familiar coaches appear io the upper echelons of the national
ratings. Rarely can a team which has been consistently poor in
the past recruit in the all-encompassing manner of a Texas, Ala-
bama or Oklahoma and break the monopoly.
For today's Daily sports quiz rank the top ten college football
coaches in order of lifetime winning percentage:
A. Hayes, Ohio State; B. McClendon, LSU; C. Royal,
Texas; D. Bryant, Alabama; E. Schembechler, Michigan;
F. Jordan, Auburn; G. Broyles, Arkansas; H. Kush, Arizona
State; I. Parsegian, Notre Dame; and J. McKay, Southern
Cal. (See column S for correct order),
