We are back for a FIFTH STRAIGHT YEAR EVERYONE!!!! Yes, it’s time once again to power rank every single coach in college football by conference. Everyone knows that in the game of football, the head coach position is arguably the most important position on the team.

If the guy who is calling the shots doesn’t have a good football brain on his shoulders, there’s a good chance your favorite team is dragging ass on the college football field. Head coaching is extremely important in the game of football, especially in the college world where the guy is not only expected to produce on the field, but also win over high-profile recruits and convince them to join their squad.

Being a head coach of a college football team is pretty much a 24/7 job. You’re always having to recruit and if you aren’t recruiting, you’re practicing with your team or watching game film. There are a limited number of people who become successful head coaches in college football for a reason, it’s a difficult job. With all that said, these are the guys who are the best at their jobs ranked via conference for the fifth year in a row on my lovely blog! There’s a great chance that whoever is ranked #1 on these lists will finish high when the season is all said and done. Those are the horses you are going to want to back. Don’t believe me? Just go look at last years lists.

SO HERE WE ARE EVERYONE!

THE FIFTH ANNUAL USB COLLEGE FOOTBALL HEAD COACH POWER RANKINGS!!!!!!!

Up first….the Sun Belt conference. You may not think this is a big deal, but last year when I ranked this conference I had Scott Satterfield and Neal Brown as the top dogs in the conference. They are now head coaches at Louisville and West Virginia so yeah, there is some talent in the Sun Belt.
