In other words, Lynnsanity, you like the unscrupulous ones. All the guys you named in the first group (except Mike White and Barnes) have been in serious NCAA trouble or currently have a big cloud over their program due to recruiting practices.
To each their own, I prefer a clean program.
We’ll never know, but imo, if MA was at UK and used the same tactics as Calipari, he’d have more championships than Calipari.
I really like Mike a lot but I don’t think he has the charisma to coach a place like Kentucky. You need to be a CEO type. One who knows how to coach and promote. Mike has surrounded himself with assistants of like personalities. He needs a real Dog recruiter like Scott Edgar was for Nolan!
I think you should take a wider view of your statement.
Cal is probably the least best coach in the SEC and country as far as that goes. Always has all the talent with the NBA pro prospects and how many games does he win or banners? Judge that my friend. If that’s what you want no thanks. Top 10 class every year and he talks about how they are young and then the refs come to their rescue in some close games and they make the dance with a 1-4 seed in the dance.
To me that shows just how little coaching the blow hard does. How much of his past are you aware of? Everywhere he has coached they end up on probation for violations handed down by the NCAA.
Pearl. Well if you want a liar he is your man. His assistant coach that has been fired may look good in stripes soon! The money wagon made a drop off to a few players one of which had to sit out last year and part of this year. But he is your man!
Barnes got fired at Texas for losing. Yes he is a good coach but he’s getting it done with upperclassman now. That team went through what the hogs are going through now 2 and 3 years ago. Honest good man.
Wade he’s been mentioned in the FBI probe just give the snot nosed punk time and he will show his true colors. Birds of a feather flock together. I guess it’s an accident he landed all of that talent with what he has accomplished as a coach. I have some ocean front property for sell in central Arkansas come take a look during the overflow.
Old Honest Ben Howland he also has a show cause in his back pocket for being a cheat. How much did they pay the Perry’s? Not just no but ---- no!
Mike White well he will start having a team he recruited himself next season so we will see. He sure isn’t lighting the world up right now at 13-11
Oh well there better things to think about
But what you want is a cheater win at all cost no thanks!
Black clouds include Sins of the past with other programs causing sanctions / probation after the coaches left.
Currently involved in or mentioned in recent FBI investigation & NCAA doing their follow up investigations with access to FBI data, verdict still out.
