Do you know how little difference there is between Bill Carmody barely getting there and Penn State barely getting there?
Bill Carmody and Northwestern have never barely gotten there, that's the point. We'll see if Collins can do something different for them and get them to the Dance. But they have never been there, which is why PSU is a better job. Hell, PSU has been to a Sweet 16 since 2000.
You can have the 3 NCAA Tournament bids since we joined the Big Ten that no kid we recruit cares about, I'll take Chicago. I'll take the proximity to tons of talent and the proximity to a large population that is going to fill my arena every night.
That no coach has ever been able to harness into an NCAA Tournament appearance. I wonder why. :/
