All that time (and money) spent earning your college degree... wouldn't it have been great if even some of those classes were useful for handling everyday life stuff? This is a list of the things you wish you could've learned in a college class but couldn't since the course never existed. You had to eventually figure out on your own how to do these real-life, everyday things you wish someone had taught you about.

In fact, it's possible you still don't know how to do many of these things - and while you spent lots of money learning about English literature in the 1600s, probably know Socrates' birthday by heart, and can likely recall some data from the periodic table you had to memorize for a chemistry class at some point, you still don't know how to change a tire, manage your bank account, or file your taxes. Despite earning that degree, after graduation, many students are left clueless as to how they can handle some of the basic fundamentals in everyday life.

Sure, some of these college classes we wish existed were offered in some iteration if you majored in a related field - 'How to Invest' or 'How to Save Money' were likely covered in a Business degree. The classes on this list are what you wish had been part of your general education requirements but weren't since most colleges don't offer a course in how to avoid identity theft, how to apply for a loan, how to take care of a pet or how to get a boyfriend or girlfriend. Even though you spent a lot of money on a fancy college degree, there are still plenty of real-life things you don't know how to do that you wish you could've learned about in college.

This is a list of the classes that colleges should offer but don't... the stuff we really need to know how to do in everyday life. Vote up the classes that don't exist that you wish you could've enrolled in during college.

A list of the best college football coaches of all time. Ever wondered who was is the greatest college football coach of all time? Now is your opportunity to have a say in the matter. Granted, picking who this should won't be easy, as you have to consider different eras of NCAA football along with a number of other factors, like bowl wins, national titles, who was on their team and who got the most bang for their buck out of the players. But it's on you to pick whatever criteria you want in determining who is the best college football coach ever. There are some pretty big names on this list, titans of the coaching world. If you're an Alabama fan, you'll have a tough time picking between Bear Bryant and Nick Saban. The same goes for any Notre Dame fan and for USC supporters, who do you think is a better coach: John McKay or Pete Carroll?

It shouldn't be easy for you to decide who is the greatest coach of all time. Just remember though, where would each coaches team be without them steering the ship and keeping the players in line? Not an easy question to answer.

So who is the best college football coach of all time? It's up to you to decide. If you notice someone isn't on this list and should be, feel free to add him. This is the crowdranked list of what coach deserves to called the greatest ever, so choose wisely!

Amos Alonzo Stagg

<![CDATA[What School Will Win the 2014 NCAA Tournament?]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/what-school-will-win-the-2014-ncaa-tournament-/ranker-sports
Who do you think is going to win the 2014 NCAA tournament? The field is wide-open and the competition is as fierce as ever. March Madness will prove to be as unpredictable as usual. The usual stalwarts, like Kansas, Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina are in the field, as are Cinderella stories like Wichita State, a team that went through the regular season undefeated. Can Wichita State win the tournament and become national champions? Or will it be the overall #1 seeded Florida Gators? There are many questions surrounding this year's men's college basketball championship. College basketball's best players will be in this year's tournament, and with so many expected to declare themselves eligible for the NBA Draft come June, this could be the last time many college basketball fans get to see the likes of Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker before they hit the pros. 

In one of the toughest years to prognosticate, what school will win the NCAA tournament? For the sake of this list, we've included teams from the First Four, because, hey, sometimes you never know, just ask VCU how well that turned out a few years ago. As a no. 5 seed, VCU is one of the sneaky dangerous teams in this year's bracket. What school will be this year's bracket buster? There are plenty of small schools looking to replicate some of the biggest upsets in NCAA history, and the tournament is ripe with these Davids looking to knock off these Goliaths. You know there's always one or two games that don't go according to plan, so it's a matter of if, not when.

This is a list of the schools in the 2014 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. What school with cut down the nets at this year's Final Four? This is your chance to vote and March Madness will reign supreme once again.

<![CDATA[9 NBA Players Who Went to Ivy League Schools]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/nba-players-who-went-to-ivy-league-schools/ranker-nba
This slideshow brings together NBA players who went to Ivy League schools. This list recalls such players as Jerome Allen, who went on to teach at his alum school, Pennsylvania, Matt Maloney, James Blackwell, and Ira Bowman. These players are few and far between. Most Ivy League schools focus much more of their attention towards classroom studies as opposed to sports, but that doesn't stop some special few from hitting the court. 

How many NBA players went to an Ivy League school? How many currently active players attended an Ivy League school? Jeremy Lin is the answer to that question, having come up from Harvard University. He played for Harvard's team from 2006 to 2010. He was drafted shortly afterwards, after a stint playing in the summer league for the Mavericks. Lin currently plays for the New York Knicks where he averages 25 points per game.

 A different question is raised when one views the infrequency of basketball players drafted from Ivy League schools--how funded are Ivy league sports programs? Do Ivy League colleges give athletic scholarships? Does the lack of attention paid to sports in these school lead to a "quality not quantity" outcome and ideal? Don't hesitate to chare your thoughts in the comments below.

Chris Dudley
Dudley attended Yale and was drafted in 1987. He has played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, the New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks, Phoenix Suns, and Portland Trailblazers.
