Good list LCE ... Feels like that Top 4 is (at least) a notch above the rest.

Like where you got MC right now. Think our guy can be a Top 5 coach in the next 2-3 years if things break right

Noticed that Mike Norvell wasn't listed among LCE's honorable mentions or the coaches set to breakout

Assuming that was a rare oversight, right?

Kirby dumb goes no higher that number seven for me.

Yes he’s got the one ship, but there are way too many red flags, the only thing that overcomes them is his Alabama type roster, with five stars in the 3-deep. Give Danny Miaz that roster, and even he might stumble into the playoffs.

Remember when Kirby dumb was hired, the booster base at UGA went on high alert and started an unprecedented spending campaign to attract recruits, the bags were frequent and heavy, much heavier than what UGA was doing before, and probably surpassing Alabama’s spend.

There isn’t a coach I dislike more in college football than the Kirbster...

Except for probably Will Muschamp lol

Leaving Jimbo off completely (even hon mentions) seems laughable. Sorry, I'm in a Noles household and they have convinced me he's not bad at all.
He's done good. Don't get me wrong. But I think he has everyone fooled as to his coaching abilities. His recruiting classes up until last 2 seasons have always been over hyped and completely unbalnced. Hes a good coach but nowhere near #5. If he doesn't win big these next few years with what he's bringing in he should be let go.
