Eight weeks in the books, the "Big Ten Football Report" guys decided to address the topic of Big Ten Coach of the Year on a special web-only video Monday.'s Tom Dienhart and Brent Yarina debated the topic a couple weeks ago, as well. There are a few worthy early candidates, from Urban Meyer to Bill O'Brien. But who are Howard Griffith and Chris Martin's picks? Watch the video in this post to find out.

Both guys, it seems, favor a co-Coach of the Year this season.

Here's what Martin said:

"Well, you can make a vote for Urban Meyer with the way Ohio State is playing. But then you also can make a vote for Billy O'Brien and how he's held together Penn State, offensively, defensively and big picture, being the CEO of that program."

And Griffith's thoughts:

"How about Brady Hoke? I think this is another coach who's really stepped up and done a great job coaching.

"And understand this: Another coach that might be doing a pretty good job: Bret Bielema."
