Who is the better coach?

I saw the poll just today, asking who the better coach is, between Duke's legendary Coach K, and Tennessee Lady Vols' Pat Summitt.

To definitively answer this question, it really is easier than it sounds...

Put Coach K in charge of Tennessee's Lady Vols team, and put Summitt in charge of the Blue Devils. Who would win more games/championships than the other?

I can guarantee to you, that it would be Coach K, and therefore we have a winner!

Men's and Women's basketball are two very different games, but the men's game is much more powerful and skilful than the women's version. As Coach K could easily handle the men's, the women's would be a walk in the park. As for Summitt and Duke, the mix would be harder, especially for a woman to control a bunch of boys in a men's sport. Respect points go down.

Don't get me wrong, Summitt was a great coach at UT and did what she could with resounding success, but asking who is better between her and Coach K? There can only be one answer...whoever coached the men.
