That HeismanPundit fellow, what a card…
He’s posted his list of the most overrated head coaches in college football. After sticking up the usual carefully phrased disclaimer (Note: This list does NOT mean these coaches all suck…for the most part), throwing in a few guys past their primes like Bowden and Erickson and taking a gratuitous shot at Junior, he gives us Tressel and Miles at #2 and #3 with explanations like “sure, they’re successful, and sure, they recruit well, but…”
And that’s fine to an extent, but my only question here is, if that’s your frame of reference, why isn’t Pete Carroll on that list? Has anyone accumulated more talent this decade than he has? Has any program dominated its conference more in the past seven years than USC? And what’s he got to show for it over the last four years?
Oh yeah, in asking all that, I don’t mean to say that Pete Carroll sucks. Really I don’t.
