Kelly's classless act is almost in a category by itself, as he tried to show up the game officials, not just the opponent. Edsall's performance, coming just a week after his melodramatic peroration after the upset of Notre Dame, is pretty lame -- apparently UConn called a time-out in that final possession rather than letting the clock run. Harbaugh was being childish (unimaginable that Bill Walsh or John Ralston would have pulled such a stunt). As for the UCLA game, I think Neuhisel had it coming -- if you call time-outs to prolong the game because you're still trying to win, don't cry when the other team continues playing hard (particularly when they had taken a knee on the preceding play, and lined up normally for the touchdown play). Carroll's (and USC's) celebration, though, were thoroughly classless (although I well remember USC scoring a similar touchdown against Cal in Berkeley in the waning seconds, so by the standards of the USC program this was pretty much normal behavior).

How is it that LeGarrette Blount isn't on this list?

Max Hall speaks the truth.

joe zack

what about Urban Meyer's press conference...and about face ...


that's number 1.

This list is way too long and somehow it leaves out even bigger "Classless Acts". Try again, this poll was DeeDeeDeeee.

Max Hall is in a class of asshole all his own. A microcosm of the culture at BYU. Easily the worst.

Kelly's would have seemed more classless if they call had been reversed, but you don't just let the other team have touchdowns, especially if you think the incorrect call was made.

Neuweasel got what he asked for.

And I don't even need to talk about the issues at michigan or lane kiffin. Those places have always been secretly classless.

The hypocrisy with Pete Carroll is what made him land at #1 for me. Carroll had been running up the score on teams for a long time and was finally seeing it happen to him. Then he cried about it because it was the second time that a Pac-10 team had made him look foolish. Then once the season was over he bailed and forced USC into hiring a douchebag.

Kelly's move seemed classless but when your team is fighting for you, you have to fight for them. Challenging the ruling on the field is not classless. There's no feeling sorry for teams in football. LeGarrette Blount's punch and meltdown should've landed on this list and would probably win (or lose, based on how you look at it).

Any of the running up of the scores (within reason) is ok in my books. I wouldn't have minded Carroll's if he hadn't whined about it happening to him in the game prior.

Rich Rod and Lane will probably be on this list each year for doing something classless...though the past year for them should be enough classless moves to last a career.

Punching another coach is classless.

Cheap shots are always bad, but I have no beef with a player hating everything about his rival, that's the way a rivalry should be.

You got #5 all wrong, it was Neuheisel that created that - Neuheisel is the classless one.

bob cuomo

A tough one to pick...all all worthy of being No. 1, but I went with Lane Kiffin because he's a bad guy...and a jerk. I almost went with Chip Kelly, though. Jeez, you're leading, 45-0, leave it alone. And I gave Randy Edsall a lot of consideration.

There is nothing as classless as physical violence in the workplace (Locksley gets my vote hands-down.)

Danny

Max Hall made Utah his b*tch. Can you blame him? I'd hate a school that assaulted my wife and kids, too.

LeGarrette Blount isn't on the list because his act was classified as a cheap shot. He is the runaway winner in our Cheap Shot of 2009 poll. View the cheap shots and poll at this link:

Neuheisel never once complained about the TD, and said that it was their right to throw if he was trying to extend the game with his TO's. It was Carroll's behavior that was classless. His hypocrisy, after whining like a baby when Stanford ran up the score on him, followed by his ridiculous "celebration" when he did the same thing, that puts him over the top.

So maybe that means that we should blame Harbaugh for #4 and 5.

And get ready for Kiffin to become an annual candidate in this poll.

Your life only lasts for a few decades, Laugh or cry as you like, and it‘s meaningless to oppress yourself. so be sure that you don't leave any regrets.
