    Re: Bama AD just resigned....



    I'll believe Ozzie leaves when I see it. Bisciotti can out spend Bama any day. Ozzie is a god here. Bama, that would be a headache compared to the cushy life he has here in Baltimore. When Ozzie leaves, I believe it will be to fully retire, that Bama crap is just that, crap.

    Actually... I think Ozzie has indicated previously that the Bama AD job is an interesting proposition, but I would not expect him to leave at this time to take it, if offered. Maybe in another 5 years if it is available... But with his competitive nature and the way he makes decisions - I think he feel's he still has something left to prove here, even after a 2nd Super Bowl victory. But you never know.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    I think I made a safe purchase this past year... I got a "harbaugh" Jersey.. without his name on it. LOl, just a Nike DriFit Sideline Polo... but I jokingly call it my Harbaugh jersey.

    Prior to the 2013 offseason fiasco, I would have been concerned about losing Ozzie. No more. If he goes back to Alabama, best of luck to him. We'll get along fine without him. DecCosta is the backbone of the Ravens player personnel organization.

    I used to live in Alabama - Ozzie will feel the heat every season with a few losses.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    i think this is what Ozzie said 2 years ago


    "There will come a time when I'll be ready to leave pro football, maybe after we win two Super Bowls," said Newsome, who was in Mobile last week to accept an award at the United States Sports Academy while vacationing in the hometown of his wife.

    "At some point, I will walk away from the NFL and go back to work in an official capacity at the University of Alabama."

    Oh, this might not be good.
    Timing is everything.
    I have no idea how interested Ozzie would be in that job, but if he was going to make a move, now would be good timing.

    You just won the Superbowl, you are clearly in the beginning stages of the plan for the next few years trying to build again for another run by turning to a youth movement and have started by signing the franchise QB to a multi-year deal.

    The draft is only a month away, and the next in line has been with you for years learning, developing, and for all intents and purposes, is doing alot of what you already do.
    I'll assume they already have a pretty good idea who they want, how they rank guys, etc., etc.

    Yup, I could see it happening now if in fact Ozzie has dreams of being the AD at Alabama and they want him there to do it.

    (From a year ago fwiw)

    I agree though, now seems like as good of a time as any if he really does want to be the AD

    His name is already being thrown around as a possible candidate.

    With news of the school's athetic director stepping down Wednesday, attention will immediately turn to Newsome and any potential interest in the position. Several team sources who know Newsome well said they certainly could see him back at Alabama at some point, but got no sense he would be leaving now. He and the front office completeed the league meetings, and are still working to sign free agents and prepare for the draft.

    You said the same thing about Phil Savage being the brains behind Ozzie and he's out of pro football. Ozzie just got
    another ring.




    Nick Saban runs things at Alabama anyway. Ozzie would be playing 2d fiddle to him instead of running the show here.

    This comes up every time there's a change at Alabama and nothing happens like here.

    Oz wants another ring here and catch up to his pal Bellicheat and with Flacco, he'll just do it.

    Yes he said he wouldn't take that job. I too believe him. But for a slightly different rationale. I think Tony Lombardi may have written an opinion piece that covers what I am going to say.

    A college AD at a big time program like this is, more than anything else, a fundraiser. His job is to go to rubber chicken dinners, BS with the good ole' boys, slap some backs, and ask for money.

    That's clearly an extreme way to characterize it, but true.

    The thinking is that Ozzie is a football guy. If you saw the 30 for 30 piece on the Browns under Belichick there was Ozzie working at the lowest level of the organization as a "Slappy" they called that, and they enjoyed being called. Ozzie wants go to work, look at game film, grade players and run a football team.

    I have a hard time believing there is enough money to make him leave that for an AD job, where "Slappy" would correctly characterize the job, but in a completely different way. I just don't see it.

    Despite Ozzie Newsome being mentioned for Alabama AD vacancy, no one I've spoken with thinks he's leaving the Ravens. He loves his job.

    He's 73 years old. His health is bad and everyone knew sooner or later he was going to retire. It's been a rumor for the past 4 or 5 years.
