Wahoowa: The History of Virginia Cavalier Football DVD is the story of the college program that impacted the sport of football like no other. It is not only a comprehensive look at the history of football at the University of Virginia, but also an exploration into the development of the truly American sport of football through the prism of U.Va.'s players, students, administration, and opponents.
Uncover the early years of U.Va. football—from shocking new research that reveals the University of Virginia may have the fourth-oldest program in history, to the story of two graduate students who officially introduced the game to Virginia students in 1886, to accounts of U.Va. fielding the most dominating team in the South during its first three decades.
* See how two tragedies involving U.Va. almost derailed the sport of football before it took root, and how the University's administration came to the rescue during the biggest upheaval the sport has ever known.
* Follow the University's uncanny and long-standing ability to be at the forefront of eligibility, rules, and scholarship reforms, and discover their historical involvement in breaking down racial barriers.
* Experience the despair of fielding the worst team in college football history in the late 1950s and the miraculous rise to the #1 ranking in the country only three decades later—as well as the consistent success for years to come. Item #: UVAM563
