I know a guy who left Berkeley to do condensed matter theory at UVA, but I don't remember who it was he went to work for.

Well, without more information, I don't think that story suggests anything about the quality of UVA's physics department or CMT research. Someone might switch schools for many reasons such as (a) to be with a spouse and/or (b) failing quals at school A.
