Each week, ESPN college football reporter Brett McMurphy releases a different kind of coaches poll - and it never has to do with ranking teams based on their play on the field. Last week, McMurphy's poll dealt with the "most knowledgeable"fan bases in the country. This week? He asked college football coaches who the "most prepared" opposing coach is in the country. Alabama's Nick Saban won.

Urban Meyer, Bill Snyder, Ken Niumatalolo and Frank Beamer rounded out the top five.

It isn't that surprising to see Saban and Meyer at the top of the list - most fans believe that they're the two best coaches in the game, too. Still, it's cool to see that the other coaches in the game recognize it.
