Virginia Tech coach Seth Greenberg was on The Jim Rome Show this afternoon and had this to say about John Calipari:
"This whole Big Blue Nation thing, he plays them like a violin."
Is there a coach more bitter than Greenberg? Well, maybe Stallings. He should probably focus more on being on the right side of the bubble for once.

I will agree that Cal knows his audience VERY well and knows what strings to play to influence the fans.
But as you said, Greenberg needs to worry about making it in the tournament. what has Cal done to him anyway?
Do they play in the same conference? No.
Are they sitting as the #1 team in the nation? No.
I think I have more things to be worried about.
Playing the Big Blue Nation is a big part of the job at Kentucky. Cal does it masterfully. That and convincing yuung men that he has thier best interest at heart are his most important duties.
When was the last time Virginia Tech was relevant in college basketball?
Seriously sour grapes there...
I would suppose it was when Allen Bristow led them to an NIT title over Notre Dame back in the day when the NIT still meant something.....
Probably when they had Ace Custis and we ran through them in the 2nd round of the NCAA tourney.
If Greenberg could recruit or coach like Cal he wouldn't be on my TV every year in March whining about the Selection Committee.
Jealousy is a sad thing.
If you are aware of this guys act he has had for whatever reason a grudge against UK long before Calipari arrived. Always goes out of his way to knock us on an annual basis for no reason that I know of.
Looking forward to ole baldy sourpuss bemoaning his bubble team being left out the night of selection Sunday
Jealousy has run through most of the college basketball landscape. People always want to see the top teams fail i.e Heat, Lakers, Yankees, and now UK. They will take shots anytime they have someone to listen to them. O well we will see you in the tournament....Oops I forgot we are talking about Va Tech
Why does anyone care what this guy says?
This isn't the first time Greenberg has 1) Come off bitter and 2) took a shot at UK. He had some pretty unsavory things to say about the UK job when it came open after either Tubby or Gillispie left can't remember which.
He is just insanely jealous of UK and Cal's success.
Seth Greenburg just proved how little he understands marketing and appealing to fans. Cal knows that BBN has always been crazed and rabid for our Cats. That's why we lead the nation in attendance every year even before Cal.
Allan Bristow ... now that's taking it back to the old school.
If he knew anything about Kentucky he would have known it is a fiddle not a violin. Or maybe a five string banjo.
They're pretty relevant during bubble talk every year.
terrible coach mad at the guy on the throne
WE ARE UK
Cal is not laughing at us, he's laughing with us!
Hokie Pokie doesn't get it, just like millions of others. You have to be here to understand that we were here before Cal, and we are the constant. Cal fits like a glove and steers the ship as we sit back and enjoy the ride. He gets paid well to captain this Big Blue Ship!
Cal if given 2 years could take VaTech to the final four. Greenberg can't even get em in the tourney. I'd be pissed too. BBN was around long before Cal. Plays US? Shit we know the game better than anybody. We know how coaches are but you get results and we'll praise ya. Just don't go getting Seth Greenberg results or you'll wake up at VaTech.
Anyway, Why are they asking Greenberg about Cal?
why did they ask him about Cal? That dude is a douche. Let the haters hate!
PEOPLE LETS LOOK AT IT LIKE THIS JOE B HALL WAS GIVEN HIS HAT WAY TO EARLY. TUBBY WON A NC AND AVG 28 WINS A YR AND WAS GIVEN HIS HAT.
BILLY G LIKE EDDIE SUTTON HAD NO CLUE HOW MUCH P.R. THIS JOB TAKES.
TO COACH AT UK YOU MUST BE A GREAT GREAT GREAT COACH, A DONALD TRUMP LIKE BUISNESS SINCE. A P.R. TYPE MAN TO SAY THE RIGHT THINGS. AND ABOVE ALL THINGS WIN A NC EVERY 4 YRS WITH 2 FINAL FOUR EVERY 3 YRS.
Is this guy the former coach at South FL? What a resume he has. USF & VT. Wow!
Get ready for the annual Hokie Chokie. It's almost bubble time.
BBN is a very hard violin to play. Very few can actually stay in tune. BBN was around long before and will remain long after Cal. BBN plays the violin. This guy doesn't understand what he's saying.
