I'm not stirring the pot here BUT Coach K needs another SIX titles to catch the Wizard of Westwood before he can be considered the greatest. Now if you want to refer to Coach K as the greatest CURRENT coach no problem. Just not the G.O.A.T of college hoops, at least not yet.

Although it looks like Coach K will be in line for another # 1 seed come Tourney time. All they have to do is take care of business in the ACC and one of those four # 1's will have the Blue Devils name on it.

Coach K will always have my respect for his management of the "Redeem Team" USA in the '08 Beijing Olympics, as well as his honorable military service. If he isn't the "Greatest Of All Time," I think he will be in the not-too-distant-future.

Agreed. And those only "Yes I Am" Bud Light commercials with Coach K from back in the early and mid 90's are classics.

Yeah, watched the game. Another frustrating loss for the Runnin' Rebels, DAMMIT. It's looking like UNLV will have to win the MWC Tourney to go to the Big Dance this year. At least the Tounrney's in Vegas again. Actaully I think the MWC Tourney is in Vegas through the 2012-13 season.

It didn't kill us yet. I can't remember what game it was but, someone else lost a critical game that actually helped us maintain our chances to the big dance this year. I'll have to see if I can find it...

Up and coming. It has been an uphill battle for UNLV since the scandal, I think they are turning the corner and it helps that the conference is getting attention with successful teams like SDSU and BYU. Exposure is everything when it comes to recruiting.

Just remember that BYU is running away from the MWC.
