I did the Sprint iPhone for life thing and so far so good. Every time Apple roles out a new iPhone I take mine in and they give me the new version at no additional cost.
There isn't anything I don't like about Harris or his game. Can't imagine what will happen after Coach Mick gets him into camp. We obviously need WRs but Harris is just the sort of frame/athlete that Urban had so much success with at Florida with those hybrid TE/WR guys. Excited to see Harris this fall.
Good for Gene. Assuming we stay in the playoff mix he gets a $20K check for having to be recused from the process. Cha-ching.
11W should hold a tryout with similar drills. I would gladly give anyone who can break a 5.0 40 a buckeye leaf. Can't imagine how nerve racking this must have been. Great read..
I'd want it to be someone we could schedule 4 games with ( 2 home and homes). We already have games with TCU, Oregon and Notre Dame coming up...Clemson would be awesome. Texas. Seems like a Florida team would make a lot of sense which would give a lot of potential recruits an in state game for their parents and friends.
One of the BIGGEST problems was guys not running routes at 100% when they knew they weren't part of the play. The old "sell the route" every play. Again, as you said could be laziness but then why did some of the re-peat offenders continue to see the field??
Are we sure its still Zach's WR room? Conventional wisdom was we would have kept Warinner on as something with the team because we most likely can expand to 10 coaches in April. We didn't do that. For sure maybe that bridge was burned but Urban isn't going to play with 9 coaches next year if the NCAA says we can have 10 in April.
So the 10th guy would be brought in to coach what group?? We just got a new OC/tight end coach, new QB Coach and a new linebacker coach. Coombs, Alford and Johnson aren't going anywhere. I'm assuming Stud stays on to coach OLine and Schiano stays on to coach defense.
So that means we have a new assistant coach being hired or already hired under the agreement they will be announced/hired in April to coach what group??
Barring any kind of overlap ( like Coombs switches to corners and we bring in a coach to coach safeties... very doubtful) we are either bringing in a full time special teams coach or Zach is sliding over to special teams and we bring in a new WR coach.
Few "only" makes $1.2M. He's the one guy that seems like if you offered him Thad's salary $3.4M you get to a point where that's a big difference in pay. You could even go up a little higher to sweeten the pot and he still wouldn't crack top 5 and wouldn't be paid more than Urban. Don't know Few and he may be a West Coast guy content with his gig/salary but very people on the planet won't listen to an offer if you start with "we can 3x-4x your salary"..
You draw a line in the sand... if this goes to 0-x then you decide to let Thad go mid-season. "Health caught up with him" and let him bow out gracefully instead of being fired after a 15 loss season.
The reason you move on from Thad today is you can sell it as injury related ( to Thad) and then anything you do from this point forward is about next season. Brutus could coach the rest of the season. Wins and loses are meaningless. Get Poter and Wesson 30+ minutes a night, Let Jent play out the string and start the coaching hire THIS WEEK..
They can do it now and save face with his health issues. On some level ( maybe more than we know) once his health got worse the product suffered. You let him go sooner than later and then give guys like Wesson and Poter 30 minutes a night.
At this point it's basically does Thad make it to March as head coach.... doubtful imo.
Different night. Same problem. Got a bunch of guys that would look really good on a deep team with a couple of bonafide 5 star kids.
Sadly it's not about people in the seats.. it's about LA being a GIANT TV market and the dollars that creates and more importantly doesn't create when the NFL isn't there. Someone did the math the other day and the Chargers would make more money on the season with zero seats sold in LA vs selling out every game in San Diego.... this is ALL about money.. :(
When your reads are... not open, not open, not running the right route etc etc those things happen. I wish he take off and run a little sooner but when your head coach is telling you DON'T TURN THE BALL OVER and guys can't get open it's a recipe for bad offense... hence all the changes..
Sorry, didn't mean the school. Meant Urban. When asked in the past he said he couldn't comment other than to say he didn't agree with the suspension. Just curious if Urban is asked at some point ( which he will be) if he still had to basically say no comment. Just wasn't sure what the rules were :)
I don't think running JT is Urban's favorite play... I think it's just his go to nervous nelly play at times. Like MSU last year. Don't turn the ball over, they won't score and we win. That was the gameplan. This is year it was just a go to play because nothing else much was working. Weber was still learning the position at the college level and the OLine was young so again I think it was just sort of run JT. Maybe semantics but I don't think it's Urban's favorite play... just the play that worked a lot given the hand he was dealt on offense...
Thanks! for the uv :)
That's the dream scenario imo. Keep him on as an elite recruiter, takes special teams off Urbans plate and potentially brings in someone with a different more pro-style approach to coaching WRs... win, win, win..
How about bonus question #6... how will the remaining transfers/medical waivers effect questions 1-5. Still think we are going to see some guys leave zone 6..
Does the confidentiality go out the window now that he's not a student or on the team? If it's something joe-public shouldn't know I get them being quiet... but sure would be curious what ended his career ( something Urban never agreed with).
Best of luck TG in Cincy!
They could still turn this around...but if they don't going to be interesting to see what they do with Thad during the season. Do you just let this crash and burn all the way to March? Do you let Thad go and slide Jent in as a temporary fix so you can start the coaching search sooner than later? tough times..
Why not close off the upper bowl for basketball games? You put the people who do show up all in the lower bowl and at least it starts to look full and would probably be louder. We'd even have a few "sell-outs" I'd imagine.
You can only change name/uniforms once every 5 years and they did it in 2012 so for next season they are the "san diego chargers" with the same uniforms.
