Fair enough. I couldn't tell you the name of a baseball coach at any college in the NCAA other than Arkansas without looking it up...much less women's basketball.

So prob not a thread I should participate in.

I am with you on not knowing coaches' names. Which I think is most fans and why I didn't understand the premise of this thread. I am following only because it is Spring and good football threads are hard to come by.  ;D

Florida, Clemson, Wisconsin, UNC, USCe Among others.

CBB is weighing us down until he proves otherwise. (And that's not a fat joke  ;) )

Wisconsin doesn't have a baseball program.

Wisconsin doesn't have a baseball program.

Seems they don't.

A persistent question for University of Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez over the years has been whether baseball will ever be reinstated at the school.

That's a good one. I do know all of their coaches.

Football - Will Muschamp
Men's Basketball - Frank "The Tank" Martin
Baseball - Ray Tanner
Women's Basketball - Dawn Staley

Not a bad group there.

Ray Tanner is not the baseball coach at USCe.

OU (as much as it pains me to say it) is collectively a contender for best collection of coaches.

Men's:
Football:  Stoops, perhaps past his prime, but contends every year for B12
Basketball:  Lon Kruger, has top 25 recruiting class (we'll see what they get done)
Baseball:  Pete Hughes, has the Sooners on the upswing, ranked in top 20
Golf:  Ryan Hybl, has Sooners playing well, contending again
Gymnastics:  Mark Williams, has won 7 NCAA championship titles (competes this weekend for what would be 8, and their 3rd in a row!)

Girls:
Gymnastics:  K.J. Kindler, just won back to back NCAA championships
Golf:  Veronique Drouin-Luttrell , has Sooners in top 20
Softball:  Patty Gasso, Hall of Fame, has Sooners rolling--and they sell out their stadium
Basketball:  Sherri Coale, has taken OU to final 4 numerous times

Seems they have men's and women's hockey though.  Tony Granato is the men's coach and Mark Johnson of Miracle on Ice fame is the women's.  Not a bad pair of coaches.

Sadly, in the minds of many on here, everyone else is always better than us and nobody else sucks as bad as we do or is hated as much by ESPN as we are.  Throw in that we have the worst AD in all of the NCAA and you are set.  To admit that we have a great group of coaches, would be admitting that our AD knows what he is doing and is highly respected outside of 4-5 idiots on Hogville.

Don't forget the Refs hate us and nobody else either!

Who is Mike Martin and Sue Semrau? Seriously, never heard of em.
Who is Mike Marquess? 14 CWS appearances sounds good but once again, never heard of em.

You never heard of them because your sports orbit centers around the Razorbacks.  The OP isn't legit.  The answer is HELL NO!

I don't have to look anything up or know a single name to know we don't have the best collection of coaches.  While we have a good collection it also represents were we stand in college athletics in general.  We overachieve based on the size of our state but at the same time we don't put our best foot forward based on commitment of resources and fan support.  We rank very high in a lot of categories on the national stage as a program and we can be proud of our overall status.  However we are nowhere near the top in the top two programs and none of the other programs combined can make up for that.  Both of those coaches however still have time to improve greatly so we will see.
