It kind of depends how many "tiers" there are I guess... and how many teams are in each tier. Just based on recent history, it looks like LSU, Georgia, and Bama are tier 1. Florida has to be the second best job in the East if we just have the right guy. The program just needs to stabilize a bit, but nobody is going to convince me that Florida's baseline isn't higher than Missouri or Tennessee. Somehow, we find a way to beat Tennessee even when we're completely dysfunctional. As far as programs in the West, Ole Miss has been good, but I think they have a really good coach in Kiffin and have hit their ceiling. Insert Kiffin in Gainesville under decent conditions and he probably does better here (but who knows what issues you'll have with Kiffin). Texas A&M has crazy potential, but they've been unlucky. And Auburn is in a fairly comparable spot to us, at least in regards to stability and results. Yeah, Florida needs administrative support to compete with the big boys... and the expectations need to be tempered if that support is lacking. But based on opportunity, if the job were on the table tomorrow, there are only 3 programs in the SEC that should be easier to run long-term: Alabama, Georgia, and LSU. Texas A&M may be in a similar spot just because they're a Texas school competing in the SEC with tons of money.
