28. Mark Stoops: Kentucky
After years of building, both Stoops and the Wildcats broke through last year. Kentucky won 10 games for the first time since 1977. Duly, the team also was victorious in the Citrus Bowl (thus giving UK come momentum heading into this year). Stoops has done a great job recruiting the states of Ohio and Florida. As such, the team is as talented as it’s been in recent memory.
