Groh Says Cavs Have Avoided Swine Flu

Virginia’s football team has had not had any cases of swine flu, Coach Al Groh said in his teleconference this morning. As of Tuesday, U-Va. had 55 cases of flulike illnesses.

“We’ve discussed it,” Groh said. “We’ve discussed some of things the players can do, and the impact would have on the team should it affect our team the way it has others.”

Groh said the team is waiting for a swine flu vaccine to become available.

Texas Christian, Virginia’s opponent on Saturday, had a swine flu issue a few weeks ago. Five TCU players contracted the flu, Coach Gary Patterson told reporters in late August. Patterson said earlier this week the team has recovered.
