This is the worst rankings I have ever seen.
Michigan State University is the university of Michigan
So what has Hoke done that is better than Dantonio?
Same record last year, but Dantonio won the division and Hoke made the Sugar Bowl purely on the Michigan name, an event that was so laughed at that it ended the BCS. This year the difference was a last second field goal at UM to win by 2, a game where Brady Hoke couldn't even mustard a touchdown.
Beilein and Izzo? Get real.
Hoke did win the Sugar Bowl. Otherwise, I agree.
I have it on good authority that the rankings were determined by taking three categories for each school and weighting them in the following manner:
Football success - 10% of each school's overall score.
Basketball success - 5%
Number of fans that purchase Athlon products - 85%
Yep. I actually LOLed when I saw them at #2.
Honestly, why do some peeps worry about this shit? I've been an MSU fan my entire life, and I understand that when UM farts, the nation smells flowers. MSU makes their argument on the field/court. Winning those arguments are what I worry about--and the only ones that matter. Against their coaching staffs, the points have been made.
MAC/Bleacher Report level
Dumb list. And I'm still researching any accomplishments by Beiline or Hoke. Coming up empty......
Mike Brey, Lon Kruger and Anthony Grant. I know the football coaches at those schools have been wildly successful, arguably slightly more successful than Izzo. But Dantonio's accomplishments dwarf those three. Brey has been at Notre Dame since 2000 and has worn as many neckties as he's won conference titles.
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
Well, there was that time Beilein went to the Elite Eight, and turned a massive lead combined with 70% shooting from behind the arc into a loss. That's pretty impressive.
