    Now that the playoffs are set who is your coach of the year? Throw out Saban. Bama fell short of expectations by their own standards. Dabo had Clemson on the cusp of a 2peat and did a great job in overcoming the loss of Deshaun Watson but the faux Tigers were still expect to be very good. Lincoln Riley got the Okies into the playoffs in his first season but Little Game Bob left him a loaded deck to play with. My choice is Kirby Smart. Second season he brought the Dawgs up from mediocrity to the playoffs.

    Some might say Scott Frost. From winless to undefeated in 2 years but would have done it in a real conference? We'll see what he does for the Huskers but he lacks the big time resume at this time.

    Kirby. He did in 2 seasons what Reicht couldn't do in 15

    Richt would've been in the playoffs in 2002 and 2007 and 2012 possibly.

    Richt. Totally spelled his name wrong. 2nd season at Miami makes my point, no?

    It might not be popular but given the set of circumstances we had it was the right call. At least all the Buckeye haters in the Big 10 and elsewhere are happy.
