More evidence of massive underachievement by Texas, UCLA, and LSU.
Teams who made a Final Four from 2017-2019:
Western Kentucky got more 5 stars than everyone in the Big Ten combined outside of MSU and IU.
I would have never guessed...pretty remarkable.
Rick Stansbury is coaching at WKU right now. They've won 27, 20, 20 games in the last 3 years. Haven't reached the NCAAT
Hard to argue that any coach has done a better job the last 5 years than Tony Bennett
I’d say Jay Wright has been better. Shouldn’t punish a coach for recruiting a few 5 stars. Recruiting is part of the job.
I'm not punishing him. He has two titles lol. But it's definitely easier to win when you have better talent, right?
Not sure that you can definitively say that Wright had a lot more talent. Hasn't Virginia had a lot of high 4 stars?
But doesn't some of the credit go to Wright? I don't think it's that much easier to recruit 5 stars to Nova vs. UVA
I’m not sure there’s a noticeable difference between the 20th ranked kid who’s a 5 star and the 35th ranked kid who’s a 4 star.
But even if there is a subtle difference, you just said it—he’s got 2 titles in the last 5 years. That’s double what Tony Bennett has. Two titles is significantly better than one title when we are talking about a 5 year window.
And further, the whole point is to win, so shouldn’t signing a guy who makes it easier to win be part of what makes a great coach?
Bennett has been incredible. But to say it’s “hard to argue” that any coach has done better...well that’s not correct at all. It’s pretty easy to make a logical argument for Wright.
Come on guys... I don't actually think Bennett has done a better job than Wright the last 5 years
Probably 2nd best though
I admittedly haven’t looked at every single record, but I could believe Tony has 2nd best during this period locked up.
