    Chris Low ranks the top 6 SEC Coaches

    http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/i...otball-coaches

    Veteran SEC journalist Jimmy Hyams of WNML Radio in Knoxville, Tenn., conducted a poll of 23 media members covering the SEC spring meetings last week in Destin, Fla.

    One of the things he asked was to rank the SEC's top 6 football coaches right now.

    Here's the way that vote turned out:

    * 1. Nick Saban, Alabama

    * 2. Steve Spurrier, South Carolina

    * 3. Bobby Petrino, Arkansas

    * 4. Les Miles, LSU

    * 5. Gene Chizik, Auburn

    * 6. Mark Richt, Georgia


    Given that Saban is the only coach in history to win two national championships at two different SEC schools, he was a pretty easy choice for the top spot.

    After that, it's a complete toss-up and about as subjective as it gets.

    The way I tried to look at it was who would be on my list if I were an athletic director currently looking for a head coach and how healthy that coach's program was right now. In other words, was his program headed in the right direction. Experience was a factor, but so was age. I also considered what that coach had done over the course of his career with a premium placed on how well he'd recruited and developed players and any obstacles he might have overcome.

    Keep in mind that this is a ranking that could change every year, but here's what my ballot looked like:

    * 1. Nick Saban, Alabama

    * 2. Bobby Petrino, Arkansas

    * 3. Les Miles, LSU

    * 4. Steve Spurrier, South Carolina

    * 5. Gene Chizik, Auburn

    * 6. Dan Mullen, Mississippi State


    Nobody's a bigger fan of what Spurrier has done in this league than me, but I had him a spot or two lower because he's 66 and I'm not sure how many more years he's going to coach. If he can get the Gamecocks back to Atlanta this season, and certainly if he wins an SEC championship at South Carolina, he would shoot right back up to No. 2 on this list.

    Leaving Georgia's Mark Richt out of the top 6 was difficult, but Georgia hasn't been Georgia the last couple of years.

    It's hard not to be impressed by what Mullen has done at Mississippi State in his two seasons there. He's upgraded the talent, raised expectations and has Stark-Vegas geeked about football again. They're selling tickets there at a record pace.

    And before anybody gives me too much grief about having Miles in the top 3, I'll take a coach any day who wins 11 or more games in this league four of his six seasons on the job. Miles is also one of the most underrated recruiting head coaches in college football.

    I found the football/basketball list hilarious. Mullen was not a top 6 football coach (below Richt) yet Stansbury WAS a top 6 basketball coach (above Grant)!??!

    I don't have an argument with the lists, other than this. I don't think it is realistic to rate coaches with almost no history.

    1. Saban
    2. Miles
    3. Richt
    4. Spurrier
    5. Petrino
    6. Mullen/ Chizik

    The reason I put Chizik/Mullen down at 6 tied is because both had a good year last year, but only time will tell how they do in the long run.

    The only Coach id take over Mullen is Saban. Petrino would be 3rd.

    Spurrier and Miles get way too much credit. Spurrier did great with great players at UF, but that's a school you have to be a complete moron to fail at (see: Kiffin @ UT) Miles has done great with the players he has, but have you ever thought for one second "Wow, Miles has done some beautiful coaching today"?

    Re: Chris Low ranks the top 6 SEC Coaches

    i'm very happy with Petrino, VERY happy.



    * 1. Nick Saban, Alabama. Two schools, two NC. yeah, hard to beat that.

    * 2. Bobby Petrino, Arkansas. Admit it, none of you feel good about beating Arkansas in the near future.

    * 3. Dan Mullen, Mississippi State. I just like Mullen for some reason.

    * 4. Steve Spurrier, South Carolina. History.

    * 5. Mark Richt, UGA.I don't like his style of play, but his history says he's more than solid.

    * 6. Gene Chizik, Auburn. Hate the douchebag, but he did win a NC by building a solid staff.


    12. TIE* Nutt/Miles: Both are total ****ing retards.
