I want to take the time to thank everybody who has been on the front-lines fighting COVID-19, and I want to especially thank UVA’s very own Dr. MacKnight. Thank you for all you have done to help keep everyone safe #HoosYourHero pic.twitter.com/DEMn7Gdekd

@UVAFootball’s Vinnie Vladic is keeping with a recent trend of thanking frontline workers who work directly with our student-athletes to keep them safe.

Normally at this time of year, the College World Series would be in full swing. In its absence, NCAA Baseball is running a bracket of the top 32 CWS teams (since 1999) to determine a virtual champion. The 2014 national runners-up are the 25-seed in the tourney, going up against a tough 8-seed in Texas in the first round. D1Baseball breaks down the match-up here. Click on the Tweet above to vote. The poll closes this morning so don’t delay. (Note: the 2015 NCAA Champion team is actually seeded even lower, just cracking the bracket at No. 31. They will take on the No. 2 overall team the 1999 Miami team, in a later poll).
