Self deserves coach of the year. Haith has a great argument but my biased opinion is that Self and Kansas earned it. 16-2 in the round robin league is pretty damn impressive and the only two losses were on the road to the 2nd and 3rd place teams respectively. But hey, we don't hang banners for this anyway...some might.
