    OK, Jimmy Olson's diarrhea got me thinking; who are the top college coaches of all time?
    Not just guys like Spurrier, but guys like Fielding Yost, Knute Rockne, this Heisman guy...
    So here's what we'll do.
    E-mail me your list of 15 IN ORDER by 5 p.m.PST Wednesday. I will post in time for debate by the time the parades hit on Thursday morning. 10 might exclude some guys who deserve recognition; points will be awarded as most polls with a 15-14-13....
    You can list them on the board all you want, but unless I get them in an email, they won't count.

    Questions? PM me...

    Re: Top football college coaches of all time -- your vote

    I think this is a great idea, but just to let you know this was sort of done in 2004 with "Dell Presents College Football's Greatest Coaches' Survey." It was a nationwide poll of more than 300 media, coaches, Heisman Trophy winners and online voters, just they only ranked the top 10.

    It think it went:
    1. Bear Bryant
    2. Joe Paterno
    3. Bobby Bowden
    4. Knute Rockne
    5. Woody Hayes
    6. Bud Wilkinson
    7. Tom Osborne
    8. Eddie Robinson
    9. Bo Schembechler
    10. Amos Alonzo Stagg

    (Actually, Robinson and Osborne might be our of order).

    I was wondering how long that would take.

    Wither Gary Gibbs? John Blake?

    And Barry Alvarez is still swimming in Don Morton's wake.
