Craig's List: POTUS Brother-in-Law Among Most Overrated Power League Coaches
Oregon State coach Craig Robinson, beseeching the country for seven-footers for his welfare, was part of the Democratic Convention in Charlotte helping introduce sister Michelle Obama. Amid questioning whether the party was guilted into putting God back into its platform, a "Fluke" inquiry lingers regarding if Robinson gets a vacation from significant media criticism because he is brother-in-law of POTUS. At the very least, he should be grilled for taking a vacation during a major portion of the Beavers' non-league campaign while exploiting the poor in spirit (and ability) such as Chicago State, Grambling State, Howard, Montana State, Niagara, Texas-Pan American and Towson. Amid the "workplace violence," Niagara, resembling a Marine with a bayonet, is the only one of these seven sacrificial lambs ever to win an NCAA playoff game.
At least Oregon State is sufficiently God-fearing to know not to put Seattle back on its schedule after losing at home to the Reclassifying DI school, 99-48, in 2009-10. That regrettable result reminiscent of Reagan mauling Mondale has to qualify as the most embarrassing setback by a power league member thus far this century. It was perhaps as appalling as his brother-in-law failing to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister while giving money indirectly to the Muslim Brotherhood, fund-raising with Beyonce and Jay Z plus having time for gadfly David Letterman and being eye candy for "The View" vixens.
Let me be clear about the ideology as defenseless as the U.S. consulate in Benghazi! There is no need to be Clintonesque and parce "is is" words. No evidence exists that Robinson is on the verge of ending OSU's bump-in-the-road streak of 30 consecutive campaigns winless in the NCAA playoffs. At least Robinson doesn't chronically immerse himself in the Bush-league ploy of blaming his predecessor (Jay John) for the past four lackluster years. They are not in a binder, but following are some optimal "facts" why Robinson didn't deserve a recent contract extension because he is among the following alphabetical list of the 10 most overrated coaches from power six conferences (minimum of four campaigns at their current school):
Herb Sendek, Arizona State - No regular-season conference championship and only six winning league records in first 16 seasons in the ACC and Pac-12. Worst record in the nation among veteran active coaches in close contests (minimum of 125 games decided by fewer than six points).
