If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that's what He's getting
Top 25 is a mighty big list to compile... I'll go Top 10 off the top of my head assuming you mean active coaches:
1. Nick Saban
2. Urban Meyer
3. Chip Kelly
4. Brian Kelly
5. Kevin Sumlin
6. Les Miles
7. Chris Peterson
8. Gary Patterson
9. Bob Stoops
10. Brady Hoke
1. Nick Saban
2. The SEC
15. Doesn't matter
"Because Bama now sucks just like FSU used to suck when we were getting dominated by OU. Does it make sense now?"- Sliger (FSU Fan)
Love the list except 10. May as well put Mattison there
ALL college football? Or just D1A? Because that one guy at the Colorado School of Mines is a good one.
Don't think I could come up with an entire 25, so I won't try. But one thing I've found in discussions of both college and NFL prospects, the best way to do a ranking is not a 1234 numeric list, but in tiers.
I know you're just trolling, but no. There's a number of good coaches outside the SEC that come way before some or most of the SEC coaches.
Tier 1: Saban, Urban Meyer, Chris Peterson (really wish he would leave Boise so we could see how good he truly is)
Tier 2: Chip Kelly, Brian Kelly, Bob Stoops, Gary Patterson, Spurrier
Tier 3: Les Miles, Petrino, Mike Riley, Sumlin
Tier 4: Hoke, D'antonio, Charlie Strong, Mark Richt, Muschamp
You forgot Gene Chizik ...I heard he's a real family man
I won't nitpick people's lists since I'm not providing my own, but I have to throw in my support for Bill O'Brien. If there's a coach in the nation who did more with less, I didn't see it.
The early losses hurt, but he certainly improved as a first-time HC during the year.

just under: Richt, Sumlin, Hoke, Beamer, Gundy
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
It's hard to tell based off of one season, but he has done nothing short of amazing. I'm glad to see PSU have a coach like him. He makes the situation much less painful.
Pretty good here. I would have Spurrier at around 10 though. Guy has done a ton with a program that was not good at all. He aslo did a ton at UF much more so than Muschamp will IMO. Muschamp will be a good one though just not to Spurrier's level while he was there.
colorado school of mines.never heard of him or the school, if he is that good why is he there and not in d1. did i get trolled

Glad to see Mike Riley getting some respect. Very good coach for what he has to work with. He is very easy to overlook.
Tier 1 - Championship winners
- Nick Saban
- Urban Meyer
- Les Miles
- Bob Stoops
- Steve Spurrier
Tier 2 - Program Consistency/ Conference Champions
- Chip Kelly
- Brian Kelly
- Mark Richt
- Chris Petersen
- Gary Patterson
- Frank Beamer
- Bill Synder
- Bobby Petrino
Tier 3 - Up and Comers
- Will Muschamp
- Kevin Sumlin
- Brady Hoke
- Jimbo Fisher
- David Shaw
- Charlie Strong
- Jim Mora Jr
Tier 4 - Good but not always consistent
- Mike Gundy
- Mike Riley
- Bo Pelini
- Dabo Sweeney
- Lane Kiffin
- Mike Leach
- Rich Rodriguez
- Tommy Tuberville
Say what you want about Petrino, but he did pretty good at Louisville and Arkansas, had teams in BCS bowls so I put him in the tier 2 group. Bobby has proven he can win, its his off the field issues that tarnish peoples view of him.
Well thought out. Solid list.
Any thoughts on Golden, just curious. Also Bill Snyder should be in the top tier

Hate to defend the fat turd, but Biema deserves to be on their. Prolly tier 4
Steve Spurrier top tier is laughable - good coach , but has gone down hill since his title at UF. Second Tier IMO
Overall 207–77–2 (.727) (NCAA)
USCe - 65-37
12–20 (.375) (NFL)
35–21 (.625) (USFL)
Bowls 8–10 (.444)
He's had back to back solid seasons at South Carolina and he won 6 SEC conference championships and a national championship which is why i put him in tier 1.
Les Miles is definetly tier 1
You are a UF fan that is why you have him at tier 1 - be honest
He has made South Carolina a top ten program, something no one else has done.
Spurrier & Miles are tier 2. So is Muschamp.
