That is a fair point about other conferences. The Pac 12 and SEC probably don’t have a deep bench of coaches but I miss the days of there being a debate on which conference was the best, Big 10 or ACC, and those days are long gone.
I guess the main crux of my complaint about Big 10 coaches is of those bottom seven I don’t see much upside for any of them, at least a guy like Underwood you can squint and see a brighter future.
Thanks for the response and you are right, things would look a lot different if Indiana and Illinois were tourney or at least bubble teams (is Wisconsin really a blue blood Big 10 school?). I was just curious if I was being unnecessarily pessimistic about the state of Big 10 coaching or not.
