Mike London's changes to the football program

When a new football coach arrives, you're bound to read stories about specific changes, whether it's to the locker room or the weight room or the way practice is organized. Virginia Coach Mike London had the shed near the Cavaliers' practice field painted orange, and the team will make changes with the uniforms that London was not yet prepared to discuss.

The locker room and McCue Center will also be remodeled, London said. It's all part of his effort to change the "attitude" in Virginia football and create the impression -- some real, some reputation -- that the team has completely distanced itself from the Al Groh era.

"The feedback from them is the practices are much faster, and with the changes of the philosophy of the defense we're playing much faster," London said. "I just think, more than anything else, the attitude has changed around here where you know what? There's no where else to go but up. There's improvement in a lot of areas -- we got to play better on offense, we got to play better on defense. They're buying into the schemes and the system."
