After the top 50, they rank the" 30 HEAD COACHES WHO ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THEIR CAREER AND HAVE POTENTIAL TO MOVE ONTO OUR LIST OF THE TOP 50 HEAD COACHES IN THE GAME TODAY". which totally sounds like one of those headlines that you stretched out when you had a thousand word essay and got to 977 or so.
Fearless Leader Angry Leprechaun Michael Cronin clocks in at #1 on this list, which seems like an honor. Hell, we all wanna be #1, because #2 is not a winner and #3 nobody remembers (#3 is Gregg Marshall from Wichita, who actually is a really good coach). But that would suggest that Fearless Leader Angry Leprechaun is not one of the 50 best coaches in college basketball. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCBYA50miRw

they also rank the top 100 assistant coaches in college basketball. i'm not nearly enough of a nerd to know if these are bad, but Larry Davis (who totally should get the Miami job) is at 55 and Darren Savino comes in at 94. The honorable Tony Stubblefield is #31.
50. Larry Eustachy Southern Miss
MICK ( when the hell did this guy get another job?)
