john-wooden-quote.jpgFormer UCLA head coach and motivational guru John Wooden turns 99 today, a remarkable feat for a man who's made a lifetime out of remarkable feats. Wooden, who in June was named Greatest Coach of All-Time by the Sporting News, is still a staple at Bruins basketball games and still the measuring stick all college basketball coaches are judged by.

The Sporting News poll was a bit of a landslide, as Wooden got 57 first-place as opposed to the 20 of runner-up Vince Lombardi.

Anyone out there have differing thoughts on who the best coach ever is?
