Poll: How will Virginia fare in first game under Mike London?

On Saturday, the Cavaliers will take the field in new orange jerseys and blue pants. They'll be led by first-year coach Mike London, who will be facing Richmond, the team he guided to a 24-5 record (including the 2008 division I-AA national title) over the past two seasons.

No senior on the Virginia roster has won a season opener during their collegiate career, and no Cavaliers head coach has won his debut since Bill Elias in 1961.

The Spiders have a talented roster, but they are replacing 15 starters from last year's 11-2 campaign. The Cavaliers will test out a new pro-style offense and a converted 4-3 defense.

A prounoun should agree with its antecedent. The subject of this part of the sentence is senior which should take a singular possessive pronoun.

In this sentence, "his" should have been used rather than "their."

Me thinks the Washington Post was sloppy here.

"No senior on the Virginia roster has won a season opener during their collegiate career . . ."
