It’d been maybe a month or two since I chuckled at the fact that Oklahoma ran Brent Venables out of town to make room for “cautious Mike” Stoops. This article was a good outlet for that energy as I ranked the top 5 DCs in college football today.
Aranda is the sole representative of the “mormon mafia” coaching tree but that’s partly because so many of those guys are already head coaches or working for head coaches within the tree. Todd Orlando could perhaps emerge down the line but he hasn’t done quite enough yet to earn that kind of distinction.
I almost left out Pete Kwiatkowski until I realized he’d been the architect of some fantastic Boise units in addition to his recent Washington squads. Bud Foster needs to keep on keeping on to maintain his place on this list but he’s still in my top group.
Who would y’all rank as the top 5 DCs in the Big 12?
