I'VE NEVER been the overly sentimental type. In fact, chances that I'll get weepy about some needless milestone (i.e. the last time I'll stand in line at the Bookstore for a $5.00 notebook) are about as likely as expecting Kate Moss to show up at Outback.
All I ever wanted to do was write some sports articles in my spare time.
This weekend, I was one of the few hundred media types privileged enough to obtain credentials for NFL Draft 2000. Originally I intended to fulfill my duties - acquiring the necessary materials to pen an ode to Thomas Jones on the occasion of his selection - and then hang around at least through the close of the first round and soak up some savory NFL atmosphere.
NEW YORK-Shortly after NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue announced Courtney Brown as Cleveland's selection with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft, Tim Couch, last year's top choice, joined the former Penn State defensive end on stage and said some words to his newest teammate. The Cleveland Browns found a franchise quarterback in Couch; now they hope to have found the same on the other side of the ball in Brown, a unanimous All-American.
NEW YORK-He wasn't the first running back chosen, but that didn't make Thomas Jones' selection any less sweet.
The final hour is drawing nigh for this columnist. With the month of April now well underway and my thesis due date approaching all too rapidly, my ever-dwindling career at The Cavalier Daily has been reduced to a mere three columns.
The Virginia men's tennis team lost only one match against Maryland to return to the win column with a 6-1 victory over the Terps.
It's not very difficult to figure out what makes sports fans happy. They like sudden-death playoffs and upsets in the NCAA Tournament. They like buzzer-beaters, slam dunks, quarterback sacks and grand slams. But there's nothing sports fans like more than a good underdog story.
I stand before you today, gentle readers, a wiser man. Much like the blind Greek soothsayer Tieresias - or perhaps more like Yoda - I have seen the future. More specifically, I have borne witness to what the Virginia men's basketball team could become.
Seventeen days ago, all seemed right with the world for the Virginia basketball team: the Cavaliers had just roared back to defeat Maryland in overtime to finish off a 9-7 ACC season and earn a crucial 19th victory. Few in attendance that night will soon forget the postgame celebration, a nearly 30-minute love-fest featuring crowd surfing by Willie Dersch and Donald Hand and brief speeches by Cav coach Pete Gillen and a host of players.
Duke's Mike Krzyzewski usually ends up with it. Clemson's beleaguered Larry Shyatt may never get it. And temperamental Terp Gary Williams has a good chance at winning it this season. But for my money, the 2000 ACC Coach of the Year award should go to Virginia's Pete Gillen.
If you're a sports fanatic, it's probably happened to you. You've been up one night, watching the late SportsCenter, and intending to get some work done right after the always-informative "Did You Know?" segment. Then, right when the show ends, the phenomenon appears.
Dennis Womack didn't plan on this.
Three hundred sixty-seven days ago, the Virginia men's basketball team stood seconds away from a miracle win over No. 14 North Carolina.
After emerging from my one-year tour of duty as Sports Editor for this publication, I decided to return to the real world and - for only about the fifth time in two years - actually attend a men's basketball game as a fan. I don't know if my heart can take a return visit.
Ryan McGrath earned the ACC Wrestler of the Week Award yesterday, becoming the first Cavalier to reap that honor this season.
Last week, along with most of America, I watched as Kurt Warner completed his rise from grocery store stock boy to Super Bowl quarterback. Warner's fairy-tale season reminded me of another unlikely hero, one who led the Cavalier football team to a 45-38 win over Georgia Tech Nov. 6: David Rivers.
Virginia point guard Donald Hand and North Carolina center Brendan Haywood shared ACC Player of the Week honors after leading their respective teams to an undefeated week.
The St. Louis Rams and the Tennessee Titans combined Sunday for arguably the most exciting Super Bowl played in my lifetime. Too bad 90 percent of America couldn't have cared less about the outcome.
After the final buzzer sounded, closing out Virginia's 61-49 victory over Duke to attain sole possession of first place in the ACC, Coach Debbie Ryan and the Cavaliers assembled at center court for a huddle. The brief moment embodied the Cavs' tremendous turnaround since mid-December. Virginia had won 12 of its last 13 games to take first place in the ACC not by riding one or two stars to the top, but as a team.
