if you think that his bugs are powerful then why didn't he fight against garaa's sand in the forest of death? why he scared from garaa's sand ,because he don’t want to die like the rain ninjas.
To answer your questions:
1.Because the academy doesn't just focus on intelligence, you have to be able to perform jutsu too. Since Shino doesn't usually do normal jutsu, and Sasuke does, Sasuke got a better grade. Shino was still up there, maybe 2nd.
2.He actually is described as "a genius bug user".
3.He didn't fight Gaara because his team already had a scroll, so it would be pointless to put themselves in more danger. There was nothing suggesting that he feared Gaara. Happy?
Back on the current topic, definitely Kakashi. The reason Gai had more wins than Kakashi was that Kakashi mostly sidestepped the fighting and did stupid stuff, like rock-paper-scissors.
