    Ed Cooley should be top 10 for the way he has turned around the PC program from where Keno left it.

    2 of the top 5 coaches had a huge affiliation with Providence... Donovan played for them, a Final 4 team.. Pitino coached them to the Final 4.

    Think Stevens regrets going to the NBA yet?

    A year and a half in and the Celtics aren't any closer to being good.

    I think his job is more than safe at least. He's gotten a lot of praise from around the league but with no talent, you can't accomplish much. Not sure where the Celtics are gonna find talent eithet.

    David Blatt is very good, he is an anti hip hop coach, so the media were not fans, he shoving it to everybody with 7 wins in a row now.

    Too many transfers, he has a new team every year. The dude on UNLV is a good kid and a good player and Altman couldn't keep him.
    He coaches them incredibly well, but really weird how he can't keep players.

    Like he runs too loose of a program or something. I don't know

    He has some extra time to get that hip hop thing going...

    many of his former cab players say he was out of his league as the head guy...

    I did bet Wichita at half just because I could not live with not betting this amazing coaching display going on.

    Beilein takes out Pitino.
    Marshall and Cal going to take each other out.
    Izzo and Self going to take each other out.

    The committee really did a bad job this year with Wisconsin / Villanova yesterday and Wichita /Kentucky today.

    Shaka still struggling with the different kind of kids/mentality he now has a Texas. I think he'll get back on top in a few years.
    Crean and Boeheim are the only 2 that had a really rough year, but last year Boeheim was in Final Four so he is still getting it done.

    Marshall needed a few more timeouts, but had to take em earlier to stop runs.

    Stevens has proven to be an outstanding NBA coach as well as college, apparently there were some rumors linking him to the IU job, he quickly shot them down

    If I was IU, I would give Marshall a call, and if he says no I would call him every fucking day anyway in hopes he changes his mind

    The last 2 possessions by Wichita st has me dropping the power rating for marshall.

    2 horrible sets. Down 1 with the ball. Your best offensive player doesn't get a shot off.

    Yes no time outs but are you telling me these coaches don't have set plays for situations like this????

    Horrid

    Larry Eustachy is easily top 20. He almost won the MW with 7 players & a walk-on this year. Everywhere he's gone he's won.

    Brad Underwood took 306th ranked offense, turned them into 6th ranked offense over the course of a season. Same players. Pretty impressive. When he left SFA, they dropped from top 25 on Kenpom to barely top 200.

    Have to keep in mind that if the ability to recruit was removed from the equation, 75% of the "big names" would never make a list. If we're talking about pure coaching alone (where certain generally accepted criteria) don't need to be considered, we would be looking at very different lists of names that many have never heard of or really paid attention to.

    The only determinations that can be made are... Who gets the most out of what they have?... and the flipside... Who does the least with the most?

    In the end, we have to recognize that this is still a results-oriented business where certain measurables (Win %, postseason success, etc.) inevitably need to be factored in as well. Otherwise, names just kinda start to exist in space without meaning.

    Skewed! Travis Ford played slow. Underwood was 1-8 against Kansas, West Virginia, Baylor, and Iowa State. How about telling the whole story? Oklahoma State was a sieve on defense ranking #306! Henry Iba is rolling over in his grave.

    Matta is one year maybe two away from getting the heave ho. Not agreeing with the thinking that goes into personally but CBB is a tough biz.
