Bleacher Report's Ben Kercheval recently wrote an article covering who he believed to be the four greatest coaches in college football history. His choices were:

-Paul "Bear" Bryant

-Tom Osborne

-Bobby Bowden

-Pop Warner

Here's a link to the article: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2176846-the-mount-rushmore-of-college...

Personally, my MR of Coaches would have to be:

-Fielding Yost (Despite coaching scUM in a weak era, the man led them to 6 National Titles, including a four year stretch).

-Paul Brown (The football world constantly forgets what this man did for the sport of football; to this day, his methods for running a football team, both in practice and on game day, are still used).

-Paul "Bear" Bryant (Basically the Paul Brown of the south).

-Bobby Bowden (Despite it coming at the expense of forfeited games by Joe Paterno, he is nonetheless the winningest coach in college football history).

I desperately wanted to put Woody on there, but I'm trying very hard to at least appear unbiased.

Who would all of you have?
