It is interesting to see what other fans think about the coaches in the Big Ten...clearly the Illini Fans (myself included, are not happy with Groce)

Izzo...Runaway, Matta, Superb Recruiter with staff,

Beilein, Players seem to love him,

Turgeon, Most under-rated imo,

Painter, Walked into steady program got recruits to maintain,

McCaffery, good player developer-in game coach,

Crean, Trying to re-invent himself there...average in game for B1G, Miles starting to show recruiting wise-jury out on x & o's portion,

Collins will be the next big name and will get a bigger "gig" within 3 years,

Pitino and Groce average and tied imo,

Chambers as done about all he could do with talent there...

Jordan is just horrendous on all fronts as a coach...he is still there, well because no one else may want it...

Xs and O's will take care of themselves if you get the Jimmies and Joes. Miles is the best thing to happen to NU basketball for a long time. Recruiting an effective big is EVERYBODY's biggest problem and NU is no exception. We probably are going to have to try to build them.
