This is an effort to use a different part of everyone's brain .... but still talk football !
With Urban Meyer leaving a lot is being said that the Florida job is the best job in America. I think "best" in pushing it ... but certainly an upper level team in the SEC (as well as nationally). Meyer was 65 - 15 in 6 seasons at Florida (2 MNCs). As they start naming potential replacements ... I started thinking about who are the top 3 college coaches - right now ?
If you look at each BCS conference the top coach may be:
Big East - none / ACC - Frank Beamer / SEC - was Meyer ? (god - not Saban) / B10 - tressel (ugh) / Big 12 - Stoops / PAC 10 - Kelly or Harbaugh (neither have a long track record) Outside of the BCS conferences - it has to be Chris Petersen.
So my top 3 right now .. probably (not in order) Beamer, Stoops & Petersen.
Beamer teams don't beat themselves / Stoops has delivered consistency (save last year) & Petersen has taken a nothing program to one that is discussed nationaly the last 3 - 4 years.
Who do you see as the top 3 college head coaches working today and why ?
Go Blue !
