Professional Soccer Focus hilariously snubs Ryan Day in prime 20 school soccer coaches rating


I’m actually unsure what to say about this, however Ryan Day didn’t make Professional Soccer Focus’ listing of prime twenty school soccer coaches heading into 2021. In the event you learn all nuts and bolts of what coaches Seth Galena places on the listing, it seems he places extra inventory within the “alternative to win video games” versus truly being a superb coach just like the title says. Nonetheless, if you’re going to have Nick Saban of Alabama at No. 1, you’ll be able to’t go away one other shiny program, Ohio State, off the listing.

Right here’s how the rankings — considerably hilariously would possibly I add — play out.

1. Nick Saban, Alabama
2. Dabo Swinney, Clemson
3. Kirby Good, Georgia
4. Lincoln Riley, Oklahoma
5. Dan Mullen, Florida
6. Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern
7. Matt Campbell, Iowa State
8. Kyle Whittingham, Utah
9. Lance Leipold, Kansas
10. Mack Brown, North Carolina
11. Jamey Chadwell, Coastal Carolina
12. Brian Kelly, Notre Dame
13. Jimbo Fisher, Florida State
14. Mark Stoops, Kentucky
15. Luke Fickell, Cincinnati
16. Tom Allen, Indiana
17. Jeff Monken, Military
18. James Franklin, Penn State
19. Billy Napier, Louisiana
20. P.J. Fleck, Minnesota

Kirby Good is No.3, in order that blows the entire speculation of alternative to win out of the water since he’s executed much less with a few of the finest expertise than anybody we will consider.

It’s, after all, an opinion rating, and everyone seems to be entitled to that, however not rating Day among the many prime twenty is a far, far attain regardless of for those who put extra disclaimers than a bank card assertion on the entire deal.

In truth, we did the maths and Day is a mixed 9-2 towards this “finest” coaches listing. Let’s name this what it’s — a complete miss. Say what you need about Day being younger in his profession, or that Ohio State has too many benefits, and I can discover examples that pertain to a reputation on this listing to counter that.

There’s merely no approach, no how Day will not be one of many 20 finest coaches in school soccer on virtually any listing you wish to make proper now. Anyway, it seems Galena caught some slack for it too.

Welp. I don’t blame individuals for giving a brilliant wedgie to those rankings. In the event you suppose James Franklin is a greater coach than Day after two straight years of declining efficiency, for instance, you’re in an excessive minority. Like most others on this listing.
