See: "Other"

Actually, I chose 25 fields and he was #26 and I am lazy. But I thought about it just for this crowd.

As an Iowa fan, I guess I could dream and go with Izzo or Self, but that's not very realistic.

For me personally, I HATE the "new" Big 10 and Todd Lickliter is one of it's worst proponents. I'd take Mike Anderson in a heartbeat, that style of ball could do damage in a league where everybody wants to score 40 points...

I hate to do it to Bill, but I'd take Bob Knight, then Bill Self, then Roy.

Don't think I would take anyone over Anderson right now, but I might be a little biased.

Krzyewski is still the best game coach, he's lost his recruiting edge though.

Jim Boeheim is probably the worst coach on that list. I don't think I've seen anybody else do so little with so much talent.

I'm happy with Self and Calipari though, they are the recruiters par excellence right now.

Given what Self has done here in 5 years, I can't say I'd like anyone else. ESPECIALLY ROY. He wasn't able to do what Self did in 15 years at the same place.

I think Rick Barnes could give him a run for his money in that department. Atleast Boeheim has won the ship.

I'd agree with either Self or Calipari. I hate Calipari but he is probably the best recruiter in the nation right now.

I'm more than happy with Bill Self. Losing him would be far worse than losing Roy was.

Definitely correct about Calipari. This team is rediculously deep. REDICULOUSLY DEEP. And they really haven't played well in this tournament. You can't win without talent, but you can lose with it.

Not really, depends on who you replace him with.

Cal was good before, but he's great this year.

What happened? Before he had WWW.

This year, he added the best recruiter in the nation... Josh Pastner.

Hope we get him back when Arizona hires their new HC.

How is is a a back-to-back champion 1+ years removed from the title not getting a single vote?

If you were in charge of a university.....or better yet, a high school phenom....would you trust Donovan after he did his wishy-washy "I'm leavin' for the NBA.....no, wait, I'm stayin'" routine???

I think that has hurt his reputation and stock tremendously.

I'm just asking who you'd want coaching your team. But in my mind, I think a successful college coach turning down the NBA money BEFORE he fails there like everyone not named Larry Brown... shows a widom and humility that not a lot of others have shown.

Seriously.

I still think Bob Knight is the greatest coach ever, followed pretty close by Coach K. I might be biased, Bob Knight has been a role model and a personal hero of mine for many years. :)

I guess I was looking at it as a long-term situation.

That's why I'd have to say Self over Coach K (he's younger, has more years ahead of him...and can apparently "reach" young kids.

But - if it's one game - maybe Donovan sneaks in - but I'm still not sold on the guy because he hasnt done much outside of the recruiting class that won him two titles.

Outside of that group of kids, he's only made it past the first weekend of the tourney twice (in 7 years)....additionally, he's had 3 NIT years (including the past two seasons) and one year (his first at Florida) that he didnt make the NIT.

Bill Self took a team that lost its starters and has gotten it to the sweet 16. Nuff said.
