I know, another thread, but this is confirmation apparently.

has 85 soldiers and they will have 70 in 3 years.....
I doubt he's still there in three years.
I think that you may be correct. If Meyer doesn't want stress, Ohio is the wrong place to coach, particularly if they end up losing a bunch of scholarships.
If the Columbus dispatch says it, it must be true.
Surprisingly negative comments about Meyer and the "process" from the OSU fans on the article.
I had to look at some of them and make sure that they we not from Michigan fans. They were not.
Two well-placed sources at Ohio State University confirmed for The Dispatch this morning that Urban Meyer will be announced next week as the next head football coach of the Buckeyes. But the sources also said final terms for a deal – such as length of contract and financial remuneration – have not been decided, despite recent reports to the contrary. Also, the sources said that though interim head coach Luke Fickell has not been in the loop, he will be taken care of when or if Meyer accepts the job. In what capacity, the sources weren’t sure.
So they are confirming that he may come???
...they're confirming that he will be announced as the coach whether he accepts the job or not.
I think Urban Meyer is really starting to change the tide on the rivalry. Hell, people in Ohio are starting to believe him. Never in a million years would I have thought that. Selling game-used jerseys in exchange for tattoos is a good start.
COMMENT OF THE YEAR
Well done, sir. And reading that in a Walken voice to myself makes it that much better.
"I think...Urban...Meyer...isreallystarting to chiiinge...the tide"
...people in O-HI-O...arestartingtoBElievehim. "
Best comment of the year.
So what they are saying is the new coach at Ohio St is just as big a liar as the old coach at Ohio st. This bodes well for us.
I was thinking the same thing. Urban just could have said "no comment", but he instead he has to lie or grossly mislead.
Come on, there are plenty of things to criticize Urban Meyer for and this isn't one of them. He never closed the door on coaching for OSU. The coach-hiring process makes it impossible for those involved not to lie to the media.
If anything, reading between the lines of his comments, made it obvious that he was open to taking the job.
Thanks Columbus Dispatch.
Now get to work confrming D-Day, Truman's election, and Nixon's resignation.
And while you're at it, figure out what that horrid smell is that sits over Columbus...
I live in Columbus these days (ugh), and I find that the smell I most often find wafting over my little corner of I-270 is actually the scent of sausage.
It's totally weird, but ... ultimately, not really that bad, y'know?
I associate Columbus with either the delicious smell of baking Wonder bread or the hard to identify odor that accompanies the brewing of Budweiser. I think that most who live in this neck of the woods will agree.
Agreed. I'm happy they scooped by folks who are "just" bloggers...idjits...
Duh - correcting my idjit grammar - 'got scooped'...
I was hoping that The Ohio University was going to get Dantonio. I don't think I could have ever stopped laughing.....
Over/under three years?
Over/under on the times ESPN shows him during the Ohio / Duke game? Over/under on how long his halftime speech is?
Unfortunately, the ABC talking heads will also use up half the Michigan-Ohio State game talking about this.
life during wartime and crosseyed and painless. Fine by me. Les Miles is the only option that would seriously worry me at this point. Balls of Steel vs. Hoke-a-mania would be tantalizing. Long live the mekons.
He couldn't spend time with them for longer than a year.
There were wild internet rumors about him having an affair with a grad assistant when he was at Florida and that his wife was going to divorce him if he didn't quit.
She's now had him at home for a year--maybe she's reconsidered?
If our coach is a giant hypocrite, he will be very successful.
ESPN put out quite a few stories about our own 2 recent coaching searches and during them both they were talking exclusively out of their asses the entire time and had no clue what was going on. Meyer may or may not have been in talks with TSIO but after seeing this twice from an agency as credible as ESPN I give very little weight to these rumors being true insight from some guy at Scout, a radio station, and the Columbus Dispatch. They thrive on stuff like this, it's how they make money.
Better start working on defending that Nebraska triple-option, 'cause Urban was quite enthralled.
turns it up to 11 and adds a jump pass at the end of the triple-option play as well....
When they confirm it.
I believe this is a refence to a misspelling.
Funny how its "confirmed" he will be announced as the new ohio coach next week but Fickle is out of the loop and will be taken care of " when or if" Urban takes the job. Yeah that sounds like a sure thing to me...
Meyer in. Smith out within 6 - 9 months. Contact with Meyer being done by Trustees and not by Smith.
regardless of who's contacting him. Undermining Fickle and adding a distraction for The Game in the hopes that they lose - and are thus justified in finding a top notch coach to replace him. Sneaky, but makes sense.
Seriously?!? Cleveland has it's own dedicated site (although not as big as the Chicago, LA, Dallas ones) but Detroit doesn't?
is not unsettling to the current OSU coaching staff at all. I'm sure they are 100% focused on preparing for Michigan. /s
This is good for Michigan in the short run (a distraction for this week).
What about the long run? As John Maynard Keynes said, "In the long run we are all dead." This week is the only thing that matters right now, and winning this week could very well have a positive impact on our performance in future years.
subUrbanites (his assistant coaches)
Urban's Outfitters (the supply closet or tattoo parlor, natch)
use of any of these phrases will cost you, a la Pat Riley's "thr33p34t"
When he sits down with his coaches to map out the game strategy, is that called Urban Planning?
Hopefully we will see some Urban Decay in the tOSU program.
When he can't beat Michigan, and Ohio stops believing in him, and he finds himself on the proverbial hot seat, is that called the Urban Heat Island Effect???
When he finds out the bowl ban and scholarhip reductions are way higher than what's already been self imposed and runs for the hills, is that called Urban Sprawl?
OK, at this point it's most likely true. This isn't Deadspin; it's a major newspaper. We should stop with the denials and rationalizations ("He'll be gone in three years"). We'll probably have to deal with him for the next decade. But he'll have to deal with us, too.
I'm sure SEC fans where telling themselves the same thing. It was closer to 3 years than a decade.
I think he'll remember to keep his pants on in the office this time around.
So you're really saying the girls in Ohio are much uglier than the ones at Florida....?
(*double entendre fully intended)
Hello: BriOnte Dunn! I just hope Dunn sneaks out of town and shows up on Michigan's campus so he doesn't have to put up with all the BS Kalis had to (possible by EE).
