Joker has the 10th best job in the SEC

joker-rise

In case you were interested in applying to be a head football coach, Athlon Sports ranked the head coaching jobs in the SEC. By the looks of the list, your best bet would be to submit applications to Florida, Alabama, and then Georgia if you want to land one of the top three gigs. Or, you could pursue a job at Kentucky, which is slightly better than coaching at Mississippi State or Vanderbilt.

Athlon ranked Kentucky at #10 of 12 and didn’t really have much to say about the job. The top 9 schools got fancy write-ups with pros and cons – UK got one sentence with a basketball mention:

10. Kentucky

The Cats have outstanding facilities and a solid fanbase, but basketball is king.

Our new motto… “Kentucky Football: Our Daktronics HD-X displays are better than yours.”

    “The Cats have outstanding facilities and a solid fanbase, but basketball is king.”

    Using that kind of keen logic, every other SEC school should just drop basketball.

    3 – Why do you even post about football on here? If you don’t like just don’t comment. No one wants to see your half-ass attempt at humor while bashing a school that some of us graduated from and have great pride in. Why would a “fan” of UK bash any UK sport? Just doesn’t make sense to me.

    “Tennessee is a great place to coach, but the Vols have slipped down the SEC food chain over the past decade. Florida, Georgia, LSU, Auburn and Alabama are clearly better jobs right now.”

    So if Auburn is clearly a better job than Tennessee, then why does this guy have Tennessee #5 and Auburn #6?

    Auburn’s cleary a better job than Tennssee, but I’ll rank Tennessee #5 and Auburn #6. That makes sense.

    Mississippi State has passed us up. They have better fans and a much better in state pool to get recruits. Thank God for Vandy.

    11 – Look where Vandy’s next recruiting class is currently ranked nationally – #22 I believe. They just received a commitment from the best player in Tennessee.
