Series: A Quick Nine

Some of our PGA.com staff were able to check out some of college football's top coaches in the Chick-fil-A Bowl Coaches Challenge at Reynolds Plantation on Monday in Greensboro, Ga.

Nick Saban, Steve Spurrier, Urban Meyer and Frank Beamer were among those who took part, just to name a few.

That got us thinking -- college football fans might be the most rabid kind of fan you can find. With that, we wanted to know: What college football coach would you most want to play a round of golf with?

We posed that question to the nearly 180,000 strong in PGA.com Facebook Nation. Here are the top answers we received:

9. Charlie Weiss, head football coach at the University of Kansas (formerly the head coach at Notre Dame).
