The financial impact of a successful basketball program to a University
No doubt, the Vick years put VT on the national map and made them a more desirable school outside of Virginia. That doesn't mean their academics suddenly improved. Their sudden popularity and post-Vick growth was a result of national sports media attention.

lol what? Your grand return was to come in here whining about how you didn't like any of the coaches we're looking at and then spout a bunch of inaccuracies, and we're the problem?

I dont think anyone is offended. Someone just has a different opinion than you. Dont be afraid to defend your position. No one is going to take it personally. Free and even intense debate is a cornerstone of this country.

RE: The financial impact of a successful basketball program to a University
My UNCW grad daughter went to a law school where one of the Professors is a Gonzaga Law School grad. I grew up with the Professor. We met for the first time in 2009 36 years after we graduated from high school.

He talked about Gonzaga's basketball success. He was not a sports fan growing up. He has been a law professor for 30+ years and the first 15 years of his career, none of his colleagues had heard of Gonzaga. Now he's introduced as the professor from the great basketball school. Don't let anyone minimize the importance of the publicity athletic success can bring a school, among the alumni and the rest of the world.

Note the emphasis Harvard has put into football and basketball success recently.

No doubt. The stability of being able to afford to keep Mark Few around is what made that happen. He also doesn't have the ACC in his backyard. That's always going to be an issue for us until we can afford to shell out millions to a coach.

Now it is highly competitive or very good. Read Frank Beamer's book. Ask a bunch of VA tech grads and they'll give you the honest truth.

My wife graduated from Tech and many of her relatives before and since. You are badly informed on this. I know a ton of Tech grads and not a damn one will tell you anything close that. Do some homework on this outside of reading a book written by a football coach. I also will not comment on the ECU dig.

This is likely gonna happen to South Carolina in the next couple of years with that Final Four run. Millions and millions in publicity, and the quality of students getting in will rise as more people find out about the school.

He PAID for his own salary with NCAA wins and the cash boon the school has received as a result of his success. The school could pay him $2 million per year and come out ahead.

I think the difference between a school like UNCW or Gonzaga and South Carolina is South Carolina plays SEC football. They've got plenty of publicity already. Sure, the Final Four run might help, but proportionally it's no where near what I'd imagine the VCU or Butler Final Four runs had.
