It is still funny to watch the media with Urban. I watched a short clip of Urban discussing Kenny Guyton Guiton? He started out by saying he didn't think much of him which gave the media a collective pause. I still adore JT, but he was the King of saying something while giving away nothing...as well as the tried and true sports cliches. He always stayed positive, and you never had any idea of what his real opinion was. He was a class act and a great coach, but I love Urban's tell it like it is style--he actually started out critical and ends on a positive. For instance, he started with he didn't think much of Kenny when he first got here, but he had improved in his job of being a student-athlete in the last month and half. The reporters asked him for specifics and he flat out said that was between Kenny and him. He had the same technique when he talked about Briton Dunn. I have yet to see him bring up a player that he leaves at "I'm not impressed." He tends to highlight the players that are improving and doesn't really comment on the rest unless it is in a general way--which I like.
It has been fun watching the media make the transition as well because there is still that collective pause from them when he gives them a straight answer:)
