The Buzz: Meyer may inspire a lot of vitriol, but he also happens to be a winner. He owns a 118-23 record, turning around Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and Ohio State programs that faced various problems before he was named head coach of the programs. He won a pair of national titles with the Gators and mentored Tim Tebow, who won a Heisman Trophy. Meyer went 12-0 his first season at Ohio State. He faces questions about whether he looked the other way while players had trouble with the law, but so do many other coaches on this list.
