    I can see people like him and sherman being around there, but Pelini has never been a head coach. I bet Nebraska fans are ticked that he's ranked that low.

    Well of course. I mean, if he's coaching the Huskers we know he's automatically the best coach in the country...

    I don't understand why Gary Pinkel is ranked BELOW Dan Hawkins. Dan Hawkins is fun to listen to, but that has NOT translated into success YET. Gary Pinkel had his team knocking on the door of a national championship last season.

    Re: Ranking the Big 12 football coaches

    How can you rank coaches after their first year or coaches that have never coached at this level? Look who wrote it as well. He would have coach Mac in his top 5.

    Re: Ranking the Big 12 football coaches

    My ranks, based on what they've done in the Big 12....

    1. Stoops (OU)
    2. Brown (UT)
    3. Mangino (KU)
    4. Pinkel (UM)
    5. Leach (TTU)
    6. Hawkins (CU)
    7. Gundy (OSU)
    8. Chizik (ISU)
    9. Prince (KSU)

    I just think Prince is godawful.

    New guys? Who knows.

    At Baylor, yes, but he has been a very good coach throughout his career.

    2. Mack Brown, Texas. But Brown has altered his staff, which is what good coaches do.

    6. Gary Pinkel, Missouri. I love that Pinkel has been loyal to his staff, never buckling to pressure to shake it up during rough patches early in his tenure.
    I wonder if Pollard has offered the head coaching job to Brian Kelly yet...

    Re: Ranking the Big 12 football coaches

    We'll see the true state of Mizzou's program this fall. Daniel was an amazing player, the type who makes an average team good and a good team great. Had we not knocked Brad Smith out of the game in Columbia, we would have won that game and the north title. The kid as a soph just killed us.

    Makes me wonder about Pinkel's ability to judge talent or get game changers on the field. With an average QB they would have been 8-4 or 7-5 last year. (at least IMHO)

    These types of articles don't mean much to me. At this level, pretty much everyone can coach. (except for maybe Callahan) Success hinges on recruiting, injuries and luck.

    I remember thinking when Smith went out that we had the game won. After all, Chase Daniel was just a freshman backup. Daniel is an awesome player. Isn't he coming back for his senior season?

    I would agree with this list if Brown and Stoops were swaped and if you had Leach ahead of Mangino and Pinkel. Other than last year what have Mangino and Pinkel done? If Missouri would not of made that awesome comeback in their 2005 bowlgame, he would not even be there right now!

    I'm not convinced about that one, especially the way the last couple of years have gone. But if JP had hired Brian Kelly, certainly.

    At least he did give Chizik some of the props he deserves (but yeah, Chizik hasn't proved anything yet, other than he had a rag-tag team playing very competitively in the second half of the season last year)...
