It's going to be a busy Tuesday. No time to waste. Here are your links.
So the Al Groh's Last Game Week is officially on in Charlottesville. He was asked if he could hear the ax coming down on his tenure at Virginia (okay, not exactly in those words) on Monday. "It's not really about me," Groh said. "It's about the team and it's about the players. You know, that's all I'm really thinking about, so I don't really have any thoughts on it."
Meanwhile, the Cavaliers are just hoping to get healthy. My colleague Zach Berman reports on Cavaliers Journal that running back Mikell Simpson (hamstring) and defensive end Nate Collins (shoulder), two Virginia seniors who were injured in Saturday's loss to Clemson, both expressed optimism that they will play Saturday against Virginia Tech.
Virginia's special-teams failures have haunted them this season. The Cavaliers hired Ron Prince, the former Kansas State coach, to help work with the special teams this season. To no avail. "It's been frustrating for everybody on the team," Groh said. "We certainly expected more. There's been an awful lot of energy and effort put into it - more than ever."
And finally, ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit shows us what a rivalry is all about.
