UVA fans who live in Nova and Maryland miss the rivalry.


Posters often ask the question on The Sabre about who UVA should play OOC, and a pretty large contingent say Maryland. They are mostly NOVA Hoos. The games were an easy commute, and they see Maryland fans on a regular basis.

The rest of the UVA fans don't even comment about Maryland at all much. The UVA-MD rivalry never had much intensity as the two were never good at the same time. When MD was good in football UVA was terrible, and when UVA was good in football in the 90s, Maryland was terrible. Same for basketball. When Maryland was good in basketball, they looked at Duke and UNC for rivals. When UVA has been good lately, Maryland is gone. So I would never consider it an intense rivalry.
