    I really believe that it is spot on! He is trying to get fired so he can go to USC

    They'd be extremely dumb to hire a guy who compiled an 83-9 record at Ohio St with a national championship. Alabama was so dumb to hire Nick Saban after things didn't work out at Miami.

    I wouldn’t compare him to Saban though, but I definitely think he’s going there, USC may be to far gone for him to turn around in a year or two so if he does go there I can’t see him sticking around long if he doesn’t develop a sudden illness and retire before Jacksonville fires him then he will probably use that to get out of USC down the road.

    I would compare him to Saban. Urban is the clear #2 behind Saban in the BCS/playoff eras. 3 championships, countless top 5 finishes and he's won big at two P5 schools.Saban was highly successful at LSU and Alabama. Urban was highly successful at UF and Ohio St. Both were in over their heads in the NFL. USC has struggled for some time, but they haven't had a capable coach since Pete Carrol. Would I expect Urban to transform USC into a playoff contender year 1? Probably not, but it wouldn't take long especially with the advent of the transfer portal and kids would be eager to play for him his college resume speaks for itself.

    Worst thing that could happen to the Titans - is Meyer gets fired right before kickoff and the team is galvanized and rallies around whoever the interm is - and then take us out. That would be such a Titan plot if I ever seen one.

    Jack DelRio was the HC in Jax. They sucked, and as a way to motivate them to keep working at it he came up with a slogan/metaphor of "keep chopping wood" (or something like that).

    To reinforce this slogan/metaphor Del Rio put a big log and an ax in the locker room and encouraged played to hack away at the log with the ax.

    The punter ended up badly injuring his leg or foot while chopping wood. The ax was removed after that.

    After a win once Fishface made a comment about the Titans continuing to chop wood.
