NCAA Football 2018

I was going to start a post about Urban Meyer and Ohio State situation, but decided to name the thread as something different that will mostly be ignored all year.


Since I am in Columbus, my perspective is skewed, how big a story is this elsewhere outside the cult of OSU?

For those that don't know, Urban Meyer fired his WR coach after he became aware that the coach was charged with criminal trespass and harassing his ex-wife. It has since come out that he was abusive to his wife going back to 2009 when he was an intern for Meyer in Florida.

Being originally from Florida, Meyer's situation is certainly a big deal there, especially amongst us Gator fans. I appreciate the championships he gave us and is an amazing coach, but I've always found him to be kind of a self-righteous, absolutist jerk. The local media in Orlando, especially Mike Bianchi, always disliked him.

It's front page news on SI and on ESPN, so I'd say it's a big story.

Urban used The Blessings of Lord Tebow to paper over a lot of heinous shit that went down during his tenure there, up to and including the nefarious exploits of one Aaron Hernandez. This has been a long time a' comin' for him.

At this stage it's probably easier to ask which head coach of any football team isn't covering up for a wife-beater/rapist/pederast on his staff, or among the players. Just the way it is, and probably always has been, because creating a winning team in this world means turning a wilful blind eye to the activities of highly-skilled individuals who have absolutely rotten personalities.





Well you know, just because these young men have little education and live in squalor, it doesn't entitle them to commit antisocial behaviour and get away with it.

For what it’s worth, it’s news on TSN.ca.

Also, fuck the NCAA. When the CHL treats players better than you, you are doing something wrong.

We just lost to Kentucky.

Forget the loss to Georgia Southern in 2014. THIS is us at rock bottom. The Kentucky streak was the last little thing we had to hold onto. Tonight, that wasn’t merely ended. It was crushed.

Our program needs some serious rehabilitation. We are so far from what we were 10 years ago that one could write an award-winning thesis on it.

Well, not surprised, but Urban is "retiring" from coaching after the Rose Bowl.

After the stories started about his health, I would have been more surprised if he stayed. But they say he is retiring from Coaching, but he is in his mid-50s so unless he is really struggling with his health, I doubt he is done, the question would be, what school can woo him back?
