Nice Move

This list encompasses both NFL and NCAA football teams. Here she is:

1. Green Bay Packers
2. University of Texas
3. New England Patriots
4. Notre Dame
5. New York Giants
6. University of Alabama
7. LSU
8. Michigan/Ohio State
9. University of Florida
10. Houston Texans

Number eight is solid evidence that author Gene Wojciechowski has a sick sense of humor, locking up one of college football’s most historic and bitter rivalries like that. Their fans will have fun with that one. A surprising omission, in my opinion anyway, is USC. Figured that position to be in the top three of college football.

And finally, I was completely shocked to see Texas at the two spot in all of football. It’s pretty clear that it is the premier gig in the NCAA, but ahead of the Patriots? Maybe it’s worth a shot dropping a burnt orange blank check on Bill Belichick’s doorstep. Mack Brown is clearly underperforming according to this write-up:

2. University of Texas

When they hand you the coaching keys to the Longhorns’ football program, you get the most expensive car on the lot.

According to research done at Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus, Texas’ football program is worth $805 million — more than the Forbes-calculated value of the Jacksonville Jaguars ($770 million), St. Louis Rams ($780 million) and Oakland Raiders ($785 million). In other words, the Longhorns aren’t sweating the $5.35 million salary they pay Mack Brown. Or the $25.9 million (U.S. Department of Education figures) they spent on the program in 2011.

If you can’t win at Texas, then you ought to consider another profession. The school and Austin are drop-dead gorgeous. You usually get first pick of the state’s lonnnnnng list of quality recruits. And it doesn’t hurt to have your very own Longhorn Network. Every conceivable advantage awaits.

    ^ I’m glad we are all in agreement. I can’t say exactly where, but USC should have been somewhere between the Texans and Packers.

      The fucking Texans? How are they even on here. I would think that you would have to win a super bowl or national championship to be on this list.

      ^That’s the point. It’s a great franchise and the youngest team in the NFL run by a very rich, hands-off owner who doesn’t fire coaches on a whim.

      There’s also less of a glaring spotlight, which is odd for a team that has sold out every game in its history in a city with 50 of pro football history.

    I promise to coach us to the most important victory of all, the imminent race war. Never forget that the ever important day is upon us, gentlemen. By God, we will take this country back.

    An issue for some coaches with the Texas job is the amount of transparency the Longhorn network brings. I know a coach like Saban couldn’t stand having nearly every practice filmed. Plus Texas A&M is now in the SEC, heisman trophy winner, and a guy some considered the coach of the year. They have to get Mack Brown’s ass out of there. A coach at Texas should never win less than 9 games in a year.
