Footbrawl: Pac-10 v. SEC coach fights

Don't ask.  Or just see Stephen's post in the SEC v. Pac-10 forum.

So who would win in some kind of bare knuckles brawl between Pac-10 and SEC coaches?

I'm not a huge student/fan of pugilism, so my opinion isn't all that valid, but here's how I'd seed everyone.  Feel free to respond below with comments and your opinion on the final outcome.

Pac-10 Coaches

  1. Mike Stoops, Arizona-Sturdy, a little crazy.  Survived his older brothers growing up.
  2. Pete Carroll, USC-Have you seen this guy up close?  Mangled hands, nose broken in about ten places.  Former college safety.  Big chin, and has a bit of a chip on his shoulder.
  3. Mike Riley, Oregon State-Kind of a subdued guy, but he has that look of where you really don't want to mess with him if you know what's good for you.
  4. Jeff Tedford, California-Tough guy.  Had a pretty rough life at times.  Big hitter.
  5. Dirk Koetter, Arizona State-Kind of ornery.
  6. Tyrone Willingham, Washington-Former player.  Doesn't appear to have a fighter's temperament, but has some toughness.
  7. Mike Bellotti, Oregon-Had that whole "I break things" incident earlier this year.  Former owner of a killer 'stache.  Success may have killed some of his old bloodlust, but was a warrior back in the day.
  8. Walt Harris, Stanford-Meek.  But is a Carroll ally and coached at Pitt, so has some toughness.
  9. Karl Dorrell, UCLA-Doesn't look like a guy who wants to be anywhere near a fight.  Former player, but has never really stood up to challengers (such as the L.A. press and boosters).
  10. Bill Doba, Washington State-Genial, and could scrap, but just too nice of a guy and a bit old compared to his peers.

SEC Coaches

  1. Ed Orgeron, Mississippi-The guy's crazy!
  2. Les Miles, LSU-Definitely a crazy streak to him.  Looks like someone who likes to mix it up.
  3. Urban Meyer, Florida-Tough guy when he's not crying.  Someone who has a chip on his shoulder after having to pay his dues.
  4. Sylvester Croom, Mississippi State-Former player.  Tough.
  5. Bobby Johnson, Vanderbilt-Good frame.  Willing to fight.
  6. Houston Nutt, Arkansas-See above.
  7. Steve Spurrier, South Carolina-A little crazy, and definitely someone who wants to fight.  Former player, probably not the toughest guy around, but gutsy.
  8. Mike Shula, Alabama-Seems friendly, but also looks a bit ornery.  Another former quarterback.
  9. Rich Brooks, Kentucky-A mad dude because he's going to be fired soon.  Age hurts him.
  10. Phil Fulmer, Tennessee-Big guy and former lineman, but weak chin and poor athlete.
  11. Mark Richt, Georgia-Tough SOB, but is a nice guy and not the best temperament for the ring.
  12. Tommy Tuberville, Auburn-No chance.

Again, I know next to nothing about boxing or anything similar to it.  It looks like we have a good group of athletic, similarly framed guys here, many who are former college level and NFL level players.

So, who would win?

Forget boxing... Coach O would be the winner in anything close to no holds barred. As for the rest, Carroll does have that former safety look to him - that is to say, hit alot of people and liked it. Les Miles is just plain tough, as well. I think that Richt would place much higher, though.

Truth to tell, I'd really like to see Carroll and Chuck Amato go at it - who would win, the Man With The Fugly Glasses, or Pom Pom Pete? :P
