    Jim Grobe's defense this year will be scary good.

    He's certainly not tough to spot.

    Re: Top 10 college football coaches

    I guess it would be arguing semantics, but I think Tressel or Carroll could be interchangable at #1. I think they are both great coaches, and I would give the edge slightly to Pete Carroll, but I think Jim Tressel gets more out of less from his players. It definitely seems to me that Carroll has better players each year, while perhaps maybe Tressel is benefitting from a weak Big X?

    The only thing that frustrates me about each coach is that Carroll seems to routinely look past weaker opponents and sometimes gets tripped up by them, while Tressel will get a 3 or 7 point lead, and attempt to sit on it. I'd rather see Tressel go for the jugular and get at least a 2 score lead before he hands the ball off to the RB du jour, and settles for 3 and out series before putting a lot of stress on his D to hold the lead.

    Regardless, both great coaches.

    You should have put a warning on that link for those of us who don't like to look at Mack Brown any more than we have to.

    On another note, given the rumors swirling around USC, I wonder if Pete Carroll will be as highly-esteemed this time next year.

    That's a pretty good list.

    I noticed that no one named Dusty was on it.

    Anyone who went 41-9 at Lousiville has to be on the list. Scumbag or not, Bobby Petrino is absolutely one of the top 10 college football coaches.

    No way is Tressel one of the top 2 coaches in the country. I don't even think he's in the 5. He's a really good coach, but he's got too many limitations. His lack of ability to caoch in faster paced games is a glaring weakness that's been exposed in the last 2 title games. When Tressel ball goes awry, he has no idea how to react.

    I would agree Tressel is not the #2 gameday coach in college football. But with college as opposed to pros "coach" encompasses so much more...i.e. the recruiting trail and getting your players to play to their max potential for instance.

    So Tress is not in your top 5? So who is? I would love to see that list.
