CBSSports.com: Who do coaches think are the big cheaters?

    This "article" rubbed me the wrong way, despite Parrish's sidestep in the first graf of his part. I don't know if I can really put my finger on it, but just giving coaches carte blanche to label others as cheaters with only gut instincts and rumors, and not having to put their name on it ... I don't know. Just seems sketchy to me.

    Am I overreacting?

    I'm surprised they allowed something like that to run, even though it's interesting as hell...

    It's kind of like "The A-list" for college coaches.

    Man, that column is some bullshit. Whoever thought "Hey! Let's let the sleaziest group of people we know take anonymous potshots at each other!" has really lost his grip on what's supposed to be going on.

    Next up: We ask agents, who lies? My money is on Drew Rosenhaus.

    I'm just waiting for them to refer to a coach as a Friend of Dorothy...

    I agree, kind of bad form to let coaches just anonymously take shots at each other. However, I dind it funny Calipari and Drew got 70 percent of the votes.

    Unsurprising. The quote about Calipari was great.

    Yes it was. And accurate I'm sure.

    Calipari and Drew were no-brainers...

    Figured Calhoun would get more votes since he has actually been penalized for actually cheating.

    OK, I read the first post, and I'm going to guess and then go look:

    1) John Calipari
    2) Scott Drew
    3) Jim Calhoun
    4) Tim Floyd?
    5) Billy Donovan?
    6) Tommy Amaker?
    7) Bill Self?
    8) Rick Pitino?
    9) Steve Alford?
    10) Jay Wright?

    EDIT: I wonder if Crean gets votes for the same reason that Drew does - because of all the God stuff. I bet 80 percent of his Twitter posts are about God.

    I'm surprised Drew didn't win just because of their self-righteous bullshit mentioned in that comment.
