Ok, Lets name all the great Tier 1 Football Jobs,
Notre Dame. Say what you want, but its here.
USC, FSU ??? can be considered T1 jobs, just for the locations.
Ohio State, Michigan, Texas, Can all be here as well, just because of the base, the MONEY and the fact that for most of the year, you are king of all you survey. I???m not going to count Oklahoma here, but a case can be made they are a SOLID 1A, but there is A and then there is 1A.
That???s it. Those are all the T1 jobs.Texas Alabama
I know Bama fans, get mad at me if you want. and LSU fans, I feel you, my wife is a HUGE LSU Fan.
But T1?
I got I got 4 words for you.
Mike Shula.
Gerry DiNardo.
If you hire, or have hired, those two men, and it wasn???t on a dare. Then you are not a T1 Job.
Sorry.
T1 Jobs are not jobs that you take a second choice on. T1 Jobs are FIRST CHOICE Plum Job.,s
Let me give you an example.
If you are the number 1 recruiter
If you are the top DB in the country, and Kiper has already called you twice before your signing day, and you sit down at a table LIVE ON ESPN.
The hats in front of you are Alabama
Vanderbilt and Iowa. All fine schools, all schools you could play and start Day 1.
But where is the T1 School?
Alabama.
Saban has done that. Saban did that at LSU.
Let me tell you something Bama fans, if Saban leaves, and you don???t hire a good coach, you hire Rich Rodriguez or Ron Zook, you will no longer be a T1 job anymore. Same for you LSU fans. You go right ahead and run Les Miles off, and hire Jim Haslett then Gary Crowden, and see how long it is before you are missing those days of the Peach Bowl.
Ask Tennessee if they wouldn???t take Phil Fulmer v2.0 back right now.

Reminds me of BCS. That is, it's all about OPINION!

There are some programs that are just 1st rate, tier 1, top of the heap no matter what. Ohio State. Alabama. USC. ND. You can call OU 1A all day long, but it doesn't change anything. Same with Michigan, Nebraska.

Some are programs that have been down awhile, but it doesn't matter. Been a CFB fan since the early 60's and these were power programs then, and they will be in another 50 years too. FSU, Miami? new to the scene,we'll see what happens...

But the top? These are programs with heismans, NC's, record win streaks, etc. They may be down for a decade or so, but will not stay down. Just the way it is.

UCLA comes, and then they go. Same with LSU. those are "1a" if you must give a label. But USC? Bama? Always another Bear or John out there waiting for discovery, and that's where they end up

Since it's all opinion, allow me to add Penn State to the tier 1 list. Because UITF is right, and the history matters.

Once you understand of what you are talking...come back

THought about Penn State, my issue is- is it PENN STATE or is it Paterno?

Every School on my list, save FSU has won titles under multiple coaches, but will PSU come back or will they be like Nebraska, still trying to find Osborne?

I think you have to include OU in the list. The school has won NCAA titles since the Bud Wilkerson era and hasn't let up under Big Game Bob.

And I agree that FSU and THE U. of Florida don't belong on the list at this point. However, from a long-term historical perspective, African-Americans have figured prominently in college football only since the 1970-1980s. And now that African-Americans dominate the game, the Flarida schools will be big in the future, IMHO, given the large AA population here in-state.

I wasn't going to say anything since you don't consider Texas and OU T1 jobs...which shows either you are very biased or don't know what you are talking about...but let's take these two statements shall we? T1 jobs are not jobs that you take a second choice (I'm assuming coach here)....so Charlie Weiss is a first choice? Lane Kiffin? Hell, even Brian Kelly hasn't really proven anything.

So, again, until you indicate that you understand what you are talking about....
