For the Ohio State Buckeyes and their fans, the meaningful basketball season ended two weeks ago in the NCAA first round loss to Dayton, However, not for us intrepid writers at tBBC. Despite our favorite team being knocked out of the tournament and our brackets in shambles, we’re still thinking basketball.
We put together a quick survey amongst ourselves of our favorite coaches in the Big Ten. By “favorite”, I mean regardless of school affiliation, who would you like to play for? The coaches were ranked on a scale of 12 to 1, with a ’12′ signifying “I’d actually pay to play for this person” and a ’1′ as “You’re kidding, right?” As the responses poured in, I decided to throw a standard deviation calculation at them as an attempt to get some feel for the consistency in how a coach was viewed by our staff. The smaller the “StD”, the more the response were clustered around the average, hence the more consistently the tBBC staffers thought of a coach. More or less..
And here is tBBC B1G Coaches Poll:
There you have it. So, where would you rank the B1G coaches?
