Comparing UVA vs Duke job is hillarious

Take off your orange and blue glasses. Cut away the current rosters (though even Duke's with a down years puts ours to shame).

Duke is a better job. Period. The shameful part of Coach P's regime in Durham is that a turd sandwich
with a crack problem should be able to get top 10 recruiting classes every single year at Duke. Brand, academics (including the NCCU appeal for those who need it), history, relationship with Nike, practice facility, and Cameron is a better size for WBB than JPJ. Think of it this way...if this were MBB and both jobs opened would NBA coaches be applying for Duke HC? 100%. For UVA HC? Maybe...or people would recognize the tremendous work Tony has done and realized repeating it is not easily done.

Now add in the specifics for Lawson that the Duke admin will certainly have her boss in Boston at the top of the list to replace Kaptain Kourageous. You think if she asks for anything reasonable they are going to say no and risk damaging their chances on the next one to sit in that seat.

I love UVA. Love Charlottesville. Bleed orange and blue. But Duke is a top 5 job. We are a nice one (top 25 at best with it slipping slightly as *whispered tone* JPJ ages).

Now that doesn't mean the current staff or any staff shouldn't aim to beat Duke every single year. Even as a critic of the current regime, I can't help but applaud Coach Thompson and the staff for a win vs Duke this year (even when they were down). Hopefully not fools gold.
