ESPN currently has a poll up asking who is the greatest coach ever. Go vote for Coach K!! Also, try not to vote for the obvious picks because every vote (no matter the rank) counts.

You only have to vote for your top five.

Picking 5 was painful. I went for the skew by choosing K and then likable to moderately likable coaches.

1. K
2. Wooden
3. Allen
4. Haskins
5. Pitino

The last one was hard... I had it down to Pitino and Summit. I probably would have gone with Roy before he returned to Chapel Hill.

Smith ranked ahead of K is idiocy.

Geez, it's hard to vote for any others after K. Guess I'll pick the old guys, too, and deano last.Calhoun? Ugh.

I tried, but ESPN's stupid ranker interface won't work here. Oh well.

Dean Smith is ahead of Coach K, as of right now.

VOTE PEOPLE.

Did my part. I LOVE how they spell out the name of every coach other than K. Too lazy to look up the spelling I suppose :)

So you would agree that Rupp is greater than Krzyzewski?

Or Wooden for that matter. ;)

Mine when a little something like this.

1. Krzyzewski (he's the only one ESPN did not spell out, that's just sad) - The statistics of his era are just staggering
2. Wooden
3. Knight
4. Summitt
5. Rupp
6. Smith
7. Allen
8. Pitino

1. Coach K
2. Donovan
3. Auriemma
4. Sutton
5. Haskins

Why you ask? Because if you want to increase Coach K's point relative to those at the top, then you should only vote for Coach K and then the bottom 4 in current votes. The question is whether you want Coach K to win or whether you just want to vote for your favorites.

It looks like you can vote more than once!

Please don't vote for Auriemma, he is an ^$%^$%^$%.

I agree so pick someone else that is low on the list. Also I voted more than once, but it did not increase the number of points/votes for Coach K. You probably cannot make a difference by voting more than once unless you use an alternate browser/IP address.

of note, coach K has a lot more #1 votes than Smith. Lots of Duke haters out there probably wouldn't put K in their top 5 no matter what, of course, an inordinate number of duke fans probably put K #1, but same should apply to Smith and unc. But Wooden and Knight are destroying everyone with the #1 tallys. Have to wonder how many Knight picks up due to events of yesterday.

Correct. Everyone should vote this way.

I could probably stomach voting for Billy and Eddie, but I just couldn't bring myself to vote for Geno.
