    I'm not surprised Jon Rothstein was the guy who ended up choosing Hoiberg. Rothstein loves him some Hoiberg.

    Also, Calipari won at UMass and Memphis and was caught with multiple recruiting violations after he left those programs. When is the NCAA going to realize it's probably happening at Kentucky too?

    I don't like Rothstein's pick of Miller with Arizona, but love his Freddy pick obviously.

    I don't understand. How does one rate accuracy of subjective lists with made with (apparently) different criteria.

    Of course I like the CBS list because it rates Fred higher, but I couldn't tell anyone it's more "accurate" with a straight face.

    There's a difference. CBS lists coaches they'd want leading a program. Basically who would you want to hire. ESPN lists coaches based on their results. Different criteria. Both are interesting. Both are pretty accurate.

    Really...Mad Fran in the top 25 for ESPN is accurate? If you say so....

    Mad Fran was 33. I guess I should specify that the list was mostly accurate. I would have had mad Fran a bit lower and hoiberg at 12 or 13.

    I like how 90% of the comments are just a coaches name followed by exclamation points.

    Good little write-up from Rothstein:

    Why him?
    No one gave Iowa State a thought five years ago. Today? The Cyclones are coming off three straight appearances in the NCAA Tournament and a Sweet 16 trip last March. Many wondered how Hoiberg would do when he returned to his alma mater in 2010 with zero head coaching experience, but he's quickly dismissed all doubters. "The Mayor" is as good an X's and O's coach as there is in college basketball and gives his players the freedom they so desperately crave on the offensive end. He treats his players like they're professionals, and that's something you don't see at most college programs. Another thing to like about Hoiberg? He's proven he can build a program through unconventional methods. Iowa State has taken 12 transfers since Hoiberg's arrival four years ago, but he's also quietly doing a good job with kids out of high school as well. Georges Niang should be in for an All-Big 12 first-team type season as a junior. Monte Morris led the nation in assist-turnover ratio as a freshman last year. There's only one type of trajectory right now in Ames -- upward. -- Rothstein

    The media loves Cal. There will be a point where the NCAA will say "ok Cal, you're not giving us much of a choice" and will has to start an investigation. At that point Cal leaves and the media talks about how it's just a weird coincidence that last three schools he was at ended up getting sanctions. Or they'll just not talk about it at all.

    Sorry to bring up old info, but I've read similar posts to this before but my memory eludes me. If he was caught with violations at both programs, what were the penalties? And if he just keeps on winning at Kentucky, they obviously didn't affect his career or future success any. If they would find more, seems it wouldn't really matter in the long run. Just curious.

    Easy. You look at whichever list has Hoiberg rated higher, and that's the more accurate list.

    Say what you want about the caliber of men on the list above CFH, but those are some heavy hitters, coaching-wise, up there :shocked:

    Calipari has never had any penalty brought against him. UMass got in trouble for Camby taking money from an agent and Memphis got in trouble for playing a player who was eligible at the time but was retroactively ruled ineligible by the NCAA.
