So how do Alabama fans think of Urban Meyer?

More specifically, do you think Nick Saban would challenge a call while up 56-7? Or go for an onside kick while up 42-7? As Alabama fans, from your own perspective, what do you think is the most arrogant, prickish thing that Saban has done to another team? Or, what do you think would be perceived by opposing teams as the most arrogant thing Saban has done to them on the field? Obviously you all are in the position of being able to just say "like, duh, winning three national titles in four years, you dumb slow Yankee", but come now, be serious.

I ask because Urban Meyer is generally given respect in many quarters, and, well, I'm not sure why. I recall that twice, Saban was in position to arguably run up the score on Penn State. Particularly in 2010, and possibly in 2011 (though Penn State was a considerably tougher defensive unit in 2011). But in 2010, Saban called off the aerial dogs of war in McElroy and Jones, and was fairly conservative in 2011's second half as well. The 2010 game could have been a whole lot worse than 24-3 or whatever it was.

On the other hand, Meyer used his vastly superior position over Penn State to make it as painfully apparent as possible that his team was superior. So, again, I'm wondering: what do you think of Meyer? And what do you think of Saban as a user of running up the score?
