Chris Low: Bobby Petrino is the No. 2 Coach in the SEC

Aw, summer: a time for long road trips, lazy afternoons at the neighborhood pool ... and ranking college football coaches.

Chris Low, ESPN.com's SEC blogger, recently unveiled his list of the top coaches in the SEC. Coming in at number two, right behind Nick Saban, is none other than Bobby Petrino. Here's how Low explained his rankings:

The way I tried to look at it was who would be on my list if I were an athletic director currently looking for a head coach and how healthy that coach's program was right now. In other words, was his program headed in the right direction. Experience was a factor, but so was age. I also considered what that coach had done over the course of his career with a premium placed on how well he'd recruited and developed players and any obstacles he might have overcome.

Below is some footage of Atlanta sports-talk-radio hosts reacting to Low's list:
