Jersey-retirement ceremony set at Virginia for Schaub and Ferguson
Question of the Day
Schaub, quarterback of the Houston Texans, has 22 school records, including career passing yards and touchdown passes.
Ferguson, an offensive lineman for the New York Jets, started a school-record 49 games for the Cavaliers as an offensive lineman.
“He’s kind of a model when you look at a Virginia grad. I know Brick is proud of the degree he got at Virginia and the fact that he’s doing quite well in the NFL.”
As to whether the duo would address the team before the game, London said “those guys can talk to the team anytime they want.”
Heath Miller’s number will be retired this season as well.
The Pittsburgh Steelers tight end will be honored Oct. 13 against Maryland, becoming the 22nd UVa player so honored.
New voice in radio booth
Saturday will mark the debut of Virginia football radio analyst Tony Covington, who replaces 29-year veteran Frank Quayle.
Covington was a cornerback for the Cavaliers from 1987-1990 and was a member of the 1990 team that was ranked No. 1 in the country.
He was invited to speak as part of a “life skills” series London was putting on and was asked if he’d like to audition for the radio job.
“I was trying to get [London] to come to Florida to recruit some of the kids,” Covington said. “He was a great recruiter when he was at UVa., and when he was up for the job, a lot of us alumni were hoping he’d get it. He’s done nothing but prove us right.”
