Virginia Football: Report Card Grades for the Cavaliers' First Game

One week down, but the enthusiasm for Virginia football is just picking up.

Two years ago, former coach Al Groh sealed his fate with an embarrassing loss to William & Mary on the Cavalier home field.

Seven turnovers left fans ashamed and led to our current rebuilding project with new coach Mike London.

New freshmen, new hope and a new season led to a 40-3 beatdown of the Tribe, and the Cavaliers are off and running. A truly cathartic experience for everyone, now Virginia can focus on trying to get back to their first bowl game since 2007.

On one hand, Virginia did what it was supposed to do. William & Mary is an FCS opponent, albeit a highly ranked one, and a team from a power conference should whip them.

However, given the past history, any win is a good one. When you consider how this win occurred, Virginia fans cannot help but get excited.

So, since the school year has begun, it's time for the Week 1 report card of the Virginia Cavaliers.

Let the grading begin!
