I put together an SEC Power Ranking and the debate that was generated from one statement got me thinking. I wrote that the retirement of Urban Meyer left Nick Saban alone as the best coach in the SEC.
In this ranking, I endeavor to objectively rank the top coaches in the SEC. I graded each coach according to four categories: winning percentage, bowl wins, championships (SEC and National) and my own personal ranking.
With my personal ranking ("Pat's Ranking"), I came from the perspective of an AD, with unlimited resources, in charge of putting together the best football program possible starting with hiring one of the coaches in the SEC. It is a ridiculous scenario, I agree, but it was my attempt to objectify my subjectivity.
Each coach is listed along with his grade (on a 100 point scale).
