Ironically enough, I was considering going with Scottie Bowman before I settled on Herb Brooks.

Is that spooky or what.

He and my mother went to the same high school, though a number of years apart.

If you don't know about Bud Wilkinson, you should. His Oklahoma teams won 47 straight games between 1953 and 1957. Think about that for a minute. Its truly astounding. Heck, it almost made him governor of Oklahoma.

This tough Irish sonofabitch has not only won a slew of state and national titles, has not only sired two NBA players, but can boast a graduation rate in excess of 90% -- all of this from a tiny and perpetually broke diocesan high school in rough-and-tumble Jersey City, NJ. He never actively recruits, yet kids commute two-plus hours to play for him, kids talented enough to play at dedicated NBA factories like Christ the King HS. Hurley is terse and demanding. He runs his practices like a Roman centurion. He sets goals and expects them met. Most importantly, he tolerates nothing short of full-out effort. He's more than a coach: he's an educator, and a philosopher -- cast from the same mold as a Vince Lombardi or a John Wooden. We really need to find where guys like Hurley come from, and start mass producing them, 'cause we need leaders like him now more then ever.

For those who might question HG's selection, remember that Matty was the manager of the Reds for three years. He also coached under Muggsy for a few years.
