Picked as one of the Top 150 Coaches in NCAA history. 96. Charlie McClendon, 137-59-7 LSU (1962-79) McClendon led the Tigers to nine ranked finishes, but they won only one SEC championship in 1970. Because he had the poor timing to coach in the league at the same time as Bear Bryant at Alabama (whom McClendon played for at Kentucky) McClendon went 2-14 against Bryant. He led the Tigers to 13 bowl games, including two Cotton Bowls, two Orange Bowls and two Sugar Bowls. ...and to add was screwed out of playing #1 Texas in the 1970 Cotton Bowl.
