Ladies and gentlemen, Mike Vrabel, new head coach of the Tennessee Titans:
“The NFL has the greatest farm system in the world. We pay our farm-system coaches $10 million to develop players,” Vrabel said. “[Alabama coach] Nick Saban is our farm system. [Ohio State coach] Urban Meyer is our farm system.”
The sentiment is no surprise, at least it shouldn’t be to any sentient being who follows college football, but WTF is with that “we”? Are Saban’s and Meyer’s salaries being underwritten by the NFL and nobody told us about it?
