Team preview: San Jose State
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
It's hard to imagine another coach in America losing as many games as Phil Johnson has the last five seasons.
Starting with a one-year head coaching experience at San Jose State, then a two-and-a-half year sentence as an assistant with the struggling Chicago Bulls and then back again for two more seasons of suffering with the Spartans, nobody knows losing like Johnson.
Throw in an RPI number hovering close to 300 and you might wonder why Johnson is still around to guide this ailing program. It's because his heart is in the right place. This feisty coach is doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that to get his courtroom in order.
