Eleven Warriors is reporting Urban Meyer to tOSU as an almost done deal. They say there's an agreement, but no timetable for an announcement.
not gonna happen. You actually believe a tsio rag-blog? WAHAHAHAHA.
you have after a good laugh?
Cried like a little bitch when they carried Carr off the field.
But for something like that, it's not crying like a little bitch - it is crying like a man.
can't wait to see him on the sidelines in AA.
But it's so tough to watch. And not because for whatever reason there isn't an HD version available.
You see Rich Rod standing on the sidelines...very next play Donovan Warren makes a nice play...next play Manningham makes a nice play...Adrian Arrington comes up big. I'm sure the camera pans the sidelines and Ryan Mallett is going nuts.
Then you think, why the EFF didn't we play like that all year? Why THEN do we open it up?!
...but all in all, it was a great game and a great win. Manhandled.
Recall that Henne had a hurt arm and that was why Mallet played against Oregon, PSU and Illinois. He was still hurt when we played Wisconsin and OSU at the end of the year. He got healthy for the bowl game, and thus we were able to open it up with a healthy experienced senior 4 year starter QB.....
I recall the radio team (Beckman and Brandstatter) saying he was about 95% at the time of the Florida game and had hardly practiced at all during the season because of his injuries.
If I recall, Hart was injured often that year and Kevin Grady tore his ACL before the season, so our RB options were two very young guys, Brandon Minor and Carlos Brown. There were other things too....
By the looks of that grainy(sp?) video 2006 was 100 years ago.
Man I wish Long would have caught that pass. The world might have exploded due to that play's awesomeness.
I really do think he is a good coach, I really really want them to get hit with a 2yr probation/bowl ban. I also hope that OSU booster continue to drive this school to the ground.
Not to mention Meyer's best player on that team (TEBOW) was recruited by Mattison, he dont have Mattison now.
I'd like to see Hoke destroy both OSU and Urban Meyer every year. Michigan beat Urban last time we played him, we'll keep on beating him. OSU can keep him and the criminals that play for him.
Criminals? C'mon now.
given the number of arrests under his watch at Florida, I'd say that's an accurate statement.
in less than 4 years.
Even some of his own fans called for him to be fired:http://www.gatorsendzone.com/articles/why-the-university-of-florida-should-fire-urban-meyer/
So yeah, criminals. C'mon now.
It depends on what your definition of a criminal is. Law breaking isn't necessarily criminality. Often times law breakers are heroes. So, c'mon now, let's welcome Urban's future heroes to the B1G.
And what is your definition of criminal?
A person who dances in front of a mirror without pants. Everything else is a case by case basis.
With or without "Goodbye Horses" playing in the background?
would you *expletive delete* me?
need to be tucking his man part under their crass and saying "she puts the lotion in the basket, she does it when she is told" or is that optional as well.
In all seriousness, I doubt that is accurate. Not the right hire for OSU. Remember when Miles to Michigan was a "done deal?"
So you were the one stalking Erin Andrews?!
The pineapple guy's last link has a list of the first 24 incidents--which alleged lawbreaker do you think was a hero? Felony domestic violence by strangulation? Unauthorized use of a dead woman's credit card--70 times? Multiple counts of date rape?
They aren't all criminals, I agree...but who were the heroes?
You sound like the people who get mad at Colin Quinn's twitter account.
well, somebody's got to play the straight man.
Why does a dead woman need a credit card? She doesn't care. And maybe the bank had to eat all those charges. That's heroic in itself. #occupyunpaiddebtaccumulation
Srsly? I am not getting your sarcasm if that is what it is. you are wrong on so many levels.
Remember when Les Miles to Michigan was a done deal....twice?
Well it was until Lloyd, Moeller and MSC stepped in.
And what about last time around when local Baton Rouge sports casters were wishing Les luck in Ann Arbor after their bowl game?
What about it? It was rumored twice. In 2008 it was a very real possibility and beacuse of this people were much quicker to jump to conclusions the second time around.
I think you are missing the point - a coaching change is only official when you see the guy at the podium saying how happy he is to be there. John U. Bacon aside, I am still sceptical that Miles still doesn't go to LSU and get more money rather than coming here. Also, the 2011 Les Miles report wasn't a rumor. A station in Baton Rouge was reporting it as a fact. A done deal. They also said that Pelini had been hired to come to LSU. Like many on this Board, I wasted an hour or two of my life late one night listening to what turned out to be utterly wrong. Just like the "its Harbaugh," "its Gruden," "its the other Harbaugh" rumors that were all wrong.
Now, maybe this ends up being correct and Meyer goes to OSU. However, I am not going to worry about it until I see Meyer at a press conference in Columbus.
At Florida, it seemed that Meyer was able to bring together ludicrous collections of talent that sometimes played sloppy and underachieved. I know, it's tough to knock a guy who won 2 NCs in 6 years, but I don't think Meyer's coaching abilities are all they've cracked up to be:
So what am I trying to say? For a supposed offensive genius, Meyer's results are decidedly mixed. Before Tebow started (2005-06) the offense was above-average at best, and without Dan Mullen (2009-10) the offense wasn't that great either. Given what Mullen has been able to do with questionable talent at Miss St., it seems reasonable to credit Mullen with a lot of the offensive success under Meyer. And even with Mullen and Tebow, Florida never developed a consistent running game other than TEBOW SMASH - a lot of their success came from Percy Harvin being a ridiculous athlete and breaking a play or two.
I think Meyer (if he goes to Ohio) will be a good coach for them, but I don't think Ohio getting him is necessarily the kind of coup many people think he is.
If I'm honest with myself, I worry the same thing. And not just because Urb's coordinators seemed to help his sucess. That's another reason I would want Luke to stick around, it would help ease the transition, Luke would command a higher pay and hopefully influence getting all our coordinators higher salaries.
But also if we hire Urban now, it would be yet another Gene Smith decision. We all know how those have gone lately.
Today's lesson in "Rumormongering is what the twitters are for" comes courtesy of 11W:
Fire up the FlightAware, Buckeyes, and buckle up. You're in for a bumpy ride.
Ain't that the truth.
My wife still can't get over the fact I used flight aware last January in our collective time of coaching need.
One of the two of them is wrong.
We need to talk the next time I feel like betting on something! /s
Bring it on. With Mattison coaching our defense I'm not worried. I want to them to lose The Game when they are strong, not weak.
And I'm sure Mattison won't pull an Andy Reid and get his play calls picked off by someone that knows him fairly well, like Kolb did for Arizona.
