    Where is Coach Hot Head… ahem…Mora on this list?

  • GoCoachO

    And the only one from the Pac-12…

  • Trojan Hoarse

    Hey Scottie!…..Was Kiffin ever named a semi…… never mind……

  • Helen

    Wait for it, wait for it… Coach Orgeron – Pac-12 Coach of the Year

    • Trojan Hoarse

      He is the only coach who is undefeated in the Pac-12 so far this year……

  • The Capper

    Even if he doesn’t win, what a great honor considering the other names on the list.

  • CardinalnGold

    Malzahn will probably win it but it’s still a pretty cool honor.

  • B.Miller

    I would love to see coach O win this but I also think the the HC for Duke is doing a good job too.

    • Trojan Hoarse

      The funny thing is, Duke’s Head Coach, David Cutcliffe, was the head coach at Ole Miss right before Coach O….. strange how life works out sometimes….

        It would seem they’ve both learned and have God to thank for learning from their past experiences.

  • TrojanFan

    Let’s not forget!….Bucket is a finalists for the Daily News Troll of the Year award. He looks to be a guaranteed winner. All the other finalists are misfits known to be related to him

    This is good for USC and ED – we can now see if he has (I believe he does) the awareness of how blessed his life has been since late September – there is a solid demonstration of ‘providence’ graphically being involved for him.

    This is a really great honor for Orgeron. I think Art Briles is a slam dunk (especially if he goes to a BCS game–I mean, it’s Baylor!) but Orgeron’s inclusion here is a really great recognition of the job he’s been doing.
