    Thanks Lebowski for the Title change. This way I can post all things tOSU and Urban related..
    I wonder if he told the players that in the spring, he's going to lock them in the practice facility and make them run until they puke as part of conditioning and if they don't like it, he'll let them out, but they'll be kicked off the team.

    Let the tally begin.

    In less than one month Urban has 1 player arrest and 2 player dismissals from the team.

    Interesting read on Urban's 1st meeting with the team. This is more interesting than the whole "No Tweet" topic.

    We say “until now” because a source tells us that by far the most-intriguing aspect of the meeting was Meyer telling the players that he believes many of them have a marijuana problem.

    “I’m not sure if this was something proven by tests or just something he was told, but (Meyer) told the guys he thought it was a widespread issue on the squad,” the source said. “He warned the guys that smoking weed (or doing any drug) was not going to be tolerated. He stood up there and basically said he knew it was going on and if it didn’t stop, guys would be booted from the program.
    http://ohiostate.247sports.com/Artic...-Edition-56268

    I like what he has done. The player arrested is gone along with another one (Tell me DDD: Did Urban kick players off the team in the past??)..

    So it looks like he has begun to take the steps needed to clear the team of these issues. As for the arrest. Puhlease.. To lay responsibility of this player on Urban is a little premature..

    What I would of disliked is if he would of let it go and continued to status-quo that Tressell had going for these kids.. Which allowed for such behavior to continue and be his downfall..

    I have a feeling this may not be the last player kicked off the team but we'll see.. When you have years of Tressell allowing such behaviors to go unchecked it won't be cleansed by 2 players being kicked off but I can only hope...


    DDD: Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones...


    EDIT:

    A preview of an interview done of Urban on BTN: Interesting quote I got from this preview was when Urban says, "We may see some former Florida players showing up in the spring at Ohio State to work out"....

    That will be interesting...

    I could be wrong about this, but something about that guy seems so disingenuous. Its almost as if he went out of his way to talk about his family just to prove to everyone that he isn't abandoning them. It seemed way over the top.

    Oh, so you were your son's football coach? Wait, so you just coached him? You actually recorded his every movement? And the refs let you on the field to record his every movement? Wow, father of the year!!

    You mean that whole retiring from a head coaching position because it was too hard on his family? And then logging six months of quality family time by working a travel-intensive tv analyst gig? Before accepting 4 mil a year to start coaching again?

    What a cynic. You make it sound as though his health wasn't a valid concern.

    Yeah... I can see that and in fact use/may still think of him as a used-car salesman myself.. Maybe it was because both schools (Utah and then Florida) had a direct impact on the schools I cheer for.. But, I am not worried about him and his effort at the PR relations thing... I am interested in wins and what he can do for tOSU.. Even if he is only here for a certain period of time.. I will enjoy what we get for now..

    Come on babs.. Do not make his TV gig out to be this big Travel intense type of job...

    His 2 daughters are off to College (Not home anymore). His Son will be around him on campus etc. So he will see him..


    I was shocked when he quit Florida.. Who knows why.. But a year sabatical may have been what he needed to get things straight and jump back into coaching.

    BUT.. I think he would not be coaching if THIS job had not come available. I see no other job out there that could of lured him back into coaching. So things worked out well for us and here's hoping he has a great run (However long it is..)..

    You are seriously trying to suggest that within a matter of eight months the kids aged enough to justify Urban's comically contradictory behavior?

    You should read ALL of what I wrote instead of just singling out on a little part of my full response and projecting what you think I was saying....

    Armani Reeves is now a Buckeye.. Nice get and I think tOSU getting his teammate may have made that possible..

    Reminds me of Troy Smith and Ted Ginn. Both came together even thought Ginn was the prize recruit at the time and Troy Smith had offers elsewhere...

    EDIT: Another nice article about Urban and his ability to recruit so well..

    First of all you need to get your information straight before you start lumping this under Urban or making such a statement that makes you look stupid.

    This kid verballed back in August and in reality he was not who tOSU wanted but based on the horrible recruiting year at that time, tOSU gave him an offer (Luke Fickell at the time) and he quickly accepted... THIS kid was part of the class WELL before Urban even was discussed as a replacement and Fickell was still talked about as the possible option. Urban more than likely never would of offered this kid a schollie in the first place.

    Second, is he coming to Ohio St.?? Urban found out before the news hit and told him he was not welcome and Roger's coach released a state that he was opening up his options to Ohio University, Bowling Green etc.....



    First verballed:
    http://www.ourhonordefend.com/2011/0...oger-lewis.php

    Report he was opening up his options (Says it based on Academic but everyone around C-Bus knows why he is actually looking.. Urban took his schollie away):
    http://www.buckeyextra.com/content/s...l-recruit.html


    Get your shit straight next time DDD... And don't forget that Glass house you live in (BYU gang rape.. Eric Wright of USC (Rape), Hershel Dennis (Drugged girl who was then gang raped).. I could go on..)

    Oh, no! I feel dumb. So he raped a girl and was arrested and then booted out of the recruiting class by Urb, but wasn't originally contacted by Urb. Glad we cleared that up.

    Urb's body count so far:

    3 player dismissals
    2 arrests (DUI, rape)

    His first season hasn't even started yet. Like I said, this stuff writes itself.

    Nice Q&A: The talk of him revamping the Offense and Defense entirely and the fact he is now going to play the best players and not red-shirt at all if they are good enough just makes me giddy..

    Q:In your experience, and understanding every player is different, how long does it take players with that talent level to make an impact on the field?


    UM: We're going to rotate them right away. We don't redshirt here at Ohio State. We're changing that up. We're going to have the culture out here that there's no redshirting. If you don't play here, it's because you're not good enough. It's not because we're holding you back. We're going to recruit the kind of player where we want them on the field right now. That's the approach we took at Florida, and it's the approach we're going to take here.
    Q: What are the priorities now for you over the next month or so before spring practice begins?


    UM: We have a bunch of new coaches, a completely new offensive scheme. So the next month, the priority is to get around our players, get to know them with the new coaches. And No. 2 is to install an offense and defense, and make sure everybody is on the same page, so when we hit March we're up and running.
    Q: What kind of reports have you gotten from strength coach Mickey Marotti on how offseason workouts are going?


    UM: Good. But we haven't really hit it hard yet. We've been kind of introduced to our offseason program. I meet with Mickey nonstop. Constant evaluation. But so far, it's mostly just been indoctrination. On Monday, it starts for real.

    I guess Beliema has been very vocal about Urban and even used words like "illegal" etc and through a hissy fit when Dodson flipped to us. What he fails to understand is that Wisc. was out of it anyway. this came down to Ohio State and USC.

    But it didn't stop him from publicly throwing a temper-tantrum. It started to get legs and add to an already frenzied media about Urban and the idea of getting a former SEC coach in the Big 1G..

    To futher add fuel Biliema and Urban were speaking today at a Ohio HS Coaches clinic here in Columbus today..

    I guess Urban let him know that his bitching wasn't going to stop him and his staff..

    Needless to say, be brought it.

    Meyer was speaking to a packed house of high school coaches from around the state of Ohio. Also a few college coaches, like Darrell Hazell and Marcus Freeman.

    All of Meyer's assistant coaches were sitting up front as he spoke on "performance excellence." I promise you every coach in that place went home with a new idea of how to coach players and get the best from each guy on the roster.

    Meyer apparently heard the complaining from Bret Bielema and Mark Dantonio. He had this to say during this morning's clinic:

    "You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," he said motioning to his assistants in the front of the room.

    "Do it a little harder next time."

    Meyer also said that they passed on an out of state WR "at the last second" because his last step is out of bounds. They want guys who finish hard.
    http://forums.the-ozone.net/messages/291990.html



    Passing on the Out of state WR leads many to think he was talking about Neal.. Urban has set his sights on Diggs for sure...




    Many blogs messageboards etc have been lit up over the spat now. Specially since Biliema is truly a hypocrite in his attempt to get Urban to back off.. . I love it. I have always hated Biliema and I look forward to the angry Urban unleashing on him next year...

    LOL. This cracked me up..

    Michigan State now jumping on the anti-Urb bandwagon. In essence it seems that the coaches are complaining that Urb didn't stop recruiting kids once they committed to a different school. Not sure that argument is going to go anywhere.

    Utes, we should all adore Pope Urban and also the Tide. We are a part of that history, we have a piece of that Rock. God bless Pope Urban and Alabama.
