Just behind John Wooden
He uses the tired "he's done more with less" argument too. Apparently never looking at recruiting rankings.
To be fair the other posters point out how insane that thought is.
Well the son of a bitch did "less with more" today.
"I think the world is run by C students"
Top 5 coaches in Bo Ryan's own conference currently (results based):
1) Tom Izzo (duh)
2) Tubby Smith (natty)
3) Thad Matta (multiple ff's and bt titles)
4) Tom Crean (ff and building a power)
5) maybe Bo Ryan? (top 4 streak)
On his Wikipedia page: "If Bo Ryan owned a restaurant, you would not be able to get drunk as you would be tossed out after the first round."
Don't think -- it can only hurt the ballclub
I wouldn't put T Smith in the top 5
Bo Ryan has never lost a game in the Final Four. Izzo has lost five times in the final weekend of the tourney. I think that speaks for itself.
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
WTF is this shit?
"haven't read all the responses but it has been noted that Michigan State runs a program like Wisconsin's, but with better athletes."
Couldn't be farther from the truth.
i mean anytime u can retain a coach who continually pumps out big ten tournament finals appearances and never makes any tourney noise, you have to do it
Better athletes, better coaches, better track record, better results...
So yeah, very similar except for the important parts.
I based that on nine sweet sixteens, four elite eights, and the national championship. I agree he struggles mightily in BT, but I went back before Bo Ryan invented basketball.
Yes, except Wisky under performs their seed expectations and MSU exceeds theirs. Except for that.
