    cbs article- Biggest Cheaters in Basketball??

    I found it interesting.

    Critical Coaches: Who is perceived to be the biggest cheater in the sport? - CBSSports.com

    Scott Drew is on the list. I wonder who said that about him because that is pretty funny. I kinda wished it was FH.

    If you had asked me yesterday what the results of this would be, I can't imagine I would have been too far off. Always funny to see the Kentucky fans out in full force, though, defending Calipari.

    The fact that both Calipari and Drew each got FIVE TIMES more votes than a guy who has been caught cheating multiple times sort of says it all, doesn't it?

    Doesn't really sound like something he'd say. Although I would assume Self, if he was included, voted for Drew. Their handshakes, after Self gives Drew a free coaching lesson, are always absolute fly-bys.

    And this quote from the "Overrated Coaches" column is great: On Scott Drew: "If Bill Self had his talent the past three years, they're winning the national championship at least once." I actually hope it was Bill Self that said that one.

    I wouldn't surprise me if Calipari went to the NBA in a year or two and UK gets in trouble the next year for something he did

    On high-major coaches in general: "They all [expletive] cheat. Every high-level coach cheats."

    McDermott????

    Wouldn't be surprised if true, however I think coaches cheat more than others.

    Also noticed we played against 3 of the top 4 "cheaters" according to the coaches. (Calipari, Drew, Calhoun)

    That's an impressive list of used car salesmen. UK has the Sales Mgr in their showroom.

    He'll know when to leave, that's for sure. I actually think he's in a pretty safe spot for now, though. On a level playing field, he's likely going to get the kid he wants. So he only really needs to cheat if someone else is cheating too. Because, if someone wants cash, banners above the court and flat-screens in the lockers don't mean ****.

    He already tried that and it was a complete failure. If UK gets in trouble in a couple of years he will step down/fired, take a gig announcing games, then get another great job after a year break.

    The top two are just such a big surprise

    I'm surprised Boeheim isn't in the list; everything that was said about UConn being a dumb is true at Syracuse x 50. Plus with all of the shady Bernie Fine stuff that somewhat chipped away at Boeheim's stature.

    Funny someone said that "everyone cheats." If you do something yourself, you are more likely to think other people do too.

    Even if Cal cheated in the past, does he really need to anymore?

    Judging from this list there's a lot of jealous coaches out there.
