I'd personally bump Enos down a notch pending the UMass/EMU games. I really wonder if UVA ponies up that buyout this year for London and staff. I think they need to give Grobe one more year, but he'd have to make a bowl next season. I'd bump up Paul Johnson a notch. They're basically a .500 squad since their ACC title and if he loses to UGA this year that would make five in a row - with some games in there against some pretty weak UGA teams. He probably will get another year, though, just to pare that buyout down a little more.


I think Edsall is offically off of the list.
