    He's 230-49 at Kentucky, that's a .824 winning percentage.

    He has had the #1 recruiting class for the 10 years, he should be at .900. Yes, I know I am exaggerating on the 10 years in a row.

    I agree with you, that need to produce results because of the recruits that they get.

    But I think they are producing the results. There's even a bad NIT year included in that record which skews it a little, but regardless it's not bad or frustrating to be a UK fan.

    Yeah, other than a lack of ships with the talent they have, I can't imagine they are all that tired of being really good every year!

    He can coach and he is a very good motivator. You want to play UK in a 7 game series?! Hell no. The way to get them is single elimination. They would breeze through a setting such as the NBA Playoffs done in college, imo.

    That's a false choice though. My point isn't that I don't want the best players. I just want the best players, in the best conference, coached by a guy who has proven he can do more with less.

    I'm not against one and dones. I'm just thinking that it must get old beating up on a weak P5 conference with an NBA roster and have only 1 title.

    But "Madden on easy" boring is an option, right?

    JAB has a .719 winning percentage with less talent in tougher conferences.
