Having Schembechler 20th and Urban 46th is objectively wrong. I cannot think of a reason why that makes any sense, unless you're bringing off the field stuff into it, and then Paterno wouldn't even be listed.

Yeah, if Urban isn’t top 20 at a minimum the list is wrong.

Yeah, I was just going to post this.
This list is all sorts of messed up.
ESPN has such a hard on for Alabama.
Wins do apparently matter. Mount Unions coach and Delaware’s coach in top 28 or so. C’mon.

why was "lovely" added to end of Lou's...
"he said he didn't want to coach as long as Rockne (13). Lovely."

Bear Bryant No. 1 is a disgrace!
Knute Rockne is No. 1 for building the ND legend from scratch and for his all-time wining percentage
