What I was thinking about the most prestigous coaching jobs in the conference, based on winning, financial support, tradition, facilities and national perception.
1) Alabama- thanks to coach saban for restoring this program to elite status. Prior to him arriving would be down on the list.
2) LSU tough call vs uf and uga but national perception and winning recently, great recruiting opportunity
3) Florida has won 2 national championship in last 8 years, great facilities and florida recruiting base
4) Georgia with the right might be a team that could win more of the big games. Talent is pretty consistent but doesn't live up to potential
5) Texas AM another tough call, recent spending on stadium, only SEC team in Texas, good start in first year, 10 wins
6) South Carolina- back to back 10 win seasons, developing more winning tradition, building facilities ( still more to do to keep up). Recruiting will be difficult due to the lack of consistent top level in state talent. An SEC title/ BCS trip would elevate national perception
7) Arkansas- losing chunk of team due to graduation, petrino mess, john l disaster. Program has money, facilities, pretty consistent winning program over last 10 years. Depending on success of new staff will change ranking.
8/9) miss st and ole miss programs with mixed results and seemingly starting to go in the right direction
10) Vandy-no real winning tradition, facilities or recruiting; but Franklin has started to change mind set to compete. If vandy loses Franklin and dont commit to a quality coach they could fall
11) Tennessee- 4 coaches in 6 years. Practically had to beg butch jones to come. Fan support at all time low, but, building a new football complex and 100k stadium. Problems with players leaving, coaching changes have hurt depth and will take years to build back
12) Auburn- firing your head coach after 2 years of winning mnc is never good. Potential ncaa violations. Great recruiting classes, but will be a while until they are competitive especially if put on probation.
13)Missouri- needs years of recruiting to play with the big boys

By your criteria you would have to move TENN and AU up by default because of NC and prestige.
2. LSU ( no one to recruit against in Louisana)
9. Miss st
11. Ole Miss
I wouldn't have thought this 10 years ago but atleast 6 coaches turned down job last 5 years....I would drop them to behind Arky

If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
