They are not ranking careers - it's an annual power ranking. After LSU's last season, you can't argue with it.

Miles behind Bielema and Pinkel? Miles has one of the best win % in sec history and the #1 ooc win % in sec history. List is shite.

Are they ranking careers? Because if they are,

Saban
Spurrier
Miles
Richt
Pinkel/Bielema

Are they ranking recent (last 3-5 years)

Saban - (five 10+ win seasons, 2 West titles, 2 time SEC Champion, 5 big bowl games, 2 time national champions)
Miles - (four 10+ win seasons, West title, SEC champion, NCG appearance)
Spurrier - (3 11+ win seasons, East title)
Richt/Pinkel - (three 10+ win seasons, 2 East titles)
Bielema - (two 10+ win seasons, division title, 2 time Big Ten conference Champion, 2 big bowl games)/Malzahn (10+ win season, West title, SEC Champion, NCG appearance)


Either way, Miles is no worse than number three.

Miles has 2 SEC Titles and a National Championship. Bielema, Spurrier, and Pinkel have zero of either at their respective schools. Laughable list.
