Berenson doesn't have any more a pipeline pull (the argument is due to geography more than anything) than any other major D1 coach. He has the same restrictions as any other program. I know about 48 other programs that would like to have the same kind of "failures" he has piloted in his 27 years.
He often laments why his program hasn't won more titles, but, that is more in reflection of his hockey coaching mortality. His 90's squads were awesome but so was his competition. There hasn't been any shame in losing-his players have gone on to become fine citizens in other endeavors. Every team experiences defections also, so that isn't going to be played here, either. Fact is, a handful of his teams have underperformed in the NCAA tourney. Some lost in a one and done where they simply got beat, others moved on when they shouldn't have. I don't know too many programs that have had that chance 22 straight seasons. To minimize his accomplishments is simply obtuse. The same tired argument was used against Bo Schembechler, too.
And how that compares to York is beyond me. He is a tremendous coach, probably ONE of the best all time. But it's ludicrous to crown him king of major college sports coaching.
