    No brainer, I take coach A (Self). But that dumb ranking by ESPN is supposed to be "right now" not last 8 years. But even right now I'd still take Self.

    Agreed on both counts.

    I don't know what right now means, and of course they don't define it, but in the last three tournaments, Self has eight wins and three conference championships, while Coach K has three wins, first-round losses to 14 seed Mercer and 15 Lehigh, and zero conference championships.

    Coach K's best days are behind him. An all time great coach, but if right now is the criteria Self wins that one pretty easily.

    So you're saying I'm not wrong, but I shouldn't get to point it out? I guess that's understandable, given that this board has had to put up with 2000 posts of twocoach's drivel over the last 6 months.

    Not that you shouldn't get to, just that it's funny to see you whine about it.

    It would be hard for me to take any coach over Self in a ranking like this. Calipari recruits a bit better but Self is vastly superior in game.

    I was referring more to the butthurt being displayed at phog.net

    Tuco has not been a good KU rep on this board. He has his moments, and just when you think he turns the corner, he trolls everyone again. One step forward, two steps back.

    Yeah, he's basically managed to make this board unable to discuss Kansas respectfully or objectively, which has been pretty frustrating and off-putting for people like me, who value both.
