Here's a Lute Olson question

    Do Arizona's wins this season count on his career record?

    If so, he's now tied for 10th place with the ol' Left-hander at 786 wins.

    Good question. I would assume that since he's isn't returning this year, the games would not be counted toward his career.

    I wonder if anyone knows whether or not did Coach K get credited for the W's and L's when he sat out after his back surgery in the mid-90's?

    I thought that he did.

    Coach K most definitely was not "credited" with all the losses during the bad-back season.

    I thought that was why he has the surgery when he did. Wasn't that (coincidentally of course) one of Duke's worst years?

    I actually think it's up to the individual school to decide which coach to give the W's and L's to.

    Duke went 13-18 and 2-14 in the ACC that season.

    Does not count that season.

    I believe I read in a Katz blog last week that U of A said this season will be credited to O'Neill, not Olson.

    Anyone remember how Tennessee handled Phil Fulmer's three games during Johnny Majors' last year?

    Spent much of the time cleaning out the Jack Daniel's bottles, I suspect.

    As with Tuberville/Cutcliffe, the new coach gets the game(s).

    I think Coach K actually moved to get those wins and losses stricken off his record. Because he started that season, initially they counted.

    If he did, he's a small, small man. I mean, does anybody really look at his losses anyway? Lenny Wilkens is the NBA's all-tme wins leader ... and the all-time losses leader and nobody cares about the latter.
