: Sparky...you have provided a nice summary of
: the BW records over the years....you (and
: others) have provided similar thoughts
: A framework to look at the body of work
: performed by Monson and the other coaches
: might be helpful to quantify the records of
: the BW teams.
: * In 2007, the BWC was rated #17 of 32 NCAA
: MBB Conferences.
: * In 2017, the BWC was rated #29 of 32 NCAA
: MBB Conferences.
: It appears that other conferences have
: obtained better players, scheduled better,
: and have developed better teams than the BWC
: coaches during the past 10 years.
: Subjectively, I agree with BeefEater (who, I
: think said) that the talent in the BWC has
: improved and, overall, it is better than it
: was 10 years ago.
: As for Monson, in 4-7 months, we will have a
: good idea of what the 17-18 season holds for
: No reason not to hope for the best...
: Go 49ers!
: That being said, I want to note one other
: point about the BWC during the past 10
: No BWC Head Coach has been chosen to be the
: Head Coach of another Division 1 MBB School.
: I think that Donny Daniels moved from HC to
: Top Recruiter for UCLA and then Gonzaga.
: But, other that him, I don't think anyone
: else moved directly from coaching a BWC
: school to HC or Top Assistant at another D-1
: MBB School.
: The few of us, who comment on the BWC
: Boards, are pretty parochial in our
: viewpoints. We know the BWC fairly well,
: but, the other conferences...not so much.
: So, as to my friend's Sparky's points, I say
: it is OK for what it is: A comparison within
: the BWC. But, I think looking at a bigger
: group of D-1 schools is helpful for framing
: his analysis and our discussion.
: (By the way, I am reading Michael Lewis'
: book THE UNDOING, which is all about
: understanding why people see a set of facts,
: and, then come to widely differing
: conclusions or results.....if you have an
: interest in Statistical Analysis or
: Psychology, this book may interest you. The
: first chapter focuses on how the Houston
: Rockets changed their method of drafting NBA
: players....sort of like a condensed
: Moneyball in Chapter One.
