Obviously Urban is racist.
Sound Mind and Body Camp - Picture of Hoke and Meyer
Never noticed how nice Brady Hoke's calves look until now.
Pictures are worth a thousand words, but holy crap you can infer a lot from one of them.
I wonder what it says about a person when they use an ambiguous snapshot image to fill out a preconceived narrative and then try to use it to influence opinion...
Just sayin man, otherwise delightful story, would read again.
I don't know what you're talking about. Urban is obviously going for "Blue Steel".
His Blue Steel isn't bad but I've heard "Magnum" is going to blow us all away.
For instance, making a buch of substance-free inferences about a candid photo may develop a reputation for reactionary dumbness.
We may as well have fun with it, I guess.
You just have a thing for chickens - a'la Ernie Anastos (NSFW language):
Necessary for a chicken to be considered a chicken had to have taken place inside the egg. Without that mutation, the egg would have hatched and whatever bird the chicken descended from would have come out.
Or you could have just said that dinosaurs had eggs long before chickens, or any of their close relatives even, existed.
Was beng taken so he didn't look up. Meyer was closer so he saw the camera and looked up. A picture from a few minutes before showed them both looking down and enjoying the ribs. It's absolutely ridiculous to think that this picture showcases the personalities of both coaches.
Nope you were right earlier, he's a racist.
Or the photog asked Meyer, "Hey coach, how are those ribs?" Meyer, being the nice considerate fellow he is, looked up to respond that these were some durn tasty hunks o' meat.
Not likely. I think its because he is racist. Clearly racist.
is a hot intern...
Urb is just saying "How YOU doinnnnnn'"
Bobby Petrino wants some of that action!
everything including the rib eating contest....I put all my money on Hoke
from his actions on the field, on the recruiting trail, in press conferences, etc. But from a picture of guys eating some ribs? You're better than that , Butterfield.
And putting them back in for Urb.
doesn't strike me as a lick and put back type of guy.
That knows there's a 2nd tray of ribs that he left inside for himself, he's just licking all of those.
wait a minute, I thought Urb had health issues. if so, eating ribs certainly doesn't make sense.
Eating ribs always makes sense.
Until I had the wed/sat ribs at Boma in Orlando. Truly a religious experience.
Is not like the other.
Hoke and Meyer look a lot different than they do on TV. Also, who are those two white guys?
Where is Dantonio? Is he intergalactically recruiting somewhere?
Those ribs that Urban Meyer is eating, were originally Mark Dantonios. Mark Dantonio has found the potato salad, which he feels he and his staff can coach up into dish that can knock out the ribs. In all fairness, when the potato salad is done assulting the competition, it serve its 1 meal suspension and be on the field in time for when the ribs arrive.
Pwned by the double post
weeds knawing on Hoke and Meyer's leftovers.
Dantonio is Hiding in the weeds of course!!!!
And any other fan base else would be making fat jokes about Hoke...
Brady Hoke is not fat, he is husky. In the community he would be called juicy or thick.
After losing to Michigan the next couple years he will feel no heat like the angry OSU fans! He will just fold and retire again!
You're right. Because he DOESN'T have a heart condition. He had esophageal spasms which are essentially harmless other than mimicking angina. It was partially a convenient part of his excuses to step away
Anyone else see any irony in serving up huge plates of ribs at the "Sound Mind and Body" camp? "Everyone be healthy! ooooooo ribs om nom nom nom"
there is nothing better for my mind than ribs.
Maybe "Sound Mind Cholesteral-clogged Body" would be a better name for this event.
Then again, I'm not sure how sound a mind one has either to be eating standing up next to the trash cans that appear to be sitting outside the back door. Man, and people complained that Coach Rodriguez was a hick.
I will definitely stipulate to this: the desire to grab a rib or two from a steaming hot plate of them as they go past you, wherever you might be, or wherever you are offered them, is proof that you have a sound mind.
I was going to reserve making some childish remark about how great Hoke is and how bad Meyer is, until I saw the white shorts. Really??? Come on, man! You don't wear white shorts to eat ribs!
I make no assumptions about Urban's belt line. I leave that to the co-eds.
In light of the supposed health problems, this could be Urban, realizing he has been caught eating ribs, politely putting them back. All the while, he is thinking to himself, "Must remember what I said at the first resignation from Florida..." You could also argue that he didn't exactly like that particular batch, but that's OK because they didn't have a committable offer to his stomach.
What's more telling of Urb's personality is the white pants. No man should ever where white pants unless painting, playing sports (coaching isn't playing) or your name happens to be Boss Hog.
September can't get here soon enough.
"When I first heard of this ... I started laughing. I said, 'You can't do that.' And then our compliance said, 'You sure can.'"
Is there anything OSU compliance would say "no" to?
it points out the Meyer doesn't know the recruiting rules as well as he has made people believe.
Urban said that is because the coaches who attend not only get to talk to potential recruits, but also "coach" them on the field. Something that normally would be a violation of NCAA rules during the offseason. Apparently there's a by-law in the NCAA though that allows Adidas to run this event.
Honestly, shouldn't this photo be shopped in some way by now?
my reaction looking at photo: urban distracted from his conversation / eating ribs with the other three folks
thread author's reaction: urban caught mid-planning assasination plot on the president
Hoke: What do you think you're doing?
Meyer: You have this on camera if he bites my hand off, right?
Here is a fun topic for a thread: post a picture and make all sorts of inferences about the character of the people in said picture. You could even make a whole story up about what is happening/happened.
All joking aside, I don't like Meyer much, but I also don't like the idea of being so judgemental over a picture such as this...
The dog days of June Threads.... sigh
I was under the impression that coaches weren't allowed to be at these camps.
So was Urban. I think actually Hoke and Dantonio were kind of avoiding camps like this because they felt it was a fine line, but now there will be peer pressure for all the Big Ten coaches to go to things like this. Like Urban said, there are some kids who can't afford to go on unofficial visits for travel costs, etc. so they have to wait until senior year when the school's can foot the bill. This gets players some face time without travel low to no travel costs.
As I read more about it, it seems like they just spoke at the school. I think they aren't allowed to be present during the actual on-field camp portion.
You may be crazy for reading that much into the photo but I may be even more crazy for thinking that you are right.
Really man you must have no life trolling here. Kinda sad .
My life? My life is a disaster zone. I've got a step-daughter so fucked up cause her real dad is this large-type asshole. I got a wife, we're passing each other on the downslope of a marriage - my 3rd - because I spend all my time chasing guys like you around the block. That's my life.
some posts are not showing up in the iPhone app, because your post is WAAAY out of left field. Regardless, hope things improve for you...
You aren't missing anything. Sorry for the confusion. I was just trolling the guy who said I was trolling with a quote from the movie Heat.
That's just good clean living there.
It's not like he presented an essay titled "Urban's Defining Moment: The Rib Snatch." He just found a photo that's comical because that's the impression we have of both of those guys.
For a thread competing with "Kidney Transplant Live Feed" and "I'm going to re-enact The Rookie" on the first page you guys sure are touchy.
this photo is screaming to be captioned or shopped
Great time with
@MSUAD Mark Hollis and his entire coaching staff at BTN today - a lot of fun to show them our world and watch them do a show
Is it just me or is it a huge oversight for MSU's coaching staff to go to the BTN instead of SMSB? I know, rabble rabble recruit galactically, but honest question, are they stupid or am I missing something?
Hey OP, can we get your brilliant anaylsis of this picture too?
Obviously, Meyer has absolutely no respect for people that ask to take pictures of him, and selfishly focuses on pleasing himself with food - he clearly didn't even thank the cooks for the food. Hoke, ever the Michigan Man, takes time out of his favorite past-time to acknowledge the nice gentleman asking for a picture - showing how down to earth he is.
Urban had just said "Thanks for these great ribs". The guy on the left is laughing because he said, "What ribs? That's your 'rib'. Those ribs are Brady's ribs." Brady smiles.
I'm sticking with racist.
If there is a post, picture, and explanation and screams to all of us that it's the offseason, this is it. We have a winner among several worthy candidates.
Lol @ the dumb ass character analyses you people are coming up with based on this picture
Thanks for the laughs, as usual.
you say "you people," are you trying to say all of MGoBlog readers are making the inference? Or did you just read the original poster and then completely ignore everyone else commenting under it who told him that making an inference based on something like that was totally dumb? Oh, Buckeyelurker0509, who is making the inferences on people now? Thanks for THE laugh.
Or the other thing you might mean by this. You might mean that the "dumb ass character analyses (sic)" is actually funny and you are sincerely thanking us for the laughs. OH GOD...NOT SURE WHAT TO INFER FROM POST.
That's the theme song for the Jefferson's!
I don't know if I agree with your detective work there, Lou.
Seriously, I think it's totally obnoxious when people here decry every criticism of OSU as Maize-colored homerism ... but this is really silly. Urban will give plenty of ammunition to you if you'll show a little bit of patience, I think, but what this photograph most likely shows is that he was much closer to the photographer than Hoke, and so looked up from the ribs.
Get defensive if you'd like, but I think you know that you let yourself get carried away on this one.
but now having digested the comments, I see you've been so thoroughly roasted that there's no need to skewer you further.
But since I'm here, I give you cinematic history's greatest exposition ever on the subject of ribs, courtesy of Chris "Gimme One Rib" Rock:
No reaction to the headline of the article, no reaction to Meyer's comments about plans to recruit "up north".
I dare him.
Didn't you have a message board "retirement" from mgoblog?
For those with no sense of humor, I don't think anyone is doing serious psychoanalysis from these pictures. Just having some fun. Other than the obvious revelation that Meyer is a racist.
Notice how Hoke is standing right next to the rib guy, and Meyer is keeping his distance.
I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.
