Silverfield should be higher than 11 based on recruiting alone which is the biggest part of coaching anyway.

Agreed. It appears they’re moving other coaches up or down based on 2019 results. Silverfield has no results ever so he has to start where he has to start. Hard to say he’s a better coach than so and so until he has actually coached a team.

I suppose it would have been more palatable if they hadn’t included him in the rankings. Just list his name with *1st year head coach.

Should at least be 10 with a returning veteran quarterback.

Basically he is an unknown and they didn't know where to put him. Look at it this way...if you were asked to rank your favorite wines and you ranked five that you knew something about because you had tasted them. And someone threw in the 6th wine from Portugal that you had never tried...where would you rank it.

Not a good analogy.

In collage your team depends on a decent quarterback. All good collage teams have a good quarterback nowadays.

He has a good quarterback.

The article was not ranking quarterbacks......it was ranking head coaches.

This is a horrible analogy. First, if one winery has had great wines for the last 5 years, they have the best climate, the best soil, the best grapes, they keep all their workers and the replacement was mentored by the person leaving, AND the replacement has a great track record prior, AND the replacement put out a tiny batch of wine which actually "scored" more points against a vineyard than anyone else had that season...

You can for sure guess that that they will be better than 3/4 of the incumbent others; many of which have never had a very good wine, and who don't have the same resources at their disposal right now.

It doesn't matter how many points it has if you don't care for Zinfindels and that was the 6th bottle. You know a little about the wine but not that particular bottle. So based on lack of knowledge (you have seen previous first time coaches fail) about that wine....you don't rank it in your top 5. I know a lot about wines.

I noticed that when I looked a second time before my last post.

Sure he is unproven. But he has a good team.

Chances are I would have more ability to be CEO of a large corporation than to build a large corporation on my own.

Maybe not a good analogy either.

RE: CBS AAC Preseason Rankings
It doesn't bother me in the least that he's the lowest ranked. It's not a reflection of the football team as we know they will definitely not be the worst team in the conference. This is essentially just the author saying that he's an unknown. Luke Fickell was pretty much at the same position a couple of years ago for the same reason and look at where he's at in this ranking.

Give it a couple of years and if Silverfield turns out like we all hope and expect, he'll end up at the top of the list where he would rightfully belong.

RE: CBS AAC Preseason Rankings
I don’t think this filler piece of fluff is saying that Silverfield is the worst coach in the AAC. It appears to be looking at prior records and this past season in particular. They don’t have that data for Silverfield so they give him the final slot. That all changes next year. As I said earlier, they really shouldn’t have included him. We could have easily found something else to argue about.

Also, it would have been rather rude to rank an unproven coach above any of our experienced coaches. Just sayin’

Yeah, because it's so uncouth to be a rude "journalist."
