thank you, I would love for the team to finish strong this season and kill all the negativity. I am going against the grain and rooting for wins going forward.

Anyway, this guy has been named ACC Coach of the Year twice, has led VT to the fifth most wins in the ACC since inclusion beginning this season, has produced more 10-win ACC seasons than losing ACC seasons. His teams have beaten #1 nationally ranked teams home and away. He's beaten Duke and UNC home and away. Multiple times. He's produced the most wins in the last four years of any four years in the school's history. His players graduate, they stay out of trouble virtually all the time, but when they don't, they are disciplined quickly, regardless of upcoming game schedule. He's brought national sporting attention to the school in a positive manner.
But, hey, that yelly screamy NYC thing, that miser tag, the 'hated' labels, those are what really appeal to his staff, his team, and his recruits when they're visiting this web site. Why? Because they're what are repeated without substantiation.
Oh yeah, when these folks do succeed in running off Greenberg, you think they'll understand why no other good coach wants to enter this atmosphere?
