To be fair, Greyson Lambert deserves to have his departure put in some context.
… And as colleague Andrea Adelson noted, the QB spot has been among the biggest reasons London’s program has struggled the past three seasons, with three different signal-callers leaving Charlottesville for other destinations.
None of those are FBS programs, let alone SEC programs, which makes the Lambert experiment in Athens all the more intriguing.
Stability at the position has not been the Virginia offense’s middle name during Mike London’s tenure (or even before). Consistent departures would seem to hint at some broader level of dissatisfaction with how quarterback development has been handled.
So rather than this being about his girlfriend, perhaps Lambert decided that if London wasn’t willing to stick with him, the least he could do for himself would be to land with a program that at least has a clue about how to develop quarterbacks.
