The top 5 Legendary Coaches in College Football History

In honor of us making our clients over $34,000 as of the half way mark of the college football season we figured it would be fitting to put together a list of the top 5 legendary coaches in NCAA Football History. Enjoy this one and dont forget to call 1-888-730-2667 for free Football picks.

The hallowed halls of college football has had its fair share of influential as well as controversial coaches. But only a few are legendary, leaving their mark, long after their time has expired.

Their names are whispered in circles of prominence and with respect and veneration.

Some of these coaches are known for their offense, some for their defense and some for their discipline, but they’re all iconic figures at their respective programs.

Every athletic director wants to hire the next legendary coach, and if they’re lucky, they’ll find someone who’ll achieve just a fraction of the success of the coaches listed below.

Five coaches who have cemented their places in college football lore make our list, and plenty of worthy candidates were left off. It’s also not entirely a reflection based solely on wins and losses, but more as an tribute of their entire body of work.

5. Barry Switzer , Oklahoma (1973-1988):157–29–4 --- Switzer is one of only two head coaches to win both a college football national championship and a Super Bowl. Frankly, it's hard to argue Switzer's success at Oklahoma. In just eight years patrolling the sidelines, he finished out his 16 season tenure with 12 Big Eight championships and three national championships while tallying up a .837 winning percentage, which is the fourth best of all-time. Switzer resurfaced in coaching in 1994 with the Dallas Cowboys wining Super Bowl XXX.

4. Bobby Bowden, Samford/West Virginia/Florida State (1959-2009): 377-129-4 --- Love him, or hate him, Bobby Bowden is -- Florida State football. The Seminoles were a paltry 4-29 in the previous three seasons prior to his arrival, and in just his second year at the helm, went 10-2. However, his most impressive work came between 1987 to 2000, when the Noles' finished each season with 10 wins and a top-five ranking in the polls. Bowden won both of his national championships and coached two Heisman Trophy winners during that stretch while collecting 12 ACC championships, nine of which were won consecutively from 1992 to 2000.

3. Glenn Scobey "Pop" Warner, Georgia/Cornell/Carlisle/Pitt/Stanford/Temple (1895-1938): 318-106-32 -- Perhaps the best early and most beloved college football coach, Warner was a pioneer and as well as an innovator. Best remembered for starting the Pop Warner Youth Football League in 1929, which today is still a national organized youth football program, he spent four decades as a coach in the early fledging days of football. Warner coached at six colleges during his term, but garnered the most success during his time at Stanford, where his teams won three Rose Bowl championships. Warner brought many innovations to college football, including the spiral punt, the screen play, single and double wing formations, the naked reverse, the three-point stance, numbering players jerseys and the use of shoulder and thigh pads.

2. Paul W. "Bear" Bryant, Maryland/Kentucky/Texas A&M/Alabama (1945-1982): 323-85-17 --Nearly three decades after "The Bear's" passing, his spirit still lingers in the locker room, tunnels and along the sideline of Bryant-Denny Stadium. During his quarter of a century in Tuscaloosa, he compiled 232 wins, including six national championships and 13 SEC titles. A football lifer, Bryant coached such notable players such as Joe Namath, Ken Stabler, John Hannah and Ozzie Newsome, and died just four weeks after his final game as Bama’s head coach.

1. Joe Paterno, Penn State (1966-2009): 394-129-3 -- A living legend, the 84-year old JoePa's career at Penn State spanned six decades. During that span he earned the title of the all-time winningest coach in Division I-A/FBS. No other coach has recorded more bowl appearances (36) and wins (24) than Paterno. He’s the only coach to have won in each of the Rose, Fiesta, Sugar, Orange, and Cotton Bowls. He has collect two national championships and five undefeated seasons along the way to becoming our pick for the number one spot on our list.

Top 10 College Football Preview

Though they were overpowered by Auburn in the 2010-2011 BCS title clash, the Ducks simply return too much firepower to be ignored in 2011-2012. They'll be challenged in the title race by some old standbys (Oklahoma, Alabama) as well as at least one superstar-powered dark horse (Stanford).
How does the rest of the Top 25 shake out?
Let's take a look as we the 2011 College Football season is just around the corner.
1. Auburn— The defending National Champion will have their work cut out for them in 2011, and have lost a huge amount of starters. Fortunately for them, they have a young quarterback Barrett Trotter in the wings ready to start as a sophomore, and a great running back in Michael Dyer. The only question is, ‘how will they make up for Cam Newton’s 4,400 yards of offense and 50 touchdowns they lost when he went first overall in the NFL Draft?’

2. TCU— The best defense in the nation is sure to have major setbacks this year, having lost their leader when defensive back Tejay Johnson graduated. They will most likely still be among the leaders in that side of the ball despite this, but the coaching staff has a lot of work to do on offense, filling holes left open when their stars moved on, including quarterback Andy Dalton.

3. Oregon— The offense that wowed its fans in 2010 will be back, there is no doubt. This is a system offense, and no matter who is carrying out the plays, the plays will still work. The Ducks will have a much tougher schedule this year, that includes an opener against LSU, but they will still be a contender for the Pac-12 title until the end.

4. Stanford— Perhaps the biggest surprise of the year is the Stanford Cardinal, and they will have their enormously talented quarterback Andrew Luck back for his senior year. Luck will also have the majority of his offense to back him up. Stanford has to be the favorite to win the Pac-12 behind the arm of Luck, who no doubt would have gone number one in April’s NFL Draft (Sorry Cam).

5. Ohio State— It is crazy to think that just a few short months ago, many were talking BCS title when they mentioned the Buckeyes. Nowadays, it’ll be a miracle if Ohio State can turn their mess around and actually have a successful season. Terrelle Pryor is gone, and unproven senior quarterback Joe Bauserman will take the reins. And with the departure of their head coach, it looks to be a rough year for Thee Ohio State University.

6. Oklahoma— Everyone is jumping on the bandwagon of the Sooners, and there is good reason. The majority of their starters are coming back on both sides of the ball, and their quarterback, junior Landry Jones, is a beast of a man. Jones could carry any team, but fortunately for him, he has a damn good team behind him. The only questionable area on this squad is the rushing attack, but with their offensive line, and a passing attack are sure to take pressure off them, any running back should be able to be plugged in and succeed.

7. Wisconsin— Every year, Wisconsin gets a huge wave of BCS predictions, but it never seems to work out for the Badgers. This year doesn’t seem to be any different. They have a really good team, but it isn’t likely they will make it out of the Big Ten undefeated.

8. LSU— A very underrated team, LSU had a great season in 2010, and was a play or two from playing for the National Championship. This year, they will have a majority of their starters returning, and will look to be better in all aspects of the game once their season opener against Oregon is here.

9. Boise State— The Broncos are in a great position going into 2011. They will have their starting quarterback returning in Kellen Moore, and will have an easy schedule in their new home, the Mountain West Conference, with their only test coming late in the season against TCU.

10. Alabama— Nick Saban has done a spectacular job with the Crimson Tide since rejoining the college ranks, but will have a tough season ahead after losing his starting quarterback and running back to the NFL Draft. It’ll be tough for them to get though the SEC-West undefeated, but if they do, they will be title bound.

10 Greatest College Football Teams of All Time

10 Greatest College Football Teams of All Time

With the 2011 National Football League season in limbo, not all is lost as the 2011 college football season is right around the corner.

That got us to thinking about the teams that have preformed up and beyond the norm, exceeding expectations and sometimes defying the "College Football odds".

There have been many "perfect" teams; that is, teams that went undefeated and untied en route to a National Championship. But the stars were never aligned for any team quite like these 10.

So, without delay, here is out list of the 10 Greatest College Football teams to have etched their places in the annals of Division I football history.

10. Oklahoma (1956)
So just how good was Oklahoma in ’56? Good enough to hand rival Texas its worst loss (45-0) since 1908, pounding Notre Dame 40-0 in South Bend, and beating up on the entire Big Seven by an average score of 49–8, middling about 47 points a game. Coach Bud Wilkinson’s squad went 10-0 that season, extending its winning streak to an all-time record 40 games over four seasons and bolstering Wilkinson’s record to 94–8–3, with a winning percentage of .910, and three national championships. The players were pretty good, too. Clendon Thomas led the nation in scoring with 18 touchdowns, while halfback Tommy McDonald and center Jerry Tubbs placed third and fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting.

9. Miami (2001)
All American running back Clinton Portis who racked up 1,200 yards on the ground, helped lead the Hurricanes to a 12-0 season and a national championship in ‘01. Of course, there were a few more names you may have heard of-- QB Ken Dorsey, offensive tackle Bryant "Mount" McKinnie, a wide receiver named Jeremy Shockey, cornerbacks Phillip Buchanon and Mike Rumph, and safety Edward Reed--all first-round selections in the 2002 NFL draft. The Canes scored 512 (42.6 points per game) points while surrendering only 117 (9.75 points allowed per game), and beat opponents by an average of 32.9 points per game--the largest margin in the school's history. They also set the NCAA record for largest margin of victory over consecutive ranked teams (124-7). Offense, defense, and special teams, this team had it all.

8. Oklahoma (1974)
After finishing the previous three seasons at either No.2 or No.3, Oklahoma broke through in 1974 to win its first national title in 18 years under legendary coach Barry Switzer. Oklahoma steamrolled its opponents that season, averaging 508 yards in total offense as halfback Joe Washington, the AP and UPI Offensive Player of the Year, led the ground-based assault with an average of 74 rushes a game, the most in Oklahoma history. Twice the Sooners won games by scores of 63-0, and 72-3 as an All American cast of defenders throttled the opposition’s offense. Defensive end Lee Roy Selmon (the NFL's No. 1 pick in 1976), Dewey Selmon (an All-American nose guard), and linebacker Rod Shoate (AP and UPI Defensive Player of the Year) where a force to be reckoned with, allowing just a single opponent to within 14 points the entire regular season.

7. Nebraska (1995)
All Nebraska did was win despite its off field personnel problems. Every week, for that matter, on its way to a second straight national championship. They averaged 52 points per game and beat their opponents by an average of 39 in that fall of ’95. It was the byproduct of a potent offense and a suffocating defense. Ahman Green and Lawrence Phillips, who ripped off tons of real estate against every opponent they faced, fueled the rushing attack. With the new bowl alliance in place that season, the Fiesta Bowl became the venue for a true national championship game --No. 1 Nebraska and No. 2 Florida-two teams with contrasting styles. By the half, the Huskers were well on their way to a 62-24 victory, one of the most one-sided national championship games in history.

6. Alabama (1961)
It was the year that Bear Bryant started on his journey to become an Alabama institution. Bryant had already proven himself 11 years earlier when he moved his Kentucky Wildcats-who were 2-8 just one season before --as far up the AP polls as No. 7, and then in 1956 helped a struggling Texas A&M football program, land at number five. So, it was no surprise that in ’61, he would lead his Crimson Tide to No. 1. Again, Bryant shaped a championship caliber team out of a squad that had completed the 1960 season, 2-7-1. The Tide went 11-0 that season, winning the Sugar Bowl, and their first national title while racking up 297 points and allowing only 25 under Bryant’ s leadership. Alabama went on to win five more national titles with Bear on the sidelines.

5. USC (1972)
After Nebraska’s hopes for a third national championship, as well as its 32-game unbeaten streak were crushed in a 20-17 road loss to UCLA to start the ’72 season. The Trojans would drive the final nail in the coffin by completing the regular season as the only unbeaten team (12-0), blowing out Notre Dame at the Coliseum (45–23) and Ohio State out of the Rose Bowl (42–17), earning them the No. 1 spot on the final AP poll. Tailback Anthony Davis scored six touchdowns against the Irish, while fullback Sam Cunningham scored four times against the Buckeyes. Only Stanford came within 10 points of USC that season, and that margin was nine.

4. Michigan (1947)
Although the two teams never met on the gridiron, the Wolverines were Notre Dame’s fiercest rival for the ’47 national title, trading the No.1 ranking back and forth three times. Michigan outscored their opponents 394-53 en route to an undefeated 10-0 season in 1947. The “Mad Magicians”, led by tailback Bob Chappius, wingback Chalmers "Bump" Elliott, QB Howard Yerges and fullback Jack Weisenburger, employed a razzle-dazzle offense that wore out spectators and drove defenses crazy. Often having the ball change hands three or four times on a single play. While Notre Dame (see below) were named No. 1 by the AP at the end of the regular season, Michigan’s 49-0 pounding of USC in the Rose Bowl, spawned an unofficial postseason AP poll that ranked the Wolverines No. 1.

3. Notre Dame (1947)
It was a good year for the Irish as they finished their undefeated season by trouncing USC 38-7 in front of 105,000 fans in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum en route to a No. 1 AP Poll ranking, a disputed national title, and a Heisman Trophy recipient. They were led  by three of the best players in college football; Leon Hart, George Connor and QB Johnny Lujack, who were supported by a cast of 41 players who went on to play pro ball. Lujack, who quarterbacked the Irish to three national titles, won the '47 Heisman trophy, outpointing Wolverine half back Bob Chappuis.

2. Nebraska (1971)
Considered by many to be the best edition of Nebraska football and possibly the best college football team ever, the ’71 Huskers became the only team since 1936 to repeat as national champions. Just a year prior, the Huskers were lucky to claim their first title after the two teams ranked above them lost their bowl games. But in ‘71, led by special teams pundit Johnny Rodgers who won the 1972 Heisman, the team averaged more than 39 points a game on offense, and brought out its No. 1 defense that surrendered only 8.2 points a game. With the Big Eight title at stake, Nebraska rallied to beat No. 2 Oklahoma 35–31, in what some have called the "Game of the Century." Then in the Orange Bowl, the Huskers extended their three-year unbeaten string to 32, beating Alabama on New Year's Day.

1. Army (1945)
After winning World War II, the Black Knights topped off a glorious year by completing the season with a perfect 9-0 record. The stars of the show were the duo of fullback Felix "Doc" Blanchard and tailback Glenn Davis. Blanchard, who ran for 718 yards and 19 TDs, won the Heisman in '45; Davis won it in '46. Each time the Cadets ran the ball, they gained at least eight yards. The season began with a 48-0 pounding of No. 2 Notre Dame at Yankee Stadium and then was culminated before 102,000 fans, as the Black Knights beat rival Navy in their annual Philadelphia classic 32-13, a game that decided the national title.

Honorable Mention: Florida (1996), Florida State (1999), Texas (1969), and Ohio State (1968).

There you have it, a tribute to the 10 greatest college football teams who were just a notch above the rest.

2011 NFL Draft Recap from Coopers Pick

Cooper’s Pick Top 10 Draft Recap

The 2011 NFL draft was a memorable one. Just in case you missed it, here are the top ten highlights from the weekend.

1. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was nearly booed off stage.

Fans chanting “we want football, we want football” voiced their displeasure over the ongoing labor dispute. I don’t think Goodell took the New York fans too seriously: Philly fans are notorious for booing Santa Claus but I’m confident New York fans would boo their own mothers if they got up on stage.

2. Christian Ponder goes #12 overall to the Minnesota Vikings.

Hands down the most controversial pick of the draft. Ponder was rated as second to third round prospect on a lot of boards, yet the Vikings tab him as the successor to Favre? The Vikes refused to back down afterwards, with new head coach Leslie Frazier tabbing him as the week one starter already. I’ve heard the echoes of Tavaris Jackson cussing after the announcement could be heard all the way up in South Dakota.

3. The New England Patriots look smarter than everyone else. Again.
I know, I know. You’re sick of hearing about how great the Patriots are. We all are, but it would irresponsible not to report on how the Pats continue their mastery of the league by trading down and refusing to restrain their cap flexibility with overpaid, unproven high draft picks. The Pats needed a pass rusher but refused to compromise their philosophy and trade up in the first round. Their late first-round selection of OT Nate Solder left a lot of Pats fans scratching their heads but this is the same franchise that has managed to draft Jerod Mayo, Patrick Chung, Devin McCourty, and Rob Gronkowski with there past four 1st/2nd round selections. Not a bad track record. More on the Pats later.

4. The Detroit Lions went retro. Retro Matt Millen.
No one can knock Lions GM Martin Mayhew for drafting DT Nick Fairley with the #13 overall pick. It’s what he did afterwards (WR Titus Yong at #44, trading up for RB Mikel LeShoure at #57) that reminds us of Millen. Millen always went for the sexy big name picks rather than addressing his team needs. The Lions have finished in the bottom four in pass defense in the league for the past four years and badly need a talent upgrade at CB. The Lions reverted to their failed draft strategy of pleasing fans by selecting well known position players instead of lesser known names at positions of greater need. It’s kind of like a unemployed single father of four who goes out and buys a Corvette instead of groceries for his kids – just doesn’t make sense.

5. The Ravens-Bears botched trade exposed an intriguing draft loophole.
Both the Ravens and Bears were understandably embarrassed after a botched trade attempt between the teams forced the league to allow the Kansas City Chiefs to jump the line and take the Ravens 26th selection while they figured out how to operate a telephone. The embarrassment continued when the player the Bears were trying to trade up for, OT Gabe Carmini, ended up still being available for Chicago to draft three picks later anyways. Kind of makes you wonder: why not pretend you “botched” a trade when you’re stuck with a high draft pick but don’t think there’s anyone worth drafting for the money you’re going to have to pay them? Just keep pretending you forgot to pick up the phone till your knocked down to a pick where you think you can get actual value. Just an idea.

6. Mark Ingram’s candid reaction to hearing from his jailed father was the feel good moment of the draft.
Yes, it was obviously set up by ESPN to get an emotional response. But it was a genuine moment and it worked. We’re so accustomed to feeling alienated from pro athletes because of all the money, glitz and glamour involved that it’s nice to have moments where you realize they are more than just people who can bench press you with one hand.

7. Ryan Mallett goes #74 overall to the Patriots.
A lot of once highly regarded players plummeted in the draft (Marcell Dareus, Greg Jones). Mallett, once regarded as the #1 overall prospect in the draft, fell the hardest.

“Things just aren’t right with him,’’ one NFL executive said. “Has the drugs and alcohol stuff. He can be a hothead. Carries himself like the 6-7 Eminem. He’s just a different dude. Maybe they can keep him in check. They can take that risk. We can’t.’’

Apparently, Patriots head coach Bill Belicheck was willing to roll the dice on Eminem’s 6’7 protégé. Mallett easily has the biggest arm in the draft and put up big numbers in the SEC, a conference widely known for being stacked with NFL worthy defensive talent. It’s a good situation for a Mallett because he’ll have the opportunity to study in the wings for a franchise that won’t allow him to indulge in any Ryan Leaf type antics. Score one for the Pats for nabbing a potential successor to Brady without having to pay for it.

8. Hype is still the deciding factor for where QBs get drafted

Prior to the BCS Championship game, Cam Newton was at best a late first round draft pick on most boards. Can one game (a game in which Newton was far from dazzling) really make that much of a difference? Yep, because it’s all about the hype machine – we’ve seen this before when Ohio State QB Troy Smith went from being a first round lock to being drafted in the sixth following a dreadful performance in the 2007 BCS Championship game. One game should never overshadow your entire body of work as a player but this year’s draft once again proves that it can so if you’re a high profile quarterback you better make the most of it.

9. The only selection New York fans cheer is Prince Amukamara at #19
No, it’s not cause the Giants drafted him. It’s because ninety minutes into the draft, Neanderthal New Yorkers were finally liquored up enough to cheer for someone -- mostly because he had a cool sounding name.

10. This one’s for the ladies: best dressed goes to Atlanta Wide Receiver Julio Jones for wearing a silver bowtie.
The NFL draft is traditionally an appropriate venue to establish new fashion faux paus. Jones’ grey and white striped suit coupled with a ‘bama red button up shirt underneath was fitting considering the fact he got to don the Falcons’ red cap to top it off. How come none of the beefy linemen ever wear bowties? OK, this Iist is officially over.
