Any idea who may be in the running for his replacement?

Wow, that's unexpected, isn't it?

I'm not in the know, but this caught me off guard.

Yeah me too. I wonder if the recent attrition at DB is related.

Sad to see him go, but there is enough good going right now that I won't let it get me down.

I'm okay with this and it's not entirely unexpected.  Our corners have been pretty good over the past 8-10 years, but at the next level, our corners have been moved to safety and our safeties, outside of Coleman, haven't been playing in the NFL.

Donte Whitner has been a beast for San Fran all year

Agreed.  He was one of those freak athletes at OSU.  He was good for OSU, but not spectactular, and jumped up to 8 or 9 in the draft.  Wasn't Chekwa being look at at FS for the Raiders?  I think DW was playing FS as well.

Why is that?  We had a real good run with corners (Winfield, Clements, Plummer) at the next level, but even Jenkins has been moved to safety. Speed, tackling ability or something else?

Who is Chuck Heater?

I always respected and liked Tom Bradley at Penn State. But he brings a lot of baggage from PEnn State.

I'm sure Bradley is just dying to be a cornerbacks coach.

Temple's D-Coordinator, who was the secondary coach at UF while Urban was there.  He coached with Earle Bruce back when Meyer was a grad assistant...............and he was a RB for the skunk bears.

Both to Arkansas? I guess that school knows who won, vacated or not

Would Chuck Heater really leave a D-Coordinator position to come work with Meyer again?

That's what I was wondering.  I have my doubts.  Regardless, I'm sure Urban will find a quality candidate.

Chuck Heater sounds good, but played for TTUN. I would question his anger and passion towards beating TTUN. I have heard that he is a great recruiter so that is a definite plus. If we got him, I would like for him to come out and say something along the lines of: I f....... hate TSUN, the only reason I went there is because Archie was at TOSU and I knew I could not beat them out. I know he would never say that, but I can dream.
