52 Days & Counting.....
The Musers hit on this, this morning and I was immediately intrigued. Sports Illustrated and The Sporting News(this is still a thing?!) put out their list of best and worst coaches of CFB for 2013. I'm assuming this is based upon either 2012 achievements or the last few seasons, because there is one notable omission and I think you know where I'm going with this. Without spoiling it, I'll let you figure it out yourself.
SI's Top Ten CFB Coaches - By Stewart Mandel
1. Nick Saban - Alabama
2. Urban Meyer - The Ohio State University(a little premature based off one season after a hiatus)
3. Chris Petersen - Boise State (really?)
4. Gary Patterson - TCU
5. Bill Snyder - KSU
6. Les Miles - LSU
7. Kevin Sumlin - A&M (similar to Meyer, sans hiatus)
8. Bob Stoops - OU
9. Bobby Petrino - Western Kentucky (huh?)
10. Art Briles - Baylor

Coming up in the coming weeks, we'll be doing our annual CFB Preview Mag reviews. Why? Because I like wasting money on them for your benefit and I like to bog down LSB with CFB. Duh.
