Continuing the trend of the original purpose of this thread backfiring..

here is a good article David Teel wrote on the process UVA went through in hiring Bennett. A very good read per usual from Teel. Didn't have a good reason for sharing it here until now...

FWIW, I have a couple UVA friends that make it really hard for me to root for UVA, so I don't. But I can really appreciate what Bennett has done there. I'm in no way interested in wishing Buzz away, because he has accomplished some great things here and I honestly don't think his approach is all that different from Bennett's - his mannerisms and way of speaking certainly are but the core is similar I think. That said, I would have been extremely happy if a guy like Bennett ended up at VT. He is hard to root against - even if UVA isn't.
