No, no he's not. A good coach would have figured out how to best use Pruitt and Randle, would have helped bring the freshman along, would have had a game plan for protecting a lead with three minutes left, would have been able to teach correct free-throw shooting form, would have recruited better players,...
I am looking forward to your namesake falling way short of the final 4, as usual. I will forever associate Coach Weber with the 2004-2005 season and the joy and excitement that season gave us.

Talk about unfair...

Why does South Alabama get to play what amounts to a home game against a higher seeded team? They are a 10th seed for crying out loud!

Why does Davidson get to play what amounts to a home game against a higher seeded team?

Why does Kansas State get to play what amounts to a home game against a higher seeded team?

The tournament committee really screwed up with these selections.

They could have easily switched all these teams with other equally seeded teams and not given them these "home" games!

You were lucky to get the Kansas job. Kansas has been highly successful for years. Any adequate coach would be as good or better than you. Put you at Baylor or Iowa State and you would be a Big 12 bottom feeder.

I still have not seen you in a final four. The way you change jobs, I reckon you will next be in the NBA for the $$$.
