Stupid story on Yahoo about coach K and an unfair recruiting advantage he gains from being the USA National Team coach - taking the exact opposite side of a string of posts on this board about how big a hit Uconn recruiting is taking with Geno serving in the same capacity for the women. (Rightfully the comments are pretty universally trashing the author):

I also found the Fortune top leaders selection of three coaches (grouped together) to be interestingly lacking in on name - I understand why - it is termed 'PC', but to ignore the active coach with the highest winning percentage, the most championships, etc is a pretty glaring omission (#20):

Well, the moment they started with Pope Frances as #1 I knew the list was clue free....

really interesting article on Geno as leader and Muffet as manager. I was inclined at first to think there was a gender bias (as often women are more practical and often don't have as many resources to delegate to, so are assumed to be more of manager than leader) but I thought the case here was well stated.

The Yahoo / Coach K story is one of the dumbest pieces I've read in a long time. Guy has to be either a UNC or UK grad.
