    Re: Athlon's top coaches

    Lane Kiffin at number 4 in the top coaches under 40 is a joke. I don't think he has done very much at all and now he is in a place where recruits just fall into your lap. I would rather wait a couple years to evaluate how good of a coach he really is.

    My top 3 for basketball:
    1. Coach K
    2. Izzo
    3. Self

    Two Elite Eights in the last three years, at a mediocre job. ISU has two Elite Eights in its entire history.

    Say what you will about the person. (I certainly have.) Say what you will about his coaching ability. (I certainly have.) But you can't argue with the results.

    Im just saying he may be a phenomenal recruiter but when it comes to in game coaching, Fred blows him away. That said i still think he's a good coach.

    Nice to see Fred getting some good pub as a top 10 coach under 40. Congrats to CFH!

    I think that says more about his recruiting abilities than coaching.

    Is recruiting not a huge part of being a good college basketball coach?

    Results? Head-to-head, 2-1, the Mayor.

    Drew did have the fortune of facing UK later in the tournament this year, after beating the 14, 11, and 10 seeds.

    This is exactly right. For anybody like me whose spent some time in Waco besides just an athletic event I have no idea how he gets 5 star recruits down there, but somehow he does it.

    This. Hard to argue with that even though he has the same coaching style as a NBA coach. But what surprises me is Lon Kruger being so high. So what OU has faced sanctions. Did they even make the NIT since he's been there?

    Lane Kiffin??? He's got all of 25 wins despite coaching at the cream of the cream of college football programs. Hate the guy.

    Also, ouch--what a slap in the face to Travis Ford and Gillispie to have the TCU basketball coach rated higher than them.
