Since just about everyone knew that Virginia should handle VMI, the biggest question entering the contest was who would back-up Marc Verica at quarterback?
After all, Verica is a senior. The heir apparent is still unknown and after three weeks, the answer seems murkier as opposed to clearer.
Most people expected to see Ross Metheny enter the game as signal-caller. Having already used his redshirt season, Metheny was a safe bet to see some game action and he played well.
In just one possession, Metheny marched the team down the field with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Jared Green. On the eight play, 61 yard drive, the redshirt freshman was 4-of-5 for 53 yards.
However, when the fourth quarter came along, fans were surprised to see true freshman Michael Rocco take the field.
Rocco looked to be a redshirt candidate himself and coach London's predecessor made some enemies for his decision to burn redshirts unnecessarily.
Well Rocco certainly looked poised in his collegiate debut, going 4-of-6 for 64 yards and a touchdown himself.
After the game, coach London said he put in both because it is important to know who is second on the depth chart and they did not have a clear favorite yet.
Well, with similar numbers and poise, the only thing that seems cleared up is that Virginia will have quite the battle for the quarterback position in 2011.
It will be interesting to see what this means for the rest of the season. If the Cavaliers continue to play well, Verica will be just fine.
However, if the season gets away from Virginia, will we see more of these two young men than we expected?
