Just got this statement from Virginia's athletic department confirming quarterback Peter Lalich is off the team:

"Peter Lalich is no longer a member of the University of Virginia football team," athletic director Craig Littlepage stated in the release. "We have supported Peter, but believe today a point has been reached where it's best for all concerned that he no longer participate on the team. This is my decision and it has the support of head football coach Al Groh. We wish Peter the best in the future. We will have no further comment."

Al Groh: "Any time a situation doesn't work out in the most positive way for any player it's regrettable, but we stand united with this decision."

Fortunately for the Cavaliers, they have a bye week.
