... is hardly cause to compare the firing of SG to a "nuclear bomb".
If you look around the Interwebs, most columnists and fans agree that however awkwardly it was handled, it was time for SG to go. It's not like VT just fired Coach K the day after he won a national championship.
I'll be sorry if Harrell goes elsewhere but I've learned over the years not to lose too much sleep over the decisions of high school students.
I agree. I don't want to lose any recruits or players, but this is bigger than any of them. I'd hope a coach isn't the only reason they'd pick a school. While these recruits were committing to SG, he was shopping himself to SMU. Which he should have been doing, if he thought it better for he and his family.
