As we approach the Final Four, the Big Dance, and the New Jersey swamps, I am reminded of Al McGuire's comment that professional basketball is a player's game, while college basketball is a coaches game. Nearly all the great programs are associated with great coaches: Wooden at UCLA, Smith at North Carolina, Rupp at Kentucky.
