    Don't understand how Frank Wilson is ranked that low.

    What has he done to be ranked higher? All he has is one losing season under his belt.

    I'd move Hopson ahead of Wilson and bump Sanford below Wilson. That'd be a net "no change" for Wilson in my book.

    That's 10 coaches with more impressive accomplishments than Wilson IMO.

    They certainly gave the Bulldogs some love!
    Helps that WKU and USM are in Ruston this year...

    J'Mar getting labeled as the third best qb in the conference as a sophomore with only one career start under his belt is remarkable. Also think they might have switched Veal and McKnight up in terms of position.
    Have you considered those Dogs?

    Yes, but their list wasn't based solely on accomplishments. He came in as a noted recruiter. The question was, could he coach and win? In his first year, without the chance to bring in his recruits, he took UTSA to its first bowl and gave UNM a good game, while also almost beating Arizona State. He doubled UTSA's win total in one year, and UTSA should be our biggest threat next year. Now he brought in a good recruiting class and UTSA should only keep getting better.

    I'm not saying put him at the top, just better than where they did.

    Other than WKU's new coach, who all do you think he should be higher than?

    Seth Littrell at least. Maybe even Bailiff at this point.

    Littrell took a flaming hot pile of garbage to a bowl game in his first season, a team that got humiliated by Portland State 66-7 and went 1-11 the previous year, arguably one of the worst FBS teams of all-time. Wilson inherited a much better situation than Littrell, and they essentially produced the same results in Year 1.

    Bailiff? He took Rice to four bowl games, won two division titles, and won a C-USA Championship Game. It's almost impossible to win in football at Rice with their academic standards, but Bailiff has found a way to put together a few winning seasons there with some trophies in their trophy case. That's a lot more impressive than Wilson's resume in my book.

    I didn't think Tech would be considered the "clear favorite" to win the West Division.

    Adrian Hardy? That's a surprise. I thought Teddy Veal was supposed to be our new impact WR this fall?
