Ranking Big 12 Coaches

A few weeks out from a real kickoff, you get the impression that many of the college football talking heads are killing time before they have something real to discuss. So we end up with lots of lists, and lots of fictional rankings, and I was listening to the radio in Austin when a couple of the local pundits decided that they'd rank Big 12 coaches before the season.

Among the products of that conversation that I didn't find surprising: they ranked Kliff 9th out of 10 coaches. Ahead of Charlie Weiss, but behind all others, and though I thought their logic was somewhat flawed (obviously he doesn't have a HC track record just yet, but they seemed to ding him a great degree over the assistant coaches and Tech grads peppering the coaching ranks). I did find it reasonably surprising that that each of these guys pegged Mack Brown 6th out of 10: totally agree that he's overrated, but I couldn't have seen candor coming from a group that tends to contort in order to high five UT most days.

That was interesting.

Nevertheless, it got me to thinking about how we perceive coaches in the league that we know well. I'll assume that we'd each rank KK higher than their 9th position, so I'll leave him out of the discussion. But I'm curious about the other programs. Who do you think tops the Big 12 coaching list? Who's overrated? Who's underrated?
