For the THIRD YEAR IN A ROW, Tom Izzo and Mark Dantonio have been named the best basketball/football coaching duo in college sports.

According to, Athlon Sports lists our boys at No. 1, with Duke's Mike Krzyzewski and David Cutcliffe at No. 2, with Alabama's Avery Johnson and Nick Saban in third place (sorry, Nick - take a look around - sucks to be NUMBER THREE, huh?)

The Big 10 teams have three coaching duos ranked in the top 10 and the SEC has three as well. The debate over who's better continues. Here's the story.

BTW - the Big 10 Basketball Tournament starts tonight. Coach Izzo and the Spartans will have their first game this Friday at noon. Here's the schedule from Sporting News.
