Coach O is the best coach in CFB, and here's why
I'll preface this by posing a rhetorical question to all of you simple minded fools who dismiss O: What in the hell do you think the head coach's job really is?

Head coach has two main functions for on-field success:

(1) Recruit: check
(2) hire a good staff: check

Many of you retreat to the narrative that Brady won this title, not O. Does Nick/Dabo/Kirby call Xs and Os on offense? Regardless, every head coach has either an offensive or defensive background in which case he relies on another (either OC or DC) to get his team halfway there.

O identified and hired a great young coach while completely revamping his offense, overnight. Why didn't Saban or Kirby hire Brady. Why did Kirby continue to run a Les Miles offense? BTW, Saban brought in Brady to run a clinic for his guys after the season, having clearly identified a need for his knowledge. Would have come in handy 9 months earlier no?

Lets talk game management: one of the biggest knocks against Les was his game management. You can't point to many gaffs by O in the last three seasons. How about 3rd and 17? You want to say that Brady called the play that beat Texas, but it was O who cut his guys loose to execute. He didn't hamstring them and tell them to run/punt/play D. Do you think Kirby would have done that? Not likely.

Lets talk Ole Miss: for those of you have have had the good fortune of working in the same industry for 10/15/20 years, are you not better, wiser, and more knowledgeable than you were when you first started? It appears O is.

I’m a LSU fan, but O is not quite up their with Dabo, Saban. He has to prove it over a longer period time. Yes, he’s a top 5 coach but not the best. With 1 more title I would possibly put him over dabo. Just not quite their yet.

Coach O has done it for one season. He's got a long way to go to over take guys that have done it more consistently. This is just silly.

There's more to being a head coach than just those two things

I’m just happy to see his willingness to adjust and not allow his ego get in the way of success. God damn you Les.

He has had 4 seasons at lsu as head coach.. he has one natty. Saba and dabo have been at their schools as head coach for a long time. Cant really compare yet, but he sure as hell trending in their direction

Yep. If he continues coaching the way he coached in 2019, he has a chance to be the best coach with the way he can recruit.

Somehow, I think you are missing the gentleman’s point.

I wonder how many people thought this about Chizik after 2010?

Chizik wasn't recruting at the level that O is and that was part of the criteria laid out. I think it's way too premature to proclaim O the best in CFB, but the Chizik comparison doesn't really fit.

That you don't understand how linear time works? How does his 2011 record play into what people thought after the end of the 2010 season completed?

Unless some drastic events have taken place, Auburn fans are not running around in time machines.

Chizik wasn't recruiting at the level O was and was still playing the prior coaches players anyway.

Anyone who thought 2010 was about Chizik should've known better.

Auburn finished #3 in the SEC for the 2010 recruiting class and #2 in the SEC for the 2011 recruiting class.

LSU finished #4 in 2019 and #3 in 2020.
