Or is he intentionally being obtuse? If you ask me, he just Dohn't get it.
In his latest Q&A session, he has a couple humdingers about his view of the UCLA basketball program:in the past you've criticized the BB team for its overall lack of "athleticism," something that could stand it the way of banner #12. What exactly do you mean?
To me, it is a lacking in agility when compared to a few of the other elite teams. I believe UCLA has the talent and athleticism to reach the Final Four, but against Memphis and North Carolina and perhaps Texas and Kansas the Bruins don't have as much physical, naturally-gifted talent.
I guess Dohn wasn't paying attention to our victories in the tournament over Memphis in 2006 and Kansas in 2007.Rank the top 5 coaches in college basketball, in your opinion.
Yikes, that is hard because I don't know about some guys at mid-major programs who may be stellar. Also, are you talking about within a game, or running a program? Big different. John Calipari can recruit better than nearly everyone, but I question his ability to match x's and o's in a game.
If you're talking overall program, I will go with Roy Williams, Rick Pitino, Mike Krzyzewski, Billy Donovan and Jim Boeheim.
This response sheds some light on his opinion of Ben Howland.
Jim freakin' Boeheim? Are you kidding me?
