Does anybody really believe that Hernandez wouldn't have been an Olympian if he stayed with Vig? It sucks that Vig left Texas but hernandez should have moved to Charlottesville the second he graduated.

Did Manzano chase the departing Vig?

Was his career doomed?

Far from it. The Olympic silver shows that John Cook did just fine - thank you very much.
