Close relationships: the University of Richmond and the University of Virginia should know something about that.
About a half-dozen coaches on each side have played or coached for the other. UVA’s head coach Mike London played for the Spiders and coached the team to the FCS Championship in 2008. Richmond’s first year coach Donny Rocco will see his nephew start at quarterback for Virginina on Saturday. Richmond’s backup quarterback is a recent transfer from Virginia.
I-64 has become a popular U-Haul route between the two schools and will likely remain so.
I just love this time of year.
