Bicknell gets no respect..I tell ya, no respect!

CoachRatings.com has a novel concept when it comes to grading college coaches - it asks players.

The Web site bills itself as a service to high school recruits who have a difficult time deciding between schools, so it contacts college players through their former high school coaches. The players receive a survey to evaluate their current college coach.

Of the 50 or so college coaches evaluated on the Web site, Louisiana Tech's Jack Bicknell has the lowest ranking among current coaches with a 5.4 ranking on a scale of 1 to 10. LSU's Les Miles has a 4.4 ranking so far, but he doesn't have the minimum amount of votes needed just yet.

The Web site says 11 players have returned surveys on Bicknell. His lowest rating was a 2.5 (on a scale of 1 to 5) on the "Coach fulfilled the promises made during recruitment," question.

Under "The best phrase describing coach is:" 27 percent said father figure and 27 percent said corrupt! 18 percent view him as a father figure.

Who's got the highest rankings? No. 1 Iowa's Kirk Ferentz. Tied for No. 2 are Texas' Mack Brown and Ohio State's Jim Tressel.
