If Auburn wins today they will have beaten the number one and number five teams in the country in back-to-back weeks. Both of those teams will finish in the top ten.
If Ohio State beats Michigan State today it will be their first win over a top 10 team this year and the Spartans are not likely t...

Ill preface this by saying I'm sure that much of what goes into making up the general publics perception of these two coaches may be embellished, and certainly the way certain incidents are viewed depend on a person's point of view. How much truth is behind them? Who knows.

Both are essentially based on real history with generous helpings of embelishment added to create a myth.
