    Interesting exercise, to rank the likes of Bama against Appy against Yale against Mt. Union. I disagree with LSU being behind Tennessee and Penn State, who's histories of success are basically tied to a single coach.

    Fulmer, Majors, and the General. How many schools have that history? Barnhill was a good coach for them especially given the time in history. Hell, Doug Dickey had a winning percentage close to .750. (If I'm not mistaken, Majors had the worst record among them but we can't dismiss his title at Pitt.)

    And LSU had Bernie Moore, Paul Dietzel, Nick Saban briefly and Les Miles. Doesn't equal the coaching history of Alabama or Notre Dame but I put it ahead of Tennessee.

    Do you just dismiss total number of wins, conference titles, national titles, bowl records and wins, etc.?

    One thing for certain. Every coach listed in this thread is, or soon will be, in the Hall of Fame.
