Also totally ridiculous for Roy Williams and Jamie Dixon, whose teams were either underperformed or just barely met expectations, to get more votes than Brownell. The UVa coach did a legitimately great job with a UVa team that nobody expected to win the regular season, but the other two actually coached their teams to sub- par seasons at their schools.

Roy Williams finished 2nd????!! ###!!! He has more talent on the bench than Clemson has starting. This is stupid and shows how biased the people voting are. Roy finished about where they thought they would. If Clemson had finished in 3rd, would BB have gotten more votes?

Bringing his team back from a horrid start. Not saying it's right, but that's probably what it's based on for those that voted that way.


Also, losing a couple of his best players,

including one they were not expected to lose (Hairston).


the team lost its best player


Posted: Mar 12, 2014 8:48 AM
 

with Hairston being an idiot over the summer.

indeed, when you practice with your best player and then he's gone, it changes everything. losing two of the top seven? that's a huge adjustment to make. i chalk up some of the early inconsistency to that

Roy said that Hairston was incredible in practice - most dominant he'd ever seen

Roy also said the off season was one of the worst times of his life


So, in summary, Roy whines a lot. Got it. *****

not as much as you whine about Roy


Posted: Mar 12, 2014 9:54 AM
 

let me know when you've been half as successful at anything as Williams has been in coaching


The horrid start was his doing. The players are who turned

it around.


Whoever voted must not have felt that way.***

Where do you think Brad should have been rank.

Such a coot

being the head coach at UNC and having the NC media fawn all over him.

I have no problem with Bennett winning the award as I feel he deserved it for how UVA has done this year. Brownell at least deserved second and far more than one vote.


Which NC media members voted for him?***


Posted: Mar 11, 2014 3:44 PM
 




We will never know


Posted: Mar 11, 2014 5:47 PM
 

because it's some state secret. However it is no surprise that a coach at UNC is second when almost half of the people voting are from NC.

http://www.wralsportsfan.com/my-ballot-and-the-voting-process-for-acc-postseason-awards/13467213/

To vote for the ACC awards and recognition, media members have to pay 10 dollars to join the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Currently there are 113 members and the strongest contingent of voters reside in North Carolina. There are 52 members of ACSMA in our state. Virginia is next with 20 with Florida the only other state reaching double digits in membership with 10. What about the newcomers? A combined 9 ACSMA members are in the home states of Syracuse, Pittsburgh and Notre Dame.

But go ahead and tell me how a team finishes 1 spot below where it was predicted to finish and the coach is worthy of the second most votes for coach of the year, but the coach who finishes 8 spots higher than it was predicted (by these same people BTW) is only worthy of one vote.


Why would I argue that?


Posted: Mar 11, 2014 5:49 PM
 

I don't agree with that.


Well, the ACC does contain four schools in NC.


Posted: Mar 11, 2014 5:53 PM
 

And doesn't have more than 2 in any other state, so it makes sense most of them would be from NC.


I'm surprised that there are 52 in our state....

didn't know we had that many newspapers left?

You mean getting his team to start playing the way they should have from day ONE. Hmmmmm, its takes a super great coach to accomplish that doesn't it, HMMMMMM!!!

Roy is getting votes from the UNC media. He would have

gotten votes if he had finished 10th. Brownell would not have had a horrid start if he had Roy's talent. Does less with more than any coach in the ACC.
