View Full Version : Bo - Big 10 COY

First of all, congrats to Bo for winning COY in the Big 10. Bo did another great job of winning some big games and finishing in the top 5.

This COY for Bo is because Wisconsin did what MU did this year, finish far above preseason expectations.

I was reading a thread on a Louisville board. Basically said COY will go to Buzz or JTIII. Said Pitino would never have a chance because Louisville is always picked was picked first / second so there is no way they could exceed expectations. As far as I can tell Pitino has never won COY.

Similar to why Coach K hasn't won ACC coach of the year since the 1999-2000 season, his team is expected to win so at best he can meet expectations. Funny, Dave Leitao has won ACC coach of the year more recently than coach K, and Seth Greenberg has won two since the last time Coach K won.

Buzz took a team ranked 7th preseason and won the league. He should be COY. If Louisville won it outright, I could see where Pitino would have an argument.
