This is like asking whether Ole Miss has a better football program than Alabama because the Rebels strung together a few wins.
There is no contest between Rupp and Solinsky or Rupp and Withrow or Rupp and Hill or Rupp and True or Rupp and any of the other blue collar LRC favorite white-boys. Face the facts, in spite of your hate for Rupp, he's had the career you'd hoped all these other guys would have. Rupp produced when it counts and none of those guys did (except maybe Withrow but do you think he'd trade Footlocker for Rupp's hardware?).
P.S. Imane Merga says hi!
