Poll: How will Virginia fare against Georgia Tech?

"You know, we haven't talked about it. I've been peppered with questions since the day I got here about that, and it's like, 'I'm here and I'm getting the team ready to play this season and this particular game.' And as I said, the respect that I have for Coach, you know, that's unquestioned. Now we're competitors, and I think the players, we just want to play well."

-- Virginia Coach Mike London

The theme of the week -- whether the Cavaliers have liked it or not -- has been how London and the players will feel Saturday going up against Al Groh, who now serves as Georgia Tech's defensive coordinator after spending the past nine seasons as Virginia's head coach. London said the team has not discussed it, though it would be remarkable if at least some of the players did not draw additional emotional fuel from the opportunity to perform in front of their former coach.

Regardless, Virginia (2-2, 0-1 ACC) will be looking to avenge last season's 34-9 loss to Georgia Tech and claim its first conference victory of the year. The Yellow Jackets (3-2, 2-1) will be aiming to put forth a better effort in front of their home crowd than they did the last time they played in Bobby Dodd Stadium. Georgia Tech fell to North Carolina State, 45-28, at home on Sept. 25.

So, how do you think Saturday's game will play out? Feel free to expand on your choice in the comments section below and/or email me your thoughts at
