Friday links

It's Friday, so smile about it. Here's some reading.

David Teel of the Newport News Daily Press thinks that Virginia Tech's defensive coordinator, Bud Foster, would be a great fit for the coaching vacancy at East Carolina, where Skip Holtz left for South Florida.

In December, Foster agreed in principle to an annuity package worth a total of about $1 million if he is the Hokies' defensive coordinator five years from now. But I agree with Teel: Foster would be a great fit at ECU, and because he's expressed interest in being a coach some day, this seems like a great opportunity for him. Stay tuned, folks.

Here's some other interesting news out of Blacksburg: Virginia Tech's women's basketball team knocked off No. 10 North Carolina, 79-64, on Thursday night for its first win over the Tar Heels in more than 25 years.

The Hokies' men's team will travel to Tallahassee, Fla., to take on No. 25 Florida State. If you're going to be at the game on Saturday night, you might want to bring some extra cash because the university has taken an admirable step in deciding to take up a collection for Haiti in the aftermath of the catastrophic earthquake there. And that's undoubtedly a cause everyone can get behind.
