Mike London “exceeded expectations” because, after a 4-8 debut in his first “rebuilding” year, the Hoos’ head coach managed to piece together an 8-4 record in his second season. That included four wins by three points or less and the 38-0 beatdown at the hands of Virginia Tech, the Hoos’ first shutout at home since 1984.
Just to dish a little history, Al Groh went one better in his first “rebuilding” year, posting a 5-7 record. In his second season, the Cavs went 8-5 in the regular season, including a 21-9 pasting by the Hokies in Blacksburg.
At the time, folks like the esteemed columnist above claimed that Groh would be Virginia’s savior, leading them to college football’s promised land. In nine seasons at the helm of the UVa. football program, Groh posted a 59-53 record, 36-36 in conference, including one (1) win against Virginia Tech. He was fired after going 3-9 in 2009, a season capped by a 42-13 thrashing by Virginia Tech in Charlottesville.
Just a suggestion, but maybe folks need to calm the hell down about lauding Mike London at this point. Or, hey, do what you want. The Hokies are always at the end of the schedule, waiting to put the Hoos and whoever their head coach is in their proper place — second in the Commonwealth — year after year after year.(via briancolligan)
