On overachievers and Rick Pitino’s best coaching job


Mike Miller

Being the underdog only gets you so far. At some point, you ignore the idea that you’re overachieving and simply start believing you can win it all.

At least, that’s what all four Final Four coaches are telling their guys as Saturday’s games near. Kentucky already knows it, and I’m sure Ohio State does too. Kansas spent all season getting used to the idea it was good enough to get here, while it’s a much more recent thing for Louisville.

As for the Cardinals, Vin Parise at SportsTalk says if Louisville does win, it’ll be the best coaching job of Pitino’s career.

Hm. Not sure Providence fans would agree with that..
