"I started out as a business major 'cause that's what my parents wanted me to do," the 1981 DePauw graduate tells the newspaper. "That lasted till my second year when I took microeconomics."

Borbely and other assistants to Virginia head coach Al Groh are cited in a humorous story by Bob Lipper. "Normally, Groh keeps their lips zipped like a ski parka at Wintergreen. It's the 'one-voice' mantra he inherited from mentor/guru Bill Parcells -- the one voice in this case NCAA Football Wilson.jpgbelonging to Groh ... Except there's a brief window annually -- this year's runs from Aug. 5-19 -- when the assistants are made available to us news hounds. Sunday was the midpoint for this freedom-of-information bonanza."
