Alford, McKay crack list for sexiest men in college hoops

It isn’t often Steve Alford and Ritchie McKay crack the same Top 100 list pertaining to college basketball, at least outside of Top 100 past University of New Mexico basketball coaches.

But on Valentines Day, the folks at CollegeInsider.com unveiled the hard-hitting, stop-the-presses news of who they consider the 100 Sexiest Men in College Basketball (players not included).

And wouldn’t you know it, McKay, who coached UNM from 2002-2007, and Alford (2007-2013) each made the list, as did former New Mexico State coach Reggie Theus.

Of Alford, College Insider wrote:

I’ve always viewed Coach Alford as a no-nonsense guy who will tell you what you don’t want to hear. Those are excellent qualities. Over the years he’s also shown some terrific qualities as a head coach. Good things are around the corner at UCLA.

Of McKay, College Insider wrote:

The Virginia assistant coach combines friendly with “coolness.” A devout family man, McKay is a pretty quiet and reserved individual. He had success as a head coach and will likely be in charge of a program again one day. Really good guy.

Of Theus, College Insider wrote:

The former NCAA and NBA star is back in the college game. The head coach at Cal State Northridge is one of the sharpest guys in the business. Sure some of that NBA coin got him some serious threads, but not everybody can sport it like Coach Theus.

Of course it should be noted that any list that includes media members who cover college basketball that doesn’t include yours truly on a “sexiest” list can’t be taken all that seriously. Much like the NCAA Selection Committee, these guys discriminated against low majors.

By the way, you’re welcome for bringing you this very important story.
