3rd Annual USB College Football Head Coach Power Rankings (INDEPENDENTS)

The third annual USB College Football Head Coach Power Rankings rolls along with a look at the coaches who are without a conference. Yes, these four guys don’t get the thrill of fighting for a conference title every year and also face an uphill climb when trying to get those precious post-season bowl bids every season.

Which coach do I consider to be the “King of the Mountain” in the FBS Independents heading into the 2017-18 season?

For the last two years, Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly has ran away with the #1 spot. After a disappointing 4-8 season, can any one take his top spot?

LET’S FIND OUT!
