Wisconsin HC Paul Chryst was named to the Dodd Trophy preseason watch list earlier today, joining a group that consists of four other Big Ten coaches and 17 total coaches around the country.

When you hear the list, it’s pretty hard to believe Chryst is being mentioned in the same sentence. But it makes sense, the Badger head coach is one of the winningest in the nation since taking over in 2015 and is underrated by many around the country.

But for that impressive context, the newly-released Dodd Trophy preseason watch list is…

  • Paul Chryst

  • Indiana’s Tom Allen

  • UNC’s Mack Brown

  • Iowa State’s Matt Campbell

  • Coastal Carolina’s Jamey Chadwell

  • Ohio State’s Ryan Day

  • Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz

  • Cincinnati’s Luke Fickell

  • Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher

  • Penn State’s James Franklin

  • Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly

  • Washington’s Jimmy Lake

  • Florida’s Dan Mullen

  • Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley

  • Alabama’s Nick Saban

  • Georgia’s Kirby Smart

  • Clemson’s Dabo Swinney

It’s an impressive group. Time will now tell who takes the award from 2020 winner Pat Fitzgerald.
