((The national media has not been able to picture Thomas Jones as the best, despite becoming UVa's all time career leading ground gainer and the leading rusher in the country over the weekend. ((BOBBY BOWDEN:))
With three games remaining, the nation has missed most of an incredible career because of the mediocre season Virginia has had. Younger brother Julius provides a second chance. The Notre Dame Freshman has earned more minutes by averaging 5.6 yards a carry for the Fighting Irish. ((THOMAS JONES:)) When Julius isn't piling up yards, he's bragging on his big brother, who educated him with work, not words. (( JONES:)) ((STEVE MASON:)) ((THOMAS:)) The pair has one other major bond, Julius's twin sister Knetris is a freshman at UVa. Steve Mason, News 7 sports.))
