Envy and jealousy, month of lists edition

CFN has its 1-128 rankings of college football coaches posted.  Its bit on Booch is classic.

37. Butch Jones, Tennessee Volunteers, 2013

Career Record: 71-44, School Record: 21-17

He’ll blow it.

Brevity is indeed the soul of wit.

    This ranking looks a lot better than Athlon’s. Les Miles at #5 makes a whole lot more sense to me than Les Miles at #28.

    I certainly hope he does. I’m convinced Butch is basically Jim Donnan with a buzz cut and more f bombs. We’ll see this year I suppose. This UT team has UGA circa 2000 written all over it from here.

  4. Considering that Kirby is at #27 without even one game as HC in his resume, the Dawgs should be favored by 10, LOL.

    His best win is over a team at home when the other team lost one of the top players in the Nation.

    • I thought they knocked off one of Spurrier’s 11 win teams in his first year.

        His second year (2012) he beat Spurrier 44-11 in Gainesville. At the time Florida was ranked #3 and SCar was ranked #9. SCar went on to finish 11-2 with a win over Michigan in the Outback Bowl. BOOM’s Gators finished 11-2 with a loss to Louisville in the Sugar Bowl.

    While the task of ranking coaches is impossible to do well, and nothing will please even a sizable minority, this is sooo much better than the pathetic job Athlon did. And I still feel putting any HC on this list with less than 3-4 years experience makes no sense at all. Like everyone, some of these may baffle you but when you get past a few WTFs, it is a decent effort.

    Without putting a lot credence in any of his picks, it was a fun read. The Booch comment was priceless and beautifully brief. But there were several that mad me spit coffee on my computer screen.

  8. Of all the lists out there that I’ve been able to find, this is definitely one of them.

    Butch Jones had Zika virus before they knew what it was. He was UTK’s third choice for a reason.
