Being a major college basketball coach is like taking a daily bath in crock pot set at 450; you live in your basketball world 24/7, eating and breathing the insanity until stuff like what you're about to read below slowly starts making sense. Following the jump is a rather remarkable letter from Loyola, Maryland basketball coach Jimmy Patsos to Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon, and there's a sentence you don't often see.
Patsos has been taking some heat for his team's strategy against Davidson on Nov. 25, in which the Greyhounds employed a triangle-and-two defense on Stephen Curry, holding the nation's leading scorer without a point. Problem was, Davidson won the game, 78-48. The unique gambit was the talk of the media for about a week, and even PTI chatterheads Wilbon and Kornhesier chimed in (I didn't see the segment; I assume they disapproved). And that, thought Patsos, deserved a response.
