Meyer tops SEC coaching rankings (Nutt in top-5?)
The BCS has spoken with a new No. 1. Now, it’s my turn.

With multiple coaching changes in the SEC, ranking the head coaches has never been more confusing and chaotic. This list, which originated in 1990 in this space, appears twice a year. I rank the coaches 1-12, and while recent events naturally sway opinions to a degree, the list is a comprehensive analysis of the coaches and their current value.

1. Urban Meyer (Florida): Should there really even be a debate? Two national titles in the last three years. A relentless recruiter. His biggest challenge in the future will be trying to satisfy gluttonous Florida fans who now expect BCS championship appearances on an annual basis. It’s difficult to find a negative with Meyer (other than his school-girl crush on Notre Dame). Well, he is 0-2 lifetime against Tommy Tuberville.
