      Looks like I have some work to do...

    3. Most underachieving college bball coach

      Not a duke fan at all. Almost put coach K on the list too since he only has 3 with all the great teams duke has had. Not trying to disrespect any of theses coaches. I actually like Cal since his days at UMASS. I like your take as a fan on having success even without winning titles. As a Hawkeye fan I would gladly take UK’s success under Cal.
    4. Most underachieving college bball coach

      Yep I get that - that's what makes it so great. And totally agree that winning the tournament is a challenge for any team no matter the level of talent. Probably should have titled it differently - like "Who did you expect to have more titles". Love the discussion and the different points of view.
    5. Most underachieving college bball coach

      But what are his expectations? To win championships. Just like Self and all the other top coaches at the top schools. I guess that was what I was getting at with the poll. For their fan base its a disappointment unless they win it all. Not trying to make the point that they aren't good coaches. Personally I wouldn't put any of these other coaches in the same room (except maybe Barnes) as Cal, Self, and Izzo. Miller definitely seems like he fits the best to me - thanks to @SlinkyJr for mentioning him.
    6. Most underachieving college bball coach

      Solely based on expectations - Izzo only has 1 title but usually has talent to get to the final 4 with a chance to win it all. I actually like Izzo a lot and pull for Sparty bball most of all other Big 10 teams.
    7. On the eve of March madness I decided to look up the college bball champions since 2000. Since 2000 Coach K and Roy Williams both have 3 championships and Billy Donovan and Jim Calhoun both have 2. No other coach has multiple titles, including Calipari, Bill Self, and Tom Izzo - all coaches with excellent reputations and usually top 10 teams. So who has underachieved the most? My pick would be Calipari due to the top talent he recruits every year. Who gets your vote? Do you think there is another deserving coach not mentioned?

      This team is good enough to win it all without a coach

    11. Mid-Season PAC-12 Awards Leaders

      Who's your pick?
    12. With the season almost to the half way point here are my updated predictions and odds for PAC-12 individual season awards. Not much as changed on the offensive side but a few newcomers have emerged on the defensive side. Offensive POY: Donald Culver – (SR) QB Utah Culver has lead the Utes to a 5-0 start including a road win at #5 Arizona. He has thrown 12 TD passes to only 1 INT, both best in the PAC-12. He still leads in completion percentage (67.5%) and #2 in yards per game (321.3). The Utes have a tough schedule remaining and will need Culver to continue his level of performance to have a chance to win the PAC-12 crown. Current odds: 2-1 Trevon Yeldon – (JR) RB Oregon Yeldon has continued his domination through 4 games averaging a conference best 177 rushing yards per game. He is #1 in yards per carry at 7.38 (min 15 carries) and #1 in rushing TDs with 8. He also has 2 receiving TDs. As the focal point of the Oregon offense he should continue to put up monster numbers for the remainder of the season. Current odds: 2-1 Jay Arreola – (JR) WR UCLA/ Steven Gore - (SR) QB UCLA Yes I know this is a "player" of the year award but it is difficult to separate Arreola and Gore, a dynamic duo leading the PAC-12's best passing attack. Arreola still leads the PAC-12 in catches (31), receiving TDs (6), and receiving yards per game (119.5) Through 4 games. Gore leads in passing TDs (13) and passing yards per game (356). More wins as the season progresses could help their stock continue to rise. Current odds: 6-1 Offensive FOY: Bradley Hassan – (FR) QB Washington State Hassan has a slight advantage here as he has continued to impress with a QBR of 167.36 while throwing for 10 TDs and only 2 INTs. He still leads the PAC-12 with the highest yards per attempt (9.63). Current odds: 2-1 Israel Carlson – (FR) RB Arizona State Carlson has rushed for 138 yards per game and is tied for second in the conference with 6 rushing TDs. Current odds: 3-1 Defensive POY: DeSean Barkley – (JR) CB Colorado Barkley continues to lead the PAC-12 with 4 interceptions through his first 3 games. No other conference player has more than 2 interceptions. Current odds: 2-1 Tyrek Humphrey – (SO) DE Arizona Humphrey has taken over the PAC-12 lead in sacks (6) and tackles for loss (5) while tallying 21 tackles which ranks 5th in the conference. Current odds: 3-1 Defensive FOY: Nate Garrett - FR LB USC Garrett leads the conference in tackles (30) which moves him to the top of the list. He also has 1 interception on the season. Current odds: 2-1 Adam Gibson - FR DT California Gibson has compiled 3 sacks, 9 tackles, and 2 tackles for loss through his first 3 games. Current odds: 4-1 Alpha Goldman – (FR) DT Arizona State Goldman has compiled 2 sacks, 9 tackles, and 1 tackles for loss through his first 2 games. Current odds: 6-1 Special Teams POY: Sam Walsh - (SR) K California Walsh has made 9 of 9 extra points and 7 of 7 field goal attempts, including a long of 54 yards. He is currently the only PAC-12 kicker with made field goals of more than 50 yards (2 of 2). Current odds: 3-2 Jamari Turner - (SR) CB Oregon State Turner currently leads the PAC-12 with 2 punt return TDs. Current odds: 5-1 Coach of the Year owensr37 - Utah Current odds: 3-1 Jim Henson - Oregon State Current odds: 4-1 Both coaches still have their teams undefeated. owensr37 moves in front after the Utes pulled of an upset on the road at Arizona but this is far from decided.
    13. [2021] Week #6 - Saturday Evening

      gg owensr37. Knew it was going to be a close one and we made more mistakes. And the injury to Strong certainly didn't help.
    14. Week 6 PAC-12 Preview

      With more than half of the PAC-12 teams on a bye this week there are only 2 conference games and 1 non-conference match up on the schedule. Both conference games will take place in Saturday night prime time with all 3 remaining undefeated teams in action. Undefeated Oregon State visits Washington while undefeateds square off in Tucson as Utah visits Arizona. Washington looks to get back on track after back to back road losses at Oregon and Arizona. The Huskies will need a strong performance by QB Jake Davis to out dual Oregon State’s dual threat QB Julian Ralph. This is Oregon State’s toughest road test so far and with Washington needing a win look for the Huskies to win a close one and hand the Beavers their first loss 23-20. For the Utes to win they are going to need SR QB Donald Culver to step up big against the talented Wildcat defense. Arizona will rely on a balanced attack with QB Sam Parish and RB Shane Strong leading the way. Culver has been outstanding this season but Arizona has home field advantage and pulls out a close win 24-20. The UCLA Bruins will look to get back to .500 this week as the Eastern Washington Eagles visit the Rose Bowl. We expect the Bruins to get the job done and move to 2-2.
    15. Agreed - but after scouting the Utes this week they do have a solid squad with a 5 star QB. Definitely not expecting an easy win on Saturday.
