#12 Virginia. (February/March change in AdjEM: -6.21) The wacky thing about Virginia showing up here is that the Cavs had seven wins after February 1 and six of them were by double-digits, including games against Louisville and North Carolina. But four of their seven losses were by double-digits as well. The offense was completely inept at times and the season ended with a 26-point drubbing by Florida. It didn't help Virginia's rating that the ACC had a disappointing postseason as well. Others: 2. UAB (-5.95), 3. St. Francis Brooklyn (-4.68), 4. San Diego (-4.46), 5. Yale (-4.39).

Brandon Radcliff was bummed that he didn't get an invite to the combine, but that doesn't mean he's giving up on his NFL dream.
"It was a little devastating," he said. "I was down for about five minutes."
Radcliff's spirits raised with the encouragement of family and friends, and he turned his attention to training for U of L's pro day, which took place Thursday with representatives from 30 NFL teams on hand at the Trager Center.
"It was definitely a motivation for me," said Radcliff of not getting a combine invite. "It was fuel for my fire. I expected to get one just because those guys who (did get invited), I felt I could go there and compete with those guys. It would have put me at a level playing field. ... But when I didn't get that invite, it just gave me fuel to go out there and do a little bit better - or a lot better. I just wanted to go out there and outwork those guys."
