I would argue that the AP and Coach's poll still do mean something an influence, because that is how the CFP committee determines how "hard" your schedule was and if you had any marquee wins or losses when they start putting together their rankings.  You beat a team ranked by the AP or Coach's poll, it still usually looks good going into November.

Osu78, I concur.  You can have an emotional attachment to a team, yet still recognize it's a bad professional move to agree to coach it.  For better or worse, coaches are creatures of reputation. If you have a good reputation, you get better job offers and bigger salaries.  It's not a smart professional move to accept a job that may set you up for failure (no matter how good you really are) and destroy your professional reputation that you spent years cultivating.

One thing to keep in mind though:  it goes both ways. If you stipulate that coaches stay at least 2 years before looking for other opportunities, you have to give them 2 years of opportunity to prove their worth before replacing them.  As much as people bitch and moan about Urban being "too loyal" or nepotistic, if you expect loyalty from your staff, you have to show loyalty in return.

I could possibly see him going to Notre Dame IF he's able to get his health straightened out.  Medical advances happen all the time, and one to better solve his cyst issue may potentially happen.  However, if it doesn't happen soon, I think he really is done.  I never really saw Urban coaching for another 10 year stretch.  He always said he wanted to be done by his 60s.
