decided to take a look online recently after an idea came to mind about ranking the Top 10 active college football coaches. SI touched on this topic in August with their Top 5 coaches list Cheap Jerseys , but I am not really convinced that they got it right. As a result, I decided to consult with my DFN Sports team as well as research some stats on my own. Of course every school thinks they have the best college football coach; well every school with a winning team and tradition. Ok, so there are the few picky schools where despite a fantastic winning percentage or great program turn-around, the fans still cannot stand the coach for one reason or another. Nonetheless, College Sports Fans has provided this list of the top college football coaches who are active and coaching today.

The Top Active Coaches List from College Sports Fans weighs in with several factors including, but not limited to: career record, career winning percentage, past coaching experience prior to their current coaching position, history building a program, graduation rates, cleanliness of program Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale , players sent to the NFL, National Championships, Conference Championships, football program graduation rates, reputation of coach, reputation of program, coaching awards, player awards including Heisman Trophy winners, and much more. Voting was conducted during September 2007 as members of the DFN Sports family of sites were polled on who they felt were the top active college football coaches. Voters included CollegeSports-fans staff members, Big12-fans staff, BigTen-fans staff Cheap NFL Jerseys China , CUSA-fans staff and SECsportsfan staff. Each voter was asked to list their Top 10 active coaches and provide honorable mention coach nominees. Scoring of the votes was based on a 1st place vote worth 10 points and a 10th place vote worth 1 point.

And now, without further ado, the CollegeSports-fans Top Active College Football Coaches list:

#10 (t) - Greg Schiano - Rutgers - Since taking over at Rutgers in 2001, Schiano's career record of 33-43 is not terribly impressive. It is the progress that Rutgers has made in the past two years; turning a team that was a college football joke into one of the best programs in the nation. Schiano led Rutgers to a 11-2 record in 2006, the school's first Top 25 ranking since 1976 and their first-ever Top 10 ranking. Schiano also received several "Coach of the Year" honors in 2006 including the Walter Camp and Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Awards.

#10 (t) - Mack Brown - Texas - Mack Brown began his career at Appalachian State and then Tulane as few may remember. Brown had mild success with both schools before taking over at North Carolina in 1988 and turning the Tar Heels into a perennial bowl team and contender in the ACC. Brown left UNC after the 1997 season to take the head coaching position at Texas where he was known in his first several years as for "not being able to win the big one." Brown, along with QB Vince Young, led the Longhorns to the 2005 National Championship over USC, thus quieting many of his critics. Brown entered 2007 with a 93-22 record at Texas and 181-96-1 overall record.

#9 - Bobby Bowden - Florida State - 2006 College Football Hall of Fame inductee Bobby Bowden would likely be a bit higher on this list had it not been for a few down years for Florida State football, but you cannot argue with this man's amazing career. With 366 wins entering the 2007 season, only Joe Paterno can compare in terms of career win totals. Overall, Bowden has gone 293-81-4 at Florida State winning 2 Nationals Championships and 12 Conference titles.
