I agree it makes sense. Think of it this way, if you are mike krzyzewski at Duke, and you go 15-1 this season and your team is normally in the 13+ win range, then you just did what everyone expected you to do. Nothing new to see here. You've proven you're a good coach already and odds are you're playing with elite talent, but if you are Jim Larranaga at Miami, coaching a team that has not had 10 conference wins since 2001 and then goes 15-3, odds are you don't have elite talent and you have not only had significant improvement, but your record is pretty close to Duke's record. That should stand out. If Larranaga continues this run, then in the future, under the same circumstances, mike krzyzewski will win it.
