NCAAF Coach Match (Big Ten East): Guess Favorite Musician of Jim Harbaugh, Ryan Day & More
Matt Roembke/Action Network.
We’re now down to the Big 2. The Power 2. King Kong and Godzilla. The two behemoths: the Big Ten and the SEC. First up are the coaches from the Big Ten East.
Action Network contacted each of the 133 FBS head coaches and asked the following question: Who is your favorite musical artist or group? Each coach was able to provide only one answer.
Wednesday’s Big Ten East Hint
Today’s Big Ten East lineup: Indiana’s Tom Allen, Maryland’s Mike Locksley, Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh, Michigan State’s Mel Tucker, Ohio State’s Ryan Day, Rutgers’ Greg Schiano and Penn State’s James Franklin.
First hint: Rutgers’ Greg Schiano coaches in Jersey, so it’s only fitting he went with …? Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh’s selection, some would say, “isn’t it ironic?”
So, now that you have two gimmes, here’s one more hint: none of the coaches picked the same artist.

Coach Match Instructions
To guess, click the music artist you think matches each coach from left to right. Some coaches might have the same answer, so you can pick the same artist for multiple coaches. When you have selected an artist for each coach, hit submit. A green box means that artist is correct, a yellow box means that artist was selected by another coach and a gray box means no coach picked this artist.
After completion of Coach Match, click the "share on Twitter" button. One individual daily will be randomly selected for some free Action Network gear if (a) you tweeted your response and (b) you are following @ActionNetworkHQ and @Brett_McMurphy on Twitter.
For each day’s Coach Match, I will provide a hint to hopefully make it a little easier to solve. We will post a new Coach Match daily at 9 a.m. ET, so check back every day.
