What will it take for Tech to "kick up" their basketball program?
I had not planned to watch the Selection Show tonight; however, I did just to see who was "in" and who was "out". As the selections were announced I began to wonder what it will take for VT to become a player in the ACC and on the national level in BB. My conclusion won't make all you Greenberg fans happy but I think we need a new coach. The administration must also be "jolted" to want and make basketball a priority in Blacksburg. We cannot accept 8 NCAA appearances in the past 45 years as a standard. The NIT banners hanging in the rafters are embarrassing, outnumbering the NCAA appearances which spells out "we ain't so good in basketball." Some big time changes are the only answers for better days.
