I was out running errands today and was listening to Jeff Goodman and Bruce Pearl's show called Inside College Basketball on satellite radio. They had an interesting topic that asked the question, "what college coach would make the best President.?"
Pearl went first and chose Rick Pitino. He compared him to JFK in a few ways (that escape me right now) and Goodman said hands down it would be Coach Cal. Goodman said that no one can sell an idea like Calipari and blow smoke. He also mentioned that Cal had escaped any trouble at his previous coaching stops. I found it interesting that the 2 choices were coaching the 2 most prominent universities in the state of Kentucky.
They opened the phone lines up and got the opinions of the callers. The usual suspects were mentioned like Coach K, Bill Self, Bobby Knight etc. I really have no opinion on this but thought it was a fun conversation and wondered what coaches the readers of ASOB would choose. I suspect the responses (if any) will be blue tinted but I pose the question to you nonetheless.
So in honor of President's Day, who ya got and why?
