    I sure wasn't one of them. I said, "Whenever Tressel leaves, I want THAT guy to coach the Buckeyes."

    I think you're right, Nigel. I was not enthusiastic because of the disciplinary problems and off-field issues at Florida combined with his unclear medical issues, resignation, return, and resignation. The nature of his intracranial cyst was not really clear at that time, at least to me. As he recovered during his year with ESPiN, it became clear that he was a very different person to the way he was betrayed and that his buyout clause mentioning Ohio State was more than words. I think opinion here changed very quickly then, at least as I remember it.

    I was (and still am - even moreso now) ok with the players he recruited at Florida, if for no other reason than it changed the type of player he recruited when he got here. He was no longer willing to take as many (or any) questionable-character guys. When Meyer was at Florida, his mentality was to win at all costs and he got some guys who were straight up thugs. NFL talent-thugs, but thugs nonetheless. As his time at UF came to a close, and for a few years after, well, we all know the story. It made the school look bad & it made him look bad. I think Urban reflected upon this when he started here and made a change in his approach to recruiting. tOSU football program is in a better place because of it, and I for one, am grateful to him.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    I agree with all of that. Clearly, he learned something during his time at Florida and fundamentally changed how he recruited and how he dealt with off-field incidents. Anyone who can look at the Robie and Hyde cases, and say he was running the same kind of program that he ran at Florida can fuck all the way off.

    Agree. That’s why I give pause to some of the losses..he liked not having a 3 am phone call.

    A while back, Zach Smith had Philly Brown on his podcast as guest. Since Philly was there during the transition of Tress-Fickell-Urban, Zach asked what he thought of Urban and his staff coming in. Philly kind of chuckled and said rather that he hated all of them. He went on to explain that under Urban's regime, everyone was terrified to make any mistakes; that Urban was so intense that it scared guys into performing better. Looking back, I'm pretty sure this applied both on the field as well as off of it.

    Clown show was Meyer’s description of the WRs. I’ll bet none of those guys took that well. It might have eventually scared them into performing better, but I’ll bet initially it scared them in a manner that made the clown show worse.
