Urban Meyer over Mack Brown? HA! Seven coaches rated higher than the winningest coach in college football?

Brown turned around the University of North Carolina, guiding a historically woeful team to three 10 win seasons in the tough (compared to Utah’s Mountain West) ACC. Since his departure UNC has quickly returned to losing 10 games per year and getting beat by Duke. Brown then tookover a Texas program that had fallen on very mediocre times and since then has won more games than any other coach in the nation. Consistently great teams, top national recruiting, a clean program with kids that (for the most part) keep out of trouble and represent the University well, two Rose Bowl wins, and of course a national title.

Meyer is a good coach (that I’m not particularly fond of) and will have success at Florida, but he has proven absolutely nothing yet. It’s also a bit of a joke for Charlie Weis to be that high on the list after a single season at Notre Dame. Would you have ranked Tyrone Willingham this high after his initial success for the Irish? Mark Richt and Jim Tressel are also both a little overrated. Look at their schools’ records before they took over compared to after, there’s not a ton of improvement there. Plus Tressel and Ohio State are constantly making news for the wrong reasons.

[tag]Mack Brown[/tag], Pete Carroll, and Bob Stoops are the top three coaches in football and in my opinion it’s not even close.

    Um, yeah. Pretty silly.

    Did you see the Heisman-douche try to swipe Mack? I’m inching through the bowl/season reviews, and we’re not to Mack’s best years yet, but he’s been nothing short of terrific. People forget how far Texas had fallen prior to Mack’s arrival.
