ESPN's Gene Wojciechowski praises Paul Chryst's 'understated style' at Wisconsin
Wisconsin’s Paul Chryst certainly has one vote for “Most Underrated” among college football head coaches.
On Sunday, CBS Sports released an anonymous poll taken among the head coaches in college football. The poll featured the opinions of one-fifth of the 129 head coaches in FBS this season and produced some interesting results.
Penn State’s James Franklin was one of the B1G coaches mentioned and received votes as “Most Overrated.” Northwestern’s Pat Fitzgerald was on the other side of things as he was voted one of the “Most Underrated” coaches in the country.
When it comes to Wisconsin’s Paul Chryst, he was briefly mentioned as one coach who received votes for “Most Underrated.” ESPN’s Gene Wojciechowski responded to the article on Twitter and affirmed that he would definitely give Chryst his vote for “Most Underrated.” He praised Chryst’s “understated style” with “No bells and whistles, no self-promotion, no outlandish quotes.”
For Wojciechowski, he believes that Chryst understands his program and how to play up to the strengths of Wisconsin:
Chryst would get my vote as Most Underrated. No bells and whistles, no self-promotion, no outlandish quotes. But he understands what his program is, and plays to its strengths. Love his understated style. https://t.co/GvGafGupFJ

It’s hard to argue with Chryst’s results with the Badgers to this point. He has a 34-7 record in three seasons with a streak of three straight bowl victories heading into 2018.
