    What are your thoughts?

    My vote goes to Akey from the University of Idaho, I might be a little biased because I'm alumni, but there has to be some consideration since he has a taken a team that was 3 and 21 the last two years and won 7 games so far and is probably going to get a bowl game.

    I know there are some other good choices out there though, just wondering what everyone else thought.

    My vote would be Kevin Sumlin at Houston. No alumni bias whatsoever

    I also do think that Lane Kiffin has done a good job at Tennessee (alumni bias) but certainly not enough to warrant coach of the year consideration.

    Still too early, especially in a year like this where at lease one top team is getting knocked off every week. Until a couple of days ago, I would have thought Iowa's Kirk Ferentz was the front runner, but no more, and Oregon's Chip Kelly is also probably out as a top contender.

    Right now, I'd have to say TCU's Gary Patterson, Cincinnati's Brian Kelly, Boise State's Chris Petersen, along with Mack Brown, Nick Saban, and of course Urban Meyer, are in a virtual tie.
