Meyer listens to "My Humps" by the Black Eyed Peas
I was thinking more along the lines of Sir Mixalot's "Baby Got Back." Ballers Got Back?

Thanks in advance.
...what it means. It's provacative. Gets the people going.
Doctors say I'm the illest,
Cuz I'm sufferin from realness...
Fat-bottomed guys you make the sporting world go round!
I want to spend a few hours sitting in my living room with Meyer so I can find out what exactly it is that is so appealing about the guy. It is one of the great mysteries of the universe.
I really think its a facade. He becomes what people say he is. They put on the rose-colored glasses before he even walks into the door...that is IF he even walks into the door. Reputation can work wonders.
This is not meant to be a comment on religion, but he reminds me of an out of touch pastor trying to identify with youth. They may have a lot of good information to share, but they have no idea how to relate it effectively. I think Meyer is trying to build credibility by making "hip" comments (I know nobody uses him anymore, give me a break) but it just comes off as awkward and sort of creepy. He seems like the kind of guy that exudes confidence outwardly but is really insecure.
Edit: I think he's a successful recruiter at Ohio because of the school, his coaching record, putting players in the NFL, and his system. I think most recruits would go there in spite of his personality and not because of it.
Lots of psychoanalysis on this board by fans with keyboards. Jeepers. Or maybe, he's just like every other dad in the world trying to talk to 18-year-old kids who have completely different tastes/hobbies/attitudes.
If my dad called me "bubbles" when I was in high school, I'd have tried to get emancipated. There are some things that just set off alarms for me and inappropriate jokes about a person's anatomy, especially a minor, are one of them. Do I think Urban has a sexual attraction to HS boys? No. Do I think he choses really unfortunate jokes and phrases sometimes? Definitely. I was just speculating about why someone who seems to have it all together can seem so far out in left field sometimes.
Come on. You're taking this too seriously. You must think all recruting analysts are pedophiles. You know all these players have coaches who slap their butts, right? That certainly must be worse than talking about their butt.
I played sports and to me a butt slap is a motivating/congratulatory thing and not sexual at all. Even if there were an openly gay player on my team, I wouldn't take it sexually. Also, I said that I don't think Meyer has sexual issues regarding recruits. I'm just saying that a pattern is developing of Urban making off color jokes or references like this and I'm just wondering why. He is starting to come off as the nerdy guy trying to fit in with the jocks. Maybe it's just me seeing the world through OSU hating glasses, but he just seems a little flaky to me.
Well, you're insane?
did he learn nothing from Sandusky and PSU on how not to conduct yourself???
Hahahahhaa. Uhm. Hahahahaha.
When I hear Urbs is up to his usual, I assume "gifts", talking shit about Michigan et al., pulling schollies. This is just weird, which is humorous, but not what I was expecting
My bad....I can change the title
What a weird dude. I would be cautious letting him in my house if I was Raekwon's parents.
BTW If his nickname isn't "The Chef", then his parents have failed miserably with that name choice.
Its one thing to think it, and probably the same to look for it when you're evaluating talent, but its a completely different thing to actually go on record saying it.
Thanks for the fodder, Urbs.
Urbs' recruiting system is bold and innovative - name drop Tim Tebow, Percy Harvin and Brandon Spikes in every conversation, and correlate some aspect of every recruit in front of him to Tim Tebow, Percy Harvin and Brandon Spikes.
I heard he woo'ed a DT in Texas with the fact that the kid's eyes were the same color as Tebow's and he had the same way of laughing as Harvin.
We have no chance against a recruiter of this magnitude.
People say the same thing about Mattison dropping names like Suggs, Lewis, Reed, etc.
Mattison name drops former players all the time, and I don't really think bringing up former players is a bad thing, sooo, yeah. Name drop away guys.
EDIT: beaten to the punch
Na nana booboo, stick your head in doodoo.
for other more important reasons, such as the following:
1) who he coaches for
Doesn't Meyer have a pretty decent looking daughter. I'd make a comment about her rear area but I don't know if she is 18 yet.
So what is it about Urban Meyer that makes mgoblog turn into RCMB?
I know you're a Buckeye fan (or the weirdest contrarian Michigan fan ever), and you have a point about some people's Urb obsession, but you have to admit that if Brady Hoke were doling out nicknames to recruits based on the shape of their asses the Eleven Warriors message board would have some fun with it.
Totally true. But in fairness to OSU fans, they don't consider themselves to be above such things.
She's in college, so...
So... if he was telling a 17 year old girl that he likes her butt it would be a big deal, but since it's a 17 year old boy it's okay?
Let's not get overly PC here. it's a reference to athletic muscle and wider hips, for generating greater power.
don't trust a big butt and smile.
Hey now. There is nothing wrong with being an ass man.
Not sure if this thread is going assactly ass planned or not..so confused!!!
Hoke has mentioned in recruiting that he looks at a lot of shoulders and a lot of butts. Pretty common if you are looking at the frame of a player.
I was going to post this very thing. Butts are important yo.
I agree that it's a common practice for coaches to look for certain attributes in a player's build. There's a huge difference between that and calling a high school kid "bubble" as a nickname. That's just gross.
It finally makes sense.
The saying "Put a foot up your ass" was created by rex ryan and urbz.
It’s kind of weird but it’s the truth. You hear it a lot in O and D Lineman evaluations.
If this kid does commit to Ohio, LSU freak could create a creepy version of the hot tub scene from "Back to School". I'll keep it SFMK and just say "What's a hot tub without bubbles? Hey bubbles, get over here!". I miss Rodney.
Thought this was going to be about our early enrollee TE
I love this and hope more recriuts start blogging, or allowing themselves to be interviewed by bloggers on a weekly basis. Transparency in recruiting is great, and it could eventually force coaches to show more integrity when talking to players.
I want honest programs like Michigan to compete on a level playing field with those who cheat. Hoke doesn't lie, but he has to compete with programs that do. If enough recruits start talking about their experiences, it will put everything a coach says to players out there for everyone to see.
This could only help guys like Brady Hoke, and only hurt guys like Urban Meyer.
Dist-URB-ing...Get it?! Get it?!?
*hangs head in shame*
*mumbles* Sorry. Its just I'm shocked no one else has said it yet.
On a serious note. It is a little weird and I would find it offputting if a coach started using a nickname for me that referred to my rear end, whether it was meant as a compliment or not.
It seems to me nicknames like that are reserved for signifcant others and...that's about it.
When he moved to Columbus he had to go door-to-door telling everyone he was a pedarast
