    SI's Top 10 coaches of all time

    Since there was a thread about SI's top 10 schools I thought I'd add a thread about their Top 10 all time coaches. I certainly won't argue about their top 2:

    I think it is fitting that CPB and CNS are at the top. Each the greatest in their time.

    I see that Joe Pa’s off-field troubles kept him off.

    Re: SI's Top 10 coaches of all time

    Any list that includes Tom Osborne on as a top ten football coach is a list that isn't worth a damn.

    Barry Switzer has a higher winning pct than Osborne (by one point, but it's still higher), just as many national titles....and oh yeah, beat Osborne like a drum, winning 12 of 17 head-to-head matches.


    Here's your REAL list, folks:


    1) Nick Saban
    2) Paul Bryant



    MAJOR BIG GAP


    3) Urban Meyer
    4) Bobby Bowden
    5) Eddie Robinson
    6) Knute Rockne
    7) Bud Wilkinson
    8) Woody Hayes
    9) Joe Paterno (like it or not, the dude won over 400 games)
    10) Barry Switzer

    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    #2 passed #1 a few years ago.

    It's a WHOLE lot harder to win a national title when there's one consensus won by a head-to-head game than when there are multiple ones that rely heavily on voting.

    any list without mark richt is inherently suspect

    To me, win percentage is worth more than longevity. Frank Leahy deserves to be on that list more than Woody Hayes or Eddie Robinson.

    Or possibly the white belt and shoes. Urban Meyer is not a top 10 all time coach, maybe in the top 10 since 2005.

    3 championships, two different schools, with two different coaching staffs, in the best 2 conferences in college football. Add the 13-2 bowl record and the 187-32 W/L record and there are not 9 better - even if you squint and look at the stats sideways.
