12. Brett Bielema, Arkansas

In this conference, a team cannot be one dimensional, and this is what Bielema takes pride in at Arkansas. Bielmma's Wisconsin run was stellar, making Rose Bowl after Rose Bowl, but Bielema did inherit a stable football program from his Badgers' predecessor, Barry Alvarez. The same can't be said in inheriting an Arkansas program that Bobby Petrino left a mess.

Bielema will have to learn how to preach throwing the ball to have any chance of improving on a 3-9 2013, where Arkansas was winless in the SEC. If it continues, impatient fans maybe louder than the calling of the Hogs.

11. Will Muschamp, Florida

Schools have identities and schools win by their identities. Florida, as a program, is known for offense. Whether it was Steve Spurrier or Urban Meyer running the show inside The Swamp, fans were accustomed to watching UF always field an offensive powerhouse.   

Muschamp may be a winning head coach at another stop down the line in his career, but much like Ron Zook, the two do not fit what the Florida faithful want to see. If eight-win seasons were not good enough for Zook to keep his job, the same should be in place for the former Texas head coach-in-waiting.
