    Old Rats a great coach, no doubt . His record speaks for its self . But .... Lol BUT , its the hypocrisy of the natl' media and the national slurpfest that just gets annoying as heck. His ability to win is only surpassed by his ability to discover the most crybaby , annoying, unlikable basketball players in the nation .
    They get so hugely protected by the zebra's it hard to beat them. That adds to the dislike also . Did I mention flopping ?

    For those complaining about the block call when Kennard drove late it was the correct call. The rule clearly says the defender cannot be moving forward. SC's defender got in position and then moved forward when Kennard started his shot.

    Kennard got a rough call on his 5th foul. Not sure how he fouled with the offensive player backing into him.

    I agree on the block call, the defender was still stepping up when Kennard left his feet. Didn't see the 5th foul.

    Hard to believe there was a sketchy call in the NCAA Tournament.

    This is exactly how you can measure the greatest of Coach K and DUKE since he has been there.. When everyone is so happy to see them lose and, they try their hardest to come up with reasons they aren't that good i.e.( Billy and Patriots )

    Assuming these numbers are correct and I gave no reason to believe that they arent...any one else shocked that Cal has coached more NCAA games, by a lot, than any other coach?

    They are correct, not including this year's tourney, and this is just since 2005. I'm not surprised at all, but I do think as much of the story of that ranking is the number of games coached in the Dance in this 12 year span.
