OT: So I was at an event with Urban last night

Submitted by IUandUofM on June 17th, 2012 at 12:28 PM

There was a charity event last night in Columbus that during a pre-party, Urban Meyer showed up.  We were unknowingly 15 feet from him for 20 minutes, until he was recognized by a speaker.  There was no entourage, nor were people flocking to him after the announcement.  He just was like everyone else.  

Given the event purpose, I resisted making any Michigan comments to him directly (which my wife strongly insisted I refrain from), but I did give him a good ol' fashioned "Go Blue" glare as we past him on our way out.

Walking through the fountain, spinning the cube and even the first time I was safe to step on the M in the Diag. I must've missed the seminar where they taught this. Just because he's the coach of the rival team doesn't mean you should act douchey toward him in public. Hold yourself to a higher standard. This is Michigan.

My favorite michigan joke:  ' how do you know someone graduated from the University of Michigna?'  -  don't worry, they will tell you.

 

The first time I heard that joke I laughed so hard I spewed beer everywhere;  Cause that is me!  I walk around school making fun of the spartan teachers, high fiving the wolverine ones, and telling the kids that I graduated from the greatest university known to man!!!

 

Its great to be a michigan wolverine!!!!

I was on a rooftop with 3 former Michigan State Basketball players this weekend.  Should I have started a post about it? Please Advice.

(Yep, bringing back the "Please Advice" meme)

who didn't go to ND, but it was his favorite school and he talked about them incessantly - he may have been the biggest jerk I've ever known, and quite the kiss-ass to boot.

So I have that going for me...

Why did you refrain? He willingly joined this rivalry and everything with comes with it, Including the many random "Go Blue" chants. Was your wife afraid it would be detrimental to his health or something?

Why are women so opposed to their husbands acting like complete douches in public? I mean, be proud that he feels the need to embarrass you and himself just to make a stupid comment to a guy who he has never even met. Broads are so silly sometimes.

Several years ago (2008)I was at Gator's Bar on St. John's pass in St. Pete. I was waiting my turn to get urinal access and everyone was buzzing that Urbs was in the building. I didn't really pay attention and went in to take aleak. I notice the guy beside me is writing something on the wall above his urinal (people sign the walls for some reason) and it was old Urbs himself...pissing right beside of me and signing his name. I shook, zipped and as I passed I gave him a "Go Blue!". He just laughed. We had just beat them in the Gator bowl the year before. Looking back now that is priceless since he is now at Ohio.

I would of said something and introduced myself.  He is a human being too, who da funked it.  He may have really enjoyed the encounter with UofM fan giving him a little shit, but then talking to him like a real person.  

Every CFB coach has a little sleeze and slime to them, but we, UofMers think ours are a little less than the others.  That is a delicate duplicity that I come to realize in my years on this earth is something you live with and hope for the best.  Meyer has his faults and may prove to be the slimy SEC coach we think he is or could be.  He may suprise us though, and may help create a ten year war for our generation that stirs our imagination and fires the rilvary to a better place than has been for years.
