Greenberg stuff is interesting.Katz.Dana.
It seems that Jim Weaver was concerned about losing so many assistants (former Penn Stater James Johnson said he wouldn't stay even if Virginia Tech matched Clemson's offer), and that he had decided not to renew Greenberg next year so it made no sense to bring in three assistants for a year.
There is some sportswriter talk that this is bad timing, but I don't buy that.
Plus, it may relieve Virginia Tech of the temptation to hire a retread, and go with someone like Pat and BOB. I think the circumstances at Penn State (late vacancy, Sandusky scandal) enabled the administration to go a little outside the box, and I think that was a good thing.
Last, there is some talk in Dana's story that Virginia Tech underachieved. Does anyone among our Penn State is a sleeping giant crowd look at Virginia Tech and say 'that's a program that should be at the top of the ACC?'
