Geno Auriemma vs. Pat Summitt

How does Geno do record wise at UConn vs. Pat at UT? I know Pat has more wins and NCAA Championships. How long has Geno been coach at UConn? I know Pat dropped UConn from the regular schedule about 4 years ago.

Pat is mean; Geno is a douche

UConn has the same opportunity afforded all WBB programs, to schedule the toughest teams possible to not only improve THEIR image but to create the most exciting matchups possible throughout the WBB regular season..They choose to play a softer schedule than most top tier programs with the end result being this type of streak...Year in and year out, CPS and the Lady Vols play one of the toughest, if not THE toughest regular season schedules in WBB...Entering this season,47% of her 1,233 total games have been played versus ranked teams (582 total games against ranked opponents) with 423 victories versus ranked opponents:

Overall: 423-159 (.727)
AP Ranked 1-10: 174-120 (.592)
AP Ranked 11-25: 230-37 (.861)
ESPN Ranked 1-10: 131-77 (.630)
ESPN Ranked 11-25: 196-26 (.883)

Vs. Unranked Opponents
Overall: 614-37 (.943)

Auriemo is 735-122 overall, but just 127-52 against Top 25 teams...Only 179 games against ranked opponents...IMO not exactly a tough schedule for the type of program they project to be...

Geno might have the streak but IMO Pat Summitt has the respect..

A post I made in "Women's basketball is a joke" (still active BTW..You might want to read other pertinent threads before starting a new one..just sayin')

Now look at the historical placement of ranked teams in their respective conferences to adjust those numbers. Who does Geno dodge that Pat plays?

The inferiority complex that Lady Vol fans have is embxarassing

JT the numbers speak for themselves...You think Stanford, Notre Dame, Baylor, Texas etc. are not available for Geno to play?...C'mon man...The numbers speak for themselves, despite any claims about an "inferiority complex"...Simply not true

FThey beat Baylor,play Stanford in a week, ND is a conference match.

The inferring that Geno is using Mike Leach tactics for scheduling non conference games is absurd. Pat is cooked as long as the guy is around, just how it is.

Simply put, UConn plays 4 out of every 5 games against unranked teams while UT plays almost HALF of their games against ranked opponents...And you claim this "historical placement of ranked teams in their respective conferences" thing to explain that? I guess beating teams like Holy Cross, Howard, Lehigh, Pacific, USF and Sacred Heart( do they REALLY have a team named Sacred Heart?) is supposed to be impressive? And then "Mike Leach"??? comes into the equation?? Wow, talk about somebody having an inferiority complex...Geno is getting his due...Just be realistic and give Pat hers....Just how it goes.....

BTW, I have 3 friends named Howard, they stink at basketball too...Always a guaranteed win

I hate that Geno is racking up the wins. It is what it is. Their soft schedule won't show in the record books. I only hope the lady vols get a shot at them this year. We have to get alot better to beat them though. GLV!!!

Geno has 7 NC to Pat's 8.

Geno is 4-0 in NC games AGAINST UTK.

I believe the "soft" schedule is already showing in the record books.

I have enough time discussing womens basketball. I'm good for another 10 years.

I agree to a point. Geno is a winner. See some of the previous posts regarding their soft schedule. That is just a fact. The same fact that geno has pats number. No hard feelings here. I want them to play more often. It's healthy....
