Soooo, he comes to VT from Marquette.....

And a few years later, VT fans are questioning his intelligence?

He left Marquette.....for Virginia Tech (basketball).

And NOW you want to wonder if he's smart? I mean, throw that comment out in 2014 and I'll listen. After he turns the worst Power 5 program into a Top 25 team in a little over two years....sorry man, you aren't going to win that argument.

Here is my response to all of your "business smart" and "ego trip" questioning of the man you have probably never spoken with in your life:

He is the BEST coach VT has ever had in hoops! I hope he stays FOREVER, but I know he won't. Because he is smart, he will leave at the right time....for him. But he is making VT hoops so GOOD, some fans will say anything possible to begin to detach themselves mentally and emotionally from him right now - while he is VT's coach and taking VT hoops to unimaginable heights - so as to lessen the emotional blow they will receive when he finally makes the smart move for HIM (and not them) and moves on.

Have you ever read the things he says about his recruits and players, how he wants them to develop the right way, as men? How basketball is secondary? And you are going to talk about him being on an ego trip?

And I get that, in a way. NOBODY wants Buzz to leave. How great is that? 100% of Hokie fans want a coach to stay? Effin A.... I would just suggest that you simply enjoy the ride, man. (I watched The Big Lebowski last night) We have a few years left with Buzz, I'd say at least two. Enjoy it. It's pretty fun, if you are smart and allow yourself to enjoy things.
