I don't really pay much attention to their fans. They're mostly comical anyways. The team is always good enough to be listed as a respectable top 15-20 win for the good guys each year. Similar to TTUN

2 "Premier Matchups" = St. Rita's School for the Developmentally Challenged and NW South Dakota Tech

I believe we all know and love a certain gentleman who was the head coach of that squad..... Rumor has it he has Red Bull in his veins

I know it's rough on everyone, but with most of the coaches being older gentlemen in most cases (Mack Brown as the UNC example is like 150 yrs old), it's looking like it'll just be too dangerous. We're going to find out just how greedy a lot of folks are with this upcoming fall sports season. Because this thing doesn't appear to be slowing down until we have a vaccine.

Most overrated is Chip Kelly. Mike Bellotti and Pete Carroll/Reggie Bush set the stage for Chip Kelly to have success. Bellotti took the program to relevance and with USC going down the crapper after the USC debacle ending in Carroll "taking the job in Seattle". Pac 10 turned into a joke without a powerhouse in USC, so Chip's path became a lot easier. Then he shat the bed in the NFL and went to UCLA to "turn things around" to the tune of a 7-17 record in a very weak Pac 12. 

My second choice would be Charlie Strong because he Charlie Strong's every program he touches.

Third would be Matt Campbell. Dude has never won more than 8 games in a season and somehow had his hat in the ring for THE FREAKING OHIO STATE JOB when Urbs left. I realize this might upset some folks on here, and don't get me wrong, I think he is a pretty good football coach. But should he be the head of a blue blood program after going 26-25 through 4 years? Me says no. Ask Florida State how that worked out with them hiring Slick Willie who turned 24-25 at USF into the Oregon AND Florida State job. He and Charlie Weis must have the best agents in all of sports. (Didn't research if they have the same agent, but if they do, that only re-enforces my point)

Most underrated to me is David Cutcliffe. To turn a program like Duke into a program that has gone 57-46 and to 6 bowl games in 8 years with a division title is absolutely ludicrous. That would be the equivalent of turning Rutgers into a program that can compete for bowl eligibility and occasionally a division title.

Second choice would be Mark Stoops. Similar to Cutcliffe, he's taken a perennial poopstain and turned them into a perennial bowl program going to 4 consecutive bowl games.

Third choice (and probably most unpopular) would be Clay Helton. Now, before you slice my head off and rip out whatever might be inside, his 2018 squad was entirely decimated by injuries and had a freshman quarterback who should've been playing his senior year of HS. They came 18 points away from a 9 win campaign. Not exactly USC standard, but not enough to clip the guy in an alley.  He's won a Rose Bowl and a Pac-12 title and came a game away from playing for another Pac-12 title last year with a backup and sometimes third string QB. Another 8-5 season and he may deserve the negative criticism he's getting, but I think they're going to be much better in the next season, whenever that may be.

So strange. I don't recall there being a Fiesta Bowl last season? I also can't recall there being a BCS Championship game after the 2006 or 2007 football seasons either. It's a really weird coincidence that OSU didn't play in any postseason games in any of those seasons. So crazy how my memory works sometimes.
