But he wins.
wow, pretty damning evidence on the medical hardship deal.
Sounds like UCLA basketball, inmates running the asylum is never a good idea.
Which is why he is now at Ohio State.
But it does make you wonder what what will happen when the Buckeyes hit a rough patch.
I hope he breaks tOSU program as well.
This story didn't do it for me. Really it boiled down to the fact that he gave star players preferential treatment, covered up for the weed smokers on the team, and used medical hardship for roster clearing. I'm not saying it's right, but this seems pretty commonplace to me. Meh.
What it shows to me is that Meyer was able to win a lot of games with a once-in-a-generation QB/leader. Once Tebow departed and there was a leadership void, he did not have the stomach (or heart) to clean up the mess he had made on the team, so he jumped ship.
I think what gives it credence is that UF had so many off-field incidents over the past few years and that their on-field performance has been on a steep decline. Sounds like it was more than business as usual for major college football and, in this case, created a house of cards (similar to the ASU collapse mid-season last year that led to Erickson's firing).
This I agree with. Best line about Meyer's "medical condition" was that he came down with a severe case of MilesSabanitis.
No doubt his players had a rash of legal problems. Most, however, were pretty mild stuff like MJ possession and some DUIs. It's not like he was running a program like Baylor. :smile2:
I'll stick to Nick Saban and Les Miles as the reason why Urban checked out of UF.
I think that Urban Meyer hits a road bump fairly early on at Ohio State and the whole thing implodes rather quickly. I'm not a fan of how he handled the exit from Florida and I really don't like Florida.
I think what the piece makes the case for is not that Meyer flagrantly breaks NCAA rules but that the way he handles a program is not sustainable. Face it, the guy went 2 years at Bowling Green, 2 years at Utah and 6 at Florida. I'd say six would be close to a maximum before his act gets old.
Separate names with a comma.
