In the last 29 seasons (not counting this year), Barnes has coached at four different schools and made the tournament 24 times. Two of those misses were his first two years at Tennessee, after he took over a dumpster fire. Another one of the misses was his first year at Clemson. And another one was the Covid year. What I’m saying is: the guy just flat out does not miss the tournament. He’s been a 6 seed or better 15 times in the last 29 years, and this year will almost certainly make it 16 times out of 30 years. He’s not a good coach. He’s a great coach.
