Coach K is indeed a great coach, and his 4 titles are but a mere pipe dream for the programs in this conference, but last time I looked, he doesn't have any holes in his hands so he is capable of making a mistake. Had followed up his initial remarks with simply saying "I was wrong to disparage the A10, they've obviously had a great year, mainly I was trying to stick up for my conference and got carried away" I think most would be forgotten/forgiven, but he doubled up on his remarks, and looks doubly foolish today than he did two weeks ago. He'll go down as one of the greatest college coaches in NCAA history, but like all of us, he's capable of making mistakes, overstating thing, and sticking his foot in his mouth.

I CAN AGREE WITH THIS. I JUST THINK THE CONSTANT BASHING THAT'S GOING ON FROM YOU GUYS AND THE FACT THAT YOU WON'T LET IT GO IS MORE CHILDISH THAN THE COMMENTS HE MADE TO BEGIN WITH.

Based on his comments to the Durham newspaper, you are wrong. He appears very thin skinned and hurt by what others think. I guess he can dish out criticism but just can't take it.

Is there a reason you are yelling?

I don't know about letting it go, I haven't read even 1/3 of this thread, but its what, 9 pages long? That's a pittance on a message board when 1 coach (actually 2 when you include Chris Mack) took a swipe at 13 fan bases that collectively were having one of their better seasons in conference history. If you think isn't letting it go, you should see some of the threads on Ohio State boards about the SEC or UK boards about Duke. Those things have festered for years, this will pretty much die down when the tournament dies down. May have died down by now if Coach K hadn't added fuel to the fire and acted all butt hurt.

This. What's even funnier is he gets this S**T all the time from those other haters and ignores it. With us, now he's whining about being called out for being stupid?

What did he want? Should the other ACC Coaches rallied around him? Ignored the fact, he was spewing fallacies? Should Gottfried, after NC State blew it, made a point to mention Coach K still being right, despite the outcome? Should Boeheim done the same? Yeah, it was a rough backlash, but not just from A10 "fanboys" because not a single basketball guy in the media or his own conference agreed with him. He made a ludicrous statement that was proven as such and now he's the one butt-hurt.

As pointed out, had he not referred to this himself by whining about it, this thread would have been buried and probably by next year forgotten.

And, btw, I don't think any A10 fan expected K to give two craps about our reaction, but he surprised us by showing how truly narcissistic he really is when he cried about the backlash he created in the first place. Even more revealing is him still not understanding or getting why the "unquestioned one" was wrong in the first place.

That's a huge ego, because every single criticism of him in the media spelled it out for him and was specific for the two reasons he was wrong 1. Calling out another league (beneath him) 2. Picking the wrong league in the wrong year (stupid). They were all unanimous in saying he should defend his league (par for the course) and campaign for bids. K's even dumber reaction is all I did was defend my league and I was vilified for it. No dumbass that's not all you did and that's not why you got "hate."

Re: ACC Calls Out the A10

just to recap

Coach K trashed the A10 and said they didn't deserve 6 bids.
His team got a 3-seed and lost to a 14 seed.
Every other ACC team won at least 1 game in the NCAA tournament.
He whined that nobody backed him up.
The A10 is currently 2-0 vs the ACC in the NCAA tournament.
The 6th team from the A10 has advanced to the Elite 8.

Most well adjusted human beings - even the egomaniacs who find themselves coaching high level D1 hoops - will back off their bullshit assertions when they're proven to be unfounded, neutralize the situation with some self deprecating humor, or just let it go completely.

Coach K on the other hand, just doubles down with another round of assclownery.

Absolutely! We got all kinds of play out of it. If he just lobbied for NC State it's a story in the Carolina newspapers...

... by bringing the A-10 into it, it went national.

Without Coach K's comments, the A-10 had a failed 2014 NCAA Tournament.

With Coack K's comments, people are talking about how good the A-10 was.
SLU beating NC State isn't a story unless Coach K runs his mouth.
Dayton over Syracuse would still be a story, but the added "A10 now 2-0 vs ACC #MeatGrinder" tweets wouldn't have happened.

Dayton needs to win the championship to match last year's NCAA performance:
We were 7-5 last season in the dance, and we're 4-5 this season.

Yes, but we're the internet, he's a national public figure with multiple PR reps.

I can call Coach K a twatwaffle now and there's no repercussions. If he calls me one in a post-game press conference, he's in deep shit.

Re: ACC Calls Out the A10

With Virginia bowing out to Michigan State, that leaves 1 Atlantic 10 team and zero All Cupcakes Conference teams left. They must be really glad that FSU football kicked ass this year.

A-10 smoked the ACC this year. Dayton over Syracuse, Saint Louis over NC State, and the Flyers the last team standing. That would be pretty much a total victory, wouldn't it?

What's also amazing is the number 1 conference (the Big 12) has no representation.
