Scout Ranks JoePa Worst Coach in Big Ten

This past weekend, CollegeFootballNews.com (a part of Scout) ranked the Big Ten’s coaches you would want to build a program for the next several years.

At the top of the list was Coach Jim Tressel of Ohio State, which makes perfect sense, because who wouldn’t want a coach that keeps phone calls and documents that would be detrimental to a program’s future hidden away so that years of probation can follow afterwards?

At the bottom of the list is someone not many college football fans would expect (or maybe they would). That name is Joe Paterno, merely the guy who has won more Division I-A games than anyone else in the history of the sport. While I personally have called for Joe to realize it’s his time to go, I would still not rank him below Ron Zook (#11), Brady Hoke (#4!!) or any schmuck that Indiana could hire (#10) as these discriminators of age have done.

If that wasn’t enough, the man who many people think could be the next Joe Paterno, Northwestern’s Pat Fitzgerald, was ranked ninth in the 12-coach poll.

What do you think? Would you still take 85-year old Joe Paterno before some of the Big Ten’s coaches?
