If you take a little time to navigate the Airbnb website (yeah, I know it's harder now, and I'm an Airbnb host), you can figure out a general location for a listing, and make note of a major street intersection shown on the map. You could then enter that street info into google maps and look at a "street view" of the area, and just kind of look at the neighborhood, which might tell you something (how well maintained things are, etc.). Also, reviews for a listing are expected to comment on the location (and many will mention whether it's safe or not), so I would pay attention to what reviewers are saying.
Sounds like he hasn't left anything on the field for UAB and is finally taking care of his own health. Since he's already had P5 offers, and passed them up out of what can only be called loyalty, why throw him in with all that Urban Meyer has come to represent?
And it sounded like a hypothetical question, but why would anyone remotely qualified pass up the offer of being hfc at a P5 program, unless there are serious quality of life concerns with the types of people to be dealt with at such a program? Win or lose, stay or get fired, the money is good.
