The 2008 Joe Biden Coaches award goes to...

Instead of handing out the traditional Player of the Year, Coach of the Year, Freshman of the Year Awards, we decided to try something different, and hand-out different types of awards.

The first award of this kind is the Joe Biden Media-savvy College Basketball Coach award. (Award not endorsed by Joe Biden). Those who watch the various cable news channels or read political blogs are familiar with the phrase: "don't get between Joe Biden and a camera", because if there's a camera in the zipcode, Joe Biden will find a way to be in front of it.

So which college basketball coach has won this award for the 2007-2008 season? Well, we'll give you a few sentences to think, before we announce it in the paragraph below. If you don't want to be spoiled, stop reading right now!!!

And the winner is.... *drum roll* John Calipari of the Memphis Tigers! Calipari has managed to find himself on just about every sports show on television, regardless of network affiliation. Just on Selection Sunday, Calipari had not one, but two interviews on CBS within hours of each other. And if that wasn't enough, he was also interviewed on CSTV's March Madness show. We haven't checked all the outlets, so he could have been elsewhere as well.
