Virginia's Al Groh and Louisville's Steve Kragthorpe will be looking for jobs after being fired by their respective schools this weekend following poor seasons.

While we kind of wish Kragthorpe had been given a little more time—Louisville only recently lost Bobby Petrino—Al Groh, on the other hand...

Every season, Virginia had been talked about in the wrong terms—it was always about Groh's survival rather than the team being a potential ACC winner.

Groh lasted nine seasons and ended with a Hokie boot in his behind with a 42-13 home slaughtering at the hands of Virginia Tech.

He only beat the Hokies once in nine attempts. Nothing annoys the local alumni, the most powerful thing in college football (make no mistake about it), than getting your ass handed to you by your local rival.   And Al Groh had it happen to him. A lot.

So goodbye, Al and Steve. And remember, Tyrod Taylor says goodbye, too.
