Best College Football Jobs

A long ride in the car with Uchee the other day led to some interesting conversations, as they always do.  I have had the pleasure of spending 12 hours in the car with Uchee before, and our conversations never get old.  So spending 4 hours in the car with him the other day was a breeze.  Our talks turned to the ridiculous rumors floating around that Nick Saban would entertain the thought of taking the Texas job.  There are much more plausible rumors out there. But, that led to our own ranking of the top 10 jobs in college football.  We used a a broad selection criteria, such as prominence, tradition, fan support, facilities, ease to winning a national title, if it was a nice place to live, etc.  Lots of different factors.

Our old friend Kensington even got in on the act.  Here are our top 10 jobs, and like always, it is just our own opinions.

    LSU has got to be at or near the top. SEC sales pitch. Money and facilities as you’d like. Easy recruiting when they get in that atmosphere at night. Located centrally in a state that produces 75 or so high major college players a year, plenty with NFL caliber ability. And no other major programs are closer to their kids than LSU (as opposed to say Georgia, where kids in Columbus, or Valdosta, or Augusta, or Albany, are closer to other big schools than Athens). It’s a state that has a very proud culture, loves itself, and doesn’t have a lot of transient population (as opposed to say Atlanta), so you got a lot of kids who’s mama and daddy, and grandmamas and granddaddys, all loved LSU. And even better, you can supplement that with kids from Memphis, East Texas, Mississippi, and Florida. So your recruiting base is as strong or stronger than any one else. Plenty of money. Great facilities, and a school that isn’t that uptight discipline wise (see Mathieu’s failed drug tests, Hill’s arrests, among so many others). Doesn’t seem near as political as Texas, among others.

    I’ll take LSU #1 all day.

    Mr Sanchez,
    Please work more and write less. What or why did you feel a need to make such a reply? To bad sports and grit or what ever it was bombed

    Vanderbilt. Can’t beat the music city bar scene. Sorry, Athens…I love you…but Nashville has you beat. Also, you only have to win 5 games a year to not get run out of town. You get to recruit on the “SEC” line…and on the “Our degree means more than Tennessee’s” line. If you win 7 games, they’ll induct you into the hall of fame.

    Oh and did I mention you’re in Nashville?

    (Yes, as a country artist, I am biased in this one.)
