How many games did they need to win? 10?? Good Grief. There was surely money to be made by sponsors of tournaments that would have included Bradley. Didn't they once win tha NIT??
My first year of coaching I won more games than the last two years combined. But I insisted the team not practice during class time and the farmers got me fired into the best job possible position, head coach both grade school and high school at Heyworth, Il. population 1000. 50 years later a clip appeared in the Bloomington Pantagraph calling me "one of the most successful coaches in Central Illinois".
Anyway, I pick North Carolina to go all the way.
