Jay Bilas on Coach K

"What people may acknowledge is that Coach had two bad years but I don’t think
they can fathom what it was like, how bad it was. I remember losing to
Wagner. People were yelling at him. It was a tough deal. People don’t believe this
when I say it, but I wouldn’t trade places with these guys. I wouldn’t trade that
11-17 season. I learned more that year, going through the tough things. I learned
more about myself, about life, about what it took to be successful than any other
five-year period in my life."
