"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
OT Urban Meyer "used" Tim Tebow: NFL Hall-of-Famer and Gators great Jack Youngblood no longer a friend of Urban
Leaving this here without further comment about the integrity of Urbz:
Just confirming what this board already knew.
John Feinstein at the WaPo rakes Meyer over the coals.

Nothing Earth-shattering here, and I know the Post is considered somewhat of a rag, but it's circulation is undeniably massive. Highlights:
At best, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has a public perception problem. At worst, he’s another in a long line of win-at-all-cost coaches.
As was the case at Florida, Meyer refers to his Ohio State players as his children. He says he has a responsibility to “educate, correct, discipline, and push them in the right direction as hard as you possibly can.’’ “To have a couple of knuckleheads make some decisions that reflect the entire program, that’s not — I guess it’s part of the deal,’’ Meyer said. “It’s something that bothers me, bothers our staff and we work very hard to avoid with our players.’’
Obviously, this next chapter in Meyer's tome has yet to be written. This will be a fun ride indeed, especially if he turns into the second-coming of Coop. (And by that I mean losing to Michigan with regularity.)
OSU DB and recognized Scholar-Athlete Najee Murray was reportedly dismissed for the dreaded "violation of team rules." Murray tore his ACL last year and was one of the lower rated recruits in Meyer's first recruiting class. Potential All-American Bradley Roby is still on the team after his assault charge though. And Murray has reportedly already found a landing spot at Louisville with former Florida and Meyer assistant Charlie Strong. I will let you draw your own conclusions.
