UVA has apparently hired Tony Bennett (I know, I know) to be its new men's basketball coach.
I've never heard of the man. He's been at Washington State for three seasons--in the first two he took his team to the NCAA's, this year he was 16-13 and a first round loser in the NIT.
Where did the rumors of Tubby Smith and Jeff Capel come from, I wonder? Are UVA hoops fans that delusional to think that a program that has won exactly one ACC tournament in its history (1976--Ralph Sampson never won an ACC tournament title) can really compete for coaches at that level?
To say I'm a little let-down is an understatement.
