but i totally don't get that hire if it were to happen.(Teel said its far from a done deal)
If anyone can explain that one to me, i'd appreciate it. I like TOB, seems like a good guy, military guy who demands discipline.
Seems like an odd fit. Unless they plan on hiring him after they fire London.
You know this was not Londons choice. I am sure he wouldnt have hired his replacement if given a choice.
Its karma for bringing in Simms to take over for Rocco.
Better watch your back Mikey.
LOL. How will The Dream recruit now? Just contradicted their primary anti-VT recruiting pitch: "Their coaches are old and white."
Maybe Littlepage will borrow a page from London's playbook and flip flop the HC each game.
Haha can you imagine how contentious those coaches meetings could be with London staring his replacement right in the face. That could be worse than a QB controversy. The players don't know who to listen to, especially if TOB and The Chosen One disagree on something. They could easily start blowing off London because they know he's gone at that point.
sounds like succession planning....and as a VT fan - I like it. A couple more years of London followed by TOB would be just fine with me.

How was I the first to upvote this? Well done.
Did you hear Hoo got arrested? Thomas Jefferson would be proud!
I just posted that it was a good idea to have a coach for their coach...I may be getting pummeled with down votes? I'm not going to look for a little while...but in all honesty, that is what this is. They are bringing in a coach to coach London and at the same time not keeping London and not risk losing all the recruits they think they are going to get in 2014.
I can't see TOB doing this unless he has some idea that the job is his if London is as big a boob as everyone thinks he is.
Hahaha.... just yesterday someone here posted that their hoo friend called coach london a "head coach in waiting". The reason it's funny is because it's true!
Bringing in TOB to be the "real" head coach just underscores the entire situation.
A coach to coach a coach. UVA is a circus with nothing but clowns.
I'm all for it if he can keep Mike and his mini me from acting like complete jack asses during a game. They are an embarrassment to the whole state.
I don't think it's fair to limit the embarrassment to just the state.
"Tom, you handle coaching this week. I just need to concentrate on calling the time outs. I gotta get better at that. Oh....and, of course, I'll handle yelling at the refs. Together, we've got this. "

And if the job would be TOB's after ML, then what motivation does he have to teach him how to coach?
Maybe to not let London burn any shirts and further damage the program he has put further behind...just maybe there is someone smart at the helm? They screwed up by not "telling"AG he was not allowed to burn shirts in a season it was obvious he was canned, they would have had many of those guys last year, and that would likely have gotten them to 6 wins.
When I initially heard about the TOB rumor, I immediately pictured this....
