Although there's been no official announcement yet, a number of people are criticizing Coach K's decision to take on the Olympic job again. Latest: John Feinstein (it's good to see he's back at it after his bypass surgery), and Eamonn Brennan, who tries to have it both ways: wondering if Coach K should be recruiting more, and in the next breath, wondering if the gig is really "one more recruiting tool, more organic and germane than any softly lit American Express commercial could ever be?"
Well: where to begin. First, any argument basically comes down to recruiting. If Duke nails down a huge class this fall, that argument is hard to sustain.
