Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball - 6th edition
I'm not a huge proponent of titles defining a coach or player, especially in a crap shoot like March Madness, but Donovan is a definite omission. It's impossible to really feel satisfied with a list like that. Too many names to remember. He'd be in the top 10 somewhere, probably just above Howland.
Barnes has been to 18 NCAA tourneys with 3 schools, with 3 sweet sixteens, 2 elite 8s and a final four. That's pretty impressive. No one coaches that long without having some disappointing years. More often than not he gets the most out of what he has, and seeing how his recruiting is better than ever, I think the sky is the limit for Texas in the next decade. On top of that I love his coaching style. Just a personal favorite. Same with Bo Ryan, who maybe has the highest basketball IQ of any coach in America, pro or college. If he could ever get a couple top recruits to buy into his system for 2-3 years, he'd probably win a title.
