6. Ken Niumatalolo, Navy: 4-0. Last week: 9 (+3)
Throttled a pesky Air Force team 33-11 to move to 4-0. Have not yet won by less than 10 points. Who wants to dramatically change their offense?
7. Tom Herman, Houston: 4-0, 1-0 against the ACC. Last week: 10 (+3)
Houston convincingly defeated the Tulsa Golden Hurricane, which presumably brought wide-scale golden showers to the area. Also, Ohio State's offense continued to struggle in the first half. Could this man build an offensive juggernaut in the Big Ten without Urban Meyer?
8. Bill Cubit, Illinois interim: 4-1, 1-0 against the Big Ten. Last week: 12 (+4)
I'm still not sure how the Illini managed to pull that game out against Nebraska, but the fact is that they played inspired defense and got the offense going at just the right time. Sitting at 4-0 and giving Illinois a winning conference record for the first time since 2011, Cubit has a chance to rocket up this list due to having the most difficult schedule by far.
9. Willie Fritz, Georgia Southern: 4-1, 1-0 against this list. Last week: 7 (-2)
This team has an incredibly soft schedule that will not allow them any more opportunities to prove themselves. Until they play at Georgia in mid-November. Is the option an option for your team?
10. PJ Fleck, Western Michigan: 1-3, 0-1 against this list, 0-2 against the B1G. Last week: 8 (-2)
ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT GENTLY TOWARDS THE END ZONE. Broncos had a bye this week. They start conference play after getting beaten up in a tough non-con.
