I’m not sure what’s funnier, watching the SEC pundits try to rank this year’s group of starting quarterbacks or their ranking of the coaches. Actually, skip that – with Finebaum’s howler of a column today, it’s the latter. Here’s what he has to say about his third-best coach in the conference:
3. Bobby Petrino (Arkansas): After a stunning 41-9 mark at Louisville, fans are still waiting for Petrino to put it all together at Arkansas. On paper, his record in Fayetteville (13-12, 5-11 SEC) is unimpressive. However, fans believe this could be the year the greatness of Petrino comes out again.
By that standard, Dan Hawkins is poised on the brink of becoming one of Finebaum’s five best coaches in America.
