Seth Greenberg's Lefty Driesell impersonation

By Dan Steinberg

The Post's Virginia Tech beat writer, Mark Giannotto, wrote earlier this season about how Seth Greenberg turns to his famous coaching friends, including Lefty Driesell, for in-season guidance. Interesting, Greenberg specifically credited Driesell with helping his in-game strategy in Tuesday's win over Maryland, trusting Jeff Allen when he gets in foul trouble instead of yanking him out.

More interestingly, it turns out that Greenberg can do an excellent Lefty Driesell impersonation.

when hokies win the NIT, Greenberg can do another Lefty impersonation from '72..."We're number 2!"

The Hokies could never acheive a goal as lofty as winning the NIT. Not even if Jeff Allen had 12 fouls to give every game, like he did last night.

@JohnnyBlades - VT won the NIT in '73 (the year after MD) and again in '95. Please come up with some real excuses.

^ Correction for the whiner: **THESE Hokies, Seth Greenberg's Hokies** will never accomplish anything of consequence because their coach blows.

Just stating the facts after watching last night's game unravel...I'm not in the habit of making excuses, since my school is the home of the reigning NCAA Champs, son
