Doesss great playersss make great coachesss? Looking at the coaches we have listed at #6 you can make that argument.
Alias- Mark Gottfried- I would have ranked him much higher before last season. He could move up considerably in my biased eyes by being even a mediocre coach this year.
Hville- Bruce Pearl (Tennessee) - In Chris Lofton we trust. He knows how to revive a program, but I think teams have figured out how to play him.
Bamahoops- Rick Stansbury (Miss St)- the last couple of years haven't gone well for him. Maybe he's making a run at Dave Odom for NIT supremacy, who knows. I think he feels the heat if the Bulldogs don't make the NCAAs next season.
Two of the coaches at #6 have slipped from 2 years ago. I suspect both of them need to make a run at either the SECT or a run in the NCAAs to keep the fanbase from turning up the flames.
