All in the numbers

Indiana University basketball coach Mike Davis won his 100th basketball game, and the media seem to be totally buying the I.U. PR line that he's the "second-fastest in school history" to reach that milestone. Steve Straiger explains why the claim is nonsense. If you look at the number of games instead of the number of seasons (which is only sensible, since there are more games per season than there used to be), Davis is the fourth-fastest to reach 100. And how coaches reached that number? Um, well, er ... four.
