Maybe he wasn't overrated nationally, he was overrated in Maryland and apparently by most of the fans of other ACC teams on this board.
Let it go, I'll kill you on this subject.
You know, for someone who always says I have an ego, your attitude on this board wouldn't let you fit your head through the door...so you may want to consider that the next time you try to come at me.
Secondly, as I said, I don't really respect your opinion on this because of all the whining you have done about Gary over the years. Just as if Stoner(who is more knowledgable than you) were to come on here and call Gary the GOAT, because he loves the man so much...that opinion would only be able to be taken so seriously because of how much Chris admires GW.
However, when someone like Bilas(who has forgotten more about bball than you will ever know) believes Gary was a great in game coach, that says a lot to me.
I also believe it from my time watching him, although I obviously didn't watch as intently as you and others have because I am not a MD fan.
All of that being said, I am sure there are MD fans that overrated Gary too much. I remember some saying he was better than K for example..that's absurd IMO. So sure, if you want to talk about irrational fans who know very little, then I guess you can say some overrated him.
But in reality world, he was never really talked about much..and that is why he was underrated, as an in game coach.(recruiting is a different topic and perhaps, lack of talent is why he didn't win some of the games you talked about, not his coaching)
