    Gotta agree with him on this one.

    Considering AllBuffs ability to rig votes, I didn't want to risk it.

    I had to go with Sendek. That guy looks like he has totally lost it. I've read some stuff that makes me think he alienated a ton of people on the recruiting trail, too. Those ASU classes in 2009 and 2010 should have set them up for a NCAA tourney appearance last season. FAIL.

    Judging basically only on having season tickets behind the opposing teams bench, so I got see them in action, I voted for Robinson. Only coach who didn't take team out onto the court away from the stands during timeouts, and looked completely lost the whole game. I have no idea how they took us to the woodshed in Corvallis. Note that I missed the Arizona St and Washington games, obviously wouldn't have voted for Romar though.

    I dunno. Talent lands on Howland's lap yet he always seems to underachieve.

    Robinson's teams looked clueless for most of the season.

    Howland. His teams are gifted talent, they tend to play hard, but in the end they just suck. A little harsh considering his past success, but sometimes underachieving is worse than falling short.

    Against Oregon, CU(away) and Stanford they played tough and hard. That overtime game against Stanford was one of the best games of the year. He is definitely a candidate though.

    Gotta go with Craig Robinson. The guy looks absolutely clueless to me, and Oregon State could have been much better this past season with any semblance of competent coaching.

    I'm highly suspicious of Krystkowiak and Ken Bone, but it's still too early to judge. John Wooden might not have been able to win 10 games with that Utah squad.

    Regarding Sendek: He seems to have lost it, but if we're looking at his overall coaching career, then the guy has certainly proven more than most on this list. He did a nice job at NCSU for the most part.

    If I had any MS paint skills whatsoever, I'd do one of Howland at a strip club with a 10 on his lap and a limp dick.

    Ken may be a little overmatched going against the big boys but he could coach a little at Portland State. Any semblance of a winning tradition in Pullman is hard to pull off and he had a tough father-son act to follow with that job. My vote was for O'Neill. As many high-profile jobs as he's been handed and he never did much with them. The media circus seems to follow him around enough of those places too. Wouldn't risk it if I were an AD. Maybe a Juco AD, but still.
