I lost track of things and got to wondering who was the Naismith Coach of the year. And it turned out it was the Providence coach. But then I found the top 10 finalists and was stunned that coach Otzelberger wasn't even on the list. Taking a team from 22 losses to 22 wins in one year doesn't even get recognized??? Seems like something's wrong there. Perhaps not winning it is understandable but looking at the list it just doesn't make sense that he's not on the finalist list. Just a rant so not expecting a big long thread to develop but I couldn't find a thread on this board that talked about it. Here are the finalists.
|Mark Adams||Texas Tech||Big 12|
|Ed Cooley||Providence||Big EAST|
|Scott Drew||Baylor||Big 12|
|Steve Forbes||Wake Forest||ACC|
|Greg Gard||Wisconsin||Big Ten|
|Matt McMahon||Murray State||Ohio Valley|
