this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Google for I drink your milkshake
It's from There Will be Blood
Its an amazing scene
twitter is also saying that Urban is close to a deal to become the next head coach at UCLA, I would believe that before this one.
Demi and Ashton are trending on twitter too. Same with women who don't cook.
I don't believe anything I read on twitter unless it's posted by espn or sports illustrated.
And Urban Meyer doesn't scare me what so ever.
hahahaha you said ESPN hahahahahaha
If true, so much for taking a couple of years off to chill out and be with the family. OSU is another high pressure job, just like Florida. Some guys just can't help themselves.
Even if he does take the job, I doubt he's still there in 5 years.
I'll wait for someone real to report it.
It's like now they're saying that they're not being serious but once were.
I think you're reading into it too much. They were talking about the tweet above saying they heard from multiple sources. Not that they were no longer serious.
I hope it is true. Bring hm on!
I'll waiting until his press secretary..er daughter let's us know his plans.
His daughter has a decent twitter account...if you want to vomit. She really loved Florida while he was there...
That'll be a long commute from the house he just bought in State College.
Can we change "report" to "rumor"? I'll trust it when a credible news outlet says it. 11W may be just a little biased. Then again, with the state of investigative journalism in this country, ESPN will be reporting it in about 11 seconds using 11W as their "source".
Thought about doing that. But 11W is usually respected around these parts (including the proprietor of this here blog) as legitimate news.
I made sure to highlight that its them in the body so no one would think it was a widespread news release or wire report.
Ramzy might be tight with Brian but he's still nothing more than a honk for Ohio. He posts more than his fair share of hopeful/delusional crap about the ongoing "investigations" etc.
This Meyer business seems a lot like that.
Lets remember he retired from Florida for "health reasons" (amongst other things)... Why would he take on a program which is in shambles and under the NCAA and everyone's microscope? The only thing worse for his health would be taking over at Penn State- I think he is staying in retirement.
If he realy does have a health condition and it has to do with his heart, I would be very fearful if I were his family.
however, on a serious note, if true, fickel should probably give his resignation, effective today. i understand he forced into the position and didn't exactly have the university's support, but to have your school arranging your replacement behind your back is embarassing. leave with some dignity, on your own terms.
Foley's back in Gainesville and Fickell to Florida is a done deal. Multiple sources. No timetable for an announcement--they'll probably let Muschamp finish the season.
Bollman's rumored to be first choice for the job in Ohio. If they can't get Gruden, that is.
I totally believe these rumors, and I look forward to the many battles between Urban Meyer and Coach
Miles Ferentz Schiano Gruden Harbaugh Hoke.
Don't forget about Gary "Drinkle" Pinkell!
Whether it's Urban or someone else, you know tOSU isn't going to rest on their laurels with some two-bit coach. We should expect nothing less. And we should want nothing less.
last time going w/ the Youngstown State coach
He left UF to be with family and mind his health, but is already back in the fray after 1 year? I don't know...
Repeat the hesitations that have been shared in this thread. I don't know if he wants to go through another pressure grinder, at least not now. Maybe in a few years.
because the impact to recruiting of an Urban Meyer at Ohio State (even over Penn State) is a significant challenge (starting with Dunn staying), there are enough major openings this year to make it a good time to name your price.
On the flip, depending on how the NCAA actuals comes down on Ohio State in the end, they may need a fall guy. Some Kiffen-like homer , or (sorry in advance) naive Rodriguez-like candidate who would jump at the chance despite the risk to come in and sit over a program in catharsis.
The thing is, OSU's self-imposed sanctions are only 1-fers (unlike ours), not the typical 2x the crime. If the NCAA sticks to the rule of two, then they are looking at 10 scholarships, 2 bowl games, etc. Then there is the risk of an AD and maybe even a University President change. A lot of risks there. It depends on how Meyer sees the risk / reward. (Same thing at Penn State. I think the risk is actually lower there, the question is the recruiting cache versus OSU.)
I ain't afraid of Urban Meyer. Bring him on. He had a monopoly in FL while Miami and FSU sucked. He'll have some competition here.
He only had a down Miami and a down FSU to really compete with him in his backyard. Sure he was (still is?) a really good coach, but he's not some savior for Ohio's program. The NCAA won't pull their punches just b/c Meyer might be coming on board.
They are all quoting Mike Freeman of CBS, and he is saying its a false rumour.
as long as we beat 'em
They aren't satisfied with Luke Fickell?
Presently "Parked" by GoDaddy.com
What's the point if it's a foregone conclusion?
I want to give him one more year to prove himself. This year wasn't a fair test, given that he had 5 starters suspended for half the season and no chance to bring in his own people or create a functional offense. An additional year is contingent on firing the Walrus and the VCR repairman though.
said he wants to coach again, but he has it made at ESPN. It's a no stress job that pays him a lot of money to sit around and just talk football. I don't see him coaching for another couple years.
Kinda depressing that in the middle of an NCAA Shitstorm AND with their mouth breathing fan-base AND a dumb fuck AD, they still get their number one choice. We couldn't get our number one (Harbaugh) choice who was an alum and had to settle for our 2nd or 3rd choice. Now I'm not complaining after the fact, but it's somewhat puzzling since UM is a class above OSU on almost every level.
Urban may be the coach of OSU someday. Heck, he could be the coach of OSU next year.
One thing I will guarantee you...Urban WILL NOT TAKE THAT JOB BEFORE SANCTIONS COME DOWN. He is a smart man...why would he walk into a mess?
I agree about not being scared either. Saban beat him on a regular basis, so did MIles. We can too.
Spring summer at least, last time I heard.
I'm pretty sure Miles had a losing record against Urban, and Saban was .500.
THe media saying that it's a false rumor doesn't mean it's not true. I doubt OSU actually wants it out there that they have replaced their coach mid season, without even firing him. Would upstage the seniors 2 days before senior day and coming before the Michigan game as well. I can easily believe there is an oral agreement between both parties just as easily as there has been no such meeting.
As much as everyone says: why would Meyer want to go coach at OSU, after his health issues and the troubles going on down there, he has always said he'd like to coach at OSU, ND or UofM, and I doubt the actual sanctions from the NCAA will be that damaging. OSU's stonewalling and "self reporting" after the cat was out of the bag seem to be keeping NCAA punishments at a minimum.
And with the way the defense has turned around this season, I'm much less worried about opponents' coaches than I was 4 months ago.
Sure, but announcing a huge name like Meyer would probably help with their recruiting.
Maybe, but a lot of players don't want to play in a spread offense. I think Dunn has said something along those lines. He may be able to attract some spread athletes, but it might not be great for their class this late in the game.
Ohio is a heart attack recipe. No way this happens.
Don't see how he would do that when no one knows the serevity of sactions?
Yeah, it would be nice to beat OSU when their good, but Meyer is a VERY good coach. I want OSU to get smashed with sanctions, and to be stuck with Luke Fickell for the next couple years as their coach. I want OSU to lose every game, and I want Michigan to win the game by a lopsided margin for a couple years before that progam begins any kind of turn around.
I think people want Urban here because we have a good record against his teams. Not sure the record, but I know we beat his Florida team that had previous National Champion and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow at the helm.
There is probably some other stuff, maybe regarding the system he runs, or that he would probably not recruit Ohio as much as players from areas like Florida fit his systems better, but I honestly don't see him taking the job. He had a great gig at Florida and left because the stress gave him 2 near heart attacks I think. OSU isn't going to be a stress free situation, especially if he comes in before/during the hammer falls down on NCAA and he has to deal with sanctions.
As such I will wait until something is in writing. Besides this came out last week when asked about him returning to coaching:
Urban Meyer general statement: "I am very happy with my role at ESPN. I have no plans to return to coaching at this time."I am very happy with my role at ESPN. I have no plans to return to coaching at this time."
Granted that is in regards to the PSU situation, but I think he is truly happy at ESPN where it is a relatively stress free job and he still gets to cover/discuss college football on a weekly basis.
