Athlon ranks CUSA coaches, 2017
I'm surprised Wilson is that low. Would have expected him to be around 6. Would have expected Hopson to be around 9, but it hurt him to inherit a team picked to win the west and then not get it done. I don't disagree with 1-3.

1 - Skip Holtz, LaTech
2 - Rick Stockstill, MTSU
3 - Bobby Wilder, ODU
4 - Bill Clark, UAB
5 - Doc Holiday, Marshall
6 - Lane Kiffin, FAU
7 - Mike Sanford, WKU
8 - Butch Davis, FIU
9 - David Bailiff, Rice
10 - Seth Littrell, UNT
11 - Frank Wilson, UTSA
12 - Jay Hopson, USM
13 - Sean Kugler, UTEP
14 - Brad Lambert, UNCC

WIlder being 3rd seems a little high, he is going to have to show something for me to be ranked that high...Also Wilson at 11 seems pretty ridiculous just based off last season...Sanford is probably about right, might drop him ahead of Lane though....Bailiff would be last for me or close to it...

It's easy to forget that ODU only just started football 8 years ago. Homebody opinion but I think he's just fine at #3 for doing all that he's done in the amount of time he's done it in.

I looked at the list and its arbitrary at best. Like how can the head coach of Vanderbilt be ahead of the top 5 of the CUSA coaches on this list? That's just stupid.

The article is titled "Louisiana Tech's Skip Holtz ranks near the top of C-USA." But he's ranked #1..... cmon Steven!

RE: Athlon ranks CUSA coaches, 2017
The list is what it is, and I find no real reason to have a complaint. I do find it interesting though, that WKUFan518 thought that Bobby Wilder "being 3rd seems a little high" at No. 3 with Wilder coming off a 10-3 season and a 56.7% winning percentage for his three years in C-USA -- while owning an overall 69% winning record for his eight years as a head coach. This while he found Sanford "is probably about right" at No. 7, with no record to back it up as this is his first year as a head coach.

Just -- interesting.

It's a really good thing MTSU's coach is ranked higher than ODU's on this list, otherwise we'd get another 20 page thread arguing over a meaningless preseason list 04-cheers

No, we disagree (most of us) that Stockstill is so high on the list 04-cheers
