Well, yeah, of course he disagreed with them on that. It would be extremely bizarre if he came out and said, "You know what, I'm totally on board with being barred from leading the team through training camp and the first three games of the season, and I applaud the University administration for its decision." I don't think anyone would dispute that Urban was clearly pissed during that press conference. What we're discussing, though, is whether that experience irrevocably damaged his relationship with the University, and I think it's clear that it did not. If their relationship were "shot", as you put it, why would he still be working--even if he's only doing so nominally--for OSU? What incentive would either party have to maintain the employment relationship after his retirement? Neither OSU (and by extension, Michael Drake) nor Urban are behaving like there's any bad blood. I think OSU fans who insist that Urban hates the administration are projecting their own feelings onto him.

Without looking at the numbers I would imagine that the Pac 12 is also up there as far as top academic conferences go--though maybe it's just top heavy. Cal, UCLA, and Stanford are obviously elite, and Washington and Colorado are very good schools, as well. Don't know about the rest, but I don't think there's another conference with three schools on the same level as Cal, UCLA, and Stanford.

JFC, I'm not saying he's lying. I'm noting that I grew up in the area and have never heard of any military colleges or universities in North Carolina. Did a google search to find out which ones exist and nothing came up--just prep schools for high school age kids. If anyone wants to enlighten me as to which military colleges/universities are in NC, I'd appreciate it--sincerely.

I googled "military universities in North Carolina" and all I got are military academies (i.e., high schools) and "military-friendly schools" which just means that they have a lot of benefits for troops and their families. I'm not trying to be a dick; I grew up in a military family on the east  coast and have never heard of any military universities in that region other than VMI or the Citadel. What did you find?

We had a QB last year who couldn't run. That didn't stop him from putting up 62 points in the last game of the regular season, as you may recall.

I'm not sure I fully understand the rest of this thread since your comment was deleted, but I'm glad Jason cleared things up below.

That's not what I'm saying, nor is that what it is written at the link I posted. It is a privately owned company, as opposed to a publicly traded company. That's what is meant by independent business any time you hear that term used.

You're right about 2016*, but I'm not sure about 2017, at least in terms of who was better at the end of the season. Haskins looked considerably better than JT when he came into the Michigan game in '17. I'm not sure we would have won that game if JT hadn't gone down, honestly.

*That said, part of me thinks Burrow might have put at least six points on the board against Clemson.
