"Meyer didn't even raise his voice here; his "threat of violence" was phrased as a hypothetical from the start. And this reporter basically deserves his chewing out."
You couldn't be more wrong about this. The reporter did nothing wrong. The quote was accurate, it was buried in a larger story about the Gators offense transitioning to more of a pocket passing game. The problem was that the quote got pulled out of the story and splashed all over the place.
Meyer came across as a boorish bully with no self-control. Your suggestion that is was 'theoretical' threat of violence is laughable. Since when does veiling a threat in a pretend scenario make it okay? Meyer did more than that, he threatened the reporters livelihood by threatening to block them from access.
Bottom line: Urban Meyer is a dick. Don't side with dicks.

Some people got bent out of shape when RichRod left WVU and held a very public grudge. This is in no way similar to a guy who disgraced himself by repeatedly BREAKING RULES and bringing two programs under NCAA investigation. Indiana is a smouldering ruins because of him.

Mallett wanted to play in a pro style. He only signed with Michigan because he was the promised 'heir' to Henne. As soon as Mustain left Arkansas, it was over.

Best tag eva.
Rich Rod has a SIX year contract. He ain't going nowheres. He was sweet wicked at WVU and will be more so here. Just needs time and playas.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Vincent Smith||
Vincent Smith needs more carries. How he made 4 yards out of nothing is sheer ridiculousness.
Ditto on the Brown comments. He can jet, but always goes down on first contact. Always.

This burns my eyes.
I wouldn't pile on Williams too bad. That offense puts you in 1/1 binds a lot. Despite Juice's inconsistency and flaws as a passer, he is a crazy skilled athlete.
If GRob is really coaching safeties now, could be a major staff reshuffle coming up. Hobson's inside backers have been awful.

Loved the podcasts. It kills me that these callers keep referring to things that happened TWENTY YEARS AGO, as if Michigan is McDonald's and football players are made on some magic assembly line like Big Macs.
Coaching transitions take time. They suck and they are awful but they take time.

I am steadfast in my faith in RichRod. It was peanut butter jelly time when he got hired, and nothings changed. No coach (Not even Bo) could erase the lack of depth, experience, and problems at QB that have affected this team.
There is a silver lining in this black cloud - Mgoblog has never been better. The flames of adversity make the steel stronger, or something like dat.

Oh man. 17-3 would be great. Seriously. Stayed close. Scored. That's more than one can hope for.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||1st Team||
1st Team All Name team already. Pearlie Graves. Early Grave. Pearly Gates. So much material to work with....
|5 years 19 weeks ago||I Hate Reading These....||
Uggghhh. So painful. IMHO Warren is hurt. He was not getting tested like this earlier.
Shafer has called some headscratchers. I recall a 3 man rush against Wisky that let them stroll down the field late. Maybe picking a coach you never met ,based on a couple years at non-traditional powers is not such a hot hiring plan.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||So Ancient....||This OTL piece lost a lot of credibility when they asked Paterno if he sent a text to the team. As if. JoePa is older than dirt. He doesn't even own an internet.|
|5 years 33 weeks ago||No.||I are so sad.|
