The University of Virginia (in Charlottesville) recently announced its 2010-2011 schedule, in which they're hosting the ACC championships a couple of weeks before competing in the NCAA's up @ Philadelphia, Pennsylvania:

Wouldn't it be neat to have them wrestle Penn State, Oklahoma and Cornell again? Perhaps the NCAA qualifying criteria disincentivize such an endeavor? Maybe if they had some courageous Texans on their line-up to demand such a bold scheduling move...
Either way, it's intriguing how our sport is fully funded @ U.Va. That surely didn't hurt when U.Va. recently placed an all-time record high #3 nationally in overall athletics achievement:

In-state rival Virginia Tech has been fertile terrain for Texans aspiring to wrestle in college (such as Spuujt, and more recently some Bishop Lynch alumni, etc). Other Texans have wrestled recently in the ACC at schools such as Duke & UNC. Are Texans contacting U.Va. yet? Scholarships are available, and the academic ranking in U.S. News helps with subsequent job searches, as well...
