YAY! Finally. I can't believe it took this long. The school had banned all signage from games because too many said "Fire Groh" or "Groh must go!"

I found this funny:

Virginia's decline was especially felt at home games, where the average attendance for 61,500-seat Scott Stadium had dropped by 13,600 in two seasons heading into Saturday afternoon's game. That drew a season-high 58,555 fans, but nearly half of them were Hokies supporters and many chanted "Keep Al Groh!" as the final minutes ticked off the clock.

Always a strange program under him. Most years had one or two outstanding (like 1st/2nd round) NFL prospect, but never was able to put together any sort of real consistency.

Their defense is well coached out there in Virginia, but the offense was usually so bad that the defense was on the field for the whole game. It's hard to keep the other team out of the endzone when your offense sucks.
