I still find it hard to believe that Fennelly has never won a Big 12 COY award with all the great seasons Iowa State has had since his arrival. When you have such modest coaching "talents" like Lisa Bluder winning Big 10 COY, (what, three times now?) it makes you realize how many very good coaches and programs have existed in this league for a very long time... and how mediocre the Big 10 usually is. It would be nice to think that Coach Fen will snag it this year, but I'm betting it goes to Mulkey. It isn't undeserved on her part, but it would be nice to see it go to someone who exceeded expectations rather than simply met them for a change.
Who determines the big 12coach of the year anyway?
I want to say the coaches themselves vote on all the post-season awards (POY, COY, etc.). Someone please step in if that's incorrect. From what I could find in old articles, that seems to be the case, though.
All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.
Glad you pointed this out that "Coach of the Year" , with a few exceptions that do not include our coach, goes to who wins the conference so it's really the "The Coach of the Team that Finishes First Award" or in Mulkey's case "The Coach Who Managed to Land Griner Award". Mulkey should only get the award contingent on her winning the national title, no national title no Big 12 award!
The award is handed out before the NCAA tournament.
Looking forward to CFH magic for the next bball season, Georges style.
