The University of Virginia football team will deal with personnel losses during the offseason, following an excellent run to the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
One player they will be happy to have back is Michael Rocco, after a successful first season as the starting quarterback.
Not that things always went smoothly. Rocco had seven interceptions in his first four games and was splitting time with David Watford through mid-season.
But after he was given full control of the quarterback spot he led the Cavaliers to four wins in their last six games.
"My comfort just being the leader of this offense has grown tremendously over the course of the year," Rocco said. "Just my footwork and timing. Everything Coach [Bill] Lazor says a quarterback should be. I've taken a good step this year but there is a long way to go still."
Rocco set a personal best for passing yards in the Chick-fil-A Bowl with 312. He finished the year with 2,671 passing, the most by a first-year starter in school history.
