Is to find our Terry Holland. I know that's going way back, but Virginia was nothing in basketball before he arrived. He built steadily, won an ACC Tournament around Wally Walker, then started bringing in guys like Jeff Lamp. He grew the program, then he landed Sampson and became elite. Even went to a Final Four after Ralph graduated. Continued to win consistently until he retired.

No idea who that is, but if UVa could do it, and is now doing it again, there is zero reason why we can't. Ga Tech was horrid before Cremins arrived. It can be done.


Of course it can be done. Some people will continue to

make excuses, but that's all they are. We may never be on the level of UNC or Dook, but there is another level just below that yet above where we have been that should be well within our reach.

And if we can get to that level consistently

then that special elite player may give you a serious look, and boom....you're elite for a period.
