Can Mike London Survive Saturday’s Crushing Loss?

Virginia head coach Mike London leads the list of most vulnerable head coaches in college football this year. In all likelihood, the Cavaliers need to make a bowl game or the sixth-year coach will be gone. It’s not unreasonable—Virginia has only made one bowl appearance in London’s first five years. But it made Saturday’s 34-27 loss to Notre Dame even more heartbreaking. As one who started the game wanting the Irish to win, I couldn’t help but start to root for London as the game went on and the upset looked ready to happen.
