Considering that Tampa Bay is paying him at a much higher level (offset by OSU contract), signing for one year, matching the end of the Tampa contract, is the only way to handle this.  

If he comes back for the 2nd year (good chance based upon commitment to Meyer, unless unique elite opportunity arises), his compensation will skyrocket to over $1 million a year to better reflect his market value as a DC with OSU...

The Oregon game was by far, Tyvis Powell's best game!!!  Prior to that, all season long, he played back on his heels with an aversion to direct contact...  Something changed between the Alabama game and the Oregon game, somebody, Ash, Meyer, or someone lit a fire and got into his grill in a way that changed his game...

Great review Ross!!

I thought that this was by far, the best game preparation, game plan, and play calling on Offense of the Urban Meyer era!!

MSU was off balance on Defense the entire game!

I'm surprised that the article didn't reference the fact that the roles, reads and responsibilities have been SIMPLIFIED.  Whereas in the past couple of years we had guys struggling with the mental aspects and as such, playing slow; now, magically, they are playing with confidence and command...  

This is a huge benefit to the younger guys as, in the past (i.e. Mitchell), they couldn't see the field because they didn't have the command of the complex defense down...

I don't believe there is any such thing as responsibilities actually being split with a "co" role.  For so many reasons, there has to be one in charge and ultimately making the decisions.  The assignments of "co" in titles seem more like a means of recognizing seniority and justifying higher pay than other staff assistants...

A good question to ask Urban Meyer would be: "Coach, when you were hired for the 2012 season, and joining with the previous HC Luke Fickell, how come Luke didn't maintain the Head Coach title and you take on the Co-Head Coach title??"  When he either comments that it is the stupidest question he's ever heard or gives a disgusted look, then ask "How come you are doing just this to Chris Ash??"
