Last week Athlon told us their rankings of football coaches in the Big Ten, now they've expanded it to the entire country.
Hoke comes in at #12.
Other notables... Meyer #2. Beamer and B. Kelly ahead of Hoke. Miles behind Hoke.
For those of us getting a bit long in the tooth, the name Blair Kiel needs no explanation. To you young whipper snappers, he's Gunner Kiel's uncle. He was only 50 years old, and he seems to have died of natural causes, possibly a heart attack. RIP Blair Kiel.
Now that the highly positive Joe Mathis visit has been thoroughly analyzed (in multiple board threads below), I'm curious if anyone has heard anything about the other recruits that were on campus this weekend?

Update: Here's another story that includes additional details:
