    How come in lists like these 1 is high and 100 is low but in normal counting 1 is low and 100 is high?

    I don't have a problem with it. It is kind of like hitting that big shot in horse to eliminate your opponent; you hit the shot, but you've got to prove it.

    Hmmmmm, would the rankings have changed any more if the K-State game had played out like it should have? I see KSU finished in the top 25...

    Doesn't everyone strive to be number 1? Besides, #1 is the best no matter how many are in your field.

    I was as pissed as anyone about that game, but Snyder belongs in the top 25 - probably top 15 - because, as Fran would say, "body of work".

    If the rating was for football programs today, would you take #30, just curious?

    I think the program is #30, he's overskilled compared to program performance. imo

    I agree...just trying to stir Surly up. I respect Coach Snyder as much as anyone out there and his body of work is second to none!

    There's a lot of Big 10 coaches in that Top 25. It's funny to have Scott Frost in there, and I'm a little skeptical of Chip Kelly also.

    That is not the point of what I said. the point was is the "number one" high or low?

    If I sent out 100 surveys and only 3 were returned that would be a low return rate.

    If I rated 100 coaches and you were number 3 that would be a high rating.

    Totally unrelated to this list, but that's a really difficult concept for non native speakers to figure out. There is nothing in the text to tell you if high or low is good or bad. Because it means the same thing

    Because foam fingers with 100 fingers is way too heavy and expensive.

    Because all lists/competitions are of varying lengths and you wouldn't be able to compare across the board results.
    - Hey, Matt Campbell was the 30th best coach (ie best in a list of 30)
    - Hey, I'm 15th best in my class (best in a list of 15 people)

    At least Snyder admitted after that debacle that the better team didn't win, and ISU should have won the game basically. Of course, that's easy to say when you're on the winning end of it.
