      Sometimes championships aren't always what makes a man great.
      Bo's record was 234-65, Yost was 198-35.

      Bo's words, ability to coach, recruiting, and his leadership made him what he is in Michigan. My grandfather played for Bo, he said no man command respect like Bo.

      Time period also plays a role. More people have memories of Bo than Yost. Some might not even know Yost is.

      It's just like with the Tigers. You can walk the streets and ask who is Ty Cobbs and Al Kaline. More people will know Al.

      Yost was a great coach, he just wasn't Bo.

        I think that is a discussion of wether you think Paterno the coach is great or not versus Paterno the man.

        Paterno gained no advantage to earn those 111 wins. He did not cheat to get them with illegal recruits. They were merely taken away to punish a legacy that the NCAA felt needed to be punished. The man made a huge huge unforgiveable mistake off the field and the NCAA doesn't want him praised in any form or fashion.

        However any knowledgeable football fan knows he earned those wins within NCAA rules on the field. Meaning in my opinion he actually has 111 wins more than what the NCAA record will show. So as far as actual coaching on the field he is still up there with the best of them.


        So to answer the question I would have to put Saban ahead of him for National titles alone. However I think Paterno still belongs on the list of top all time coaches. Maybe not top 5 anymore but at least top 10.
        Now an argument could be made that he was hiding Sandusky under the rug to protect the football team. Meaning if he hadn't hid it under the rug maybe he thought he would be fired a decade ago. And would've never been on the field to earn those wins.

        But you could combat this with if he had done the right thing to begin with he wouldn't have been fired and still earned those wins.

        I'm ranting a little but point is in my opinion which is what this is, Paterno still has some 400+ wins. Though you could also argue that is because he coached for an eternity.

          I was going to chime in with Wilkinson. One of my dad's favorites.

          Nice post DB. I won't get into the fact that I thought stripping Joe Pa of his wins was a joke. With or without them I think you have to put him in the top 5, but I'm a little biased though. Penn State was almost always competitive during his tenure, which I think is most impressive because of how long it was.
