Quick, don’t look up the answer: how many current SEC coaches are there who have won a the conference title? [Ed. note: edited to clarify SEC titles only.]
The answer is here.
Filed under SEC Football
Without looking: Nick Saban and Gus Malzahn?
Further shows how the SEC has lost its mind over Bama / Saban
Bielema won a few B1G titles and Freeze won a Sun Belt title. Booch has won 2 MAC and 2 Big East titles.
Only 2 have won the SEC though.
1 if you don’t count other conferences, which I don’t.
Shit it’s 2. I forgot about Gus backing in that year.
Backing in? He beat Bama in a play in game.
He had that strategically placed horseshoe.
Yes. I’ll stand by that. The odds of winning those last two sec games the way they did had to be in the trillions to one.
I would even go higher on the odds. Sometimes, things just go your way.
None from SEC East. Wow – That’s quite the reality check.
Two SEC championships, an attorney general and a love-struck governor…whoa Alabama.
Hey, do not forget the ex-govs in jail and the House heads in jail or headed there.
Quick, don’t look up the answer: how many current FBS Head coaches are there who have won a National title?
Dabo, Saban, Urban, Jimbo, and Stoops. Saban and Urban have titles at multiple schools. I can’t remember if Larry Coker is still coaching or not; last I remember he was at UTSA.
Larry resigned in January 2016. It is sad that only 5 guys have won a title, and three of them only have 1 each. The other two have a combined 8.
Glass half full: We’re due!
Glass half empty: We fired a guy with multiple SEC titles in a belief that it’s easy to accomplish with the right coach, but we didn’t try to hire a guy who has already done it.
That’s an amazing stat. I don’t think most CFB fans have a clue about that.
Saban’s legacy is going to be that he either drove complete innovation or he ruined the sport by causing so many people to try to replicate what he’s done. I’m thinking it’s a healthy mix of the two given the hires throughout the SEC East from his coaching tree, but it’s undeniable the impact he’s had with the way opposing schools such as Clemson and Ohio State have responded to that monster he’s built.
Does it count if they won as assistant? That would add Kirby, Muschump and McElwain. Oregeon, as many schools as he has been at I am sure he was part of a staff that won one but am to lazy to look it up?
