It’s been three years since FSU was No. 1.
Still, why is coach Jimbo Fisher only No. 6?
Fisher was just outside of the Top Five football coaches in a recent ranking of the Power Five conference coaches.
Oh, you can probably understand Nick Saban, whose team won the national title this year, or Urban Meyer, whose team won it last year. But Fisher also ranked behind TCU’s Gary Patterson, Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops and Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio in the CBS Sports rankings.
Peterson and Dantonio have never won a national title.
Clemson’s Dabo Swinney was eighth.
Also in the rankings were Miami coach Mark Richt (18th) and Florida coach Jim McElwain (27th)
