Pitino had two more years and still had 2 fewer postseason appearances. Is that not obvious to you?

So Pitino getting a "Bye" in the Big Ten tournament in one year of his 8 years redeems him? He also had 5 Weakling Wednesday appearances in 8 years

"The difference in the Big 10 schedule alonecould knock Tubby down a few percentage points and elevate Richard a couple in terms of overall winning percentage"

How can you both subtract points from a person for a perceived deficiency and add points to another person in a comparison at the same time? You have to do one or the other. I can see you haven't spent much time in your life actually grading individuals.

Again, Tubby had two fewer Big Ten attempts each year. I'm confident that he would have done no worse than Pitino with the additional opportunities

I'm done here. I lack the patience to continue arguing with someone who is clueless to his own logical flaws.

Logic flaw? That's rich considering Weakling Wednesday didn't even exist during Tubby's tenure. Had there been more teams in the Conference, no telling how often they would have been relegated. They were bottom 4 twice.

The 14 team conference makes Richards 4th place finish, Double Bye all the more impressive. They finished better than 8 Big 10 teams. Tubby never finished better than 6 Big 10 teams

Yes, it is obvious regarding the Postseason appearances but I don't place much value on it. NITs that don't result in a Championship, I do not hold in much regard. Practically zip. To each their own.

Regarding the difference between the 18-20 game schedule (reducing Tubby's overall percentage and increasing Richard's) I was thinking in terms of mean/median values. I wasn't assuming Tubby would have to play a 20 game schedule nor Richard sticking with an 18 game schedule.

If Richard had got canned after 6 years (and just like Tubby following a year with an NCAA win) his Overall winning percentage would be have been .549. A little closer to Tubby.
