Other programs, even successful ones like Alabama, struggle with student attendance. 

I love taking shots at Bama when I can, but going to have to disagree with this one.  They lead the country pretty much every year in Spring Game attendance (73k this year) and are annually in the top 5 in total attendance.

Sort of, but we'd do the exact same thing if the scenario were reversed.  Not a doubt in my mind.

Louisville was the ACC challenge, so UNC is really the only one we tried to get.  Wisconsin also played Marquette like we did, but they also had Duke, Oklahoma, Georgetown, Cal, etc.  Mich St had both Duke and Kansas - before November was even over.

I'm pretty sure almost all of the Buckeye clips in that hype video were from last year.

I dont think most want us to.  I've seen PSU and Wisc fans hope that we beat Bama and then lose to Oregon/FSU, which would be the best of both worlds for them - help the B1G reputation, but still don't have to deal with us winning a championship.

Love Warriner, but realistically he's gone after next year.  Urban will probably want a little more continuity and get somebody on another 2-year commitment.

Agreed.  This isnt totally applicable to the high pay that these coaches get, but they did a study and found that happiness increases with salary only until you pass about $70-75k, then it basically plateaus.  The general idea is that once your needs are being met, hours and stress become more important than just making more money.  

Herman's gone eventually, but I wonder if he's realized his choices will be better the longer he stays.  You'd have to think that some of the top guys (Pat Narduzzi, Kirby Smart) could have almost any job that came open if they wanted it.

Maybe they saw Cardales job and thought anyone could obviously do it, while Boykin dragged his team to 11-1 himself. I don't agree with that, but that's my best guess.
