I have looked high and low for a press release from CBUSA or NCBCA on who the nominees are this year for collegiate Coach of the Year.

My guess is the usual, Bill Straub, and Gordon Vadakin among the list?

Steve, maybe you can help with this one?
Thanks

I think im up for coach of the year, lol, but if i had to put my money on who would win this, it would be g.v. because of his history, and the great tape "teaching kids bowling" lol

Hey, thumbsup we'll look for your name among the nominees. lol Maybe someday?

Seriously, it would be nice to see
some other team name, and some other coach get
some credit for a change. WSU, and this is nothing against Mr. Vadakin, gets a lot of attention, and just because they're WSU. I'm sure there are other talented, informed coaches who have earned the honor. Hope one of them gets it.
(Just as I'm sure they are many other talented players on other teams, that also don't get the credit)

Steve, we'll check back. Thanks for working on it.

It's not looking too good. I've spoken to 5 writers and a couple industry people and mostly everyone doesn't know anything about it. Two other writers said they didn't think they were having this award this year but I haven't heard anything definite or official as of yet.

I'll get back to you when I know more. smile

Steve,

If you know how to contact him, try Karl Nickolai
who runs the college bowling website.

Thanks

Did a little digging myself and did manage to find out that the collegiate Coach of the Year Award will be presented tonite at the opening banquet of the IBC in Buffalo.

Let's hope the NCBCA, CBUSA, or BWAA, or whomever sponsors this award, will have the good sense to put out a press release after tonite.

The nominees for NCBCA Coach of the Year were:
Randy Widger, Wesern Illinois
Gordon Vadakin, WSU
Dan Dorion, Saginaw Valley SU
Mike Fine, University of Kansas
Mike Landrith, Arizona State

and the NCBCA Coach of the Year is......
Kansas' Mike Fine.

Congratulations and well-deserved. Pleased to see the someone has noticed the turnaround in the Kansas team these past 2 seasons. Coach Fine must
be doing a tremendous job. Can't help but note they beat the top 2 teams in the country on more than 1 occasion this season.

Great job to the others as well. Must have been a tough choice.
