Gillen Is Gone

My Virginia Tech colleagues here on the blog, Zach and Addison, have not been too charitable about the fact that the only ACC school in Virginia that has won a conference game is Virginia Tech and not Virginia. They disregard the fact that Virginia has been banged up and missed their leading scorer for two of the top ten teams they have played, and Tech has played a much weaker schedule thus far, UVA playing three top ten teams (Duke, Wake Forest, and Georgia Tech) including two on the road.

Nonetheless, I believe Gillen is done. At best, he will make a run at the tourney later in the ACC schedule and will come up short like he did last year. If that comes to pass, he will be gone regardless of the fact that everyone loves his personality. His luck hasn't changed as far as injuries and he has proven unable to coach a team with lots of potential but very raw talent in the ACC.
