False. Urban let's guys know exactly where they stack up because he wants them to identify how to become better. True it's coach speak, but only in the sense that it's how he chooses to motivate people to take ownership over their actions and over their careers. It's very similar to Bridgewater (hedge fund) model of complete honesty towards building human capital.

That's not a transformer... It's a mass production Zeon mobile suit Zaku II. Silly Turkey's.

I'm going back to my nerd hole now...

Shaman chicken bones and an 8 ball. You need two data points you see...

You can't put work ethic and accountability on tape and I believe success at that level is more often just that. So, you have to resort to the dark arts you see...

My buddy worked with him at UF. He has a near photo graphic memory and epitomizes #grinding. Dude never stops.

"(Thankfully for me, Facebook was much cooler [and wilder] in the fall of 2005 than that broken-down water cooler most of y'all log into to this day.)"

I puke in my mouth a little every time I see buck I guy on tv. That new add made me projectile. 

Every new new coach search uses a 3rd party to gauge interest and setup meetings.

Since when does GEORGIA TECH get offended by this situation? I forget what school this is. Of course who cares about being  acurate (http://www.foxsports.com/college-football/story/michigan-state-spartans-new-sign-typo-080414) ....................................

Trust in Urban. It is more about shaping the young men after they sign (See Hoke, Brady)

1 million is worth not having a completely decimated recruiting class. The sooner the better for those pansies up north.

Urban has a lot of contingent parts outside direct compensation for his contract that isn't valued here such as an agreement with giant eagle for 30k worth of groceries for when he throws bbqs for players and the like.

We could pay Thad less to free up the money or reduce the number of sports or stop the payment of loans on the stadium rebuild from 1999 OR reduce the amount of money they pay back to the university... (Looks at Dave Brandon...) Gene is worth the money. If they could pay urban more they would. It's not that clear cut.
