    Few is top 10 - not individually but because he's got mothers as assistants.

    If he ever lost Tommy Lloyd, he'd be fucked. Few can barely complete a sentence on his own. Lloyd is the closer on these foreign recruits. Lloyd has Starbucks cups stashed all over the world.

    Donny Daniels is a mother fucking closer, too. On the recruiting trail, the bruthas mamas get wet at his dulcid tones when he starts sweet talking them. Little do they know he is doing white women exclusively in Spokane. White women in Spokane love the BBC more than UODuckGirl.

    Few also brings in reject coaches so they can rehabilitate and then go elsewhere. Ken Bone spent a year there as an 'unpaid' assistant. Ray Giacoletti hunkered down for a couple years after getting fired at Utah.

    Few isn't elite on his own but he surrounds himself with a ridiculously good staff. Which makes him elite.

    MORE than uoduckgirl?

    Impossible

    You can't be a top 5 coach if you hardly ever win in March.

    Few is Tony Bennett with slightly better recruiting and slightly less embarrassing losses. Very good coach. Probably worthy HOF'er.

    Not elite as long as he only has one F4 on his resume.

    But yes they're the premier program on the West Coast.

    Sark > Ty

    Lets revisit this in a few days. Only Florida State stands between the Zags and their third Elite Eight in four years.

    Yes Few was upset three times in the second round as a 1-3 seed (2004, 2005, 2013) but he also reached the Sweet 16s three times as a 10 or worse seed (2000, 2001, 2016.)
    2 Elite 8s and a Final 4 in 19 years = Elite coach?

    Sorry man, can't get behind that. If he wins a title this year we can revisit this conversation. Otherwise his results in March have been too mediocre for one more E8 run to overcome.
    This is Gonzaga, Still a small school located in Eastern Washington.


    Few should be Sainted for making one E-8 let alone 2 and a Finals appearance.

    You realize there is a massive shortage of BBC in Spokane compared to Maryland, right?

    BBC is a highly valued commodity in that town. More rare than books in Todd Graham's library.

    Too soon?

    Nah.

    Here's the timeline.

    uoduckgirl gains freshman 15

    realizes black dudes are into her

    bangs whole football team

    becomes BBC addict under guise of being a big fan of oregon football

    cant get enough in eugene

    moves to maryland

    Top 16 college basketball teams since 2000

    Which teams had a bigger hill to climb of these 16?

    Winning percentage in the NCAA tourney

    Look down this list and tell me what other mid major is higher or what other coach with a better winning percentage doesn't have obvious advantages over Few.

    The answer is yes and it isn't close

    BTW Howland went to three straight Final Fours. Got blazed by Florida twice in a row

    Howland definitely had the best three year run of any West Coast school.

    Few is a great coach and imo, you can't really compare what he does to what Roy Williams, K, Calipari, Self, etc. The fact he coaches at Gonzaga needs to be taken into account. He's done an amazing job and last year cemented him as a truly great coach. I won't be surprised if Gonzaga makes the Final 4 again this year. Eventually, he's going to back in the Final 4 again.

    The only two recent mid major coaches in Few's league have been Marshall (being generous), and Stevens.

    Watched Howland last night in the NIT. Absolutely destroyed Louisville. Two or three years in and he has Mississippi fucking State looking like Kentucky. Several big recruits coming in, too.

    He'll be back in a high level P5 job soon enough. That fucker can coach it.

    The NCAA should ban the Pacific and Mountain time zone teams from the next 5 tournaments.
