    Rick Pitino deserves a lot of credit. He has four players rated among the best 50 in the nation, which means he was forced to deal with big egos and high expectations. Gregg Marshall of Wichita State had no players rated among the top 100. In other words, he didn't have to deal with the egos and extra pressure. Why they lost is beyond me.

    Similarly, if big egos like Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, etc., had played on the same NBA team, they would have been losers unless they had had a great coach like Pitino.
