The gap between Saban and Meyer has never been bigger
Ohio State suspended Urban Meyer for three games after an investigation into his actions after learning of a 2015 domestic violence allegation against his former wide receivers coach, and Colin thinks the entire mess has permanently damaged Meyer’s brand.
Colin has always thought Nick Saban and Meyer were the top two coaches in the sport, but Saban has been widening the gap over the last several years while entrenching his dynasty. Meyer is now officially defined as scandal ridden. With this latest ugly incident, the gap between the two has never been bigger.
The Jets need to go get Khalil Mack
The Raiders and Khalil Mack are still locked in a holdout dispute, and recent reports say the Jets could be interested in trading for the former NFL Defensive MVP. Colin is usually wary of trading assets for veterans, but the Jets are in a position where they need to go for it and roll the dice.
It appears the Jets have their franchise QB in Sam Darnold, and have some key pieces in place, but Mack is an impact pass rusher in his prime and could instantly make a difference. Mack wants big money, but with Darnold under his rookie deal, they can afford to go for it. They should.
