Bama arguably makes a laughing stock of college football. No, they don't win the title every year but the discussion over who will always begins with them. To that end, other schools study what they do down there in Tuscaloosa for tips and tricks on how to elevate their programs. One of these was on display Thursday night during the tOSU @ Indiana game. Many schools needing a head coach will hire someone whose experience is they were a coordinator. Saban turned this around, hiring a head coach to be a coordinator when he made former USC head coach Lane Kiffin his OC. About the only knock on Saban's teams over the years have been the lackluster offenses as opposed to those great tide defenses. Kiffin was brought in specifically to address this and it must have worked. Certainly, one could argue that without him they suffered a loss in the most important game of the season. So back to last night's game, everyone knows Urban Meyer is hungry for another title and of course, needs to beat Bama since it was Saban that ultimately led to him leaving Florida and the SEC. There is also the issue of a very embarrassing performance versus Clemson in the semifinal game last season, the first ever shutout of an Urban Meyer-coached team. Taking a page from the Nick Saban book on how to win National Championships, the fix was to hire former Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson to serve as his OC. But Meyer went a step further. If one former head coach on the staff is good, two is better. He hired former Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano to be his DC. Take that Saban! So what does that mean to us? Let's see, are there any offensive or defensive gurus who also happen to have been head coaches out there Lincoln Riley could bring in as a coordinator? A partial list might include Les Miles, Hugh Freeze, Mark Helfrich, Sonny Dykes, dare I mention Mangino? Just a thought . . .
