Glad to see the Sporting News was able to overlook that game against UMass in which Self had Teahan in the game during the closing seconds. (In case anyone forgot: Teahan ended up with a rebound underneath the basket. Too indecisive to lay it in and win the game, Teahan went through an odd serious of panicky motions before throwing the ball to a UMass player as time expired.)

Seriously, though, Self deserves the award. He's done a great job overall.

you see? the flying carpet is the best coach. He bigger than anyone. Memphis get xavier henry (crybaby) and john wall (prima donna) we still beat they little tennessee top-hat down next year-you will see. Minnesota-manhandle wad up silly opponnent with one hand, other hand holding his mouthpiece so he can smile as he dunk little orange ball into hoop. Twins will be very good.
