACC) an unearned run and a quick lead in the third inning.
Mark Hurrie and Alexander Starr combined to shut down the Dukes (30-15) for most of the game, but JMU tied the game in the eighth and scraped together two runs in the top of the ninth.
The Virginia track and field squads fell well short of the team titles this weekend at the ACC Championships, but the Cavalier throwers led a pack of athletes who turned in stellar individual performances.
Sophomore Brian Kollar and freshman Inge Jorgensen captured the Cavs' only conference titles, both coming in the javelin.
The Cavalier men finished eighth overall, while the women - who were second after the first day of competition - wound up fourth.

Six weeks into spring practice, most college soccer coaches have freed themselves of the anxieties of recruiting.
Just one week after demolishing the world short-course records in the 100- and 200-meter breaststroke at the NCAA Championships, Virginia swimmer Ed Moses cruised to victory in the same events at the National Championships in Federal Way, Wash.
Moses, who said he tapered his training to peak at the NCAAs 10 days ago in Minneapolis, still won easily, taking both events by almost a full second.
One step forward, two steps back. The Virginia baseball team's frustrating dance around the .500 mark continues.
Tuesday afternoon the Cavaliers pounded out an 11-2 win at Richmond, but yesterday at the U.Va.
