    The rankings are a complete joke!

    Saban deserves to be #1, but the Ole Ball Sack at #2 is laughable. #3 Richt has 3 more loses in five more seasons at both coaches current location and Sack has had one SEC championship game since the NFL demonstrated how worthless he truly is. If you go back to the turn of this century, then Spurrier belongs this high. But based on current teams performances, Sack is middle of the pack and the biggest Jackass in the NCAA.

    Putting Les Miles at #7 proves the author has no credability.

    If Saban is #1 as objective criteria would place him, then the contenders should have their records against Saban considered in the rankings, correct? Miles is a rare one indeed, since his record against Saban is fairly even, with a big advantage at Bryant-Denny v. Saban. Even dealing with no true OC, now with the legend Cam Cameron, with QBs and offenses which ranked 120th, and 100th in the past several years, Miles has performed well.

    The ranking of SEC coaches is apparently from someone who has little first hand experience with the coaches or teams they coach. A list which is actually from someone looking at the records of the teams and coaches against one another and especially against Saban/Alabama, would have a different ranking system.

    Yes, quite interesting to rank a coach who has won national championships behind ones who have not. Also interesting how coaches who have never coached a down in the conference get ranked ahead of ones who have and had some success. No need to waste my money on Athlon’s magazine–not that I ever do.

    I guess I am showing my ignorance, but I never heard of Athlon before, but apparently they never heard of many SEC coaches, except maybe a few rumors about them. They know Saban due to his great success at Alabama, but indicate through their rankings, that they do not know much else.

    Maybe Athlon is a golf magazine pretending to know SEC football?

    Actually Athlon has been around for a very long time as a football magazine, but A: Their preseason predictions are always waaaay off and B: They play favorites to areas where sales are higher.

    Alli: I would never rank a coach by how his team preforms against a single opponant (in this case Saban). I don’t rate a coach by any season beyond the last ten. If I did, then Sack might get a higher nod since he coached Pharoah against Moses.
