I'm not sure why he would want to rub it in Meyer's face, play against his best friends, and play for his favorite team's rival.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||Only two college football||
Only two college football coaches have a higher winning percentage than Meyer (Knute Rockne and Frank Leahy) and he has two national championships to his name. He is absolutely "that great" of a coach.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Regarding coordinators surviving coaching changes||
Urban Meyer has retained the defensive coordinator at every school he has coached at (Fickell, Charlie Strong <Who had like 30 titles at Florida>, Kyle Whittingham, and Tim Beckman). Half of them have gone on to be damn good head coaches.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||The referee was wrong||
Therefore Meyer is an asshole
|2 years 17 weeks ago||This sounds like||
The beginning on the ONANNCAA
|2 years 24 weeks ago||I think the number is||
20 or something close to that. We have 5 verbals so far.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||He does more||
Than go to a party/bar here and there (He'll actually go to a bunch in one night) to interact with students.
I have no idea why he would tweet that, but I would assume it's because he's a busy guy who lost track of his schedule. He probably likes people to think he gets to the game an hour early to cheer and w/e when the reality is he probably shows up whenever he can and stays for as long as he can. It is, however, quite entertaining.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Meyer's past||
What's that? Winning everywhere he goes and recruiting elite players?
|2 years 25 weeks ago||I don't know||
I think that the biggest reason the students love him is the guy is everywhere. I don't know how many other university presidents show up at house parties or bars.
He did go out and hire Urban Meyer, so I don't think there will be much drop in football.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||He isn't good with sports stuff||
He is the CEO of a university system with a 5.2 billion dollar budget. He is universally loved by the ~55,000 students. He has spearheaded fundraising 1.6 billion dollars since coming back to OSU. He is the highest paid public university president, and he is widely considered to be one of, if not the, best. People who think he should have been fired for the Tressel stuff have no idea what they're talking about. Who cares. It's just football.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||OSU||
Has first class facilities and a great coach. They've been a sleeping giant in basketball for longer than Michigan has.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Duke||
I'll bet he ends up at Duke after Coach K. It's one of the best jobs in CBB and it will open before any comparable job in the Big Ten.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Fragel and Simon||
Had amazing games against Michigan State and Nebraska respectively, and those are the two OSU games Steele is most likely to have watched.
|2 years 43 weeks ago||Bob Stoops||
Is a defensive coach
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Ohio State's||
Top two running backs are injured. Jordan Hall has missed the last two games with a foot injury and might be back this week while Carlos Hyde sprained his MCL early against UCF.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||People||
Talk about Bowden that way because he hung on for about ten year too long.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||The Big Ten||
Is pretty clearly better than or just as good as all non SEC conferences.
The Big 12 is about the same as the Big 10 and might be better in the long run with the addition of WVU, but it's close.
Pac 12: Oregon and USC are awesome, but what's after that? A Stanford team that beat SJSU by 3? A Washington team that beat San Diego State by 9? Utah? Cal? Ya, no......
ACC: Come on. Florida State is theoretically an elite team. Theoretically. Clemson? EDSBS fans know what to say here, or you could just reference last year's Orange Bowl. Virginia Tech is the ultimate paper tiger.
The whole SEC >>>>>>>>> Slow white kids from the Big Ten is so overplayed. The SEC owns everyone. Not just the Big Ten.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||That's a pretty serious overstatement||
He isn't going to start, and I doubt he is the first linebacker off the bench.

Great articles and player rankings.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||In what world||
Is 14/31, 188 yards, 2 TDs, and 4 interceptions better than 85/157, 1159 yards, 13 TDs, and 4 interceptions?
|3 years 2 days ago||I suspect||
Ezekiel Elliott (RB) will be OSU's highest rated offensive player by NSD. Between that and having Rod Smith (RS Soph), Dunn, and Ball on the roster running back probably has more depth than any unit other than the defensive line.
|3 years 4 days ago||I doubt it||
Penn State only has a few players who could come and start for a team like OSU right away, and most play positions where the Buckeyes are especially strong. No senior is going to want to transfer from one bowl ban to another anyway.
I would bet most PSU transfers end up in the MAC or Big East.
|3 years 1 week ago||Weeden did not||
Quite do the same thing. He (And Joe Bauserman) both retired from baseball after flaming out in the minors; they just enrolled in college not right out of HS.
|3 years 1 week ago||And that||
He's from Ohio and his first college coaching job was under Earl Bruce at Ohio State.
|3 years 1 week ago||Seriously?||
"But he was WILDLY inaccurate, more-so than young Denard ever was on his worst day, injured even"
Denard Robinson freshman stats: 14/31, 188 yards, 2 TD, 4 ints
Did you watch any of that?
|3 years 2 weeks ago||Even though||
There isn't as much talent the offensive line should play better than last year. Playing in a spread offense instead of telehraphed run, telegraphed run, play action on third and long Bollman nightmare last year is a massive plus. I don't think they'll be great, but it should be a decent unit. The problem is they can't sustain more than one serious injury AT ALL.

Has been dismissed from the team.
“The charges filed against Storm Klein violate the core values of the Ohio State Football Program,” Meyer said in a statement. “As a result, Storm has been removed from the team. It has been made very clear that this type of charge will result in dismissal. If there are any changes in the charges, we will re-evaluate his status.”

Rodman was ever underrated as a rebounder by anyone who knew what they were talking about. He did lead the NBA in RPG seven years in a row.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||With basically a full class||
50% > 36%
|3 years 3 weeks ago||Offensive line||
Is the biggest priority for Ohio State over the next couple of months. Our major targets have already committed elsewhere, but thankfully there is still a year of HS football to be evaluated and 8 months between now and signing day to try and flip whoever.
