    Dat Boy. What a coach. I got him solid at #3. 1000% he’s in. He could quit tomorrow and should still easily be in.

    There’s no comparison there to me.

    I think Patterson should be without a doubt. His contribution to defense in football is profound. Personally, I just think both are better coaches. Dabo reminds me of Mack. Great recruiter, but I have no idea what he really adds to the program in development and Xs and Os. I will admit I have a bias against CEO coaches.

    To each his own. And you're absolutely correct, Dabo is a CEO type coach, yet extremely successful. If you're judging by innovation when it comes to X's and O's, he's probably not your guy, but if you're judging by wins and losses and overall results, he has to be included.

    You'll get no argument out of me. I think the guy is phenomenal. It hasn't always been that way though. I was ready to strangle him during his first 5 years. Trying times for sure, but well worth the frustration.

    Richt and Fisher aren't any better than the ones in the two groups below them IMHO. In fact, I'd take most of the others over them. Again, JMO.

    I'm sorry.
    I'm just not on the Gary Patterson bandwagon.

    If he keeps going it won't be a question. The first half of his career he seemed like a bumbling fool. He has found his groove recently. I just want to see if he caught lightening in a bottle or this is something sustainable. Kind of where people were on Mack and once he went back with Colt the HOF was assured

    True. I was beyond frustrated during his first 5 years. Losing to FSU and Sakerlina every year, losing to USF in a bowl game and getting blown out on the national stage in the Orange Bowl against WVU. Yea, I was not sold at that point, but since then he has been stellar and I agree, I want to see continued success.

    I'm sure it was frustrating. There were two reasons I thought Dabo had a good chance to make it...even though there was some issues those first five years.

    1. IIRC, he gave up some HC salary when he was first hired and diverted it to assistant pay so he could attract/retain quality.
    2. He was willing to take a chance and go unconventional when he hired a high school coach as OC.

    He won me over with those. He may not be all that great with Xs and Os, but those two things showed me he was smart in other ways.

    He hired Morris from Tulsa. They do seem to pump out solid minds from there

    True. IIRC it was Todd Graham that hired him from Lake Travis.

    But Morris was only at Tulsa one season so he wasn't overly "established" as a college coach.

    He has no choice. There is no belt made that can hold up against the waterfall that is his sweat glands

    I am hoping that after 15 more years of 10+ win seasons, that Paul Chryst will appear on these lists. Have to schedule tougher first.

    He won't need 15, but 3 won't do it. He will be if he stays at Wisconsin. What was Bielema thinking?
