London:Loss "Disappointing" and "Frustrating"
"Obviously, very disappointed in the second half, we couldn't stop then and contain drives," said London after UVa's 35-22 loss to Duke. "It's very frustrating."
Virginia saw a 22 point lead disappear on Saturday, as Duke clawed back with 35 unanswered points to take home the win.
"It was a combo of what Duke did and what we didn't do. They came out in the 2nd half and did a good job adjusting. They extended drives. We didn't. They capitalized and we didn't"
The Blue Devils were 4-for-4 on fourth down, while the Cavs struggled for a first down in the second half, going without a first down for five consecutive drives.
"There were breakdowns in coverages and communications," said London on Duke's fourth down conversions. "We need to do a better job coaching and teaching. We need to handle adversity better."
The team now faces some big adversity-trying to snap a four game skid.
"These guys are students and athletes. And they want to win. We need to do a better job responding. I have to do a better job.
"A young team continues to move forward and learn how to win. There are more challenges to be met. It's easy to point figures. but we can't do that to young men who think their identity is wrapped up in wins and losses. They need to know they're more than football players. Those are life lessons we need to continue to teach.
