    CBS Sports ranks just 4 SEC coaches among Power 5ís Top 25

    CBS Sports ranks just 4 SEC coaches among Power 5ís Top 25

    by Nick Cole
    SEC Country Staff
    May 9, 2017

    If the SEC is the best conference in college football, its programs are doing it in spite of lacking top-level talent among head coaches. At least thatís what CBS Sports is trying to convince us.

    On Tuesday, the prominent sports site released the first glimpse at its Power 5 coaches rankings. Writer Tom Fornelli unleashed No. 65 to No. 26 on the list, saving the top 25 for a future article.

    Among those outside of the top 25, we found 10 of the 14 SEC coaches. And many of them were pretty low on the list that includes all coaches from the Pac-12, ACC, Big 12 and Big Ten along with the SEC.

    The worst coach in the Power 5? That distinction belongs to Chris Ash of Rutgers. But there are only two coaches between Ash and the lowest SEC coach in the rankings ó Barry Odom at No. 62.

    Hereís a look at where the 10 SEC coaches were ranked.

    62. Barry Odom, Missouri
    56. Mark Stoops, Kentucky
    54. Kirby Smart, Georgia
    53. Derek Mason, Vanderbilt
    52. Butch Jones, Tennessee
    48. Ed Orgeron, LSU
    40. Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M
    37. Will Muschamp, South Carolina
    33. Hugh Freeze, Ole Miss
    27. Bret Bielema, Arkansas

    That means only Alabamaís Nick Saban, Floridaís Jim McElwain, Auburnís Gus Malzahn and Mississippi Stateís Dan Mullen made the top 25. Their positions within that list are to be revealed, but if we had to guess, Saban will be at the top of the list.

    If heís not, expect Fornelli to get more than his share of angry feedback from the Crimson Tide faithful.

    But letís go a little deeper into our critique of these rankings. According to Fornelli, five of the seven SEC East coaches are in the bottom 20 percent of Power 5 head coaches. And Purdueís Jeff Brohm (No. 47) ó who has not coached a single game in the Power 5 ó is considered better than Butch Jones and Kirby Smart.

    While Smart and Jones are far from perfect, they deserve more respect than that. Even Stoops and Mason led perennially mediocre programs to bowl games last season.

    I have never ingested an illegal drug, but I have consumed my share of alcohol, plus yours and several more.
    I am not suggesting Smart has earned a higher ranking, because he has done nothing to earn it. I am just saying that this list sucks. Mullen, really? He schedules four cupcakes every year. He has to win a whopping two SEC games to be bowl eligible, and he is a top 25 coach?

    It was moronic. They SLAM Smart and Jones yet somehow Gus is top 25? Just a terrible list that gives idiots like Cowherd more ammo to fire at SEC.

    The list, however, was based not on his opinion alone, but the position of the CBS sportswriters:

    Each of our five voters (Dennis Dodd, Ben Kercheval, Chip Patterson, Barton Simmons and me, Tom Fornelli) were free to rank them based on whatever criteria he felt to be most important.
