There are a number of very worthy candidate for national coach of the year in college football. Once-embattled Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz engineered an impressive turnaround from 7-5 to 12-0, and has his Hawkeyes on the verge of a College Football Playoff berth. Bob Stoops and Mike Gundy each have their teams battling for a conference championship in Bedlam today. Who does ESPN/SEC Network analyst Paul Finebaum have as his coach of the year? Michigan's Jim Harbaugh.

Harbaugh is definitely a worthy candidate, though fans of the Hawkeyes don't seem to agree.

We expect that Harbaugh and Ferentz will each get plenty of love.
