That's not too bad considering the brain damage he has from the paint fumes in his beard.

They should have at least a 40-50 game minimum for this stat. I mean look at Saban's record. It shits on Day's.

With some teams arguably over-rated before and into the season, the useful stat would be record against teams that ENDED the season ranked. Beating a team that the poll voters like, but that turns out to be mediocre, isn't the same.

That stat means nothing. Of course the top ranked teams are going to have a good record against ranked teams below them.

Do a ranking of coaches who have beat teams that were ranked higher than them. That would give you a better indication who the top coaches are.

Honestly those are small numbers compared to sample size from Saban. That list is kind of silly after seeing how many he has won vs the others on the list. It's Saban for the win. Gotta give him credit.

Lol Lane Kiffin would have a similar record with Ryan Gay's schedule.

and Saban has been head coach at 4 different school, and had to rebuild each one. Day stepped into a far, far easier situation at Ohio State.

Lincoln Riley having only 26 games against ranked opponents shows you just how weak the Big 12 was for years.
