Offense 1st coaches struggle when they don't have the pieces they need on O

Danny Manning had a good season when he had what he needed with John Collins; Jim Christian had a good season with Jerome Robinson.

Brey might be one of the best offense 1st coaches, but even Brey struggles when he doesn't have the right pieces. He's been missing key pieces every year since the last Elite 8 appearance (a quality PG, or a scoring big, or enough shooters).

This is why a defense 1st coach is important for consistent wins over time. That's why Brownell provides more winning consistency than Brey. Brownell has a lower ceiling than Brey, but also has a higher floor.
