Pros: There are eight FBS schools in Ohio, but there is only one school named The Ohio State University. Final Verdict: Coaching Penn State is a tremendous opportunity for any coach, but don’t dismiss the Paterno factor. Final Verdict: Michigan is no doubt an elite job, but as we have seen in the past few seasons — Rodriguez won a total of 15 games in three years — you have to be the right fit to win big in Ann Arbor.
Cons: The Huskers won three national titles in the 1990s, but the program slipped a bit over the past decade. Final Verdict: Barry Alvarez turned Wisconsin from a Big Ten afterthought to a significant player in college football.
Pros: Three key elements make Iowa an attractive job — it’s the top school in the state (sorry, Iowa State), it has a strong tradition of excellence (five Big Ten titles since 1981, two BCS bowls since ‘03) and it has great fan support (70,585 per game in ’10).
Final Verdict: It’s difficult for a school that doesn’t have a strong local recruiting base to compete for national title.
New stadium makes this job more attractive, but the Gophers will always struggle against Big Ten’s elite.
We considered many factors — tradition, facilities, location, money  — but in the end, we simply asked ourselves the following question: Where would we want to coach?
The Buckeyes have been a consistent force on the field and in recruiting since Woody Hayes took over in the early 1950s.

Consider the case of John Cooper: In 13 seasons, Cooper went 111–43–4, winning 10 games or more five times. The facilities are top-notch, the fans are passionate, and the recruiting base is outstanding. The Nittany Lions play in the second-largest facility in the country (Beaver Stadium, capacity 107,282), and they have won two national championships in the past 30 years. The Wolverines have been a national power since the 1890s and they play in one of the largest venues in the country, 109,901-seat, newly renovated Michigan Stadium. A coach who comes in with a new philosophy — for example, Rich Rodriguez — will have a tough time being accepted. The state of Nebraska does not produce many high-end BCS conference players each year, and the program no longer has the sex-appeal to steal elite players from the East Coast like it did in the 1970s and 80s. Badger faithful pack 80,321-seat Camp Randall Stadium each week and create one the best environments in the nation. Also, there’s the Michigan thing: No matter how much success the Spartans enjoy, they will always be the second school in the state behind Michigan. To remain competitive, the Hawkeyes’ staff will always have to go into other teams’ home states to recruit.
Football, for whatever reason, has never been much of a threat to break into the upper echelon of the league.

The program’s success and the school’s academic reputation have allowed Michigan to be a major player in recruiting both in the Midwest and nationally. Wisconsin, more than most of the other schools ranked in the top 25 on this list, needs the right coach in place to remain successful. The facilities (weight room, practice facility, locker rooms, etc.) are strong, and the stadium recently received a $200 million upgrade. There is a lot to like about the job, but there are also reasons why the school has only won three Big Ten titles (two outright) since the early 1960s. If you can change the culture in East Lansing — which every coach believes he can do — there is no reason Michigan State can’t contend for Big Ten titles on a semi-regular basis. Ironically, this came after Title IX, the law aimed at eradicating gender discrimination in education. The Big Ten Legends Division has some good programs — Michigan, Iowa and Michigan State — but Nebraska should be in position to compete for a division title on an annual basis. Title IX created a lot of new coaching jobs, but it only protected female student athletes.
