Welsh responds to Holland letter

"You know, Shakespeare said something about this, didn't he, once? 'Much ado about nothing?'" Virginia coach George Welsh joked at yesterday's press conference in reference to the recent controversy over a letter from Virginia athletics director Terry Holland. Holland posted a letter last Wednesday on TheSabre.com, an independent Virginia sports Web site.

Don't wave goodbye to Welsh just yet

If you missed the radio broadcast of the Cavaliers' 27-10 victory over Wake Forest Saturday, you didn't miss much. Aside from Antwoine Womack's 40-yard touchdown run and Kevin Coffey's 48-yard touchdown catch, Virginia did just enough to take care of business on the field. The question on everybody's minds had to do with what happened off the field this week.

Football cruises to 17th straight win over Deacs

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.-After three minutes Saturday, the Virginia football team looked on the verge of blowing out Wake Forest, a mediocre conference opponent, in a game where a lopsided win would have allowed all the Cavs, and coach George Welsh especially, to avoid persistent questions about the coach's job security. But 57 minutes of play later, the Cavs had managed only an efficient but unremarkable 27-10 victory, and the questions remained.

Men's soccer suffers overtime loss to Tribe

Virginia freshman forward Alecko Eskandarian continued to pile up the goals, but he couldn't keep the Cavalier men's soccer team from swallowing a 3-2 overtime loss to unranked William & Mary last night in Virginia Beach. Tribe freshman Philip Hucles opened the scoring in the 50th minute and hammered home the game-winner in the 100th.

Tired of your Saturday Cavaliers? Check in with the ones who play on Sunday

So there I was in my half-furnished living room two nights ago, watching "Monday Night Football" and putting off all kinds of very necessary homework, when Terrence Wilkins makes a 27-yard touchdown catch for the Indianapolis Colts. At about that point, it occurred to me that any self-pitying Cavalier fan worth his striped tie - you know, the ones for whom Virginia football is a potent, drunken mixture of khaki and halftime tailgating - had surely just raised his hands skyward and pined for the days when Wilkins wore No.
