But Hope and Bielema are making their way up the list fast
OT: Most hated CFB coach
Danny "The Doucher" Hope is 3rd on my list.
Bielema is OK. I just hope he puts up 80 points on TCU. Because TCU messed up my ultimate, cream-dream match up of Stanford-Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.
It's really Oregon that ruined your dream.
I can't stand him. I cannot wait until we beat them again.
Short list of coaches I also don't like: Saban, Kiffin, Weis (I know hes gone but he was fun to hate), and Brady Hoke (just kidding).
thank you, thank you very much
Dantonio #1. My favorite Dantonio moment? Immediately after the fake field goal against ND when the field reporter grabs him as their running off the field....
Reporter: "That was a gutsy call coach!"
Dantonio: "Yes, that WAS a gutsy call."
Hooray for me. What smug asshat.
And then shortly after he suffered well deserved heart attack
That's a close second. Good call!
When the board gets tired of endless CC & DB threads somebody should post a "what's your favorite Dantonio moment" thread. Might get 200 responses.
Recently Bielema for running up the score and "getting even" with the UM DL.
Don't forget Bielema's idiocy with the DB who twisted Steve Breaston's knee but wasn't suspended, IIRC.
that we were taking cheap shots. Especially when it turned out that they were, in fact, the ones taking cheap shots.
I kinda liked Weis, he helped us out quite a lot
Hope. Dude's a tool.
Really need to drive over a banana peal and fly over a cliff
Those poor O'Doyles.
Danny Hope's pretty high up there for me
Just because Carroll is now with the Seahawks does not get him off the hook. That smug frat brah look on his face just made me want to punch things.
Frat brah? The dude always looks like the mom from the Brady bunch to me.
Looks like Owen Wilson to me
but if Owen and Leno had a kid you'd get Peteeeee! On many occasions, you could catch Pete down on hermosa beach trailblazing on his phone during the off season. Huge noggin! Talks a mile a minute too! Annoying as #$%^!
You had me at "this is kinda gross."
Urban Meyer for politicing Florida into the NC in 06
Bielema is morally unfit to coach college athletics.
im one of the few that like Kiffin.. weird right? but i didn't know much about him until the Raiders fired him and i never liked the raiders owner (or the raiders in general.. Chargers fan. GO BOLTS! (same colors as Michigan too..+ 1 for them) ) but i liked how he wasn't afraid to call out coaches and was as 'hot buttoned' as he is, he reminded me of Bo in that way. He like made people think about the Tennessee program once again and re-kindled the flame with their rivals. I think he left a big positive with that program. Tennessee's name is in the mix now because of him i believe..
-Bo never made excuses by blaming others
-Bo never violated NCAA rules
-Bo never sold out his team
-Bo didn't get to where he was because of his dad
violate NCAA rules, read his book he's quite open about it....
I kind of was following you until the "he left a big positive at tennessee." Then I realized you're a moron
Thats why he saved it until his last point.
But your point still stands... NO ONE in Tennessee likes Kiffin.
What's the point in chanting 'Fuck you Kiffin'? I mean, it isn't like he's there or anything. Just a random thought.
hey hey hey no need to call out names. I just meant like he made people think about the program again, its on peoples minds now. and when i referred to Bo, i was talking about how he didn't care to be "politically correct" like now and days. It seems like a lot of coaches are afraid to bash their rivals..like a prime example (and Im a RR fan for at least another year) is, i hate how he downplays our rival games to "its just another game" he's afraid to call it what is is and get everyone fired up and rowdy about it. Bo would try to slam them, Kiffin tried to also. Whether he was right or not he tried. so I was just saying, kinda like that about a coach.
He tried? He went 7-6 in one year before leaving the Vols high and dry, and "Tennessee's name is in the mix now because of him?"
In the mix for what? This is a team that went 383-151 (71.7%) under its four previous coaches. And Kiffin put them back on the map? Maybe you know something I don't; but I think Peyton Manning might have left a big positive. Kiffin left a big mess. They were 6-6 this year.
Why am I replying to you? You are dum.
Yeah obviously he did, you, me, everyone is talking about UT now. i don't need a history lesson on Tennessee, thanks though buddy. but for a while their the program was falling off the map and were engulfed by the LSU's, Georgia's, and Florida's in the SEC and not talked about when they should be. and before you insult me and try to tell me that Im DUMB, why don't you learn how to spell it first.
I am not sure what you mean by falling off the map. In 2007 they went 10-4 and won the SEC East ending the season ranked #12 in both polls. Tennessee is still talked about a lot, just like everyone still talks about FSU and Miami. They have had a few down years, but it's still a very prestegious school that garners a lot of attention, sort of like our team.
Yeah the NCAA has taken notice of Tennessee as well, as their football program is under investigation by them, due to the Kiffin era. And I know it is not just the football program that they are investigating, but the reason the football program is being investigated is directly due to Kiffin. Believe me the people here in Knoxville would rather not be talked about because of Kiffin, it is a negative, no one wants to be in the news because of negative publicity!
Everyone is talking about Tennessee...Umm, not so much, everyone is talking about what an ass Kiffin is. We were only talking about Tennessee when we thought we'd be playing them in the Gator Bowl now, we're just talking about what a tool Kiffin is.
Just cause people are talking about them doesn't mean it's a good thing.
That's like saying Lee Harvey Oswald did a good thing by shooting Kennedy because afterwards everyone was talking about him.
Tennessee has received WAY more negative attention then positive ever since they falsely fired Fulmer.
like there's a lot of unnecessary photoshopping in that picture. I get the joke but who switched on DK Mode?
Hidden Goldeneye reference for the win.
Other than Al Davis being an ass, I don't think anything in your post makes sense. Are you possibly living in alternate universe and somehow your post there ended up here?
I don't really mind Saban. Sure there's the disloyalty thing, but he seems like the kind of guy who always thinks he should be doing better. If I remember correctly, he didn't even smile after winning the MNC last year.
My problem with Saban is more with the whole massive-oversigning thing. Watching them go up to 95 scholarship players and then nudge guys out of the program to get "under the cap" by September gets old fast.
Agreed. I know I should hate the guy, but regardless of his shit attitude and sneaky persona, he is an excellent coach.
Personally, I CANNOT stand Urban Meyer. To me, he clung on to Tebow as if he [Tebow] was was the second coming. Annoying. Furthermore, his "retirement" fiasco last year did me in. Ugh.
Finally, although he isn't coaching college football anymore, I cannot stand Charlie Weis. Don't know what is was about the guy (besides coaching for ND) that I couldn't tolerate. Maybe it was the river of snot that constantly dripped down his nose during cold weather games, or his nasty sausage-like lips. Yuck.
Going after Urban Meyer for the "retirement fiasco" is a little silly. The man had health problems, decided to retire, decided instead to see if he could just cut back the intensity, got addazioed, and now he's done. This is pretty logical to me.
The Tebow stuff bugged me and the guy's generally an automaton and a prick to boot but going after him for the retirement thing last year is a bit misguided in my opinion.
I hate BK for they way he looks like his QB betrayed him after every missed play. I used to hate Spurrier but not as much anymore.
From a homer perspective I had Dantonio, Danny Hope, and Brett Bielema. I'm not sure if I feel like those guys should be universally hated though.
Nick Saban will have you and a kitten executed for that statement.
does Pete Carroll still count?
I always thought he was emblematic of everything that was wrong with USC athletics (of which there are many things going beyond football), and Kiffin just gets to pick up where Carroll left off.
Carroll definitely still counts considering the majority of the USC mess if not all of it was created under his reign of head coach
What's your deal?
pete carroll = gene kininmonth?
I'm sorry, but I believe the rumors regarding his role leading to Moeller uncharcteristically going off the deep end in 1995.
I have heard about Miles and another coaches wife... but not anything associated with Moeller.
The rumor is that he was "associated" with Moeller's wife.
Which reminds me, someone said on a different thread today that Brandon was on the search committee that recommended Miles. Was that a rumor, too? Because I'd have been hesitant to recommend Miles if there was truth to the former...
no one can top dantonio on my most hated list, but for the sake of this thread I would have to say Brian Kelly. Mainly for the tragic incident with the student dying at practice, he told the kid the weather was fine and he should be up there. I mean come on...
Eh, being dislikable and having a lack of judgment aren't necessarily the same things in this instance. I'm sure Kelly and whoever was involved feel absolutely awful about what happened and will carry it to their graves. Now if you cited him constantly yelling at his players and getting in their face, I wouldn't defend him as such.
What about tressel. I am so sick of him beating our ass.
you can't fault a man for successfully doing the job he was hired to do. i hate his employer, though.
really forced into the job though...I mean, he did pick to coach at OSU...you can blame him for that one.
You can hate what he's done to Michigan, and that fucking school he works for, but I have nothing but respect for him. Anytime he is quoted about Michigan, he never says anything demeaning or even aggravating (as far as I've heard) and I believe he only had supporting things to say about RR in the wake of the practice allegations.
There was a girl in my high school whose father was killed in Iraq. The man had some connection to OSU's football program way back in the day, and his family still had ties to the program. Upon his death, Tressel drove up to Grand Rapids to console the family and present them with a football signed by the team. I've liked the guy ever since.
So while I am instinctively inclined to hate everyone who even wears red, my perseption of the man is nothing but positive. Hate the outfit, not the man.
That's really classy on his part. I get the feeling that he is ok guy when he is away from football.
He's still the guy behind drug-sniffing dogs going through all the Michigan gear and casting Clarett to the curb when he had no further use for him.
I have a hard time understanding how anyone could fault Tressel for dismissing Clarett.
He's still the guy behind drug-sniffing dogs going through all the Michigan gear
Do we know for a fact that Tressel was behind that? It could have just been some security guys on a power trip.
where/which high school in grand rapids?
Forest Hills Central
Sorry to turn this into a Tressel respect-fest, but some might remember that he did an interview with a Columbus gay magazine and he talked about how he tries to teach his players to be honest to themselves and respect their teamates and people in general as human beings.
I read that was the first time any D-1 college football coach had ever done an interview with that kind of magazine and I thought, wow, much respect dude.
So I've had a hard time disliking him ever since then.
I only "hate" in a kayfabe way, like you "hate" a professional wrestling "heel," but here's my short list:
1. Dantonio. Between having a roster full of jailbirds and intentionally injuring UM players, there's plenty to go around. Also talks the talk waaay too much.
2. Tressel. Progenitor of Dantonio's code of ethics.
3. Danny Hopeless. And classless.
First class jerk interviewed for a job before Tubberville was fired. Hijacked Louisville each year for more money and then bolted ASAP for Atlanta.
Left the Falcons during the season abruptly to coach at Arkansas. Didn't even tell the players to their face (at least Kelly did that), but sent them a FORM letter. When Randy Shannon was fired, he started hand writing letters to the players whose performance GOT him fired.
He welcomed Ryan Mallett in and has kept him - if that doesn't tell you all you need to know ...
Okay, I hate Dantonio, Brian Kelly is a smug, arrogent, mean man ...
Chip Kelly is also arrogent, brash, and rude (but I do love his teams, and his practices - or what I've seen of them).
But yeah, I have to go with Petrino.
Dantonio is #1 on my list, then a tie for second with Hope and Bielema 3rd/4th is probably Urban Meyer and the ass end of the list is Kiffin. Appropriate don't ya think?
Dantonio by far. He picked a fight with Michigan the day he became coach. We never really responded. Time to put Dantonio in his rightful place. I hope Alabama squashes him.
is for Charlie Weis. He did not belong on the sidelines of a CFB game.
Miles (Assuming the rumors about him from the Moeller era are true, if not I guess I don't have much of a beef with him)
After hearing all of Meyer's whining in 06 while Lloyd was being so classy I've hated the guy. Glad to see him leave college football.
Kiffin: Guy is just a douche. He's a little drama queen who has no business being such a dick to everyone until he actually starts winning football games.
Hope: His trite little game he played after the game last year was ridiculous.
Bielema: Looks like he has to poop ALL THE TIME.
Tressel: I hate him for being so hard to hate. That bastard.
Saban: The dude is just straight up evil. He sells kids short and promises them everything in the world before taking their dreams away. Fuck him.
I don't really hate any coaches for being arrogant. Honestly, in this profession, it's hard not to be a successful leader and still be arrogant. To some extent, it means you're confident. It's when the arrogant causes harm to others that it becomes a problem.
I think that "I was just sitting here thinking about how much I hate Lane Kiffin" is one of the funniest things I've read on this site. It's comforting to know that I'm not the only one who does that.
Bielema is really hard to look at, and seems like a huge douche, but Wisconsin isn't high profile enough for him to be a high profile coach, so that hate stays within the Big Ten.
Saban is obviously evil, but does enough cameos and Gameday commercials that he may be salvaged in the public eye (that might not see his shady recruiting), despite abandoning a few fanbases.
In that case, it would have to be Kiffin. Kiffin has pissed off the entire SEC (with NEW! Rocky Top Rage!), made an absolute fool of himself on multiple occassions, and has never proven he is a winner. Plus, he has the good genes good looks, but with the slight chub of someone who's been indulged. All that + rumored nepotism = HATE
can I still vote for Jabba the Weis?
If not then: Dantonio, $aban, Kiffin
Kiffin and it's not even close
Mark Dantonio is the worst. I hate even looking at that dude.
This may surprise you, but my least favorite head coach is Brett Bielema. Why? Let's see the dude runs up the score on Indiana and Northwestern. He passed late in each game. He also went for two against Minnesota because it was on the so called card. Overall the man has no class and he is a total douchebag.
big arrogant looking douchebag who happens to be a drunk and always looks constipated. I actually think this guy believes he's on Michigan's level. 4 rose bowls in 100 years and even during a rose bowl year can't land anything but 2 and 3 star recruits.I can't stand Bielema or that Wisconsin program.
For his win at all costs mentality. Good luck to Michigan Ski-mask University against Bama.
Lou Holtz, forever and always. He is the Gretzky, the Jordan, and the Jim Brown -- all rolled up into one -- of douchy coaches. Kiffin, Dantonio, and Bielema can only aspire to attain the depths of Holtz's douchiness.
Also, Woody Hayes.
Also for being arrogant and pretty much an asshole.
I can't believe this guy didn't make the list:
OP, why were you "pissed at Tennessee for hiring Fulmer"? That guy definitely would have been my answer to this question before his axing. There's a reason he has a cup named after him, and then there's the whole (debatably true, of course) '97 coaches poll thing. A real asshole through and through.
I can't stand how the Vest is portrayed in the media after all the shit he has pulled. He is treated as this beacon of morals, and I dont understand why. Clarrett doesn't even have to be mentioned here. I think it's simply because he wears a sweater vest.
-Robert Reynolds gets a 1 game suspension after the most bushleague action I have ever seen on a football field. What he did to Sorgi was a criminal act, and he got 1 fucking game.
-Alex Boone was so drunk when he got behind the wheel that he passed out and smashed into a parked car. He is the luckiest son of a bitch on the face of the earth that he didn't kill anybody, or himself. Not only that, it happend on campus grounds which should have been immediate expulsion. Boone started the first game of the year against Northern Illinois, Vest couldn't even save some face and suspend him for NORTHERN ILLINOIS
-Doug Worthington plays in the first game of the year after his DUI, YOUNGSTOWN STATE! The vest has set a nice precedent that if you're a starter, DUIs don't really matter. Fuckeye fans can say what they want about Rod, he suspended Grady after his DUI.
-Ray Small getting 5 second chances
-Jesus christ the number of players that have been arrested under his watch
-Ohio State has that largest number of NCAA secondary violations, and the school that's number 2 is not even close. Not to mention, The COLUMBUS DISPATCH even broke that story
-Santonio Holmes gets in a bar fight before the Mich game Tressel states that it will be handled in the off season.
I hate Dantonio just as much for the same reasons. The way these guys are portrayed as running clean programs while Rod has been dragged through the mud for 3 years disgusts me.
I also hate Pete Carroll for being a smug son of a bitch, and ditching USC before the hammer dropped like the pussy that he is.
Lane Kiffin is so easy to hate that it's almost cliche. Sometimes I wonder if some of the stuff he says or does is part of an act, even leaving Tennessee the way he did.
Nick Satan is a pretty awful human being. To me, Saban's worse because Lane Kiffin just looks like a spoiled little brat who can't help being such a prick. Nick Saban is just evil, a large part of it due to oversigning.
- Lou Holtz - one of the biggest cheaters ever, yet still sanctimonious and disgustingly glorified
- Dantonio - another sanctimonious, overly praised douchebag
- Urban Meyer
Kiffin was pretty funny after the USC-UCLA game. Their RB (the name escapes me at the moment) went off, something like 200 yards and 3 tds. After the game in the interview, Kiffin looks all disappointed, no smiles, no expression, it was crazy. They ask about the RB blowing up and having a great day, and Kiffin says, yeah he makes all us coaches look stupid for not playing him all year. I laughed pretty hard about it, plus USC finished off a 6 team parlay I made that day. God Bless that UCONN kicker for hitting that 52 yarder.
Coaches I hate
Dantonio, Hope, Brian Kelly, Tress, Stoops (for not playing to win that Mizzou game, costing me way too much money) and I hate hate Nick Saban. Double Hate.
I think playing for Carroll would have been fun, he had energy, played jokes, had stars at the practices, and best of all, let you get paid while playing college football. USC always seemed to be loose, I think that was Carroll. And I like what he did to UCLA when he threw a bomb when the game was essentially over, the jawing back and forth with Rick Neuheisel (sp?) over that timeout he called, priceless. The reaction after that bomb was priceless too. Remember, Rick came in and called out USC basically, so it was fitting. Sorry, I live out west and get bombarded with the coverage.
I dont care that he doesnt coach anymore, he is worse than herby as an analyst
