That's an interesting point. One of the posters below included a link to Urban's contract. I was a bit surprised that Urban does not have the ability, without Gene's review, to hire/fire coaches (para 4.6) or even offer a scholarship (para 1.2). Due to not being able to make even these most routine decisions without a supervisor's approval, a CEO he is not. He is an elite coach though. And we are lucky to have him.

I'm in total agreement this compensation is in line with the market for high-performing coaches and I'm happy he is getting it.  However, the analogy of him being like a CEO of a major corporation doesn't compute.  How many people does Urban have under his control?  A couple hundred, maybe?  Hardly large corporation CEO numbers.  I would say Gene and (especially) Dr. Drake are more deserving of that analogy.  Find another comparison for Urban.

edit: took out a double and along with still deciding how that especially needs to be worked. #grammarproblems

I doubt we go fully vanilla as well. We may look a lot more like Auburn - mis directions and cleverly disguised run plays that don't put too much pressure on Cardale to make passing reads.

That said, the season is not over if we lose. Unlike 2012 when we didn't get the chance, we will greatly benefit from our bowl practices. Sure, we want a championship THIS year, but the bowl practices are going to be a huge help for next year's run with the young OL and the backfill talent.

Sick X10 catch, but I don't think it compares to the insanity of Tyree's catch for NYG in the Super Bowl. Yeah, maybe ODB's was technically more difficult, but the SB catch was for historical legend status.

Rewatched the IU game. IU's D played up fairly close to the LOS. I think the deep ball was there, but we've opted to control chains/ stay ahead of schedule since VT where we were bombs away. Also, some of DS' targets were poor throws by JT. One of JT's INTs were overthrowing JT on an open long cross.

I'm inclined to think the way you do, Nathan. What will sell me on this topic is whether the legend Mark Price is able to get anything from MKG this year in Charlotte. MKG's stroke was just nasty. If MP can teach him how to shoot, I will start to come around if a J is able to be learned.

Would have loved to see him play bball. He definitely has elite speed. I would want to see his jumper. I'm not sure I wholly agree with you that a shot can be taught. I mean, he has been focusing on throwing the football and he still struggles with the shot-put motion. 

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Would have loved for that tatgate team to have had a shot. So many weapons and it was stolen from us. 

Im gonna check in with Titus on Twitter and see if he is willing to weigh in on this thread. I asked a similar question to him about Braxton a little over a year ago and he offered some wisdom about how some of the pure quick/speed guys fared on the hardwood in his day.

Agreed, YT. I don't think there should be a qualifier in your statement about off-field voilence for just punching a woman, however.  As Goodell (I know, hardly the bastion for ethics, but he said it well, nonetheless) stated about AP, there should be full restraint in assaulting those that are easy/weaker targets. Which makes that MGOBlog idiot just as bad - punching/attacking a kid or someone of lesser stature of you is just as vile, imo. There's a reason that wrestling/boxing/mma has weight classes. Be a man! Fight someone your own size. (Or be an adult and don't fight anyone at all, which is almost always the appropriate play).

2015 spring game is shaping up to be epic.  

Comment 16 Nov 2014

Agreed, EPH. Les is gonna use the UM opening and get PAID from LSU like Saban did with Texas/Bama- house payments from boosters and all. Leverage.

Love the video!

I know the prime time games are important, but I'm cool with the occasional 12EST kick. What's not to love about getting my Buckeye hit earlier in the day and still have my Saturday night to spend with the ladies?
