Sword, part II

Caulton Tudor says it better than I did regarding Virginia's new coach to match its new arena:

"A nationally prominent coach would be a valuable insurance policy for such an investment. In essence, a half-empty new building would be just another University Hall with bells, whistles and support beams. Tubby Smith might cost $2 million or $3 million per year, but what's a couple million or so a year for a coach when he works at a place on the fat side of $120 million?"

Tudor's answer: UVa. should take a look at Jeff Capel.

Stark Fist has a lengthy analysis of the overall situation here.
