Football: Playing for pride...or not?

With seven losses, Virginia is ensured a losing season and cannot make a bowl. That has prompted players to answer "pride" when asked what they're playing for in the final two weeks.

Don't count Virginia Coach Al Groh as one who will offer that response, though.

"I thought that's what we were doing every week," Groh said. "You know, I thought we were trying to prove something every week."

So why, then, do his players answer that way?

"I think you hear it at the end of the season because players have heard other players say it, or as I said, the question gets posed that way, so they answer it in the affirmative," Groh said.

If they have pride, they'll lose, so that Groh will be even more likely to get fired.
