Mike Krzyzewski has more wins than any other active Division I coach... and he's rapidly climbing up the list of all-time greats. Barring a shocking collapse by his Blue Devils -- who will enter this season as the consensus number one team -- he'll pass Adolph Rupp (876) and Dean Smith (879) on the all-time wins list this season. He's closing in on the all-time wins record of 902, held by his mentor, Bob Knight.
