Defensive Coordinator Power Rankings

As mentioned yesterday, Michigan, after inexplicably waiting longer than eight minutes after the end of the Gator Bowl, took the Rich Rodriguez era behind the giant pile of wood that helps keep them alive in the winter and terminated the relationship.  One would assume the putting down also signaled the end of Greg Robinson-led defenses in Ann Arbor, unless the Wolverines have a fondness for watching their defenders chase opposing players into the end zone.  A hunch tells me they don't, which means there's been a shake-up on the back end of the Defensive Coordinator Power Rankings.  While little has changed in the front, or those who know what the hell they're doing, several of Robinson's caliber have inched closer to the king of the land of points and yards allowed, Ruffin McNeill*.

*Technically, he does not have the title of defensive coordinator, but for our purposes, he's the defensive coordinator.

  1. Jordan Jefferson had his best game against the #1 ranked Saban/Smart brigade. That alone should shake things up a good bit.
