CBS Sports ranked all Power 5 football coaches and it is laugh out loud funny because Will Muschamp is ahead of Mark Stoops

The college football crew over at ranked all 65 head coaches in the Power 5 conferences and released the first batch of the rankings on Tuesday. Coaches 1-25 will be released another time, but it doesn’t really matter to us because we already know Mark Stoops’ spot as it is outside the top 25.

Stoops came in at lucky No. 39 in this year’s rankings, up seven spots from his No. 46 ranking prior to last season. Apparently 10 wins, a Citrus Bowl trophy and a record number of draft picks weren’t enough to earn Stoops more than a seven-spot bump. Hell, the historic 2018 season didn’t even move Stoops ahead of Scott Satterfield at Louisville (37) or Will Muschamp at South Carolina (35) in the rankings, and Stoops has beaten Muschamp three straight years plus a close-call at Florida when Muschamp needed the play-clock operator to cheat for the Gators to escape an upset 27 years in the making. Buncha bullcrap if you ask me.’s Tom Fornelli admitted he had Stoops higher on his list in the site’s explanation of the ranking:


Mark Stoops: I was fully expecting Stoops to take a significant step forward in these rankings after winning 10 games at Kentucky last season. It was the first time the Wildcats won at least 10 games in a single season since 1977. I had him at No. 34 on my ballot, but I guess my fellow voters weren’t as impressed as I. Still, climbing seven spots isn’t insignificant. 2018 rank: 46 (+7)

Muschamp over Stoops is a fireable offense. Stoops has won three of five (four of five in my eyes) against Muschamp and all three of the last three since Muschamp left Florida.

    Dino Babers jumped 21 spots because Syracuse won 10 games for the first time since 2001. Apparently finishing with a higher ranking and achieving the 10 win feat in the toughest conference in America for the first time since 1977 isn’t as impressive. Complete BS. Also Neal Brown a former assistant being ranked higher for winning at Troy. Love Neal and hope he does well but shouldn’t we wait to see how he does in Power 5 before ranking him higher. Don’t get me started on Satterfield! Or the coaches at Wake or UVA. Really what have they done that trumps winning 10 games and finish 2nd in the SEC East at UK. If anything success at UK is more impressive than any P5 school except Kansas or IU.

      Well said. Chumps just hate it worse when they all predict “UK will be lucky to make a bowl game in 2018.” Just like the prick that said it was just he DC and nothing to do with the HC that UK won 10 games last year.

      The dmn osers dont know sht!

      Jeff Brohm – smh. Based on???? Will f’ng Muschump who couldn’t win in the Swamp?! There’s some good coaches here in the 24-40 range but Stoops got undersold. If this were a market, I’d buy Stoops stock at this price!

      Brohm got a crash course in SEC football when Purdue played Auburn in the Music City Bowl.

    Worry not. This is a good announcement. Which means a couple of things: !. Bulletin Board Material. 2. Mark the Saint is not leaving soon. GO CATS!

    So apparently 38 other coaches could easily take us to a 10 win season or better. Not sure if they think that highly of UK’s program or are just eating glue when making this list.

      Eating glue is my call. What a load of BS. Stoops has built a program. Muschump destroyed UF. Gator fans – I’m married to one – hate him. (Btw she’s a UK fan in basketball so we hv an “understanding”) but seriously this guy inherited NOTHING, he built this like an Amish barn raising in 5 years. Is he Nick Saban? No. But he’s damn good and this is an insult. I hope they use it to motivate again this year. Keep hatin’ on us. Buckle ur damn chin strap bc Stoops’ teams – even when not as talented – hit. And now we hv some horses and we hit hard.

    Motivation… dont these fkers learn?! Keep shoveling it shtholes! We’ll dish it up for you at the end of the season, put some ketchup on it for you, let us know how it tastes

    The national sports media hates UK. Their hatred is so intense, it blinds them when they do / say something intensely stupid. You don’t own anything the way Stoops owns Muschamp. The booger-eating morons at CBS Sports can’t get past their hatred and put out an honest poll. Which is why I don’t pay any attention to anything the national sports media has to say. No point in getting upset over the rantings of really stupid people. No offense. Jusy saying.

    I don’t disagree w/anything people have posted but I guess we’ll know we’ve finally arrived when our fans don’t get hyper-butthurt over not getting our perceived props in an article in May.
    Writers across the country can keep sleeping on Stoops and our program. I hope they do. I like how our team responds to stuff like that.

    Did Booger McFarland do these rankings?

    I don’t know what Tom Fornelli makes being a spirts reporter – before this article I didn’t know he WAS a sports reporter. But the average sports reporter makes about $40,000/ year – lets assume his Network really likes him and pays him 2.5x that. That means he (and his pals) make $100k/year to write and pontificate about what kind of job coaches do… meanwhile coaches like Stoops make that in a week actually doing the job. So if some guy who made in a week what u do in a year told u he thought u weren’t as good as some other guys would u even care? I wouldn’t. I’d be like “dude, if ur so smart get urself a job doing it instead of yapping about it.”

    Muschamp probably a better recruiter as his classes are always above Stoops but when you beat him every year with supposedly less talent then Stoops is by far the better Coach.

      Very true, doing more w less would make u better in any normal calculation. But I’m not even sure he’s a better recruiter – at Florida u can’t help but sign talent, it’s the most target rich recruiting environment in the country, then he went to ‘Bama where no one went to play for Will Muschamp, they went to ‘Bama. I guess his SC classes hv been ranked a little better but we seem to get the guys we want when we go head to head. I may be wrong but I know we hv beat them out of some guys.
