    When you have all the advantages that K has had compared to the other great coaches I'm really surprised he hasn't done more.

    The record for being the #1 seed and not making it past the sweet 16 K set seems to say so.

    Does that stat mean that they truly failed more than any other school over that decade?

    Looks like Lebron is trying to get K to come back. Just saw on his twitter account: "Babysitter Wanted" ~ Experience with folding towels and lacing shoes a must. Also must be able to roll out balls on court.

    Roy has done much much much better.

    So winning a National Title is "less than stellar," in your opinion?

  • kato_karma.v4 Feb 28, 2013

    Back on topic.

    kiwi's NCAAT results, since taking on the USA Basketball stint, has been quite less than stellar:

    The rules changed for K. Had K lost 9 of 12 players he would not have won either.

    I know that this is hard for people with your limited IQ to comprehend, but please try.

    His reference was in to USA basketball solely, yours was in reference to careers coaching as a whole. While I don't speak on his behalf, that was what I made the comments out to be.

    You must have trouble following the flow of discussing, as I was alluding to UNC's recent run of NIT appearances. Try and keep up markie, I know that can be difficult especially when you are on here just to troll other individuals comments.

    So Larry Brown wasn't able to win in two championships in the same year. Coach K was.

    Maybe because we are talking about college hoops, a subject that most Dookies are sore about since they have been irrelevant for a decade.

    Their only successful season was with an illegal player.

    From Wikipedia:

    The close outcome of 2000 and the humiliating results of 2002 prompted a number of NBA superstars to agree to join the team for the FIBA Americas Championship 2003, which the squad was required to participate in to qualify for the 2004 Summer Olympics. The team easily cruised to a first-place finish, earning it a spot in Athens, Greece the following summer.

    However, the dominant team that competed in 2003 could not be kept together. Nine of its 12 players elected not to participate in Athens. The revamped 2004 team consisted of some young NBA stars early in their careers, such as Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, but also included recent Most Valuable Players Tim Duncan and Allen Iverson. The team was coached by Larry Brown.

    Besides, he was busy wining an NBA title that season.

    Uhhh -- Elight 8 or better the past 8 seasons...

    UNC = 6...dook = 1

    When you see that in writing, reality sinks in.

    Do we really need to rehash this argument? If you aren't aware that the level of talent on the Intl'1 level has risen across the board, then you have no business discussing Olympic basketball period.

    Would you prefer the US still use college players and get their **** pushed in by the likes of Italy, Brazil, Argentina, etc? Because if so, then you are probably the only person the US that thinks that we should do that.

    And to suggest that Coach K doesn't do any coaching on the USA just further demonstrates your ignorance and lack of understanding for basketball in general.

    getting knocked out of the NCAAT at the Sour 16 or earlier 7 out of 8 seasons...

    dookie fans are desperate (for something other than another FLAMEOUT).
