    Haha, what was the bet again? A Greenberg coached Virginia Tech team will never make the tournament again? I think we were under the assumption he would actually get a chance to however. But yeah, ya got me.

    Where to begin? Number one, I hate "articles" that are just six paragraphs long. That's almost as bad as Twitter. If you're only writing six paragraphs, then you're trying to (a) get some information out --not the case here; or (b) get a rise out of people -- bingo.

    Number two, this is some of the worst stat-smithing I've ever seen:

    Again, though, he went to one NCAA tourney and finished fourth or worse in the league seven times.
    Really? Really? I've done some horrendous things with stats in my time in an effort to support my point, but ... really?

    Agree. This looked more like a cheap shot or piling on that anything else. Terrible.

    Mike Huguenin, yahoo "Sports Expert". What a joke. Yahoo has been working hard to actually garner real sports analysists, Dan Wetzel, Pat Forde, Michael Silver, etc. (not saying I'm a fan of Forde). But to trot this clown out as an "expert" - zero credibility.
