Urban F. Meyer (THE CLOSER)

    There's another one circulating that Urban's agent/PR guy jumped ship during the summer ZS crap.

    IMO, we'll see this kind of garbage reporting, a bad combination of click vultures and folks trying to get a rise..... phone contact or email or messages..... from tOSU staff and admins who are focused on destroying UW and recruiting, as they should be.

    Right now, tOSU has had its say about Meyer's exit and we have a post-season win to nail down, recruiting to do, and a program to run...... JUST LIKE EVERY YEAR.

    Screw the noise. Beat Washington. Stay hot on the road. Go Buckeyes. The word at WHAC should be don't feed the trolls.

    I've always thought that the Meyer story, particularly the OSU era, should be a movie. Now I'm convinced of it. Title?

    "Urban Meyer and the Buckeye Rebirth". Jeff Snook should write it. :urban2:

    Bleacher Report is owned by CNN.

    You or I could write for Bleacher Report.

    It's not exactly a high standard of journalism :slappy:

    Read this yesterday and was pretty entertained by the fact that they had to make a negative post against many positive post. Surely it was to be an ‘outside the box’ article to get clicks. I wouldn’t be surprised if Urban takes another job in a couple years but I think he has learned his mistakes by now of loyalty.

    Like the Athletic Director...

    "Meyer isn’t quite sure yet, although he’s spoken with OSU athletic director Gene Smith about a role mentoring coaches and athletes at Ohio State"

    Pity Gene still has a job after all this =/

    There are three people that presently or previously lived in Florida and wrote for major news organizations that covered Florida sports (the 3Ms): Matt Hayes, Mike Bianchi, and Mike Freeman.

    All three had expressed vitriol towards Ohio State during Tressel's tenure, or at Urban for his tenure at Florida, or both. Freeman in particular was public enema #1 15 years ago because he thought 2002 Miami was the greatest team in the history of college football and they were robbed by Ohio State and Terry Porter.

    This article referenced was written by Matt Hayes, once a nationally syndicated columnist for the Sporting News that was laid off two years ago and now is a senior editor for Bleacher Report, which is a CNN property. Matt Hayes does not, and has not ever, written fact-based news stories. He writes op-eds.

    He's a bitter, cynical cock sucker with an axe to grind because he hasn't liked Urban for ten years as a Florida grad. Take that for what it's worth.

    Not to get political, but this is symptomatic of all modern news outlets today. It's universal... whether it's CNN or FOX or ABC or Yahoo! Sports. People don't differentiate between news and op-ed anymore, because news orgs themselves no longer pretend to differentiate between content that is news vs op-ed. Maybe news desks never did. Hell, maybe we're all just dumber in the Internet age.

    I dunno. I never needed my hand held if I got triggered by Dear Abby giving bad relationship or medical advise in her syndicated column in the 80s, because I knew exactly what her column was before I read it.

    Yeah, my point was really that it was marked "analysis" and not "news."
