I would disagree with your assessment of Cottle.

Your description of winning a lot of games in May, but not winning the title sounds more like a description of Tillman.

Cottle was a good coach, but my memory of him was MD would win in the regular season and always crap the bed in May. I remember discussing with Terp fans I know and they were frustrated and confused because they didn't really want Cottle to go because he was a good coach, but also felt like because he couldn't get it done in May he needed to.

Ok, I just looked it up. 3 Final Fours in his first 4 years, but the last 4 years ended with a first round loss and 3 quarterfinal losses.

So he started out hot but was trending down.

So maybe we're both right to a degree.
