Fuente had 2 good years at Memphis and a couple good at VT. But, he's not really a "people's person" per se. Not really a fan.

There was a core group at VT who was against the Fuente hire and had argued his Memphis turnaround was more a result of another coach's recruits, and that Memphis was in fact already in decline when he left for VT. The same group is applying that rationale to explain his early success at VT, and now what they point to as decline in the last two seasons.

Fair point. I'll have to look into that if VT decides to let him go.

I don't have any real insight into what our financial limits are, so it's hard to say what we can/cannot afford.

I hear a lot of people bitching about wanting/needing change but I don't hear many saying they'd dig deep to make that happen, which leads me to believe that there will be some changes but BW will be back.

So that and $4....


OTOH, your question does sound like the basis for a 78 research paper that could illuminate the subject, but that would also allow for the accompanying 78/Giles argument...

Not sure if BW would want to.come across town or if old, stuck in their CIAA ways alums would want him just because he came from ODU. Also, the budget would handcuff him, and playoffs are slim to none with our celebration bowl game

'Half the team' considering transferring from Ole Miss after Matt Luke firing, per player

Some players apparently aren't happy about Luke's dismissal at Ole Miss

Sucks to see this. He's a darn good coach who deserves to go out on his own terms;
