Default Re: Which Coach Will Reach The FF First @ USC

This doesn't even seem to be a close comparison, in my opinion. Coach Staley has built a legitimate top 20 team over the past couple of years, and is increasing the quality of recruits which will only build upon that. Coach Martin, unfortunately, inherited a team that is not even top 100, and is having to rebuild it from scratch -- there is no current pipeline.

Realistically, the Lady Cocks should be expected to be favored in at least their first 2 games in the NCAA Tourney, with only needing some good play and slight luck to make a final four. I can envision a scenario of the Ladies team in the FF. Right now, however, I can't see any scenario where the men's team even makes the tournament, much less is talented enough to win 4 games.

I really like Coach Martin and I think he is in the early stages of building a really competitive team. But Dawn Staley has already built a really competitive team, and just needs to take the last step or two.

It will take Martin at least 4 years to reach the current level of the Womens team.

The way recruiting is in the men's game and the fact that the upper echelon of women's teams are so much better than the rest of the pack, I wouldn't be surprised to see Martin make a few runs in the tourney in the next few years.

Staley continues to stock up on talent. You definitely need to give her the nod here. Martin is beginning a climb comparable to Mt. Everest.

Staley in the 2014-15 season when Alaina Coates is a sophomore, Aleighsa Welch is a senior and A'ja Wilson is a freshman. The following year or 2 years later we will win a national championship.

Staley has the obvious better chance but is still a player or 2 away to make a deep run. It's laughable to even discuss Final 4 and our mens team right now. That's like asking what are the Browns chances of making the Super Bowl.

I'm going to say Martin bc I'm betting on him getting Seventh Woods. It's a pipedream but a Stroman, Thornwell, Woods backcourt can take any team to the next level.

I think Coach Staley, but I don't think the poll is entirely fair, given that CDS has been here 4 years to CFM's 1. If they were more equal in their tenures, I think it would be a better poll.

Chose Martin for this reason. I feel like if you can get a talented team into the men's tourney, it's easier to make a run because of the one-and-done culture. Granted, I think it will be year 3 before Martin gets a team to the tourney, but I don't think Stanley's teams will have broken that upper echelon by that time either.

Coach Staley...further along in her program...and they appear to be consistent tourney invites.
Sweet 16 two years ago, just missed this year.
She gets a dominant big or two, with the shooters she is bringing in...Staley will have a good shot to make Final Four.
