COMMENT: Coach John Chaney has been vocal critic of NCAA's Prop 48 rules, and low graduation rate may be in part a product of his championing at-risk students, but it does not speak well for his program. Otherwise, Owls are well-disciplined—they're too tired from 6 a.m. practices to get into trouble. Worst bit of behavior in recent memory was committed by Chaney, who confronted John Calipari, UMass's coach at the time, in press room following game in 1994 and threatened to kill him. (Chaney apologized and made up with Calipari.)GRADE: C+
