Leitao out at UVA

Recommended Posts

Kentucky is going to fire Gillespie IMO....He could be a good hire.

Of course, the obvious choice would be Anthony Grant, who is already coaching in the state of Virginia and he will be leaving VCU along with Maynor IMO.

Yup. Jones, Gillen, Leitao.

And yeah, no way Jones is coming back. UVA wouldn't want him back, and I'm sure Jones doesn't want to come back either.

I'm jumping on the "Bring Jeff Capel back to the ACC" bandwagon, thanks to beaner.

I'm purely speculating obviously and could be way off. But it looks like a great fit in my opinion.

I have a client who is a Kentucky Booster and he tells me some crazy stories about this guy. Not family friendly if you get my drift.

Heard similar things. Wouldn't be happy with him coming to UVA (Unless maybe Patrick Patterson came with him :scratchchinhmm:)

To me, Grant and Capel are the two obvious choices, and two I wouldn't mind. I'd much rather have Capel.

That said, I'm sure it will be someone unexpected. Last time, if I recall correctly, we went pretty hard after Tubby before deciding on Leitao.

What about Rick Carlisle? He has had some success in the NBA, and I wonder how he'd do in College. Are there any Virginia message boards out there that you look at? If so, what are they saying?

I do check out one board, but it's not very good, so I dont head there too much.

Most of the names mentioned there are the ones we have said. Grant and Capel the two biggest names. People have mentioned Tubby and Carlisle, Sean Miller's name came up a few times.

I don't really know.

I get the feeling it'll be someone we aren't talking about, and I won't be excited about it. I dunno, I'm just a little bit disappointed about this whole deal, unless we can get Capel.

Yea, I'm surprised at what happened today. I guess with the coach of the year two years ago, the new arena, and the crappy season this year it all added up for his exit.

I think Capel is the guy, and am glad that others are mentioning him as well.

I hope so. He would really bring some excitement to the program.

Word on the UVA board is Landesberg is pissed, and the recruit Spurlock is really upset as well.

UVA needs to bring in someone who has a good resume and can get those two guys in line. Capel would certainly be that guy IMO.

Well with Oklahoma still playing, obviously Capel's name shouldn't come up just yet. Keep me posted if you hear or read anything.

Yeah, I'm now rooting for Oklahoma to get bounced the first weekend to maybe get the ball rolling. Then Willie Warren and Griffin can declare for the draft and hire agents, and the orange carpet is out for Capel in Charlottesville!

So, go Morgan State!

Amen to that! I don't want anything to do with Blake Griffin in the Elite Eight.

The more I look at the brackets, the more I think it's going to be really tough for Carolina to get to Detroit.

Obviously Round 2 will be in Greensboro, but LSU could be a tough matchup.

Gonzaga in the Sweet 16 I think would be a really tough matchup as well.

I think Oklahoma or Syracuse would both give Carolina good games in the Elite 8 as well. Tougher bracket than I initially thought.

That said, if your guys play D and Lawson is healthy, the aren't gonna get beat.

I'm rooting for the ACC guys.

Maryland to take down Cal and Memphis. Clemson to beat Michigan and Oklahoma. Florida State to beat Wisconsin and then Xavier and then maybe Pitt. UNC to keep moving. Wake to get by pesky Cleveland State and then Utah or Arizona, and maybe Louisville. BC to beat USC and Michigan State. I GUESS I'll even root for Duke, especially if they play Minnesota in Round 2, just to take out as many Big Ten teams as possible.

Let's get at least 4 into the Sweet 16.

And find us a new coach at UVA, while we are at it. I'm looking at you Clemson.....knock out OU in round 2 so we can begin to wine and dine Capel!

It's not supposed to be easy to get to the Final Four. I agree that if we play Defense and Lawson is healthy, we won't lose. It's impossible to predict whether the Heels will play defense for 6 games in a row.

I think they can, i hope they do.

    • I agree, very hardline. I feel, that the players are stubborn enough, and call the owner out on this. But sides wanting the other to cave.
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970, the Orioles dropped a second game in a row to the Oakland A's by a score of 4-2. Frank Robinson went 2 for 4 with 1 RBI for the Birds. Tom Phoebus (5.1 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 BB, 4 K) was tagged with the loss. BOX SCORE  
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970, the Orioles lost to the Oakland A's by a score of 4-1.  Rollie Fingers and Mudcat Grant combined to three-hit the Orioles. Baltimore's lone run came off the bat of Frank Robinson, who hit his 7th homer of the season in the 7th inning. Mike Cuellar struck out 6 in the complete game loss. BOX SCORE
    • The latest mock from Jonathan Mayo... https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-mock-draft-june-3?t=mlb-pipeline-coverage    
    • I'll be back because...well, I love baseball.  I love the Orioles.  I really can't imagine MLB being played and not paying attention on some dumb principle that I have against the players and the owners because they're both spoiled assholes.  You can't get mad at water for being wet.   That said... God #@$%ING DAMMIT.  @#%& every last one of them.  MLB just...never gets it right.  The most painful thing in all of this is that they had a chance to lead.  They had a chance to be the first pro sports league to get it together this summer, to come up with a plan to get back to playing and be the first ones on stage Nascar doesn't count, you can't prove me wrong with NO OTHER COMPETITION.  MLB, the sport with the oldest, fart-knockingist fanbase.  MLB, the sport that always seems to lag behind other sports in...just about everything.  MLB, the sport with the dumbest marketing where they try SO HARD TO BE COOL AND RELEVANT.  They had such a prime opportunity to be front stage and center.  No NBA, no NFL and no NHL.  They had an opportunity to be leaders, to show the other leagues how it's done and the opportunity for starved sports fan to see what a great game it can be.  THEY HAD A CHANCE TO HAVE A COMPLETELY CAPTIVE AUDIENCE. And they blew it.   The NBA made it back first, which is not surprising.  In the NBA, you get players that make a metric $%#*ton of money and are also hyper aware and concerned with defining their legacy.  LeBron James is chomping at the bit to get back on the court because he knows this might be the best/last time he can contend for a title and if he wins it, it'd add to his legacy.  You get a guy like Giannis who is obsessed with knocking him off.  Meanwhile, in the MLB you get guys like Snell and Harper who are sitting around bitching about money.  You get the feeling that if someone told Harper this year he would bat .400 but would have to play for free to do it, he wouldn't think twice about sitting out instead of doing something that hasn't been done since 1941 and might not ever happen again.  If someone told Snell he could break Bob Gibson's ERA record for a season or strike out 384 batters this year but not make any money doing so, he'd flip you the bird and sit around and play video games.  World Series?  Forget it, they would just view it as extra work.  I think LeBron would play for free the rest of this summer if he thought he had a chance at another title. I'm not sure where the NHL is in regards to restarting their season because it's...the NHL.  But it wouldn't surprise me if they got their act together and figured out a way to finish, it certainly looks like they're trying harder. And you know the NFL is going to play come hell or high water.  The NFL will not miss a week.  They will start on time.  Because they all know there's too much on the line and that by the end of this summer that people will look to their league as something that can bring people together and help them heal.  People will go ballistic if the NFL start date gets pushed back or if games are missed.  But baseball not happening is seemingly being met with apathy from the general sports fanbase.   @#$% you, MLB.  I'm not saying @#$% you forever, but for right now in this very moment, @#$% you.  @#$% you for being so far behind in everything.  @#$% you for being the last sport to make a statement on George Floyd, only doing so because people noticed you didn't and they called you out on it.  @#$% you players, @#$% you owners, @#$% you all.  @#$% you for not seizing a golden opportunity when you had one because you can't see past your stupid @#$%ing paychecks and your dumbass collective bargaining agreement.  @#$% you for not being able to put your differences aside to be able to play in a time where your fellow countrymen would love nothing more than to watch a game and forget about a pandemic and civil unrest.  @#$% you for not being there when we actually needed you.
    • This came up on my suggestions. Pretty good cover by some youngsters.
