Web Run: Checking it twice

When I first penned a list of the "10 best and five worst coaches" two summers ago, it was intended as nothing more than a casual conversation topic to break up the monotony of the offseason. What I failed to anticipate was that the "worst coaches" part would take on a life of its own.

"It's too early to say just how far Evans will take them, but for that decision alone, Chuck, you're off the list. You've been replaced by your crosstown foe John Bunting, he of the 25-40 career record." - SI.com's Stewart Mandell revising his worse coach list



Scouting Report: Wake Forest
Gary Hahn * GoPack.com
Wake Forest was sitting pretty with a 17-3 lead over No. 15 Clemson at Grove Stadium on Saturday afternoon. In fact, the Demon Deacons were looking to increase that margin with a 42-yard field goal attempt by Sam Swank. Then, the roof caved in. Holder, Jon Temple, fumbled the snap on the first play of the fourth quarter and tried to run with the ball. It was a huge mistake. Clemson's Gaines Adams knocked it from Temple's hands, picked it up and returned it 66-yards for a touchdown. That play started a Clemson 24-0 run that eventually ended with a 27-17 Tigers come-from-behind victory. Read More

What I failed to anticipate was that the "worst coaches" part would take on a life of its own. I'm not sure anyone even remembers whom I did or didn't include among the 10 best, but the names of the five worst have apparently been burned into the brains of everyone who read that column. Rarely a day goes by that someone doesn't bring it up to me -- especially now that four members of last season's edition are in the midst of an apparent uprising. Read More
