Urban Liar

Color me shocked, shocked by this:

During a conference call this week previewing the Playoff final, Herbstreit said generating a false sense of an elite team being undersold is nothing new, in fact, former coach and three-time national champion Urban Meyer used to do it all the time, he says.

“Every coach in the country looks for an angle,” Herbstreit said. “We’ve been doing this a long time and Chris (Fowler) and I used to laugh — Urban Meyer in ’06 used to make stuff up. Just throw it out on their hotel meeting rooms and somebody would say something and he’d say ‘Just put it on Herbstreit or ESPN or whatever.’ But it would be a fake quote just to get his team mad.”

It would have been a lot more impressive if Herbie had called Corch out on his bullshit.  Shockingly so, even.

    There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that Urban Meyer fornicates with sheep.

    I hope he worked this into the syllabus for his OSU ethics course


  3. I hate Urban Meyer because Mark Richt was sincere and UM is an insufferable dousch. Be that as it may, UM went to the PT Barnum school of public relations. No such thing as bad publicity.


  4. Agent Herbstreit has some playful photos of the three of them together in the same buckeye barn….so, it is true….

    Top 1% of the top 1% bullshitter, IMO.

    Attributing comments to Herbie that weren’t his, may have been the cause of Herbie having to retreat to Nashville…

    The Enabler In Chief of two football programs. Some legacy you got there Urbie.

    Urban makes up quotes from media people to motivate his team.

    Urban, responding to documented facts published in the media: “They made it all up! They’re out to get me!”

    Urban Meyer is a steaming hot pile of shit. To any shit I may have offended, I apologize.

    call it what it is … an urban myth.

    So Herbie allowed ESPN to put sports “news” on the air he personally knew to be false. This says a lot about Kirk Herbstreit’s integrity or rather lack thereof.
