Live at Scott Stadium
Ninety minutes from kickoff here at Scott Stadium, and it could not be a nicer day for football in Charlottesville. Both teams are out on the field warming up. Vic Hall is dressed. No word on whether he plays. Remember, he's listed as doubtful. The ACC defines doubtful as at most a 25 percent chance of playing. As a note, for up-to-the-minute in-game updates, be sure to check the Cavaliers Journal Twitter feed.
- There was much tailgating outside, although it was difficult to gauge how it compared to last week at the time I drove into the stadium. This might be a late-arriving crowd, because traffic reports on the radio indicated an accident on I-64 West. That means anyone coming from the Richmond area and even the Tidewater region are likely stuck, unless they found an alternative way. Any guesses on the attendance after last week's loss? Will they reach 50,000?
- Pay attention to TCU freshmen running backs Matthew Tucker (No 29) and Ed Wesley (No. 34). Tucker, a true freshman, won the 3-A offensive player of the year in Texas, which I'd imagine is an impressive feat. Wesley, a redshirt freshman, is the Mountain West Conference preseason freshman of the year. He won TCU's scout team MVP in 2008. Word is TCU coaches are high on both freshmen.
- For those wondering how the assistant coaches are split on gameday, here is what to expect:
On the field: Ron Prince (special teams), Dave Borberly (offensive line), Anthony Poindexter (DBs/asst. special teams), Latrell Scott (WR)
In the box: Gregg Brandon (Offensive coordinator/QBs), Wayne Lineburg (running backs), Chad Wilt (defensive line), Bob Price (tight ends), Bob Trott (linebackers)
