Built Stanford from nothing?  Here are his records at Stanford.

2007 Stanford  4 8 0 .333
2008 Stanford  5 7 0 .417
2009 Stanford  8 5 0 .615
2010 Stanford  12 1 0 .923

And then throw in 10-3 at Michigan.  That is a 5-year record of 39-24, that is hardly ELITE.

He had one good year with Andrew Luck as his QB.  Outside of that, I don't see Elite.  And I don't compare/equate NFL to College coaching.  Two completely different ball games.  I would say he has been a successful NFL coach, but to call him an ELITE college coach is premature.

Tate is a guy that every team/coach in America would want.  His hustle and heart is contagious.  I don't remember anyone saying he should be winning the Wooden, but the guy can play with anyone and isn't afraid to do so. Yes, he missed some at the rim, so did Loving and others.

Also, Thad is the winningest coach in the program's history.  Do you remember the Randy Ayers era?  Jim O'Brien?  Thad has taken this program to heights not seen since Fred Taylor won titles in the 60's.  The majority of this team is playing D1 college ball for the first time this year.  Chill out.

Careful, I said this same thing after the Illinois game and got lambasted a little bit.  I didn't have as much of a problem with him last night, his shots just weren't falling.  He seemed to be engaged a little last night.  I mean he was missing layups, and Tate missed a few right at the rim too, on an otherwise great night for him. 

It will be hard for this team to win if Lyle and Loving both aren't scoring.  Kam has been lightning in a bottle, and even AJ pumped in a few 3's.  Next season looks bright, if we can survive the rollercoaster of this year.

I can respect your opinion BlackCoffee, but as my first sentence read, he has taken on that role FOR ME.  And that role means, which I think everyone can agree on, is not maximizing his potential.  It is the frustrating part of knowing the skills are there, but he seems indifferent on the court at times. You can't tell me that you don't see any similarity in the indifference/attitude/hustle, or at the very least body language on the court between Amir and Marc?

Loving has taken on the AMIR role for me this season.  I just watch and shake my head at his lack of any testicular fortitude.  He turns the ball over, and just jogs back with his head down, making no effort to do anything.

I think Lyle has his head up his arse since his benching, but at least on one play where he was stripped rather easily, he hustled back and pin-blocked the layup attempt.  Hey Marc, that is how you handle a turnover, hustle your ass back and make a play on the ball.  Don't give up and pout as you jog back.  Until further notice, you are Amir Loving to me now!

Mitchell is going to be special.  Thanks to the 'all-about-the-student-athletes' NCAA clearinghouse, his development has been delayed.  I think this team would be much closer to top-4 B1G team had he been able to play/learn those first 10-15 games or whatever it was that he had to sit. the NCAA is just such a joke.

Lyle needs to get his head out of his ass.  Ever since Thad sat him the last game, he almost looks like he's sulking on the court these last two games and hasn't been his normal self.  Accept the challenge or shrivel and cower....but time is running out to choose.  Not only should AJ be taking his minutes, but Mickey might be too.

And I have come to the realization that Loving is my Amir this season.  He will take some of the shittiest shots, or go weak to the rack and not get a call, then just put his head down and half jog down the court.  There were a couple of possessions that he had turnovers on, and just jogged down the court and they scored.  I will give Lyle props, when he got picked/stripped, he hustled his ass off and blocked the shot on the other end. Only if our 'leader' would show that same heart/hustle.

That Dom vid gets me every damn time.  Truly amazing, both Dom back at work, and the way every single team member stopped by and hugged him.  Damn it gets me now just typing about it!

That is incorrect BBQ, 2014 announcement:

The Big Ten became the first major college conference to guarantee scholarships across all sports through the duration of an athlete's enrollment at a university.

In a statement released Wednesday, the Big Ten said scholarships won't be reduced or cancelled as long as an athlete "remains a member in good standing with the community, the university and the athletics department." The Big Ten also said it would guarantee an athlete may return to school at any time on an athletic scholarship if the athlete's pursuit for an undergraduate degree is "interrupted for a bona fide reason."
