Bruce Feldman of The Athletic put out a list of Top 25 College Football coaches, and ranked Georgia Bulldogs' Kirby Smart No. 12. It's a ranking that the Midday Show with Rick Kamla and John Michaels both couldn't agree with.

For John, he had a problem with the coaches ranked ahead of Smart on the list.

"Jim Harbaugh? Get all the way out of here. I don't even want to hear that," John said.

The Michigan head coach is ranked No. 11 on the list. Here is how the rest of Feldman's Top 10, who are all ahead of Kirby, played out:

10. Mike Leach, Washington State
9. Brian Kelly, Notre Dame
8. Gary Patterson, TCU
7. Chip Kelly, UCLA
6. James Franklin, Penn State
5. Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M
4. Lincoln Riley, Oklahoma
3. Chris Peterson, Washington
2. Dabo Swinney, Clemson
1. Nick Saban, Alabama

While Rick and John agree with Saban and Swinney belong at the top of the list, they also agree that Smart is too far down the list.

"I think they're are five better coach's than Kirby. I don't think there are seven better coaches than Kirby. Kirby would be safely in my Top 10," Rick said.

"Kirby Smart...I know I would have him in my Top 5," John agreed.
