The other T.J.

During his 18-year tenure in Charlottesville, reticent Virginia coach George Welsh has heaped praise upon individual players about as often as BYU has employed the wishbone offense.

Cavs target Hokies, look to build on win

With Saturday's dramatic 45-40 victory over BYU serving as the anomaly, Virginia's weekend expedition westward was a bit rockier than expected. Following the late night heroics, the team bus was without escort, delaying the squad's arrival at the airport until nearly 1 a.m.

Wild times in Provo, wackiness across the wide world of sports, and, yes, more Thomas Jones

Exactly how much of a time differential is there between Charlottesville and Provo? Is it two hours, like the map says, or was I thrown into some alternate, bizarre dimension where everything is thrown into chaos? After catching up on all the wackiness that went down in the world of sports this weekend while I was in Utah, I'm beginning to subscribe to the latter idea. We'll begin close to home with our own football team.

Field hockey loses fifth straight game to ODU

It's not how you start; it's how you finish, right? Well, maybe. After suffering a 3-2 overtime loss yesterday to in-state rival Old Dominion, the Virginia field hockey team was left wondering whether their lackluster performance in the first half was the deciding factor in a hard-fought physical defeat. The Monarchs took advantage of the slow start to jump to a 2-0 lead.

Cavs top Tar Heels

With four first-year starters, the Virginia men's soccer team knows its future looks bright. But judging from Saturday night, the future is now. The No.

Virginia hosts Coke Classic

The Stanford and Hartford women's soccer teams will be at Klockner Stadium this weekend for the Coca-Classic tournament, but it still remains to be seen which Virginia squad will show up. Will it be the Cavs who have risen to No.

Men's soccer takes 27th straight win over Hokies

In what looked like a massacre on paper, the Virginia men's soccer team just barely escaped Klockner Stadium with a 2-1 victory over Virginia Tech last night. Tech "is a better team than we thought they were," Cav coach George Gelnovatch said.

Crawford recognized for community service

Casey Crawford did not get to contribute to Saturday's 35-7 win against Wake Forest, but the Virginia tight end got some good news yesterday. Crawford has not played this season because of the hernia surgery he had this summer, but he was one of 11 Division I-A football players to be named to the 1999 American Football Coaches Association Good Works Team.

Feterik upholds BYU quarterback legacy

Robbie Bosco knows all too well what it feels like to be Kevin Feterik - to live every second of every Saturday in a pressure cooker. That's because Bosco, a former Brigham Young quarterback who led the Cougars to the national championship in 1984, was in Feterik's position, right under center, 11 years before Feterik arrived in Provo, Utah. So that may explain why, instead of advertising his protégé like a garage sale, Bosco, who now coaches the BYU signal callers, pulled his prodigy aside for a stern dose of reality.

Jones, Isabelle claim ACC weekly honors

Two of the U.Va. football team's finest starters, tailback Thomas Jones and defensive lineman Yubrenal Isabelle, were named ACC Players of the Week for their respective positions after Virginia's 35-7 rout of Wake Forest Saturday. Jones, a 5-10, 207-pound fourth year from Big Stone Gap, Va., led a formidable offensive attack for Virginia, rushing for 164 yards and posting three touchdowns - a personal career high - including touchdown runs from 15 and 12 yards out.
