The tell-tale sign a coach is in trouble: He claims he neither reads nor hears criticism. Al Groh says he’s bunkered down in his office, working 14-hour days to get his Virginia team back on track.
Meanwhile, he has no legitimate Division I quarterback and a lack of skill-position talent has left his offense last in the nation in scoring (nine points per game) and second-to-last in total offense (behind only Florida International). It gets worse: Last week’s game against Duke was the Cavs’ final chance at victory–and they lost 31-3. Check that, there still is Clemson.
