The List: 125 college football coaches ranked by rap name power

Jared Wickerham

There are 125 FBS head coaches. Not all of them have names that would also make for great rap careers. But they're all being ranked accordingly anyway.

The American economy has not collapsed completely yet. But if it does, we may have to all make our living rapping.

Some of us will be more prepared for this from birth by having a given name that already doubles as an MC handle. Some of those people will be football coaches, and some of them are already set for a stage name and ready to battle rap.

(Finally, one list where Texas football is still number one.)
