Meyer to the Buckeyes

Posted on: November 28, 2011 8:27 am
 
Urban Meyer has come out of retirement again to become the football coach at Ohio State, opening himself to mocking by most of the country -- but assuring that Ohio State will make a quick return to national power.

Meyer is that good.

And his story, of course, is that bizarre.

After retiring from Florida in 2009 for a whole day, then retiring again in 2010 for a whole year -- to be with family, he said -- Meyer is back on the sideline according to his most recent employer, ESPN, which reported the deal to be worth $40 million over seven years.

Seven years, $40 million ... sound familiar? It should. Those were the reported terms of this hire a week ago, when Meyer said he hadn't spoken to Ohio State and that no offer had been made. Of course he was using semantics, which will get him crushed today, just as his "retirement for family" will get him crushed today.

Those are valid points, but do not miss the bigger picture: Urban Meyer is a damn good football coach. Ohio State is a damn good football program. Together, they will do special things.

But he said that they never offered him the job the other day.  This can't be!  Were we lied to?  My gosh I just don't know what to believe!!!  This has just shaken my trust in news and sports in general. 


Yes this is sarcasm...why do people insist on denying truth when it comes out only a few days later that they are accepting a job?

Is he going to hire Tebow as the Offensive Coordinator?

If one wishes for an example of the pro-SEC/anti-BigTen bias of this website, they need not look farther than this sorry-excuse for an article.

O-H!


What part of this article is not true?  He did retire for a day from UF for health reasons.  He did retire again the next year for the same and it lasted a year.  He did deny claims all week that he was the head coach for OSU as did his agent.  He has now pulled a Saban and is announcing it shortly after denying all of the rumors.  That is fine and he has a right to do this but the part that I don't understand is all of the cloak and dagger.  If he is working on cutting a deal with them, why deny it?  Why not simply say that he has spoken with the university and he would let everyone know when a decision is made?

30 Plus arrests at his time at Florida, which was well documented by HBO...I guess Ohio State likes watching sequels...

A cheating corrupt coach goes to a cheating corrupt University. The two deserve each other. Be careful for what you wish for %$#%eyes. So much for hiring integrity, for OSUCKS is just about winning. Oh, and I saw that a Miami recruit flipped to OSU, since when are criminal penitentiaries allowed to trade player? Buck the %uckeyes!

We'll see how good Meyer is without Dan Mullen. You saw it the last year a UF. He needs a great OC and a DC. But he is a really good Special Teams Coach.

Did I miss something here?  What exactly is going to get Meyer crushed?  It seems that with a contract like he's REPORTED to be getting, that he would be the one to do the crushing.  Do you really think that he is going to allow media types who can't always get the story that they want when they it work on his ego.  Ask that reporter from the Orlando paper how it feels to tangle with Meyer.  Seriously, I think that anyone seeking to "crush" him is going to be ignored.
