I have read a lot of comments on how great Donnie Marbut is with the media. I also have read how Ken Bone is not as smooth with the media. That he is average. It got me thinking about the Pac10 basketball coaches and how they are with the media.
This was how I ranked them. It was more from a media perspective with a little of my own bias.
1. Montgomery (He knows his way around the media)
2. LoRo (Well spoken)
3. Dawkins (Has some charisma)
4. Miller (I watched a video where he rips the defense, which moved him up on this list, good for TV)
5. Robinson (Obama’s Bro-in-law, media likes that)
6. Bone (This could be bias, but has a quirkiness that can be amusing)
7. Howland (To P.C., I can fall asleep listening to him)
8. Sendek (I don't know what to say)
9. O’neill (I actually find him amusing, so I would maybe put him much higher, but I don't think the media always finds him amusing)
10. Atlman (Yawnfest)
It was actually hard to decide this. What are your thoughts? You can put your 1-10 in the comments below.
People love polls, so I thought I would put together a poll of the Pac10 coaches, so we can get an collective idea of who we view as the #1 media darling. This fall I will do this for football; I will enjoy ranking Kiffin, Neuheisel, etc.
