It would be nice if they spelled his name correctly.

If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.  ~ Bruce Lee

Gry Pinkel agrees.
Orgeron is putting USC in a tough spot if he keeps winning.  He is a better coordinator than HC.  Can't see USC hiring him but they hired Kiffin so who knows.

I seriously thought that was taken from the original site, I misread.  My apologies.  I hate tables too.

Edit the HTML in a text editor, then copy and paste into "source" mode. Makes it a lot more tolerable.

All these names make some sense except Steve Addazio coaching a 6-4 BC team.  Why is this?

They play in the ACC which means they are the best 4 loss team in the country. They would be undefeated in the B1G.

He cured BC of the dreaded Walrus Disease

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Because BC was 2-10 last year.

Lane Kiffin must be ultra proud seeing Ed Orgeron's name listed.

I think there's an argument for Minnesota.  But maybe the issue is with the Kill/Claeys split, and who would really get it.

I thought Ohio State coaches were banned from winning (or even in the discussion for) any coaching awards?

They're only banned from winning them, their names can get mentioned to compare with other coaches to show what a good job coach from x school is doing.

JT won several national coty awards in 2002.  It's just the B1G coty that OSU is banned for life from winning.

If O'Leary wins, will he list it as a Nobel Prize/Heisman/Purple Heart on his resume?

Think its gotta be Malzahn or Briles

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

Hard to argue with either of those choices

I never saw a football player make a tackle with a smile on his face

Can't believe they left Hoke out again

We were born to love Ohio State and hate that team up north.

cutcliff sure has done a bang up job at duke, he seems to deserve it to me

Surprisingly, Kirk Ferentz did not make the cut.

That doesn't mean he won't win B1G COTY, though.

Duke's coach is going to win it...just like last year with tB1G coach of the year.  Wonder who will win that this year...I'm going with Wisconsin's coach.  Any bets???   I have a feeling Vegas will agree with me;-)  Just look at what history tells us about OSU's HC and winning the award. If JT can't win it after a NC, then I say it's going to Anderson lol!

Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.

David Shaw from Stanford should be on here because after all they just weren't playing Stanford football during their two losses so they don't count.
