    Who is the best mid-major men's college basketball coach? Has built a program, good game coach, and not an out-and-out cheater?

    (Other than Mark Few, Jim Larranaga and the guy at Belmont, all of whom probably aren't looking for another job).

    Dana Altman.

    One guy who's NOT on the list: UW-Milwaukee's Rob Jeter. [/Gutter]

    Wright State's Brad Brownell ... used to be at UNC Wilmington ... is a good one.

    Oh, wait. This was a MID-major discussion. My bad.

    Clearly, UW-Milwaukee is low-major.

    I don't know if he's the best, but Old Dominion's Blaine Taylor is doing a decent job.

    Fuck Jim Larranaga in the dick with a rusty spork. Fuck him and good.

    And Brad Brownell is a good choice. Just look at how UNCW completely fell apart without him.

    I thought you were going to throw Tom Pecora's name in there.

    Brad Brownell once left me a voicemail and forgot to hang up his phone after the message, so I got about five minutes of him driving around in his car listening to sports-talk radio afterwards. I was a little disappointed it wasn't something he could sing along to. But I'll certainly vouch for his coaching, if not his grasp of technology. Dana Altman also a good choice, as well as someone willing to drink a beer with you should you run into him in the middle of Kansas.
  11. Whaaaaat? I normally condone all types of spork violence, but Jim L is one of the nicest coaches I've ever dealt with.
