  1. Gentlemen,
    I enjoyed the podcast. One comment. Please don’t assume the loudest, most obnoxious voices you hear on Twitter, TSl, or elsewhere are representative of the fanbase at large. They are not. I think most Tech fans understand the nature of today’s game game even if they don’t like it. I’m disappointed Kenny left though I understand why. I think he could have handled it better, but I don’t hold that against him. And certainly, the vast majority of Tech fans understand why Georgia would follow Kenny and don’t hold that against her. The loudest, most vitriolic, voices that might be complaining about Georgia or any other player are outliers. I hate to see any school’s fans judged based on the lunatic fringe.

  2. Have to admit that I find it very interesting how some people react to a coach leaving like it some kind of horrible personal flaw that someone wants to leave. CKB was/is a class act. I don’t remember anyone calling him a POS when he left JMU to come to VT. What is the difference? How about the new coach….is she a POS because she just up and left a program she took the NCAA tourney to come to VT.
    I think a significant dose of reality is needed. I for certain do not want someone coaching at VT that doesn’t have options……. Not fun to lose them, but CKB for sure left VT better than it was when he arrived…….cannot find fault for someone wanting to improve their circumstances.

  3. How about editing Brooks out of the opening montage, don’t want to see that POS anymore

  4. This most recent success of VT WBB for me will likely always be tainted by the abrupt and unceremonious departure of KB. It was a fantastic burger right up until I bit down on the rat bone.

    1. Agreed.
      He did a great job but didn’t have much to say when he left. Don’t recall him thanking VT for the great opportunity he was given when he came here…or the support he was given while here.

  5. Some Kentucky players hit the portal before Brooks was announced. What happens if they decide to withdraw from the portal and he then doesn’t have scholarships for Georgia and Clara?
