    Will be interesting to see who they get. I think he took them to 2 Sweet 16's in the past 4 years.

    Word around the water cooler (does anybody even have one of those?) at work is that Virginia Tech should be concerned about them going after Buzz Williams. Whoever it is, I'm sure they'll throw a lot of money at him

    The system tells me that Jimbo will be taking over. One source told me, "If we are gonna pay him the money of coaching two teams, by golly we will make him coach two teams."
    Jimbo will be given the money saved to update the cars in the player lot.

    Out the next season after a Sweet 16 appearance and the departure of some key contributors. If the school engineered this, just shows how harsh a world DI basketball has become. And not a better world.

    Agreed. This was always going to be a rebuild year after what they lost last year. Not even a year removed from an impressive thrashing of defending champs UNC to advance to Sweet 16 at a program w/ little basketball history/success. I just don't get it unless it involves throwing crazy $$$ at some big fish. Even then, it's a dick move by the school.

    They have to hit a homerun. Personally, I think they will be looking for a new coach in 5-6 years.

    Brownell at Clemson should be heading towards the same fate.

    Hmm . . . so does this mean that the A&M -3.5 pick over Vandy was not a good one? :emoji_thinking: :emoji_astonished:

    Brownell had UNCW dancing almost every year here in Wilmington. Maybe we could get him back here.

    Why now though? What if they make a run. What if they pull off some grand upsets and win the SECT and get in?
    I never understand this. You can't wait 4 days?

    They could go old school SEC and have an assistant football coach be the head basketball coach.

    That's why they did it. Can't fire a guy who makes the big dance.
