VIRGINIA'S NEW STARTING an aspiring economist, semi-retired cartoonist and self-taught musician whose tastes range from Marvin Gaye to Coldplay. And what, you might ask, does any of this have to do with Marc Verica shepherding the Cavaliers through what promises to be a minefield of a season? Who knows?

He was a hit in the lobby of Virginia's hotel at last season's Gator Bowl, and he offers performances on campus during meals and between classes.

"I play a lot of my own stuff," Verica said. "Technically I'm not the most sound guy. I don't know how to read music. … I just kind of play what sounds good and people normally like it, so I guess that's a good sign. … It's relaxing, it's fun, it's definitely therapeutic in a sense."
