Hiring a new coach is always a risk. Hiring Greenberg was a risk...
My only suggestion is that once the new coach is announced we don't all immediately assume it's the best/worst thing ever before they actually coach a game here. Because the reality is that no one knows.
Yes, agreed on all fronts, especially that Seth was a huge risk.
I don't care if we could even get Smart or Marshall, it would still be a massive risk. Just because you won in one situation does not mean you can win in another situation entirely. Look at the former WKU coach that just miserably failed at South Carolina as a perfect example.
And, FYI, you will never hear me project someone to fail at VT before they've had their full chance to do what they can do. Unlike a lot of people I don't take any pleasure at predicting failure and then hoping seeing it come true so I can pat myself on the back (That one's for you, Jesse/ACCJesse/SECJesse).
