he is overrated and underrated at the same time. 14 straight ncaa tourney appearances. that's fricking GOOD. never does anything with them, though (only one final 4?). possible victim of his own success. he could have perenially been much less successful at texas and no one would care now. since he was pretty good for so long, people are finally pissed.
it's also tough to play in a conference that you can't win.
