There's not another coach that would've done a better job with this team...even Kentucky/Calipari, and other great teams like N. Carolina have great coaches who get better talent most years and still have down years and miss the tourney while Thad keeps winning with less.
The biggest blue bloods in the game will win titles with the ability to get the best talent, no matter who our coach is, but as far as the perfect combo of being able to recruit and in-game coach I would take Thad over anyone and I think the only 2 who might be at his level and possibly a little above is Coach K and Izzo....that's it. We might not deserve it, but we have a top 3 coach and those of you who don't appreciate it don't know basketball.
Ed. Please avoid name-calling, especially in the title of your thread. Thanks.
