Re: So, had the chance to chat with somebody very close to the JHU program


Agree with some points but seems very glass half empty. Michigan didn't get Tillman. They got an assistant, although purportedly a good one. Questions remain about how he does as the head man, his assistants or if he will be a better hire than ours. Frankly, the last Michigan staff may have out recruited our last staff. Neither are there going forward. It is also way too early to say the Big 10 has passed the ACC. Even with the spread of the game, I think Virginia has some inherent recruiting advantages over Michigan that the last staff clearly squandered. Charlottesville's location is a significantly shorter driving distance to the majority of the East coast hot beds than Michigan. In some cases, it is only 2-3 hours vs 9-11. We also have tradition with multiple NCAA championships, Final 4s, a fast paced free wheeling style of play, & UVA lax alumni as a resource sprinkled all over the country. Nothing is certain, but Lars has advantages. Let's hope he utilizes them & returns us to where we belong.
