I very much appreciated the recent "Statistical study of Basketball Coaching Prospects" posted here recently by travissimmo. Good job. Additionally, some of the mentions of coaches with "Oregon ties" got my attention. That being said, you're all missing the only statistic that really matters:
Which coach has the closest ties to Uncle Phil Knight? Don't get me wrong...I love our Nike relationship and believe our University--not only sports teams but University as a whole--has benefited greatly (and positively) by Mr. Knight's generosity. But to think that Phil doesn't have some "input" on who the new coach may be is naive at best.
I don't know who that coach is...but would appreciate ATQ's input.
