Dude you just blew my mind.
I guess that's better than your peacock.
As far as Pitinos coaching tree,
mick Cronin, Billy Donovan, Kevin keates, Kevin Willard all > Travis ford
And it’s not even close. Not sure if Donovan ever was an assistant under Pitino or played for him though.
Damn an after a little google search Jeff van gundy, herb sendek, frank vogel, and Orlando Smith were all also assistants under Pitino at one time or another.
I just always heard that gingers don't have souls....
that's true. I dance to the 1st and 3rd beats.
Donovan played for Pitino at Providence and was an assistant under Pitino at UK
I have one of the original prints of "home court advantage". Apparently he painted more than one, anyway BD, Pitino, Bernadette, and Tubby are all hanging on my wall.
That’s a good question.
I was alive for many of the Tark golden years. I don’t remember them. Honestly, I barely remember Pitino at UK, though I’ve rewatched a lot of those 95-97 years once I got older.
When I think “mid major”, I think about it in the stereotypical sense, teams that by and large lack the talent and resources that high majors have, but may have great roster construction and coaching that make them good basketball teams - think Sister Jean’s Loyola squad, Shaka’s VCU Cinderella.
I forget the stat, but the correlation of having a first round prospect on your team and winning the natty is near 100% in the modern era. Thats not to say that mid majors wouldn’t have that, but it’s a high ‘barrier to entry’ for 90% of D1 programs.
There are some outliers. Gonzaga is the most obvious - and definitely not who I had in mind when I made the comment-, but Witchita State and Memphis are also others that collected high major, NBA talent and rosters in recent memory. All 3 had good chances to win, but taking less than a half dozen teams like that against the field still gives you a low probability.
Now that I’ve said this, Few will probably cut down the nets this year.
Kevin's post followed by lurker's post less than 1 minute later at 1:46 AM is perfect.
The eventual champion will likely be one of the top 3 KenPom teams when the dust settles at the end of the regular season.
I'd take Duke, KU, Baylor, Butler or MSU over the field.
The Kemba UConn team, the Napier UConn team and the Melo Cuse teams are the only exceptions.
Looking the other way.I thought I was being smart by betting the field against three teams , and I ended up wearing a Grayson Allen avatar for a whole season. I Mean this in the nicest possible way. Go F^ck yourself.
I meant the ones that played for him at UK. Pelphrey and Masiello.
Moving the goal posts I see. Don’t be surprised if you don’t see a 1 seed in the FF.
