One of my colleagues is a major benefactor of U Dub MBB. He actually has had dinner at Mike and Tricia's home in Madison Park. 

He hated Romar but loves Hopkins. He is pretty certain Hopkins will not go to Syracuse.

Is that 100% certain. Likely not. But it is first person intel as opposed to the wild ass guess of some chucklehead on Scoop.

https://www.seattletimes.com/sports/uw-husky-basketball/the-huskies-have-their-coach-of-the-future-in-mike-hopkins-but-theyre-just-getting-started/

And one of my good friends worked in athletics at Syracuse. As he tells it,  Jimmy B told Hopkins to go make some money and get some experience so he'd be ready to take over the orange once Jimmy retires. He believes Hopkins will come home when the time comes.

Also not 100% but probably as good as any first hand Intel shared with the wild asses here on scoop.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Good lord they're doing anything they can to convince themselves Wojo is coming. That level of obsession...did we win a national championship I forgot about in the past 5 years?

You know I have no idea whether Wojo is staying or going, whether to Virginia Tech or anywhere else, but I will say that this entire thread and its links to the Virginia Tech tweets and posts has  been hugely entertaining.
Were we this bad when Buzz left? Will we be this bad if we are looking for a new coach (which I hope we aren’t? I really hope not.

The Va Tech fans have been quite entertaining. They probably also think they’d have gotten Buzz even if he hadn’t been “encouraged” to seek other employment. ;D

Best tweets ever. I’ll be sure to hit him up around 3am tonight when I’m half in the bag to ask him where the flight tracker is

I spent the better part of Friday morning getting into it on Twitter with many Va Tech fans and Lunch Pail himself.
Should have been the bigger man but I just couldn't help giving them all a massive reality check.

I'm just fascinated by the intensity.  As I don't do twitter, I'm just reading what people post here anyway.

Same here: one time hoops athletic trainer still close to people there and goes back frequently. Hopkins stayed around until Boeheim decided to extend to coach Buddy.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay
