Pls explain Manny Diaz, who helmed the 7th ranked Big Ten D at Penn State last year, and has never statistically outperformed the Gopher D of the past couple seasons, even while showered in talent at Miami. The same is also true of Jim Knowles (Ohio State)

Jesse Minter (Michigan) has never been a FBS DC prior to last season. He got a near identical result in 2022 as Joe Rossi, with far more talent. He's a WR as a player but doing pretty well. #2 in America seems a stretch.

Also, are we sure that the best DCs also work at a short list of "blue blood" schools? Give me Parker, Rossi, and the other dudes making this list from medium-resource programs.

Here are the total defense rankings from last year (yards allowed per game). The Ohio State coach must be doing less with more talent; four teams from the B1G West have better defensive rankings that Ohio State.

And by the way, if we are scratching our heads over why it is so hard for the Gophers to actually win the "pathetic" B1G West, this might give us a clue.

Who hates Iowa?

Seriously hoping the guy retires soon but guessing he’s going to be like one of those Iowa farmers that is riding the tractor when he’s 90.

Well, what the hell else is there to do in Iowa? Trundling around in the tractor is the highlight of the day for these guys.

It appeared like everyone was cheering on Iowa ladies basketball. Sadly, they got smoked.
