These are awards "so far", not a prediction of who will eventually win. You can only go by what the teams have done so far. Coach of the year awards frequently go to a coach whose team has exceeded expectations. The Dukes were supposed to be an absolute train wreck. No one would be surprised if they were 3-9 now. For them to be at 7-5 is amazing. If somehow they could maintain this through league play, Ferry would indeed be a candidate for coach of the year.

However, Jim Ferry is the real deal and will terrorize the league (whats left of it) in years to come. I hope the A10 has some other good rebounding teams, otherwise it will be a blood bath on the boards.

I'm not surprised Chaz has underperformed. He is an out of control mess at times. Colter will likely outperform him this year. Colter is putting up better scoring and assist numbers than TJ McConnell.
Please forgive us for being a little skeptical. I'm sure someone who felt like doing it can find a ton of posts on this board saying the same thing about Everhart.

Re: Your Team's Awards so far....

Everhart did terrorize the league from 2008-2011.

Remember 10/40? That at least terrorized us Duquesne fans.

I also think you would be hard pressed to find a better qualified assistant coaching staff. Ferry was given a lot of money to get whatever coaches he wanted. 2 guys on his staff have been head coaches, one in Division 1 and another in Div II. John Rhodes is a big man coach (he is atleast 6'7 himself) and played in Europe for years, ending up coaching at Ohio Northern more recently.
