Hat tip to Jay Bilas for this one, as Bilas tweeted: SDSU and Steve Fisher celebrated 400th win this season, too: http://t.co/lfe2ZkU. Does NCAA need to take off socks to count vacated wins?”And it’s true, San Diego State does include Fisher’s vacated victories on its school web site.
The web site lists Fisher’s record in 1991-92 season with Michigan as 25-9, when the NCAA says it is 24-8 because of vacated games in Final Four that year.
Fisher’s 1992-93 (31-5), 1995-96 (21-11) and 1996-97 (24-11) seasons were also vacated at Michigan, but that is not reflected on the San Diego State web site.
And here is Mountain West Conference saying that Fisher picked up his 400th career win this season. If you take out Fisher’s vacated games, he actually has 335 victories.
The NCAA instructed UK to stop including John Calipari’s vacated wins in its victory totals for the coach, and Kentucky today said it would comply.
Update: Kudos also to Lee Weatherly, who sent me this info yesterday. (I just overlooked it.)
Update: Connecticut does not include Jim Calhoun’s two vacated 1996 NCAA Tournament wins in his total record.
