Is he going to upgrade the academics for UM football players if he goes there, considering he famously blasted them over it a few years ago?

Even if he goes there, he won't stick around. His personality wears on people and his former players don't like him for the most part from what I've read. Richard Sherman being the most famous example.

In any business one doesn't get paid for past results, as one has already been paid for the past. One gets paid for current results. When Jack Welch ran GE he famously evaluated everyone constantly and got rid of the bottom 10% of performers. Urban should be just as ruthless with his assistants. For example, Saban got rid of Nussmeyer and replaced him with Kiffin when his offense started to stagnate just a little bit.

Raiders is the obvious choice, but Cowboys could fire Garrett if they flame out again.

If the kid didn't play for my hometown high school and goes out of state, I could not care less how he fares. Not that I wish ill will on anyone (well maybe I did for C. Woodson because he was such a jackass). For example, do you really feel "Ohio pride" about Luke Kuechly? Personally, I only really care if a Buckeye makes it in the pro's regardless of the state he's from.

Comment 12 Dec 2014

Yeah, I remember back in the day when the Buckeye boards on Rivals were actually being used that his Coach Rios would often post updates. That was a bitter loss to Sneaky Pete. USC's classes were just unreal, never duplicated to this date by anyone. Meyer came the closest at UF. I really thought that Tressel would reel in a monster class full of 5*'s right after the 2002 natty, but it was not to be. 

Comment 12 Dec 2014

This applies to any kid choosing to play out of state, including the ones OSU reels in, but that kid better like the town he's going to potentially for the long term because if football doesn't work out he just lost a great perk of being a hometown hero, i.e, landing a job. To put it bluntly, no one in Ohio is going to give a rat's arse that Trey DePriest played football at Alabama and offer him a job in insurance, sales, broadcasting, etc. simply for that fact. I've seen tons of Buckeyes around C-bus and the surrounding areas in random jobs.

Comment 11 Dec 2014

OSU has never been accused or proven of systemic cheating/paying players. Alabama has a long history of actually doing so. From getting nailed by the NCAA and being a hair of the death penalty for trying to buy Albert Means for $200k in '94 to the NCAA turning a blind eye to all the shenanigans going on there now (DJ Fluker, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, T-Town Menswear, Every player driving a new Dodge Charger, etc.)

I get it that $500 handshakes happen everywhere, but I doubt this level of systemic cheating happens everywhere, much less OSU. ESPN camped out in C-bus during the MoC saga and couldn't find anything.

Comment 10 Dec 2014

I really wouldn't mind Michigan getting Miles or Harbaugh....and Urban crushing them. That would be ideal. Who would they turn to then?

Comment 09 Dec 2014

Ask any blowhard could Alabama have won if Sims went down 11 days before the season started and if Coker went down a week before the SEC title game? Could Oregon have won without Marriota and his backup?

Comment 08 Dec 2014

Urban has been waiting for this moment for 4 years. Saban is going to get boot to ass.

Comment 08 Dec 2014

Whenever I need a laugh this week I just go read the BayLOL (that's what the Aggies call them) forums. I have read that Wisconsin threw the game in order to get a cut of the playoff money, and that Tom Osborne's vendetta against the B12 kept them out! Oliver Stone can't even make these conspiracy theories up.

Comment 07 Dec 2014

What an awesome season. Happy for Cardale having his moment in the sun after being a good soldier for so long. Just sad there's only 1 month left and then I'll have to suffer through my annual withdrawal symptoms. Safe to say if you're posting here you're a cfb junkie/addict!
