What started as a fun adventure into the world of college basketball coaching legends quickly turned into a stressful deliberation that took nearly as long as it took Congress to pass the SirusXM merger.
The assumption was that this list would be easy to compile, analyze, and rank.
How horribly wrong that assumption was, because this year's list of head coaches remaining in the tournament is chock-full of coaching geniuses.
Some are up-and-comers, thirsty for a taste of blood. Some are well-established veterans, poised for a run at another championship.
Out of fairness, the sole criteria involved in power ranking these Sweet 16 coaches was past NCAA tournament experience.
Still, the list might surprise you.
