Tony Bennett signs 7yr extension at Virginia 


http://www.cbssports.com/colle...7-year-contract


Will Bo coach for another 7 years?  Maybe.
Will TB leave Charlotte for Madison ever?  I'm finding that pretty hard to believe.

good for him!  They appreciate what he is doing, they love living on the East Coast as her family is from that area.  I do not see Tony coming back even if UW offered.

Congrats to TB.  After 7 years he'll still be plenty young enough to do the NBA thing if he wants to.

Would love to see him at UW but, unless something drastic happens, it's not in the cards per others who know him and his family well.

Go Badgers!  On Wisconsin!

Charlotte, Charlottesville.  Kind of like confusing Milwaukee with Eau Claire.

Not really those are both in WI...let's go with Milwaukee and Mankato.

A lot can happen in 7 years. 2 years ago who thought Crean would be on the hot seat?

In 10 years when Bo retires I want a Bo Ryan guy that's familiar with how this program has run under Bo to lead it

For what it's worth, a UVA booster friend asked him if he would leave UVA for UW. TB said he wants to stay in the ACC and that his wife, who loves Charlottesville, is not a big fan of winter in the Midwest. I don't think it's a given that he replaces Bo but I sure want UW to go after him.

Good. Keep him away from the UW job. They can do better than that when Bo retires.

You do not need to keep him away. He would never want the UW job. Wondering who you think is so much better that would go to UW. Providing those names would be nice.

I wouldn't say he's better or worse but I'd prefer to have Greg Gard, Saul Phillips, or another Bo Ryan guy take over the Badgers.

I love Tony and Dick but I want the program to continue to progress as is.

Poor Tony, stuck with a wife like that...

Lucky man that I am, I married a Northern Cali girl who fell in love w/Wisconsin!  She's so intelligent and beautiful.(and her B-day is coming soon...  AND she may read this...  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BABE!!!)

Coach Forever Bo!!!

haha thats funny. Wisconsin is most likely screwed after Bo retires. Your history presumes that you will not hire a good coach and your program will sulk back into the bottom part of the BIG 10. It is history. You can't fight history. At least you will be better than Rutgers right tongue

Last two hires: Dick Bennett, Bo Ryan. Both coaching legends and both got their teams to Final Fours. Yeah....our recent hiring history over the last 19 years has been horrible blah2 I don't think we'll have a tough time filling Bo's slot with an excellent, veteran coach. There's a lot to like about Madison, the University and the hoops facilities. Bo won't leave the cupboard bare.....

It would be beyond stupid to provide names now seeing as how Bo isn't considering retirement any time soon.  People need to get their lips off of Bennett's butt though. One good year does not a good coach make.

Or the countless AD's who have him on a very short list? Or the NBA GM's who have been inquiring? Or the Coaches who send their assistants to his camps and clinics? Does not matter anyway as he will never be interested in that job. UW will hire a very good coach. FYI, Barry Alvarez loves Tony Bennett, Ab Nicholas loves Tony Bennett but they know the entire situation. They know there will be no reason to offer

Id probably go with Saul over Greg right now.

Debating fans of Kentucky, Michigan State, Duke or other D1 programs that have been relevant over the past five years can be kind of fun. Reading smack talk from a fan of program that has been on par with most MAC schools in basketball and worse than most MAC schools in football is simply boring. Perhaps your time would be better served talking smack on the Penn State board or another wannabe program
