This is odd.
landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
This is odd.
yea, I mean who cares! they might as well call Michigan State Michigan.
Probably some new stupid jersey they are going to wear against us...or announcing he will only reference us as the school up north?
Is this a joke, or is this real?
But I can tell you the post off the Valenti/Foster Facebook feed is very real
the conference is real, but this whole shyt is a joke
Maybe they want you to tune into their radio station at 4:35 and they are going to talk about Meyer saying something about Michigan. Probably a teaser to get more fans (b/c Michigan draws ratings) to their show if I had to guess. Either way, the only time I want to hear Meyer talk is in a press conference after we beat them and he has tears streaming down his cheeks.
You are correct, Michigan, Lions and Tigers do draw the most ratings on 97.1 and msu turns people to other stations. This bit of info is from a host I know personally on 97.1. who also said that Valenti has been told to not indulge in sparty so much because of ratings reasons but Valenti doesnt care.
Terence Reginald Foster III?
I'd like to hear him explain the piss in his pants after we dominate him, in every aspect of life. - Michigan defense
He is announcing his retirement citing health concerns.
He already succumbed to Nick Saban disease. The prognosis is a severe case of Brady Hokeitis will be the end of his coaching career.
There's people that not only still listen to that windbag but subscribe to stuff from him on Facebook?!
I do it just for the articles???
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said Ohio State will refer to Michigan as that school up North. woody and Bo mentality returns. yeah
isn't that old news?
I thought so but apparently it qualifies as new to Valenti and Foster. After that post they posted that someone said Michigan and Meyer said "we don't use that word". Turns out it wasn't worth the time, not surprisingly.
Do they refer to MSU has That School Up North State University? Or That School Up North Agricultural College? I mean, they don't use THAT word.
Well that's not as bad as being called "Ohio." I can't think of a worse word.
at least Toledo has Tony Packo's and used to be part of Michigan. There's nothing redeeming about that university or football program.
In related news, Brady Hoke will coninute to refer to Ohio State as "Ohio" except after the game each year when he will refer to Ohio as "that school we just beat."
Brady Hokes mentality towards the rivalry feels more authentic. Brady avoided Ohio State affiliation every college stop he made. Urban just felt he needed to reassure everyone that he kinda cares
Nail on the head. I heard that Urban had in his contracts at Utah & Florida that he could leave to coach Michigan, ND, or Ohio. Anyone else hear this or know if any truth behind it?
Yup, I remember that too. It was in the Utah contract:
Thanks for digging that up.
So we know for a fact that Hoke would never coach at Ohio.
Urban on the other hand actually made it a point to put Michigan on a list of places he would be able to leave his current job to coach at.
This goes right along with telling kids God wants them to play football at BGSU / Utah / Florida / Ohio.
wow...he's just chock full of innovation
If he needed to actually tell everyone that. Should we make an official anoucment he will now be called the liar from down south?
He will do the only thing he knows how to against Michigan: lose
(See 2008 Capital One Bowl)
You do realize that it was one of the many vermin at 97.1 who tweeted that right?
Who cares. Scoreboard baby.
Ok - fess up. Which one of you jokers peed in Urban Meyer's Cheerios?
You mean today? Tuesday is my day to pee in his cheerios. I don't know who's got Fridays.
Today is Thursday.
I enjoyed it.
That tweet was a let down. 40-34
He is announcing that he will be giving Michigan the silent treatment.
This is a guy who quit his job twice because he basically had a bad case of the hiccups.
Him acting like he's a badass is fucking laughable. If only sitting in a room with his family wasn't more terrifying than his fear of death by indigestion, none of us would have to listen to this windbag anymore.
Not really news that he's a whiny bitch. Remember 2006? If not, allow me to refresh your memory.
He's ALWAYS been a whiney bitch. He did NOTHING but whine when I played for him at BGSU. He pissed and moaned to keep us out of the rematch in '06. And he'll bitch and whine for the next 3-4 years until he leaves for personal reasons just prior to TSIO's Little Ceaser's Bowl appearance at the completion of that season. I hear he just inked an endorsement deal for Midol.
Nice, any other inside info about him being an asshole?
The thing I hate about the new scoreboards is the score isn't permenant. After the game I really wanted to take a picture of my gf and I with the score in the background, but the actual score was removed almost immediately. I can see that you're wiley enough to see that coming.
I wish I was lucky enough to have been at this game, but a fellow MGoBlogger sent me this picture because I requested one on here so I could frame it next to 1969 & 1997 ones.
Someone on another message board posted an email sent to Dave Brandon voicing the same complaint. Brandon replied and said he would look into to doing something to keep the score posted after games. So hopefully that is fixed by next season
I thought she was your fiance? I'm telling her you said that.
you got me.
Is this for real? If so, the guy is off his rocker.
or are they just blowing smoke like they usually do?
...how this is news? Dude is not Woody. He never was Woody, and he'll never be Woody. So why the hell are we supposed to care what the heck he refers to us as?
You're a lot of talk and a badge....
...brings forth an interesting question: Would you rather your coach compulsively lie to recruits, or punch opposing players in the face after a loss-clinching play?
Meyer said he will be wearing an extra pair of Spanx for The Game every year.
since that's exactly what Hoke is going to do to him.
Well one thing's for sure. Whatever he says will be a LIE cause everybody here knows all he does is lie. He lies so much the other I read somebody called him....get this...."URBAN LIAR"...har har...get it? Man that's so funny.
I'm going to start calling him Pinocchio or something as a cool way of letting everybody know just what a liar Urban Meyer...I mean LIAR is. I mean there is nothing...literally nothing....funnier and more true than that. And orignal too!
And I cant speak for everybody here on MGoBlog but I love that every time he makes a sound or does anything for that matter he gets a post. I don't know which i love more...the Urban "Liar" posts or the Marc Dantonio/MSU ones.
They just never, ever get old.
What I love most are the obnoxious rants about what the poster doesn't like and hates reading, along with the implication that everyone else should hate the same things. Obviously this is important to do because the poster has no ability to actively choose which threads he/she reads and, hence, must act swiftly to change everyone else's behavior since he/she can't simply change his/her own behavior.
In my opinion we sound like a bunch of whiny third graders tattling on another kid at recess with our obsession with another team's coach and his alleged behavior.
Meyer is announcing the commitments of Suburban Meyer and Tahoe Meyer, his children from the "chearleader incident" at Florida that prompted his "health concerns" retirement.
It's official - MGoBlog breaks news faster than Valenti And Foster AND an Urban Meyer presser, and here I was, thinking he was going to revive his campaign that was so successful with the Gators...
the nicknames behind.
Snitches get stitches URB.
Difference between Hoke and Meyer:
Hoke, completely on his own accord, has been calling them "Ohio" for years and did so from the word go at his press conference.
Meyer took more than 2 months to make these changes, in an obvious retaliation to Hoke.
One is genuine, one is for show for his fan base.
I CONCUR, MY GOOD FRIEND. I CONCUR, INDEED!
One thing that frightened me about Tressel is that he was actually an authentic, grassroots kind of Ohio coach. A guy who really, geniunely had a dislike for Michigan and instilled that in everything he did with his program.
Meyer is just such a contrived, phony celebrity. Everything he does and says seems like it was scripted by some PR manager. I love that such a character-less figure is in charge down there; it makes it that much easier to disrespect them. We have a sincere, high-quality human being as coach. Another clear point in our favor as we seek to prove objective good and evil in the rivalry.
What did he say? Did I miss it?
Yeah it seems like everyone knows what it is but it must have gone right over my head
Apparently he's no longer referring to us as Michigan -- rather "that school up north"
How this is news is beyond me...
And Gordon Gee said Bret Bielema needs to get a life?
I was hoping it was an announcement to the press that they finally found AJ Hawk's missing 5,000 dollars from when it was stolen in college.
Damnit. This dude's single-handedly kind of turning me into an Alabama fan.
Just remember that Saban runs the show down there and this cordial 'Bama fan is probably fiercely supportive of the Sabanator 4000 as long as he brings MNCs to Tusk-ah-loosa.
But he's still funny as hell.
They just completed their biannual new car inventory and it appears for the first time in 10 years that the units on hand and the sales invoices add up. YEAHHH....OSU COMPLIANCE!!!!
That money is just like the CD's that were stolen from Clarret's car--long gone.
Does anybody think this whole Urban OSU thing feels fabricated? It feels the opposite from when coach Hoke was announced. I personally think he won't be there more than three or four years.
I knew there was a reason I was writing those diaries...
Seriously, why is he trying so hard. All he has to do is coach and they will all love him down there. Instead, it feels like he's trying to show off or something, which is just making him look like he's got an inferiority complex. IMO.
He is going to announce how he will refer to Michigan? Just do it. Oh, and try to be original and not derivative of a dead guy who got fired for losing his mind during a football game.
Yes - it is very forced. The whole thing is so plastic and pandering it's ridiculous. But the OSU trash buys it, so he puts it out there.
Our Tremendous Coach Hoke calls them Ohio because thats what he does! booban meyer is doing it for publicity. big 'ol phony.
Get ready for another ten year war fellas!
If the pressure got to him in Florida, well, he ain't seen nothing yet.
It wasn't the pressure that got to him at Florida.........if you know what I mean.
He held a press conference to announce this??? Wouldn't it be a lot cooler to just start doing it?? A la Brady Hoke?? This just looks like he's trying too hard to fit in down there
Edit-should have read the second page before posting
You get a car and you get a car and you get a car!!!!
Perhaps Brandon said it best in reference to Urbie's press conference:
“I think it's really unfortunate the slam that they're taking at Michigan State, because MSU, really, is the team that's the furthest north," he said at today's Winter Classic news conference.
"I don't know how to read all that. I don’t if they thought that through completely. And frankly, I don't care a whole lot to how they refer to us.”
of a degree more north than Lansing, Michigan.
It's not about the "School up North". It's about the 2013 Chargers. Definitely.
Madison is a few tenths of a degree more north than East Lansing. Minneapolis is more than 2 degrees more north than East Lansing.
The amazing thing is that the guy has not won a single game yet. You'd think they at least wait one game before pullin their wangs out.
But the real question is... when does he announce that he has never and will never wear blue?
edit: In response to 419Wolverine's comment
That you can respond to that comment, yes?
Oh yes, I know. I have no idea how my comment ended up where it did. I obviously screwed up, but once you mess up on here you can not just delete your post and have a do over.
That is where i got it from. I just didn't link it. Hilarious.
what a pathetic little stunt
I only hope that that we can recover our season and our dignity after such a devastating slam from such a respected and honorable coach.
Woody Hayes was doing this in the 1960's. Why is it suddenly "news?"
Becaus Tater, he's changing the Big Ten. He's changing it forever. Don't get left behind.
I like Hoke's homegrown name better because it makes so much sense. And it really upsets Ohio fans when you call them Ohio fans.
The only question I have is, what happens to "We don't give a damn for the whole state of that school up north"? Not very melodic.
Right, even on their gold pants that they get for beating us say "Ohio". Saw a pair on ebay today from the '09 game that said Ohio 21 Mich 10 with the price at $795(OBO) and it said they would only reveal the initials on the gold pants to the person who purchases them. Must belong to a current Senior or something...
Hoke shortened their name and Meyer made ours longer. I think that's funny. I bet Meyer cracks first.
When Urban says, "That doesn't happen here, and if it did, we would make a change" reminds me of a client that told me, "I didn't kill him, and if I did, it was self-defense."
Brady Hoke changes Ohio on the schedule to That Team That Cannot Go to a Bowl Game.
....what did he actually say?
Meyer = contrived
We are in his head.
"Why is he picking on State? They are North of AA. "- paraphrase of Dave Brandon retort
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!!! However Hoke does it, because he's passionate about the rivalry, Meyer is doing because he knows he has to cater to knuckledraggers in Cbus and make them think he cares about the rivalry. Tsio is going to be really pissed, when they realize they didn't get the same coach UF had. He's lost the fire, look at his last recruiting class, he didn't recruit, he poached. Which shows me, he wasn't willing to go out and do the dirty work. Hey Smitty, great hire!!!!
What if you saw Urban Meyer within 100 feet of Michigan's football facilities today?
so what did urban anounce for realsies?
I'm sure when the Pontiff was hired he had the best minds in Ohio working on this. All those buckeyes with "Exploring" degree just setting on their coolers at the Flying J Truck Stop on highway 70 in the greatest think tank ever assembled. After two months, many PBR's and Slim Jims they forgot why they were assembled and when reminded one of them called Jim "Cheaty McSwetervest" Tressel, but he confused them with double-talk and big words. Time was running short because they almost had filled their coolers so it was decided to just go with what Woody would say so they could please thier new coach and get good seats for Sunday dinner at Waffle House.
Meyer is just a cash whore, now spreading his undying loyality for "whatever school forks over the money". It does seem a bit tinny listening to this clown now only refer to us as "that school up north"...and Michigan was a school he would have considered??? At least Hoke's disdain for all things Ohio have been going on ALL HIS LIFE.
