Poll of the week: where does Chris Beard rank among Power-5 coaches?

No Mark Few, no Jay Wright. Just Power-5 programs that have to compete with football.

Football is king at pretty much every Power-5 school in the country and conference schedules are always far more brutal than the WCCs of the world, so I think we understate the value of a good basketball coach at P5 schools quite frequently.

That’s what we’ll address in this week’s poll of the week—who are the best coaches in the country in charge of P5 programs? Where does Chris Beard rank among the likes of...

  • Coach K
  • Tom Izzo
  • Roy Williams
  • Bill Self
  • Tony Bennett
  • Scott Drew
  • Bob Huggins
  • Dana Altman
  • Chris Mack
  • Tom Crean
  • Leonard Hamilton
  • Archie Miller
  • Rick Barnes
  • Lon Kruger

Of course, I’m going to need you all to put on your objective hats for this one...which is why I refuse to even allow the option of putting him top-3 in the country on this poll:
