    Brady should be hired as OC somewhere. Think of Trask under Brady passing attack.

    It is not "news" they are reporting. It's rumors.

    So the guy has:
    Two top 10 finishes
    Two ten win seasons
    Cotton and Rose bowl appearances.
    Had an 8-4 mark this year, and they want to run him?

    He did well as an interim as well. (Beating the #3 team in the country in his 2nd game)

    I know last year was a stinker, but it followed two really good top 10 seasons and he bounced back from last years bad one.

    Columbus is the 14th largest city in the country; it's got more people than San Francisco, and about double Atlanta. They do actually have a Saks.

    Atlanta metro is 3 times the size of Columbus. (6M - 2M)
    San Fran metro is 2.5 times larger than Columbus.

    City limit populations mean nothing.

    It's a city with almost a million people within its limits, which does actually mean something (mainly that it's not some little backwater college town).

    Sure...but I think his post was a joke. They have a NHL team. They don't just hand those out to backwater college towns. But comparing it to SF or ATL is odd given that those cities have outgrown their technical borders.

    Neither do square miles...since Jacksonville, FL is the biggest city in the country.

    being a hc at sow is actually imo an easier job than say ole piss, mizz, or arky. Let's face it, the ACC is crap. Right now clemson has it really good, it's them and then it's a pile of poo poo. A descent coach would have a better chance of winning than being in the sec west division. Of course who ever takes over the sow position will need lots of vaccinations and lysol, and penicillin.

    It can’t really be a good thing, when you have to make an official announcement that your HC will be back, for next year.

    Very true. But Urban and Shelley are both from Ohio, so that may not be a negative for them like it would be for a lot of us.

    So glad the Gators do not have COACH DRAMA like other Teams seem to have. Gators got their guy now and OH what Fun it is.
