Do you think the teams that are headed to the Sweet 16 are getting there through mamby-pamby “nice chats” from their coaches? I don’t think so. As a matter of fact, I saw Coach K take off his blazer (very unlikely) during the Michigan game yesterday and watched as he wiped his vein-bulging brow while he yelled out to the court some of the toughest coaching of the NCAA tournament. He had to…with about 2-3 minutes to go, Duke lost a 16 point lead, and it looked like Michigan was going to snatch the win right from under Duke’s nose. (Of course, not one hair on Coach K’s head was out of place…really incredible how his hair stays perfectly in place under duress). Yep…Michigan almost took it away from the blue devils, so it was time to shed the navy blue blazer and get down to business, and I don’t believe he was having a “nice chat” on the sidelines with his team. I would dare to say that Coach K (while he cares deeply about his players) does not sit down and say “Well…what do you think you should do?” or “If you knew what to do, what would you do?” in a soft, passive tone. Nope…he gets in his players’ faces and is sharp, quick and direct!
