How does he think they got there in the first place?

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you:

… Cell phones and iPods are the biggest stumbling blocks to creating chemistry, he said, because they hinder the interaction between the players.

“Throw your iPod on, come in [to the locker room] bopping your head. Put on your equipment, go out to practice,” Meyer said. “Come in and throw on your iPod, punching your cell phone, text people and leave. How are you going to develop any chemistry on the team?

“You see it every day. Just go walk on campus. You see these white things stuck in peoples’ ears, and that means, ‘I don’t have to talk to you.’ “

    Pot meet Kettle. Isn’t this the same guy who singlehandedly got texting banned as a recruiting tool? He wasn’t hating on technology when it was convenient to his own agenda. Yeah, urban’s all about cultivating relationships. LOL! I guess that’s why he has such an affinity for lying to recruits (cough*Omar Hunter, et. al*cough). Do gaytor fans seriously believe this drivel?

    You took the words right out of my mouth, uh off my finger tips… You know what I mean. I was thinking the exact same thing while reading the post. Maybe that’s why ‘Ol Urb refused to the let the o-linemen transfer. He wanted to build a relationship with him. It had nothing to do with satisfying his own agenda. RIIIIGHT!!

    C’mon guys. They’re there because they are the top 1% of 1%.


  4. Does Tebow even use a cellphone anymore?

    I assume he communicates via mental telepathy.

    Urban Meyer communicates through sign language.

    Unfortunately, he’s only gotten “point & stare” down at this time.

    Do as I say, not as I recruited you…

    I’d say this’ll catch up with him but there seem to be a few teflon program out there.. (UF, tOSU, USC)


  8. You can’t force chemistry………it either develops or doesn’t. Him trying to force them to “form” chemistry will certainly not work. What a tool.
