I consider Wooden to be very different from the other two you named. I wouldn't put them in the same category. Wooden, IMO, is the greatest coach of all time.
And IMO Wooden is in a league of his own, not for just his coaching accomplishments, but because of his character.
I'm not a UCLA fan, I say F UCLA. But Wooden....what can you say about such a great leader but admire it?
