Seasoned Airborne supporters don't let trivial things like 35 unanswered second half points from UConn demoralize them. No sirree! After seeing the drubbings that we've seen over the course of our fandom, 35 unanswered points is just another nice Saturday afternoon at Wally Wade. Besides, Airborne fans rejoice in 2 things after the UConn loss: (1) Airborne did not lose to a 1-AA team that actually has Lenoir-Rhyne on its schedule; and (2) we were only shooting for a perfect ACC season anyways.
So that search for perfection takes Airborne to Charlottesville this weekend, where our Blue Devils will hope to avenge the 37-0 whitewashing at the hands of the Cavs last season in Wally Wade. They will get some help from the return of Michael Tauiiliii (there might be a few too many "i"s, but who's counting anyway). Tauiliii, who hails from right down the street from me (Alief Taylor), should bolster a defensive corp searching for answers.
DudeSpin's Prediction: It took David Hasselhoff a few verses to find freedom, it will take Airborne all of one week to find its defense - Airborne 24, UVa 10.
