Mike London, 4TH-YEAR UVA COACH (18-28 OVERALL), said "It's just great to see that these young guys have not quit, that they want to soak up as much as they can learn because they want to win, they want to play better, they want to do better. And I tell you, it's exciting, that irregardless of what's going on now, we still have to coach and teach these players. There's a lot of football left to be played, but there's also the development of guys that have been playing that they're gonna be better football players and that's the exciting part."
