I wish the MODs would get a better handle on this. When voting was new, it was somewhat the wild wild west (my own record included), but I feel the 11W community has kind of sorted out and established which posts are DV worthy or not... and most of us understand that.

I think you're spot on, KMP. Urban has an incredible ability to recruit and motivate 18-22yr old elite talent on Saturday's. Sundays (and Mondays and Thursdays) is a different beast altogether. You're talking elite of elite, and all grown ass men making millions of dollars. 

Not saying he couldn't be successfull, but if continued coaching excellence is his goal, coaching another blue blood college program (USC, ND?) is a far better bet.

Urban's best attribute was his ability to recruit talent. He's a fantastic offensive mind... but an even better recruiter. The NFL would take that away from him.. with any team he could potentially coach.

Not going to downvote... but that is an ignorant post. Snyder brought A TON of positive attention to wrestling and OSU. He went out a champion, and is now pursuing success in his post-college career, where he thinks it'll be of most benefit. Yeah... it sucks that place is at PSU.. but fuck.. how entitled are you to judge that without ever having any stake in it?

Also interested in what goods or services he is now TRADING in? Please do tell.

I respectfully disagree. If anything, I believe Urban would double down and coach in the manor he feels most comfortable coaching. There was a reason Bill Davis and Greg Schiano remained on his staff, there was a reason Dwayne (not a running QB) Haskins was running read option on 3rd and short last year. That was Day's offense, but Meyer had the final say in plays called, and those option plays when it was tight had Meyer's fingerprints all over them. 

He was a brilliant offensive innovator, and probably the best motivator out there.. but at his age, I just don't see him changing his style. With that said... I don't doubt for a second that he could go to a college blue blood and have them contending for the CFP in a year or two. Some coaching styles work better in college, others in the Pro's... ask Nick Saban.

Comment 26 Nov 2019

I just can't see Urban being successful in the NFL. It would immediately take away his biggest strength as a college coach (recruiting top talent), and his spread to run/read option offense would get his QB hurt in a hurry in the NFL. He's a fantastic coach and an even better motivator, but I just don't see his style translating well to the next level.

Ehhhh.. Samuel and Campbell are both active NFL players seeing playing time... I'd be thrilled if any of the incoming receivers bring the playmaking ability they both possessed. And while KJ lacks the explosiveness of either Samuel or Campbell, he has very reliable hands and a knack for getting open. "Way better" is a stretch.. until they prove it.

Upvote for your comment, but I respectfully disagree. I've said this before, but 18' was very clearly a pass-first offense with a Pro Style QB. All the QB commits we have now are pro-style.. so I really can't blame a 5* RB from shying away... we need to show we can use a RB effectively in a pass-first offense. I think Dobbins' resurgance this season only bolsters the argument that we need a dual threat QB to make the RB's shine. Just my .02

Watched the game Saturday night with a contingent of UM and ND fans.. the OSU fans in house were having to bite our tongues... that was an ugly ass game by ND. With ratings taken away, that looked like a barely top twenty UM beating up an unranked ND squad. I can't imagine any legit top 10 team coaches saw anything that gave them cause for concern. Really hoping the CFP committee puts the preseason rankings aside and truly tries to find the best top ten teams in the country.

Taylor is going to get his yards... and maybe break one or (gulp) two. Other than that, I agree. 35-10 is what I'm going with.

Comment 22 Oct 2019

Agreed. Most of my memories in the 90's revolve around my Dad's disappointment after a loss to TTUN... I dont care to experience anything like that from my own perspective. Their season is basically shot now... their one shot at glory will be taking OSU down... stay sharp Bucks!!!!
