I cannot wait to drub his UVA-grad arse at Miami...
Most of the Hokie faithful are breathing a sigh of relief over this hire... because, as Randy Shannon has proved, without an Erickson/Johnson/Davis type coach who will let the inmates run the asylum (read - blow thick lines of coke off of South Beach hookers, rape, pillage and stay crunkin all the time), Miami just doesn't work that well for college football.
The fans are some of the worst, fair-weather losers you've ever met, the areas is so sports saturated that the Marlins could win the World Series tomorrow and no one would show up to opening day (I've been there and seen THAT) and the stadium is 45 minutes from campus. Beyond that, the school really doesn't have the money to improve their facilities, improve the program... so if you're a 5-star murderer, why on earth would you go to Miami with some "plays-by-the-rules" coach when you can skeet-skeet-skeet all over the university president's daughter at Auburn, LSU, Alabama (so long as you bench 400 lbs and run a 4.3 forty)?
Al Golden (for as terminally Hoo as he is) has, to his detriment at Miami, a smidgen of integrity and his south beach "tune up" for Penn State will either turn him to the dark side or end in typical 7-5 Carquest Bowl mediocrity.
