  • No T&F Coaches on Top 50 AT Coaches List

    http://www.sportingnews.com/college-bas ... s-all-time

    Off the top of my head I'd think at least one of these three would make it- Ed Temple, Bill Bowerman, and John McDonald.

    The title should be "50 greatest US coaches of so-called "major sports".

      Every one of the 50 is in a team sport played with a ball or a puck.


      Knowing that there were no track coaches, the name I was thinking they might have had on there from a non-game sport was Bela Karolyi. Not there.

        As with most lists, just a bunch of subjective BS

          It really goes to show how many folks think T&F is:

          A - a minor sport

          B- not a "Team" sport

          C- an insignificant sport

          D- ALL OF THE ABOVE

            Yeah, but its fun and creates lots of discussion and arguments. On Mike and Mike (ESPN Radio) this AM they thanked they guys who made the lists for making their show so easy as they spent the whole show going back and forth to the list.

              Definitely fun. I think we all get drawn to them, like rubber necking on the highway.

                Putting aside the lack of minor sports, can't argue with number one. On the other hand, those NFL and NBA picks look all jumbled up to me. And Casey Stengal as the best MLB manager ain't right either.

                    Publications do these lists to generate pub for themselves. When is the last time you read the Sporting News or even thought about it? It's been years for me. But now it's on everybody's minds for one reason or another.

                    Out of all the sports lists I've seen, this one has the greatest margin for error than any of them. A case could be made for probably 1000 coaches to appear on that list. Their list isn't correct or incorrect. It's just one person's opinion.

                    What about Dean Cromwell?

                          I definitely agree with B, but that doesn't mean good coaching isn't important.
