A lion isn't concerned with the opinion of sheep
This smacks of Rick Pitino to me. Coming in to a prime situation, and then doesn't get the guy he thought he'd get in the draft.Jimmy Johnson, Chip Kelly, Tom Coughlin, Jim Harbaugh, and Bill Walsh. But yes, the list of college coaches who came in and absolutely **** the bed is a long one.
EDIT: Oh and that buffoon Barry Switzer also coached at Oklahoma before he took Jimmy Johnson’s team and won a Lombardi.
I do think they will get Lawrence, however. He has to be familiar with the Jacksonville area somewhat. It will allow him to stay in the same geographical area. Other guys have outlined why the Jags are a good fit for Meyer, and that is the same for Lawrence. This is an opportunity for them to have a transformative effect on the franchise, much like we've seen here in NE.
Or, Meyer will suck and Lawrence ends up being a good QB on a chitty team. *shrugs*
