Let's say, instead of coming from Florida with the background and established resume, Urban was hired from a RR trajectory (Maybe from Utah). Florida coaching time didn't exist. How would the reaction have been for you? Would he have been received like RR was in that deer tick state up north, with division from the start? Both brought a dramatic change to the previous and well established team philosophy. With his Ohio roots and unapologetic love for OSU, would that have avoided the 'Michigan Man' type drama here? Heck, by that comparison ... had RR grown up in enemy territory with a lifelong professed love, would he have had a different reception by some?
To be clear (because we've had some very sensitive ppl lately), I couldn't be happier with the direction of OSU Football. I'm not comparing Urban to RR in a realistic sense. Had a friend from the meechickens tell me last night that I would've felt the same way if Meyer was hired with no Florida, Tebow, NC's etc in the resume. Was interesting to think about and curious what you all think your reaction would have been.
