Tuesday, as you may have heard, is election day in the United States.
And as millions of Americans head to the polls, we have a question that won’t show up in your voting booth: Which Big Ten coach would make the best President?
Coaches are like politicians in a lot of ways. They’re public figures selling their message of a bright future while trying to win over large crowds of people. So which Big Ten coach would do the best in the Oval Office?
Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh has been to Washington D.C. to see a State of the Union Address and watched President Barack Obama speak Monday. Ohio State’s Urban Meyer is the only coach in the Big Ten who can boast about a national championship.
Penn State’s James Franklin and Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio each have their own turnaround stories to sell (though Dantonio may not want to mention 2016). Wisconsin’s Paul Chryst and Nebraska’s Mike Riley both have experience in multiple parts of the country. If you’re looking for a steady hand at the wheel, who’s a better example than Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz?
So who would get your vote? Cast it below in our poll (we apologize for the lack of stickers):
