The Transfer Portal: The Gift and the Curse
"If you're an athletic director and you've got a vacancy, are you now going to put at the top of that yellow pad, find someone who brings the halo effect with them so that we can get to the portal right away and the NIL money makes sense for them too. Is that now going to enter into coaching decisions and if so, how does anyone ever get to go from Bowling Green to Utah like you did? It's going to be tough for an athletic director to go take a chance on a Mac coach, isn't it? Yeah, the world's changed so much. I do believe that's, I won't say it's one, two, maybe it's certainly in the top 5 when you start saying I'm going to hire a coach. What kind of swagger what type of appeal does he have on social media? How can he attract the portal? You know, I saw staff. There's almost 3000 people in the portal just in the last two weeks. 3000. There's not 2000 scholarships available. And I've heard the story about the player that leaves the university with the grass is greener mentality and all of a sudden that doesn't show up. The other on a tenant consequence is a lot of these high school seniors I read a story the other day that he's waiting on offer than the offer right now the schools are tonal. We can't offer you until we really search this portal because we need immediate help at certain positions. So once again, there's some good about it, a player has a choice. I witnessed that myself when I was a coach of a player wasn't playing for us, and he had a chance to go to a lower level school start. We were all for it, especially when he graduated. But the unintended consequences right now is if I don't start, I leave. And I'm not sure that's a good thing. No,
Is the Transfer Portal Good for College Football
"Coach, do you think it's going to, I worried, and I said to my colleagues, my interlocutors, they're off the record. I'm not going to tell you they are that places like Ohio State have an advantage. And so I don't really, I'm not sure I want the portal to go away or the NIL to go away, but they countered that a lot of kids are being approached by a lot of agents and one of them talked about a high profile transfer. Is that actually happening is NIL causing kids to enter the portal in your opinion to a significant degree and is that bad for the game? There's no question that's happening. You saw the best receiver in America, Lee Pitt went to USC and I have some friends at USC that were aware of is certainly was that that they were, you know, listening to what's available to them. And I guess in the capital in the capitalistic society, that's a more power to them. That if you can, you know, it's no different than a college coach or a talk show host. You have a chance to better your family. That's your business. But is it good for the game of football to just share a quick story with you that I was a graduate assistant in 1986 at a house state woody Hayes was still alive Earl Bruce was a coach. I'm 21 years old and he walked in and talked about the culture of our House state number one is a premium placed on education. He threatened every one of our jobs if our players didn't graduate. Number two was toughness you and that was the toughest team all those wins and number three was team first selflessness and you sit here and look, here we are in 2022 and a lot of the recruiting is now based upon what's the best offer, you know, it's not about education. And unfortunately, I think there's still a lot of about education, but the stories I'm hearing from, excuse me, colleagues, is that a lot of this is based upon the highest bidder.
Urban Meyer Shares His Thoughts on NIL
"I hang out with a lot of beltway types. A couple of Republican senators who I went to talk with and break bread with, spent most of the time talking about name image and likeness and how it's screwing up their college programs and every senator has a lot of state colleges as they worry about. And the numbers are getting astronomical. What do you think NIL is doing to your game that you love so much, coach Meyer? I think it was the appropriate thing, you know, had to have players received financial or have the ability for a student athlete to earn money, you know, there's so many unintended consequences of something like that without any regulation without any type of, you know, whether it be salary cap, whether it be unionization, and the unintended consequences are the idea that pay for play or inducement and recruiting would be there for people involved in this profession for a long time. You knew that would become part of it. So first of all, I think a lot of these numbers are way overblown from I'm here for a lot of my colleagues. There's a lot of agents involved, and they're trying to get obviously as much money possible for their players and when you hear some of these numbers once again, this is not I'm just telling what I hear from my colleagues. These numbers are way out of proportion. You know, some might be true but the majority, that's not true with some of these numbers that you see coming across the media right now that millions of dollars, there's certainly our players earning good money, but for the most part, a lot of this is way overblown.

"urban meyer" Discussed on The Audible with Feldman And Mandel
"Coached a game. And then he tried to hire Chris Doyle, who had been run out of Iowa over many, many, many allegations of racist racist comments toward players. That got scuttled. It was just like one thing after another after another where his credibility, he had no credibility. And you know what's interesting about this whole time was there have been plenty of coaches who failed in the NFL, but the fact that the stuff kept leaking, told me that there were a lot of people there that just didn't want him there. You've covered him. Do you think he has a realistic shot of being a college coach? Again. Well, never say never because it only takes one. You know, I would not have guessed Bobby petrino would become a college coach. But look where Bobby betts are coaching. No knock on the place he's coaching. Urban Meyer, I could be totally wrong on this. Urban Meyer is not going to be coaching at some school that is like that he was not going to be paying attention to before. He's not going to be the head coach at Indiana state. He's not going to be the head coach at New Mexico. He's not going to be the head coach if perdue ever came open. I just would be shocked if he would, if he would say, hey, I'm going to coach it somewhere that I do not have a realistic shot of really competing for a national title. I mean, I'm of the opinion at this point the baggage is so much that it makes him untouchable. I mean, we already know that USC read the time. People are like, oh, they're definitely going to hire her. Charles was not. We had reported that Harold vault was not did not touch urban Meyer. Let's not forget that Texas, less than a year, about a year ago, was ready to hire urban Meyer for urban Meyer would have them, and that was with all of the Zack Smith stuff. All of the baggage up to. So the question is, is what happened in Jacksonville enough that even those schools are like, yeah, we can't go there. I think it's a small pool of schools of the cross section of who would go who would he be willing to consider and would those schools like you'd figure in that pile would be Notre-Dame? No, I wouldn't think that's happening now. And then it's like taxes because they had dance there, but I'm not sure how many other places I could see him a wanting to live and be feeling like they have a realistic chance to compete for a national title. I think if he wants to be a college head coach again, who knows if he does, it would be at Bowling Green. It would be at Toledo. Or like a high level. You think he wants you there? No, I'm saying if he wanted to be, that's what would have to be. That's who would probably be willing to take that chance. Oh, I don't doubt that there would be plenty of schools in college football and I think someone would power 5 schools would be would jump at the chance to hire urban Meyer if they could. I just don't think so this is the same schools that he would want to be at. You say that they would jump at the chance. Yeah, if you're just looking at on the field record, of course you would jump at the chance he was a wildly successful college coach, but everywhere he's been, it ends badly. It ends in controversy. Do you think if you asked him to deal with that again if you asked Ohio State fans if they would say it ended badly? I mean, they would regret having hired him. He led them into a national title. They went to a bunch of big bowls. I mean, I'm guessing if we were to call Albert breer right now, who's like a huge Ohio State fan in the media and said, Albert, do you think Ohio State never should have hired urban Meyer? I'm guessing most of those. Oh no, I'm not saying that. Of course, of course there's he elevated that program, frankly. Let me elevate it the big event. The big time. Right. But it's not that I don't think our House safe fans regret hiring him by any means, but if Ryan day left for the Chicago Bears at the end of the season, would any Ohio State fan want him back? Well, I'm sure there's a lot of options for someone. I don't think it would be the majority. I think he burned that bridge. Maybe we should have Bill lambda to do a poll on that. I think you're wrong. It's ball season and these days, bowl season could be a little confusing. You don't know which players are playing. You probably can't remember which coaches are coaching which team. And then do you even know who the sponsors are? I don't think there's a weed whacker bowl anymore. Cheez it is not an Arizona. It's in Florida now. So it's very confusing, but here's the thing. There are people who can help guide you through it and the best people to do it are.

"They go out to Tennessee and lose 20 to nothing in this one. But the story as of the entire weekend pretty much is more urban Meyer stuff. And this time it came from a very unusual source, which is the league's in-house media arm who reported all sorts of unhappiness with Meyer among players, Marvin Jones specifically among staff who allegedly at least implied were losers as a pair as compared to him who is a winner at 211 at this point. But I guess he was probably in like two and ten or two and 9 when he said that. But this is just more smoke around what continues to be in utter disaster, like this could not possibly be going worse right now. Yeah, and another day when Trevor Lawrence, he throws four interceptions and you just wonder what the heck is urban Meyer actually doing to get the most out of Trevor Lawrence. But beyond that, he just seems like a guy that doesn't want to be in the NFL. That thought he could just walk in and that it would be easy and he wouldn't have to change his approach or rethink his approach or try anything new. He just could do the same thing he's always done. And very quickly realized he was out of his depth, which was elucidated by his postgame remark to Vick Fangio. That's every week is like playing Alabama. And he just, now he seems like a guy who just doesn't want to be here. I mean, his postgame press conference was really bizarre, you know, there was the question about the offensive line, play being poor and the reporter seemed very worked up about it. And urban Meyer was just like, the reporter said something like, you know, they're paid too much to be playing this poorly. I never admire was just like, yeah. And then there was the part where he was saying anyone who's leaking information will be terminated immediately. It's like, when you're at the point, this goes for any organization. When you're at the point, when you care more about who is leaking the information, then the fact that what is being leaked happened and is not good and is not being received well, then you're just really, you can't go on as a leader at that point anymore. Yeah, I realized that the previous four years has kind of given us a different perspective on leaks and whistleblowers and a different take on it, I guess, from a leadership perspective, but like most sane people would view that as, oh, I need to look at myself and see what I'm doing wrong because it seems like an awful lot of people are upset with me. And instead it was like, no, I'm gonna get to the bottom of this and just fire everybody. But that illustrates to me sort of the bottom line difference. Like know, I saw people sort of saying, oh, well, he's always been like this, but that doesn't mean it's a good thing..

"urban meyer" Discussed on Debate Amongst Friends With Doc & Prof
"More. Obviously two teams are going to get some great chess pieces as we move to the middle of season I'm wondering if something else crazy happens like out. The steelers released big band. Some crazy saying like because that's the kind of week it seems like it's we're we're headed like that's a really crazy to me but what's also crazy as what you mentioned to me off the stream yesterday. And that's urban meyer being on the hot seat already now when you when you told me this. Obviously i made a joke. Put myself in his shoes right on to get over mired but then i hear it doesn't even really about football like yes. It's about football but now it's not about football it's becoming i. It's it's about him getting a lap dance and a bar. I didn't see the video. I didn't hear the audio. I just saw. It's more than just that. Like i feel like people are going to focus on that but it was more than that. Like doc used the term to coach. It never lose the locker right. I think that's what happened the lap gate. I don't i don't you dare go any further. You stop you stop right there. Don't you dare go any g you. Yes gate laugh gate hashtag lap gay. That's it or making a lump. Let me put that down as a hashtag. That's the official thumbnail for this show now. Oh yeah i don't do that. Urban don't do that. go ahead to you. would you say d. image or viral tick-tock or whatever. It was writing. All the world was more of the cherry on top. Because there's an run the fact that they were talking about going back to college to coach after week one so they did. I kinda yeah who think that. The lap dance awkwardness. That occurred is the reason why we're talking no not at all. I will say this. And i'm glad you mentioned that because as you so eloquent eloquently purchase these nick sabin books. Were me and i. Obviously i found another resources. Well i found another audio books. i. I'm getting nonstop statement. I got i got hard covers. I got an audio book. I said i'm going to go deep dive into nick sabin so obviously we know nick. Sabin came to the getting those statements. I am he came to the nfl. And i heard the story. This is from a different perspective from the book so far but the guy told the story of the inside discussion between nick sabin at that time. The general manager of the dolphins which can't remember his name and the athletic director of the university of alabama. So nick did not want to go to alabama He wanted to stay in miami and try to finish the she told the media. I am not going back to college but that stor right. You wanna try. But inside. he was having a i. Guess internal dialogue about returning to college and it was his wife who really wanted to go to college because nfl wives. I guess don't really have a place in football whereas in college you know it's almost like you're like the first lady kinda thing so And raising your kids in miami compared to probably alabama. i mean. it's probably apples and oranges. I mean i you know it is what it is but i remember him saying. I don't want to leave. Because i know i just told him that i wasn't going. You know what i'm saying. And here we go he got urban meyer saying hey. I don't want to go back to college. I just got here. Urban really. just got here. But we've seen with the atlanta falcons situation right. I mean that was really really bad And i believe it was. Midseason when the falcons coach left and that was Don't know why. Brian kelly qena. Dang willa wasn't brian kelly. Oh my god he went to. Ucla oh my again. I think his name but it'll come to me. I'm pretty sure But after that season or more junior. That's what it was it was It was more. I know johnny chris. Somebody howdy bobby. Patrice between really. Yeah oh that makes even worse. 'cause but ever gino so bobby between us it was jim moret junior for some reason. I don't know why did he leave a college team. I just throw him or jimmy ended up us for no reason. Actually oh god or it was him but whatever but yes pacino. Left team midseason. I don't think every minority there was the head. Coach for the falcons before by trina and he was. Hey for two thousand. Four hundred thousand six Anyway urban meyer yeah. Urban meyer. probably should've waited and went back to college. But i mean i don't blame the jaguars for taking the splash I think if i was urban meyer like i said my first hire like i would have done my best matter of fact our scratch out if i was a jaguars i would have went in called job radi. I know he only had one year. As an as an assistant coach under the panthers and matt rule but i would have called joe brady i would hire joe brady And we would have just had to row with that that young head coach because him and obviously anything could have happened but it is what it is. So you're thinking it's more than just a wooden just at gates locker room.
"urban meyer" Discussed on The Business of Sports With Andrew Brandt
"I didn't have to deal a lot of problems on breath so other players. Yeah these were issues but here we are. Urban meyer is staying. urban meyer. Makes whatever makes ten plus million dollars. One of the highest coaches in ligo never coached a down in the nfl before month ago. So here we go. I guess my point is yes. There might be more clause in that contract yes. There could be four caused. Firing which would eliminate the financial obligation of the jaguars but my senses now that contracts written in favor of the coach of of meyer because meyer had the leverage in the negotiation. Just my two cents. They're trying to look at things a little bit differently but the obvious is there. I mean anyone can figure that out. He put himself in a compromise position with a woman grinding on. That's just not good not good look and then of course. There's the personal side with his merit would to me. That's between him and his wife. We don't need to jump into that. Okay that's one of my rants. And i you know i just i just wanna say that urban meyer. I don't think he's in a bad spot. I mean let me say that he is in a bad spot. But i don't i think they're afraid to fire him for all the financial consequences that it would happen if they did. And of course it's early okay.

I have a lot of interest in i know. Baseball playoffs are going on a comment on that as we get closer to the world series. But you know. I always like talking about the beginning of seasons. Especially in this co- era and we're seeing deja vu in the nba. Like we saw in the nfl about vaccinations. Listen the nba. Roger goodell i'm of the nba. Adam silver is taking a page out of the nfl. Roger goodell with this meaning no mandatory vaccinations so even those schools and businesses are mandatory vaccination. That has not happened in team. Sports not happened in the nfl. It's not happening in the nba. However they are making life as they did with the nba nfl. The nba is making life. More difficult not as difficult with the nfl but more difficult for the unvaccinated and we've had a lot of high profile players and discussions over the last week from big name players. The biggest name being kyrie irving of the brooklyn nets we've heard from andrew wiggins very reticent to discuss his status but it's while reported that he's unvaccinated jonathan isaac from the orlando magic. Who's very articulate. But what these guys filled a realize is that they're not tennis players. I mean maybe. I fail to realize maybe too harsh. What i'm pointing out is they're not tennis players. They're not golfers they're not. You know whatever.
"urban meyer" Discussed on The Business of Sports With Andrew Brandt
"Urban meyer. This has been the story of the week in the. Nfl video appears nine. Second video with a woman. Grinding against urban meyer at a bar where. He appears to be having a good time. Nothing wrong with that. Now it has taken on a life of its own. It kinda was out there but really didn't get a lot of play. but then of course meyer addressed. He addressed to the media. He was kinda mumbling. Kind of you know he was contrite. He said he shouldn't have been put himself in that position. He kinda you know went to the excuse factor a little bit in terms of there's a group they want me to come over with they're going to say in one dance when you need to get people on the dance floor you know. Here's the thing you gotta be above it. I know it's not the same rules for everyone. Celebrity you just have to be above it. Any wasn't above it and i'll talk about the business side of it in a minute but listen many by weeks always scared me as a front office executive in the nfl as an agent when the guys played on thursday night. I worried about that because that's time to let go. You have no obligations until the next. Monday are off from thursday night. Basically until monday and people go different places now. Urban meyer to stayed around where it wasn't ohio. Worse got a long history and friends. Any ended up in that compromise physician and even took pictures kind of didn't seem to be shying away from that so it was a compromise position. It didn't make him look good. It reflects poorly on him. It reflects poorly more importantly on the organization and now there are stories out that he's lost locker room their own four. They're not doing well. But here's the thing. Now we get to my expertise. The business side. Urban meyer. As i see it didn't need the nfl. He didn't need to come to the jacksonville. Jaguars one of the worst teams in league. One of the worst franchises in the league but he did. And i think he had more leverage than the jaguars did i think as a first time. Nfl head coach. He probably got paid as mel as much as any longtime. Nfl coach may be safe for bella. Jack or p character tomlin. Who knows. But i'm sure he's making a ton of money. Maybe even ten months a year plus now for billionaire like shod connie.

Not even trying to tank hydraulic pet right right. So you're saying his college players go help him draft better. I think so. Because they didn't last as pastor. After i i agree i agree. I'm not sure that translates because holidays are great in the pros you know. What matt millen was that matt millen when he talked about. Nfl players on television. Sound like a genius and for.

"urban meyer" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Now he's the head coach in nfl team and he's made mistakes since then that we've talked about on the show with hiring the strength coach from iowa who was basically dismissed from the program or left a program because accusations accusations. Not quite or the rumored oklahoma drill with this site infraction. There have been things that he's messed up on. But it seems like the ohio state thing really has not stuck to him. And i just. I'm curious why you think that is it. Because he's a winner is that it's winter. Is that look at. What sucked aggressiion. When you do the comparison shopping really bad. What urban meyer did. But greg fianna wasn't sexy enough of a candidate if he had urban meyer success the vol's fan base would be all over while i think it's combination. He's a winner and he's no longer there like he's got he went away and he he evacuate supremacist. And he doesn't have to face any of the tough questions barely had to face any of those questions in the media and very quietly. I saw a report that the nfl is. It's funny that these quotes have come out because media. Availability for head coaches keeps getting more limited more limited. There used to be a weekly conference call with the head coach in which you would get very little but at least you could challenge a head coach. And now the nfl's protecting the head coaches in that regard to you. Might you would be excited of urban. Meyer was your head coach. I can swallow my morals a lot when it comes to winning and football. It's uncomfortable right but in professional sports doesn't matter you're going to have to see your process. Come up to a moral crossroads. I think i i want the university of miami to be a great program and be what it was in the early two thousands what it was in the nineties where it was in the eighty and ever would make that happen inside of two years. Yeah the university of miami just needs to do flat out better because we've had one coach that wasn't learning on the job and was mark and they got to an orange bowl and they mattered into november. They had an undefeated season. Jesse they beat notre dame the club notre dame that feels gratuitous and it was and i apologize that was very mean but i think the university of miami needs a saab getting on the. I saw this quote from coward. They need. stop hiring temple coaches. They've hired to ideas was a coach for fourteen days. I think at temple alcohol than obviously didn't go out. Well needs a sobbing and on the job training. But if i'm getting urban meyer or someone else that has a reputation that knows what they're doing when it comes to college football head coaching with some success. I'd probably lean there. Because i it's a florida thing and it's just awful the resume not just at ohio state. And that's the most recent thing but if you really look into what happened at florida and how they were aided. Reportedly it's crazy and miami can't have that heat on it. You can't do that. Miami's a program that is under a microscope. With all that stuff and urban meyer just everywhere he goes. He invites that stuff into it. So i would be a strong. No on urban meyer as much as i want the program to be good again as much as i would. I would not swallow my morals. In that instance i mean what if i told you three national championship. Bring him on herb. My guy i'll drive you to saint thomas..

I guess because he had once in atlanta a combination barbecue chinese food place abbey's house of ribs that went under and i think inflated the business dying as opposed to just person dying. You have the butcher going under speed under. I believe he lost like a big time lawsuit surrounding hepatitis c. But i i'm not going to venture into those waters because my the butcher facts have very clearly been wrongness This shows back off so delay the fifty dollars down. I gotta go to the atm. Because that's strictly cash dealer or find bucket does not take van mo so you guys allow the atm to choose your your dollars. Like they'll choose fifties every time we get two hundred dollars out. They're going to give you four fifties which is problematic. I'd rather have ten ten twenty s. I like the option. I certainly love having the option choosy. Yes i like choosing. I haven't been to an atm and possibly eight years. Kids laugh at me that carry around money still. Is that a thing that you know. Is that an old person thing. Yes like every time. I find a few bucks laying around. I immediately save it. I'm like oh my god. This is so valuable for the next time. I i need to tip the sky cab. I had a good at the start of the pandemic. i had a good eighteen month. Run where i was not using. Atm's at all pretty much cashless in apple. Pay is so easy but you start paying contractors when he moved into a new house and you realize cash is still very much gang. You want a fun game and you teach your kids how to save some money as well every time you get a five dollar bill. Put it away. That's what i've been doing so you start searching for five dollar bills you actually want them so. No one can use five dollar bills in my house anytime. Someone has a five dollar bill. We put it into a into a jar and then every month they bring that jar to a to a bank. And i put it away. And i'm gonna show the kids how much that money's going to grow over time if i don't spend it. I which i might hawaii chasing at midnight. I did do the thing where i save coins for very long time and i mean a lot of them. I mean hundreds and hundreds of dollars by taking it to bank of america. You have to wait a little bit kind of have to trust them. Which is a dangerous game missing out. There's nothing like rolling your own coins. Lots yeah i love it. You don't have to rolling your own coins though. Yeah something else. It's a painstaking process. Yeah and coins are so dirty. Billy can i call. Yeah was the last time you rolled up your going so come on get out of here. You think that. I'm above rolling coins. Like that's what you're gonna call me out on. I'm cheap. I will roll my own coins. If i take it to coin star. It's gonna take like forty seven percent of my coins. I'm not gonna do that kidding. Me no move. You cannot take it to coins. You seem upset at me and you and you should be. You're right any saved a penny earned gods and fifty those pennies boom roll. 'em up did you guys see Schefters report that Urban meyer's commented on the usc job. He said he is not interested. There's no chance i'm here. And i'm committed to trying to build this organization.

I'm not going to be the alabama head coach. no one's buying that right with our reminder. He could be telling the truth he could have zero interest in it but he is not someone who you can believe any credible thing that he did no visa way to go here as well. What else is he going to say. He's employed by the jaguars. I mean we're already having these rumors swirl around him two weeks into a regular season that by all reports is off to a pretty rocky start. Yeah he's not gonna come out and say yes. I'm very interested. He benefits from having his name associated with that. Somehow those usc by the way it's mutual benefit with his leak. Sodas every other college football coach. He's doing well right now. They're all gonna get massive extensions in the next few months because there they're gonna say oh crap. The job is open. And i guarantee you matt campbell. He's buying a big second house somewhere in florida. This off season. There is a report that penn state head coach. James franklin is indeed interested in that job. I mean it's a great job. It's usc penn state's a better job than usc. I don't know i don't think so. I just alumni base in boosters because man penn state is a very powerful powerful program. The big ten people sleep on them but they are the number one revenue generator when it comes to conference football. I think it's close. I think penn state's definitely one of the few big ten programs that comes close to usc. But i still think. Usc being in la. If usc team in the pack twelve can make the playoffs once or twice. I think you have done a really good job in recruiting at usc. I think is still a lot easier than penn.

Some Jaguars Players 'Aren't Thrilled' With Urban Meyer, NFL Analyst Says
"How some of the players are sick of urban Meyer. We've already heard the stories about how urban Meyer thinks he's back at Ohio State. He thinks he's back at Florida. He's trying to remind the players. Hey, you need to hydrate. I don't know. Maybe he'll tell them, uh, you know, maybe wash your hands when you finish using the restroom. Maybe that's going to come next. Maybe he'll tell them Cover your mouth your nose when you sneeze. I don't know. We have people in 2021 who just think germs don't spread, but that's besides the point. The fact is, the Jaguars are trash. Hopefully, Trevor Lawrence can help dig them out before urban Meyer decides the bail. You

"Here's another story. I would like you to know girls. Hockey is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Over the past decade girls and women's hockey participation has grown by thirty four percent globally at the senior international level the us women currently sit atop the throne. They will be seeking their six straight gold medal. When the i h f women's world championships. Beginning calgary on friday but in spite of that sustained success the us women are still fighting for respect off the ice even from within their own federation since there are no professional leagues in north america. That pay women hockey players a living wage tournaments. The world's and the olympics made everything to players on the women's national team in two thousand seventeen. The us women under guidance of a high powered law firm battled with usa hockey for fair pay and more equitable treatment. The women threatened to sit out. The twenty worlds as negotiations got tents that resulted in a landmark deal that brought significant improvements the same travel accommodations guess policies and insurance coverage is men's team. More importantly for the first time national team members were paid a living wage so that training and chasing dreams no longer had to be a financial burden that deal expired this year and once again the sides went to the negotiating table while the women were hoping to build on the momentum from the last contract the players were left feeling unsatisfied. These settled on a one year deal a byproduct of the pandemic the way to see what the economic picture looks like next summer. Meanwhile at worlds the treatments still isn't the same. The i h f handbook calls for the men to be put up in better hotels for the men to have more tickets for their locker rooms to be more spacious. Even the men's metals are bigger.

"urban meyer" Discussed on ESPN Daily
"He can be successful. That to me is going to be the biggest reason that urban meyer succeeds or fails. So what do we know about urban. Meyer's game plan for the jaguars this season. Is he trying to be too cute. He made very clear that he just wants things to be faster. Just disappointed all like slow offenses. And i told you i. I thought the third quarter was better which just temple getting up the landscaping snap the ball and so far he's got he's got a cast around him. I think brian schottenheimer will darn bubble Are too often of minded coaches. That will be very good for him when he says he wants things to be faster. He doesn't want this to be a an offense chunks chugs along. I don't want to be one of those slow wallowing offenses and we'll get that fixed. So what do we expect. Some of what we saw from urban meyer in college but what we saw from him at ohio state for instance was a little different and more progressive than it was at florida if he continues to make those progressions than i think what we'll see in the. Nfl actually could work. But of course it doesn't matter how fast urban meyer runs his offense or who's even starting for the jaguars one of the keys to success for the quarterback is going to be protection solid protection from the line. So have the jags. Look there. that's right. They've got a way to go. This team in general has a way to go. there is a reason why a team picks first overall. and you know dave caldwell the former. Gm actually did do a nice job of beginning to assemble that talent. Getting the salary cap in shape he put together caldwell a an organization that urban meyer was willing to enter in that in itself. I think shows you that this is a team that that is at least on the brink of making a move toward successful sting. They still need help with protection for sure. They basically need help in every single unit to be completely honest except for quarterback but they at least have some top end talent that will at least put them on a decent path in division though. By the way that's going to take some time to to maybe ascend to the top of right. You said that very important word time. We're kind of time. Line is ownership on with urban meyer. We're kind of leash. Is he gonna get. He will get enough of leash from ownership. This ship is very patient. they were patient with doug marrone and probably kept him on a year or two too long so it is a patient ownership group but urban is not a patient person. We've said it already when it comes to florida or ohio state. My question is not whether the the organization will be patient with urban. It's whether he'll be patient with the process and that to me we can all say he will but history says he won't and quite honestly. I will believe it when i see it. And then there's the tim tebow of it all which even though he was cut yesterday i think is still interesting in what it says about urban meyer transition into the nfl. Because when the jaguars signed the thirty four year old to play tight end may despite not playing in games in twenty twelve and never catching an nfl pass. You reported that not. Everyone in the organization was thrilled with the signing. What was going on inside the building. Well emily the interesting part of this. Was that in fact. You're right that i did report. That assistant coaches were unhappy. And some of them did voice to urban meyer. That they weren't into it the times got a little bit heated in terms of just the debate about signing him urban though felt like he wanted to add as a piece to help bring his culture an understanding of his way to to the locker room and ultimately urban head coach and these assistance that i've spoken to had made clear. It's also not that big of a deal when you sleep on it and you realize it's likely that he's not going to make it. He's not gonna wind up on the fifty three man roster that it's really not worth the fight. It's a matter of saving the bullet and really understanding that you gotta pick your battles and in this case those assistance. We're proven right that this was something that urban wanted to do. And ultimately here we are and he's he's not going to be a part of the fifty three man roster right because now obviously t boz performance in camp in the first preseason game was underwhelming and leading him to being cut yesterday and talked earlier about the trap that urban meyer could fall into of quote being too cute does not signing fall into that category and that move cost urban meyer any credibility within the organization so i go back and forth with it. Part of me wants to say yeah. It was cute. It was kind of a dumb move that you knew the inevitable outcome and those assistant coaches made that clear. The other part of me says is it really that big of a deal when you have a ninety man roster generally speaking a lot of teams know that. They're signing for instance. A camp arm quarterback just to to be there to throw passes knowing that he's not gonna make the team so isn't that big of a deal to have him there. Maybe not generally speaking. I think it upsets people when you say well he. He didn't deserve the opportunity to try out as a tight end. And maybe not. But there are instances all the time. We're nfl head coaches get new gigs and bring on familiar faces and you know this. One definitely doesn't necessarily feel like he had a legitimate chance. But at the same time you know head coaches try to have their stamp. In many other. Instances so i'm not going to be too hard on urban in this case so is like nearly three months with the team. What did tim tebow do. Yes i mean. That's that's i guess. That's the not enough to have any kind of impact. Urban meyer said that yes. He was well liked in the locker room. But this is the nfl. And i think that that might be the one thing that urban probably needs to realize that tim tebow was a really good raw leader in college in the nfl. Rah doesn't really cut it. it is. It is a different dynamic when it comes to leadership in the nfl. Tim tebow while a great leader in the college game was not necessarily the same in the pro game. I understand that. Tim tebow fans want to feel otherwise. And we'll make that argument. But i can tell you as someone who's very close to the situation it's not the case. Urban is going to have to realize that. Nfl leadership is very different than college. Leadership sa- jacksonville. They've been an nfl purgatory for what seems like forever. They've played in and flirted with london a few times. They did have that random. Afc championship appearance in two thousand seventeen. But other than that. They haven't made the playoffs. Since two thousand seven what do you make of the jaguars heading into the season. Do their hopes lie. Solely with trevor lawrence. Or is it something else. I would say that their hopes absolutely are all about trevor lawrence success and it be about urban meyer to in the in the program that he puts together for sure. But it's going to live or die by trevor lawrence and that team for instance that you mentioned that made it to the afc championship game. That team had a lot of defensive talent.
"urban meyer" Discussed on ESPN Daily
"What else does he bring to the team. I think it matters that he is the type of guy who's an overachiever. I i know that urban meyer appreciates that and and in general gardner is a very likable guy. Beyond that look. They took trevor lawrence number one overall. Not merely because he was the best prospect. That really we've seen in some time but also because the jaguars know that they need a quarterback minhsiu magic. While enjoyable was also much short-lived. I mean usually when we call something magical when it when it comes to you know this moment in a career of nfl player it is because it is a moment and garner. I can be a solid backup in the nfl for a long time and might even get a shot as the starter at some other point. It's very clear organizationally that that to win a championship. They felt like they needed someone other than should these two guys. They want the same thing they both want to be a starter and we know that they namic in a quarterback room can sometimes be complicated. What are you hearing about how they're handling this and what their relationship is like well again. It's kind of like the way that that i would describe. Urban meyer's approach to making trevor lawrence earned the job here gardner saying the very colorful ways in which he plans To continue to compete for the starting job. That's like when cortez landed in barracuda's a six hundred is trying to take the asset empire. You know what he said. He's burned the boats. Said we're going back on their boats. You know what i'm saying. So that's kind of a me. Pretty much of her that story but ultimately though to knows the trevor lawrence was the number one overall pick in the good news is the relationship in fines and great is great. His great trevor's awesome super. Hambo coming in here right work right. Learn it's been a lot of fun working with him and it's it is the type of scenario. Where while gardner probably wishes. He could have had another shot. The writing is on the wall for him. He knows that he can earn a job somewhere else by being a good solid quarterback trevor. Meanwhile is while. I mentioned the idea. I've been walking into the building in. This presidential way has also walked into the locker room like a rookie understanding yes to earn it. Not walking in there you know if he had done the same thing in the locker room that he did in the building that day walking office instead walking locker it probably would have felt disingenuous but trevor being the leader that he is on the field understands that he's doing what urban wants him to do which is earn it and I think that as a result of that he's he's i guess. Making the locker room support him in so far. He has gotten that support. Okay so trevor. Does the right things. He says the right things he knows when to knock on people's doors and when not to. Is there anything. this guy does wrong. No there's not. I mean that's the beauty of trevor lawrence like he. I mean if you think about it really in the past several months we've stopped generally talking about trevor lawrence. This is one of the few times. I feel like i've really discussed him in depth and and he is such a massive prospect. I think the reason for that is because he is so. Let's call it boring. it's he. He is handling things the way that most organizations want a rookie to do it and that is to lay low and just come the type of player that the world expects him to be after the break. I wanna have two more about urban meyer the first year head. Coach this jacksonville team. And how he's handling the transition from the college level to the pro game with no fees or minimums on checking and savings accounts banking with capital. One is like the easiest decision in the history of decisions kind like choosing the listen to another episode of your favorite podcast with our top rated app. You can deposit checks and transfer money anytime anywhere making capital one and even easier decision. That is banking reimagined. What's in your wallet. Terms apply capital one. Na member fdic so jeff urban meyer's in his first season as nfl coach and there was a lot of skepticism on how this was all going to work out. I mean this is a man who twice retired from college. Coaching citing health and walked away from florida. Ohio state with. Lingering controversies at both sites and this very specific job. He took the jaguars they posted losing seasons in nine the last ten years and urban meyer. He's not used to stomaching results like that. He's never posted a losing season across four stops in seventeen years of college football. So all of that said how this experiment going so far it. you know. it's funny. It's i want to say that the experiment is is going fine but let's be honest. It hasn't been smooth. There have been missteps already. In just a brief period go back to march when urban meyer had hired controversial assistant coach in iowa strength. Chris doyle. I have known chris for close to twenty years. Our relationship goes back to when i was in utah and he was the number one strength coach. And i've known him. I've studied him We've had a relationship. I venit them thoroughly. Allow with our general manager and owner feel great about the higher He was brought on to be the director of sports performance with jacksonville and very quickly mounting pressure starting to point out doyle was dismissed from the university of iowa after being accused of making racial remarks allegations that he denied but ultimately allegations that led to his departure from iowa. Was these moments that you felt like. Wow urban doesn't understand the magnitude of every decision in the nfl. The jaguars director of sports. Performance chris doyle resigned late friday night just hours after the organization was criticized for the higher by the fritz pollard. Alliance doyle you know the story. Who was the former strength coach at iowa. He was accused of making racist remarks and bullying players while he was there. It's just something that when you make those decisions in college sometimes it can get swept aside when you make them in the nfl. That doesn't go away very easily. But i mean it wasn't just that chris doyle hiring right he also got two hundred thousand dollar fine for a fractions again the tibo signing which we'll get to. What do people around the nfl say about him. Is it just him adjusting to the nfl game or something more well. It's really tricky. Whenever a college coach of of top pedigree comes into the nfl. Because i'll have conversations with a lot of my sources that work in the nfl who they roll. There is whenever a college coach gets to the nfl. They say you know cool show us. This is the big boy league. Now there's a lot of people that That i talk to regularly who who expect urban meyer to fail in the nfl. I think that urban is different than some of the other coaches that have come before him in terms of his ability to time it right with the way that the offenses are heading in the nfl. But we can't dismiss the way. It went for nick saban and for chip kelly and even for going way back to like steve spurrier and the thing is all of the reasons that those guys failed was because they got to the nfl and it wasn't the onfield stuff. It was all the off field stuff. It was nick sabin. Basically being like wait. I can't i get one first round pick a year in college. I can get twenty first round pick a year. It's chip kelly treating players like he's still also talking to eighteen year olds in college if urban gets too cute. I think he'll fail for college. Coach adjusts the nfl. I think.
Urban Meyer: Cutting Tim Tebow was 'right thing' for Jaguars to do
"Was announced earlier today. Tim tebow former quarterback trying to be a tight end for the jacksonville. Jaguars was released by the team. He had one. He had one game under his belt with the jaguars. It was a preseason game over the weekend. It did not go that well for tim tebow thus he was released earlier today by the
NFL Fines Jaguars, Cowboys, 49ers for OTA Violations
"Or their O t a practice. What is that deal? I don't know. The story does not explain what's going on the Jaguars 49 years and Cowboys have all been fined. For organized team activity violations OTAs or the voluntary practices that we just had, which a lot of teams canceled. The Cowboys fined $100,000 Mike McCarthy was flying $50,000 Have you told me Mike McCarthy messed up? I believe you Okay, I believe you, but they practice in their fake punch a lot or something. But the school fig podcast. Come on. It doesn't It doesn't specifically say what they what they did wrong. Cowboys ordered to forfeit one Oh to practice during the first week of the 2022 off season, the Jags and Urban Meyer. Yeah, you got to clean it up because his penalties were more severe. Jags fined 200,000 Urban Meyer fined 100,000. They were ordered to forfeit to practices. Well, they were probably in full pads for urban's first Go came in. Line them up. Yeah. Oklahoma drill.

We look forward to the start of training camp later this month and blah, blah,
Urban Meyer Envisions Utilizing Tim Tebow in Taysom Hill-Like Role
"Got tim t we got. We got number one. Pick in the draft playing quarterback. We got a team. That was one in fifteen a year ago. And now we're bringing it in ten tibo to run a taste him hill style package. Chris canty what do you think of that. I don't like it g. I gotta be honest with you. I mean we've seen him he'll be able to do a lot of things in the nfl. You can throw it can catch. We hadn't seen him to be able to do that at a high level at least not enough to warrant him being able to make a return after a six year absence from the sport so i just think it's a long shot in terms of being a contributor on the field with the jacksonville jaguars and if he's not going to be somebody that's a productive player. I don't think it's worth the distraction again. This is another one of those moves. This offseason got a lot of those guys in that. Jacksonville jaguars locker room looking at herbert. Meyer sideways i going out there and trying to sign. I will strength coach. Chris doyle to be your head or strength conditioning. After what happened with his tenure there and now with bringing it over i just. It's a move that reeks of privilege. And it's a move that could undermine the credibility of your head coach moving
Is Urban Meyer Taking a Gamble With Tebow?
"The biggest story in the nfl right now. is tim. Tebow and the jacksonville. Jaguars on friday afternoon. The jaguars sign boat to a one year. Nine hundred fifty thousand dollar minimum deal as a tight end. His jersey makes up the top five selling items on the nfl shop dot com store. Now figure that out and to me urban meyer's really running the risk of losing his locker room here because if you talk to people inside the league if you talk to executives and other coaches there's a lot of genuine skepticism over urban meyer becoming. Nfl head coach generally. And there's a sense that it's four more likely that he flames out and never wins a playoff game than it is that he winds up winning a super bowl when this experiment bringing in tim tebow not necessarily even as a quarterback you have trevor lawrence. They're bringing tim tebow into that locker room in two thousand and twenty one and having him sing for his supper is a tight end. There's a belief that meyer runs the chance inside the league of losing his locker room before this season even begins
SEC Distributes $23 Million to Each Member School to Offset COVID-19 Losses
"A statement. Not long afterwards saying i want to thank the jaguars for the opportunity to compete an earned the chance to be part of this team. I know it will be a challenge but it is a challenge i embrace. I am dedicated to taking the direction of our coaching staff and learning from my teammates. I appreciate everyone's support. Is i embark on this new journey. So the story coming out and we will be obviously talking about it this afternoon. We begin with mike dirocco. Who's been covering the story all day and then some for espn. Mike thank you very much. It's great to have you on. And i'm just gonna kick my feet up on the desk and listen to how the day begun in what has happened since then good afternoon. Thanks for having me Yeah i mean we had people on the field for the first time today signed this morning and out there wearing number eighty five and working out at tight end. Obviously this is just the offseason conditioning face to the off program next week. They start organized team activities on monday. That's what we'll kind of the whole team together throwing. Footballs and around getting a chance to see. What the former heisman trophy winner looks like it. Quarter at Tight end whether he's gonna be doing some blocking drills running around a chance to find the tibo tight end could've been well. Let's let's talk about What the club has said.

Why Would Jaguars Sign Tim Tebow?
"We are back final hour. It's been a fun show. We appreciate you being here. A lot of conversation with my Mike smith earlier. We also talked to dennis dodd. Another conversation predictably has been tim. Tebow we've given you a lot of reaction on that in the mike cannon bom from espn former gm jets dolphins. He's been here a couple of times. He had this to say earlier today. On keyshawn jay will and zubin about understanding the signing. I don't like it. I just don't see the upside in this move. He's thirty four years old. He would be a backup. I just don't know of thirty four year old players that can come in and be back place special teams and you're taking away a roster spot from hopefully a young developmental player that could grow with a young nucleus obviously led by trevor lawrence. And to me this is probably through the lens of urban. Meyer saying a decade. And a half ago tim tiba was the most competitive guy i've ever been around and he can help set the culture. If i was in that building what i would be pushing back saying coach. That may be true but in the nfl as you well know. Players needs to be led by players. They believed can take them to where they wanna go and as a backup tight end. I just don't think tim tebow would have that same credibility as he wants dave when he was the starting quarterback in florida. He also questioned whether tibo could even makes a team. I just don't see how he makes the team or urban and he's a really good coach he he's been historically great college but i just don't know he has to earn a spot and he's given a spot. That's gonna cause a big problem because players weren't have a chance to win and again to me just putting on my lens of a general manager and roster construction if you're not a starter in the nfl with only forty six players dressing you have to play special teams so my question. is tim. tibor thirty four years old going to cover cover kicks that remains to be seen. Now if he doesn't earn it does a totally different discussion. But i don't think you could sign him and say hey. He definitely has a spot on this team.
Jacksonville Jaguars Expected to Sign Tim Tebow as TE
"This is austin lane. He's a former. Nfl tight end the host of action. Sports jacks on. Espn radio he was joining. He was joining freddie and fitzsimmons about whether tibo is going to be jacksonville simply for his leadership. The whole narrative that tim tibo coming to jacksonville. Be an urban meyer guy and helping that locker room presence. i think it's baloney. I'm not buying into that narrative because what what guys look for in terms of leadership and guys buy into his guys that have had except you know leaders guys that you can say this guy the baller. I gotta follow him and watch. How does now. I've talked to many times. Tim is a fantastic guy. But i think the whole narrative of you're going to bring him in because he's a great locker room guys all right. Great there's there's tons of great locker got. There's tons of great teammates just like any locker. Rooms made up of all types of people. So i'm not buying that austin lane also talked about. What exactly will tibo be doing assuming. He makes the team the whole narrative. That tim tebow coming to jackson i understand that he knows urban meyer. They have a great relationship. I guess you know. Urban meyer bought a house. experts week. Sent tibo so even if he makes the team. That's going to be great e hollywood. Tv show Urban meyer tim hero next door. It's gonna be fantastic. It's gonna do all the rating. But i do think this. This is urban meyer first year and then i saw and you know he's bringing his guys in. I understand all that. But what earn myers gotta realize. Real quick is that. You can't take anything if tim people is going to make. This team is because tim tebow has earned a spot. There are no you know there is no. I like this guy lot. Let's give him a spot. That doesn't work like that players not locking them. We'll see through that day one so two hundred two things are going to happen either. Tim tebow is not the tight end which we don't think he is and i'll be honest. I'm kind of in that boat or tim. Tebow is a tight end. And he earns his spot and he gets that roster spot and that's it was not good enough during the roster spot. He's not gonna get it. Because of urban meyer gives him that spot. He's gonna lose that locker room in a heartbeat.

Yeah, Charlie Strong. How about that, Terry? Charlie really early. You know, he is a national champion. Now. He was just crowned on Monday night. He was part of Alabama's staff as an analyst this year, and it looks like he is accepted a new job. He is going to be from what I hear. I thought he was going to go back to, uh uh, sound like he was gonna go back to Cali or stay in college but is agreed to be the linebackers coach with Urban Meyer for the Jacksonville JAG wires. So there you have it, Terry. You know there was a good There's a funny story last they worked together years ago. They worked together at Florida. Yes, he was. He was Urban's defensive coordinator for him at Florida. There was a story last week going into the national championship. I actually going to the semifinals, where Maria Taylor went and talked to the wives of all four of of the coaches. And Nick Saban's wife's. The question was about. You know something about somebody on staff that they're grateful for something, and she mentioned Charlie strong, and they said Why? She said, Because I feel sorry for him, and they're like, OK, You gotta explain that now, Charlie Strong was evidently the person that Nick Saban when he was in quarantine for covert 19. He was the go between between the staff and saving. Can you imagine being that guy? Holy cow. Oh, my So, Yeah, So Charlie is pressure. The former Louisville, Texas and South Florida coach is joining Urban Meyer's staff in Jacksonville. And again, it sounds like the linebackers coach. Originally there was some talk about defensive coordinator but sounds like he's gonna be the linebackers coach there, uh, in Jacksonville. Louisville quarterback coach Frank Pontes is on the move. He is headed to Back to Appalachian State where he came from with Scott Satterfield. He will be the new offensive coordinator at AP State that made that announcement official just about an hour or so ago. And Wandell Robinson, the 2000 and 18 it Kentucky. Mr Football.

"And then you get the boot and they replaced you with somebody else who had a job, and it's a wash rents Repeat. So in the case of urban Meyer, I'm not going to sit here and say, Oh, yeah, Urban Meyer is he's going to the Super Bowl with this team and three or four years. I'm not saying all of that. I think they'll work out. The team will get better. This is the fax this Jacksonville Jaguars team. They probably would have gotten better with anybody you put in that situation. Unless I pulled in a toddler to run this team to run this organization, you gotta be a complete clown or a fool to screw this up. With the assets that the Jaguars have to get Trevor Laurence Toe have that cap space tow have the draft picks to have the young talent that's already you have to be a clown to screw it up. There's nothing infallible Nothing You can always stumble here an injury here that that's true, But all things considered. This is a winning situation for whatever coach would have gotten the job. Rico's calling up from Richmond, Rico, you want CBS Sports radio? Appreciate taking the call, but look, just biggest source. Sweet, simple. I mean Overmyer over there. I mean, sure, he's gonna make the new He's gonna bring all the old James, though. Florida Gator fans back here, reunite them against in Jacksonville is not that far of a drive anyway, right, right, but I mean, it's all cool and everything like that. But I obviously feel like you know, it could only be exist, said if he brings on the people that he really wants, which is like, you know, the offensive coordinator in the defense of Cornet and his obviously You know, they have a lot of good defense of stars that they had. And they sell, you know, saw them off and made all these like Jack sticks, which is awesome, But you know, it just it all depends on the place styles and play calling because you know, the general manager is going to get the people that want urban Meyer. Well, Obviously, ever minds will be predominantly making all the Meghan all the decisions, but That's Steve. All the right pieces made together, you know, And I say maybe two or three years. I mean, 79. That's a great expectations because you got the colt in that division has gotta awesome defense. You got the Titans with their Henry and Tannehill. I mean, when I ain't gonna talk about Houston, their big old That's the big explosion right there. But Mm. Big old explosion. OK, That's yeah, they want for the city of Houston. Don't feel sorry for this. Don't feel sorry for the city, Rico. But let me let me respond to what you just said. And thank you so much for calling from Richmond. Shot outside. Everybody from short pump toe. Shaka bottom. I appreciate y'all. Listen. It Zob Venus. He's going to have to bring in some coordinators. I'm going to gather Urban Meyer is going to be able to have the say so, especially for an interim general manager. Right now in Jacksonville. He's gonna have he's going to be able to call his shot. He's gonna be able to pick and choose who he wants to to run the offense and the defense and he's obviously going to oversee it all. Sound like he's gonna bring back Charlie Strong. You know, he ain't bringing him in. He's going to go ahead and probably hire someone. On both sides of the football who have NFL experience. And I think this is this is a highly coveted job. That's why his ass got it. That's why I think it will work out. Nothing is foolproof. Nothing is guaranteed. We all know that there is not a thing guaranteed in life. The old joke, nothing guaranteed death and taxes. So it's not to say that Jacksonville's will go out there. And just when And I don't know about a seven and nine dammit! They maybe seven and on and a couple of years, they maybe 18 8, maybe nine and seven. They might be in the playoffs in two years. You can't just go ahead and judge everybody right out the gate. Justin Herbert was kicking ass this year, he did make the playoffs. So it's kind of a lower he started what nine games and They almost got there shout outs to a Ryan Fitzpatrick for doing his part as well. Not everybody's getting thrown into the fire and working out right away. Let's see what trouble Lawrence Conduce. We have more calls on the line. I will continue to take them. Do you think Urban Meyer will work out in Jacksonville? I think he will. I'm not saying they're going to go win a Super Bowl in four or five years, but I think they got nowhere to go but up. They got everything that you would want for team that's gonna rebuild that just won one game. 855 to 1 to four. CBS. You're listening to the J. R sport. Brief show you're listening to CBS Sports Radio. Jim Room's got opinions Big shout out to Cleveland and Cleveland on Lee because C town you and I were the only ones who believe the only ones who believed that you could go down, in fact would go down. To Pittsburgh and do what you did. And don't make this about the Steelers slumping. It's about the Browns quote. The Browns is the Browns and they're in the playoffs, and you can apologize to all.

"To leave those off. Sorry. I just took a phone call from somebody said I'm on Polaris and I'm right across from the Red Lobster. It's completely open right now. What I don't know if this guy's trolling me, but he said, I just drove past it. He goes, It's open. I swear. We were just like it was probably a week and a half of what? I was always a refurbishing the building. Maybe they were. Maybe they were, but, man, I'm telling you, the sign was off of the building. Maybe they were redoing the sign or something. And if that is the case, I stand corrected. I'm very sorry I haven't been. You know, I haven't been over there. It's been a week and a half, two weeks, but I swear it was seeing him. Now watch. Here comes the phone calls. Well, I could be wrong. And if you know what Quite frankly, if I'm wrong, I'm happy that I'm wrong. But I swear a couple of weeks ago we my wife was with me. Hand to God and I We were like what? Like what happened. This place is always busy. It's right next to Olive Garden. Yes, Sex second call these like you're talking about the one on Polaris. Now down by sank us, right? Yeah. I mean, they just want the parking lots completely full. The restaurants buzzing. I'm so I don't understand what just happened. Wasting good thing, though, right? It is a good thing like I was just saying while you were talking to them on the on the phone, I was just my wife was with me even and it's did you both go all that's that's exactly. That's what we did that we did that whole conversation. We're like what like that place is always crowded. What happened? Maybe something happened where they were redoing something or so I don't know. But I can tell you we went to the olive garden, which was next door. We ended up going there that day because we were contemplating. On the Red Lobster. There you know, wasn't during unlimited shrimp, but we were still considering going so the Wagyu bacon cheeseburger, they've added Um, the petty of Wagyu beef. It's been grilled and topped with white Cheddar, crispy bacon strips lettuce, tomato And it's a brio. Sh bun that they're using for that. Yes, please. And then you know you had to choose a side or whatever with it. Is that what it is? You're still getting all the calls saying heads open, and I just said that he ate their Sunday evening. Damn, I feel I don't know. What has happened to you? It's like the world was playing a trick mean prank on your Blazers mean and I wasn't having a senior moment cause my wife was with me and she's younger than me. So I can't even blame it on his eyes by myself and You notice when the sign is not on the side of the building, you know what I mean? Like the big the Red Lobster the okay then Also, they added bacon wrapped sea scallops. Yeah. There we are. I'll lead him out of house and home. That's they better not do unlimited with that. Oh, no, Not with me. Not with me. No, they'll be in big trouble if they do that, so anyway, those air a couple the two new menu items. Well, I'm glad people are letting us know that they in fact are open. But I Don't get it. But again, I have been down there a week and a half or so. So it looks like the I want to get to this and then also what I just saw when I walked back in the office during last break the JAG wires. Um did Jackie Uars Are planning to meet with Urban Meyer in this head coaching vacancy, so we talked about it for a little bit. It's been kind of bouncing around, but it looks like they're planning to meet with him, it says on Friday, so today at some point, right They were going to be meeting with him. Um, no deal is eminent. And it says they've already interviewed a couple of other different people. But that urban Meyer is talking to him. You know, I know he was asking for 12 million bucks. And remember, we started looking around. And if you look around the league that would be right to any Bella check makes a little bit more than that. I think he makes like 12.9 or something along those a When you think about what Belichick has done in New England, and then urban's coming in asking for that, right off the top of the mean right at the time. There's Where do you go from there? But I guess it depends on how bad they want him 12 million bucks. Yeah, there's supposed to interview the defensive coordinator for San Francisco tomorrow. So they there's they're checking out. All kinds of stuff. I just I still just don't see it. I don't see. Why would you want the headache of rebuilding that dumpster? Fire down there? We've talked about this to how much? How much will he be able to? Bring in his coaching style. We know how well it works in college football in Ohio as a as in Ohio State. We know how well worked in Florida. Hell Everywhere He's been. We know how well it works. Urban Meyer's a winner, But will it work in the NFL? Can you Can you get these guys to buy in? I mean, there's there. There is something to be said for a Mike Tomlin or for a Bill Belichick or, you know, just the short list of very successful coach Pete Carroll. Pete Carroll did it. I mean, he went from college football, and the Seahawks have been very successful. So I would say there'd be a page or two out of his playbook if urban round if he starts having any trouble anyway. I mean, you would think he would examine what he was doing what he's been doing in Seattle. See how that works, and again, I mean, it's the obvious. I was like, how can he get that to translate? But if there's somebody who could do it, I would think you would think that it would be him. Hey, the thing that I saw when I walked back real quick in the office, Josh was It's being discussed. I think you probably even have it on. Or maybe you didn't in there that on ESPN they were talking about Should this game happened on Sunday night between the Steelers and the Browns? Because your is it your state your safety? I'm not sure. Ronnie Harrison. Starting safety. He's out job. Antonio are Pro Bowl left guard. He's out, coach. Our head coach is out. We have no idea what's gonna happen with Denzel Award who's fantastic cornerback for there's Where do you draw the line as a team and I'm being completely honest, and by the way, they just now were able to open the facility late this afternoon. They have not practiced all week. Baker Mayfield in the year 2021 Baker Mayfield's practice one time. So where do they draw the line? Then to say? Okay. You're missing X amount of players. We can go ahead and postpone it. It doesn't matter unless it was Patrick Mahomes or Aaron Rodgers. They wouldn't do it Be serious. I know. I know. You kind of are. I'm half serious. But I mean, the Steelers are involved, too. I mean, They really can't consult the Steelers. I guess in this that wouldn't be. You probably know sympathy anyway, because they didn't get a bye week all year because of how I mean, you do remember that? I mean, we got the hell beat out of us playing just boom, boom, boom like that, Um, but, you know, I don't know. I just I know your thoughts on it, and your list continues to grow in it just as a Steeler and I've been waiting on this for 18 years and it's like we get to go in it, you know? Tied with one leg and one arm behind her back. It stinks. I'm going on record as saying. I think any of the Steeler players, including Tomlin, the coaching staff, they would all say, I bet you If they were left. They want to beat the best. They want to beat what Cleveland can bring as the best Not you don't want to beat some abbreviated version of Cleveland cause it's not the same. I know in the way that it will be recorded in history that you know If there's a wind from the steel, it's going toe will have an ass tricks whether they wanted to have one or not, And I got to say is the Steeler fan I wanna beat..
