So if Bill doesn't...

  • Win conference coach of the year, can we fire all the voters?

    Of course but you know it’s going to one of the newcomers. Lol

  • Tying the all-time conference title streak and running away for the 13th with 2 other top 10 ranked teams should automatically qualify him for COY.

  • I think we’ve beat 4 top 5 teams

  • @Blown in typical KU fan style, never satisfied, I’ll ask the question… Why not national coach of the year?

  • @approxinfinity he will be NCOY.

  • Would have loved to have seen the evolution of this years team with Doke. Or, at least Bragg playing to his projected ceiling.

  • There’s not really a surprise team this year so I think Self will definitely be in the mix for NCOY. Right now though, I think Mark Few is probably the front runner for NCOY because of the undefeated season so far. I don’t care if the WCC is weak as heck after St. Mary’s and BYU, they also beat Arizona, Iowa St., and Florida this year as well so they’ve got quality wins this year.

    Obviously, Self gets my vote with my bias, but I wouldn’t feel like Self got cheated of Few won it either though.

  • @Texas-Hawk-10 how many tourney teams has he beat besides the 5 you listed ?

    Self winning 13 in a row with a 6 man roster, matching one of the greatest coaches of all time in the second strongest conference–& winning this year by several games and beating UK at home and Duke on neutral court along the way seems like the best resume for NCOY of the year.

    Few takes the zags to the FF and self doesn’t I would agree he would be the front runner.

  • @Blown The voting is done between the conference tournaments and the NCAA tournament. It’s not easy to go 31-0 regardless of conference affiliation and why it’s only happened a handful of times since the Wooden era.

  • @Texas-Hawk-10 also I think I was wrong in the UCLA streak was with 3 coaches, wasn’t it? Not just wooden.

  • Agree also that it’s not easy to win 31-0.

  • I noticed the line on the Zags game today was Zags -29. We’re playing the number 1 ranked team on RPI, and they’re playing the 233rd ranked RPI team. Gonzaga is 11-0 against teams ranked 200 or higher, while we’ve only played 1 team ranked 200+. Still, they do have a few good pre conference wins, including a win over an Arizona team missing their point guard. I wonder what Bill’s record would be in the WCC.

  • Did Marshall win it when WSU went undefeated?

  • Zags SOS is 72. Kansas is 11.

  • @chriz yes as did Calipari in 2015.

  • @KUSTEVE actually, Trier and Cartwright were both out that game

    @Texas-Hawk-10 also I think I was wrong in the UCLA streak was with 3 coaches, wasn’t it? Not just wooden.

    Correct. 2 other coaches after Wooden.

  • Unsurprisingly, Medcalf just wrote an article basically claiming that KU is a one man team with Mason - even said they would be a bubble team without him. I don’t even know why I bother to read his stuff. Plain ridiculous

  • @HawkChamp That freshman Jackson must be on another team. Interestingly, he is so good he will get POY votes, which could hurt FM’s totals if people split between the two.

  • Even w Tharpe as point this team was never a bubble team

  • @Crimsonorblue22 we have and out of the 3 losses 2 of have been to teams that are/were ranked in the top 20

  • @HawkChamp said:

    @KUSTEVE actually, Trier and Cartwright were both out that game

    Correct. In my book, they didn’t actually beat Arizona. It’s still a good win though.

    They also beat Florida (this win looks really good now), ISU (only by 2…) and well…that’s basically it! The rest of their schedule is a complete joke.

  • @Crimsonorblue22 I’ll make it easier for us bums.


  • @dylans thx, I don’t know how to do it. Always help me! Please!

  • @Crimsonorblue22 I just took a screen shot. I get lazy about clicking on links sometimes

  • @mayjay

    Not only that but they did it while playing In 3 conferences not just one like KU.
