Nice blog LL.
Great topic and breakdown of extras at QB, WR, CB.

Very easy to pick a coach:
BEAR BRYANT. He is the Gold Standard!

Looks good to me, except that Steve Spurrier is too much of a crybaby for HM. I can't stand watching him on the sidelines, throwing his visor/topless hat on the ground every other play. I bet after a loss he goes home to drink a bottle of white wine, bury his head in his wife's chest and then cry all night long.

Large, I thought for sure we'd have a backlash from the USC fans this morning but all is silent....here. I'll give Pete Carroll props for recruiting. Thats it. He can assemble the talent, but just like Hollywood, I give them the big "thumbs down".  Pete Carroll for all time greatest coach? Give me a break.

To those of you who voted Pete Carrol coach of this team, I hope you come back and change your vote. I cannot believe all the hype that guy gets. Year in and year out he has the most talent, the most NFL draft picks, and yet he loses to teams hes supposed to beat. EVERY YEAR. Tom Osborne NEVER lost to Kansas, Oklahoma St., Baylor, and countless other teams he faced, and he was part of five national championships. I posted a link to a biographical perspective of Coach Osborne that I suggest you all read before voting. Thank you for this wonderful blog!

I will throw my vote for Joe Paterno. He has been coaching for so long that he is older then the dirt he walks on and anyone who can survive that long at the same school has to be a great coach considering how coaches come and go so fast. Also, I would love to see what he would be able to do with a team like this.

Any coach can win with this team.  So who do I want to play for at their pinnacle, not at the end of their career?  I go for either the Riverboat gambler Bobby Bowden or Steve Spurrier (even though i hate spurrier was a great coach..  Not saying either is a better coach than Bear Bryant, but slingin' the ball around the field going for fake FG, punts ect.  or playing 3 yards and a cloud of dust running 85% of the time tell me which way you would rather play.

So I say Bowden circa 1979-1993
