Ohio State should be one of the frontrunners to win the national title in 2013.
With two of its best teams ineligible for a bowl game, 2012 was mostly a year to forget for the Big Ten. Despite having nothing to play for, Ohio State ran the table and finished with a perfect 12-0 record.
USC coach Lane Kiffin tops Athlon's top 20 coaches on the hot seat for spring practice.
The start of spring practice for all 125 college football teams is a chance to start fresh and forget the bad results that came along with 2012. For a handful of coaches, spring practice is also the first opportunity to turn around a program and save their job for 2014.
Ohio State ranks as the most attractive coaching job in the Big Ten.
We have ranked every college football program in the country, based on the attractiveness of the position from a coaching perspective. We considered many factors — tradition, facilities, location, money — but in the end, we simply asked ourselves the following question: Where would we want to coach? Today we focus on the Big Ten.
(Note: Current or impending NCAA sanctions were not a factor in these rankings.)
