Thursday Morning Notes

- Chase Minnifield is ahead of Chris Cook on the depth chart because there are lingering questions about Cook’s injury. Cook missed all but one play in the 37-34 loss to Southern Mississippi on Sept. 19. Minnifield played well in Cook’s place.

“It’s just because we’re waiting to finalize what Cook’s circumstances are, and so in order to be perfectly honest and nobody says at the end of the week if he’s less than 100 percent that you didn’t tell us during the course of the week, then that’s all we’re doing,” Virginia Coach Al Groh said.

- Freshman wide receiver Tim Smith has been working with the kick returners. Groh said the major adjustment with a returner from high school to college is the trajectory of the kicks. Expect to see Smith in the mix this season.

- While prefacing that the kick return problems are a collborative effort that involves coaches and players, Groh said the solution is players blocking better.

- Asked about the tweaks in the Cavaliers offense, Groh said “tweak” is not in his vocabulary.

“For one, it’s too cute,” Groh said. “And two, I’m not exactly sure what tweaking means. I think I have an idea how people use it. At least here and any place I’ve been associated, it’s really gone on week-to-week.”
