Maybe he's only seen the Utah rental version, so did not connect the reference.

If he's the next Urban it will be year 2 when they make a run.

I probably didn't even see the VidAngel version. Sorry. I was just taken aback a bit by the statement, not thinking it was an R to be N'd.

What a hire.. No longer content with letting the SEC get whomever they want by paying $4 million salaries to anyone and everyone, it would appear that the Big Ten is finally--and in a much smarter way--spending some of their B1G TV money procuring excellent coaches.

ETA: In the past two years, the B1G added Jim Harbaugh, James Franklin, Lovie Smith, Jeff Brohm, P.J. Fleck, D.J. Durkin, Mike Riley, Paul Chryst, Chris Ash.. to go along with Urban, Dantonio, Pat Fitzgerald. The only coach in the entire conference who might not be a great fit is IU and Tom Allen, and even he could be solid too. (I also think Iowa could maybe do better than Ferentz... but maybe not?) Maybe all those guys don't work out.. and some of them could ultimately leave for better jobs. For now, though, that looks to be a cadre of quality up-and-coming coaches in the same conference.)

Then again, here we are... January 8, 2017, and the championship game tomorrow still runs through the Southeast as it has in every season for the past 11 years save for 2014.
Kinda feel bad for those coaches. Some of them could put the best product their school has had in years and they will still be fired in 3-5 years because they will only make 1 or 2 bowl games in that time and never be close to competing for a B1G championship.

Oh, wait. This is win d. So you are talking about the University of Wyoming. OK.

Sorry wind, that Udub doesn't qualify as a game of note for a P5 team yet. But with the fall Oregon took last year, not sure they should qualify as a P5 team either.

You can have a plummet one year and then be better the next year with a whole new staff, the old players, and a sketchy recruiting season right guys?... guys?...

In all seriousness the O-Line should be decent this year, Crosby comes back, Freeman comes back, and Carrington is back. True Freshman QB was good last year, hopefully will take some strides forward. I'm hoping for bowl eligibility and a better defense (getting worse would be pretty difficult at this point).
