B The Michigan Daily - michigandaily.com

Years coached: 42
Career record: 366-121-3
National Championships
won: 2 (1982, 1986)
The lowdown: The
bespectacled 80-year-
old coach holds the
most entertaining press
conferences. Paterno, who
doesn't own a cell phone,
uses phrases from before
most college students were
born, such as "gobbledygook,"
and tells anecdotes about
conversations with his grandson.,
The Penn State icon already has
a statue outside of Beaver Stadium
and fields questions each year about
how much longer he will coach. Paterno
has taken his fair share of criticism from
Nittany Lion fans, especially from 2002-
03 when his teams won a combined seven
games, but since then Penn State has
regularly contended for the Big Ten crown.
Carr on Paterno: "I've always liked
coach Paterno. I've always admired
what he stands for,'the way he runs -
his program. And as an individual, I like
him, I like him personally. I admire what
he stands for as a coach. I think he
represents our profession in a way
that makes us all proudto be coaches,
and his success speaks for itself."

Years coached: 13
Career record: 114-38
National Championships
won: 1(1997)
The lowdown: Carr has been
heavily criticized this year after
losses to Appalachian State and
Oregon, but what's new? Over
the past few years, rumors have
attacked the coach's health, his
knowledge of the game of football
and his desire to continue roaming
the sidelines. Carr has stopped
answering questions about when
he will retire. Still, he has won
one more national championship
than Michigan coaching legend
Bo Schembechler and led the
Wolverines to three Rose Bowls in
the last five years. His players love
him as much as fans hate him.
Paterno on Carr: "I was talking to'
some people when they were trying
to get on Lloyd Carr. I told a couple
of guys, I said, 'Sometimes you're
here (hand raised) and then you go
here (hand lowered), all right?' If
you don't panic, you'll get back up
there (hand raised), all right? If you
panic, start to try a lot of different
things, you listen to the media, you
try to accommodate critics, you're
going to stay here (hand lowered).
You stick with what you know."
