Sign Ban Lifted at Scott Stadium

Big news bulletin for Saturday's game: Virginia has rescinded a ban on signs at its football games, calling the policy a distraction. Athletic Director Craig Littlepage says in a statement released by the school that the football team needs support. The school did not say whether the content of signs and banners will be screened.

When the ban was enacted, many viewed it as a pre-emptive strike to shield Coach Al Groh from public displays of criticism. So the lifting of the ban in the Cavaliers' first home game since dropping to 1-3 and losing to Duke seems odd timing.

Any signs you're hoping to see Saturday?

I'm hoping to see a sign of MD playing more consistent, and consistently great at that...

I'm bringing an "I Love Groh" sign. Hope he never leaves HooVille. Go Terps!

I'm sure all 8 paying UVA fans that there will be glad to know they can bring their signs. Can we get a Tie ban?? This is football afterall.

I think a gigantic "GO TERPS" would look good right behind Virginia's bench!
