this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Urban Meyer unallegedly had 30+ arrests at Florida (5 of which allegedly involved dead hookers)
Because I hate myself to the point of masochism and don't always have bamboo shivs to ram under my fingernails, I sometimes listen to 97.1 The Fan in Columbus. The evening host, Adam Neft, was talking about a tweet from the O-zone beat writer. In it, the O-zone guy claims that Brady Hoke brought up Urban's arrest record, as a response to the now infamous snackademic sign at the Woody Hayes Center.
The contents of the relevant tweets:
I did not hear this directly, but it came from someone on our board who was in attendance this morning.
That was Hoke speaking at the Detroit Athletic Club this morning when asked about Ohio State's poster comparing college majors to UM
Brady Hoke on Meyer: "We dont recruit negatively, I'm not going to mention 30 felonies in 5 years that happened in his previous program."
So, this is all secondhand at best. It doesn't sound like something Hoke would say out loud to the media, but who knows. It'll be interesting to see if it's true and if this bit makes the rounds in Columbus, where they still think - let's see if I can quote them directly on this - Jabbe the cHoke negatively recruited kyle kACLis to scUM /rabblerabblecoolerpoopers
