CBB's Cheatingest Coaches, per the coaches: Calipari, Drew


John Calipari & Scott Drew...the dirtiest coaches in college? That's what 100 coaches say. And it's not close: John Calipari (Kentucky): 36 percent Scott Drew (Baylor): 34 percent Ben Howland (UCLA): 12 percent Jim Calhoun (Connecticut): 7 percent Tom Crean (Indiana): 3 percent Dave Rice (UNLV): 3 percent Rick Barnes may be overrated but IMHO he's better for your program than a two-faced sanctimonious-twit-slash-two-bit-hustler like Drew. Or maybe just losing to Baylor is getting under my skin. Discuss.
