    Coaches in the Elite Eight

    Take nothing away from these coaches they are great coaches. It just makes you wonder what the NCAA really stands for when 4 of the 8 head coaches have had known issues in their pasts. Add to that some say that Coach K isnt always on the up and up, who knows on that and some question Scott Drew.

    I think you answered your own comment. You must be able to run the shady perimeter to hit the big time in most cases. Reminds me of politics.

    Re: Coaches in the Elite Eight

    I am just glad Calipari is out. Is he the consensus dirtiest coach in bball? How is Sampson forced out of coaching, but Calipari is just fine?

    Re: Coaches in the Elite Eight

    This is why I am rooting for Butler the rest of the way out. There is no indication that they do things the wrong way. I about puked watching Huggy and Calipari coach it out today.

    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: Coaches in the Elite Eight

    If I could pick any coach from the Elite 8, it would have to be Tom Izzo. The guy just knows how to win, just ask Seth Davis.

    I was going to predict you would say something like that.

    I didnt say everyone that wins is a cheater, I just said half the teams that are in the Elite Eight have coaches that have had issues in the past. These are great coaches, but you have to wonder if they are doing it the right way now.
