Bet you can’t spell Coach K’s last name

Dec 5, 2013, 9:43 PM | Updated: 9:56 pm

You could probably approach 100 college basketball fans and ask them to spell the last name of Duke’s head coach.

I mean, the guy has won four NCAA Tournaments, been the Naismith College Coach of the Year three times and has guided Team USA to back-to-back gold medals in the Summer Olympics. Household name, right?

Yes, but a household spelling? No way.

Even players who received a free education at a prestigious learning institution from Coach K can’t spit out K-R-Z-Y-Z-E-W-S-K-I.

Pretty good stuff.
