[QUOTE]In Response to Re: What does Donahue have to do to keep his job? : HARVARD has more talented than BC, and a better coach, Jeremy Lin... 38 points with the Knicks, Jared Dudley never scored 38 points in his pro career with the Suns!

Better Coach? Let's look at the record. Amaker in 15 years has 1 NCAA appearance. Donahue in 12 years has 3 NCAA appearances.
Career winning percentage in the Ivy League: Amaker 59.7% Donahue 55.7%
Better Players? Not sure how to evaluate this but I'm sure that Jared Dudley and Jeremy Lin play no part in answering this one as last time I looked neither was playing on a college basketball team.
Better Players? Harvard has 9 players averaging more than 10 minutes a game. In terms of minutes played, freshman occupy the last 3 spots. The list goes Jr,So,Sr,Jr,Sr,Jr, F,F,F. Total - 3 freshman in top 9.
BC also has 9 players averaging double digit minutes. In terms of minutes played the list goes Jr,F,F,F,F,F,So,Sr,F. Total - 6 freshman in top 9. That Jr leading in minutes played sat out last year and is in his first season at BC.
I thnk it's safe to say players tend to improve with age and experience so how do we compare the squads? I do it this way - Harvard's won the last 2 head up games so right now, Harvard has the better players. Next year - I suggest we have them play the game and go with he winner. Fair enough?
