Salvage Your Dignity, Mike Brey

There are lots of things to dislike about Notre Dame Head Coach Mike Brey.  First off, he was an assistant coach at DeMatha High School under Morgan Wooten, who had a long-standing feud with John Thompson Jr. throughout the 1970's, 80's and 90's.  In fact, Austin Freeman was the first DeMatha player to sign with Georgetown in over 35 years - odd considering DeMatha was the premier Washington DC high school and Georgetown was the top college in the area.  

Brey was also an assistant at Duke for eight years, right around the time Georgetown began to slide and Duke rose to prominence.  

Brey stole two Big East Coach of the Year Awards from John Thompson III.  He won the honors in back-to-back years (2006-07 and 2007-08), which also happen to be the two years Thompson led the Hoyas to back-to-back regular season titles for the first time in school history.  I guess those fourth and second place finishes were more impressive.

And Brey looks like a fool on and off the court.
