The coaching carousel in college basketball is a constant topic of conversation -- the type of thing industry folks discuss as much as which teams might be sleepers for the Final Four. It's a fascinating topic, most agree. But the unspoken downside is that people either have to voluntarily move on from or, more likely, lose their jobs for the coaching carousel to annually spin, which means these conversations are sometimes uncomfortable because they're often directly tied to men receiving life-changing news.

It stinks.

So these columns are never fun.
