Sports Illustrated: Big XII South has superior coaches

The Koolaid drinkers won't like what SI's Stewart Mandel has to say in this week's mailbag:

"While I certainly expect the gap to start lessening as soon as this season, it's hard to imagine that the balance of power will shift back to the North again anytime soon, as long as you have four coaches in the South (Bob Stoops, Mack Brown, Dennis Franchione and Mike Leach) whom you'd take in a heartbeat over anyone in the North save Bill Snyder. Until Nebraska proves it can compete at an elite level again, the North simply isn't going to have the same type of clout at the top as the South does, even if a Missouri, Iowa State or Kansas has a good season."
