ESPN college basketball analyst Dan Dakich tells Bill Michaels that a case can be made for Greg Gard as Coach of the Year in the Big Ten. 

"If I'm voting for Coach of the Year, I got to put Greg in there. Now to be fair, a lot still needs to be decided," says Dakich. "I think Greg has done as good of a job as anybody in the Big Ten."

Dakich also spoke very frank about the return of Bobby Knight to Indiana University. "I don't really care. I don't like the man. I don't respect the man. It didn't make a bit of a difference to me of whether he came back or didn't come back. In fact, I felt it to be a little ridiculous." 

Also discussed in their conversation:

- Is the Big Ten the best conference in the country?

- How many teams in the Big Ten could play in the Big Dance?

- Are the Dayton Flyers this year's Cinderella team?
