Corch, I find your faith disturbing.

Tim Tebow, a GPOOE™ for the rest of civilization.

The next thing you know, Meyer’s going to have a copy of the promise plaque installed on a wall at The Shoe.

You’d think the Buckeyes could find somebody of their own worthy of inspiration.  Besides, didn’t Tebow beat Ohio State to win a national title?

If you’re gonna be snarky, at least bring the good stuff.

Mike Bianchi, still showing the love for Corch:

Now that the Florida Gators have named their football field after Steve Spurrier, what are they going to name after Urban Meyer – the UF player interrogation room down at the Alachua County Jail?

The correct answer is Seat 37F.

Corch is such a kidder.

Your amusing recruiting story of the day:

That was highlighted for Judson on his next and last trip to Ohio State. While walking with four-star safety Richard LeCounte III, now a Georgia commit, Judson explains how Meyer approached both recruits and initially didn’t know who Judson was:

“Long story short, I was walking in the hallway about to go to the indoor field and work out. He was like, ‘Hey.’ I looked around. ‘Come here.’ He was like, ‘How you doing, you like your visit?’ I said, ‘Yeah.’ Then he’s like, ‘What up Richard LeCounte? Are you showing this guy (Judson) around?’ I was like, ‘Coach, I’m showing him around.’ He asked me, ‘Who are you?’ I told him Bruce. He said, ‘Oh, Bruce Judson from Florida. The speedy guy.’ I was like, ‘Yeah.’ He said, ‘I’m glad that you’re on board and glad you got up here.’ After that, I knew I was de-committing.”

LeCounte corroborated Judson’s story to SEC Country, though he thought it might have been a joke and Meyer purposefully didn’t recognize Judson because he had on a dark blue shirt (Michigan colors). But Judson claims this was no laughing matter, and it’s hard for anyone to miss his trademark mustache.

“We had met face-to-face before at a satellite camp,” Judson said, “so he should have known who I was, especially with me being a commit.”

Two things here.  One, it looks like Urban Meyer has his Paul Johnson-ish moments of not reading recruits very well.  And, two, never disrespect another man’s mustache.

Mistakes were made. But not by Corch.

If you’re Urban Meyer, you’re stung by the accusation of a recruit who claims to have been “treated like crap” by you on a recruiting visit and you feel the need to respond, how do you proceed?

This is how you do it.

But when asked about Young’s comments Tuesday, Meyer seemed displeased with how his staff handled the 6-foot-7, 270-pound’s recruitment rather than the player himself.

“Sure I can (comment), they’re signed,” Meyer said. “I did read it. We had a lot of respect for him as a player. A lot. I was very disappointed in our staff that we didn’t offer him earlier.

“About treating him bad, we don’t do that on purpose. If that’s his feelings. I went back and talked to our staff about it, because I don’t want that to be out there.

“But when you have one out of 650 that say someone is treated bad, you know? We didn’t offer him earlier, but we did want to offer him. Afterward, he really grew on me. He’s a great player and I think we missed on him early on, and I was very upset with our coaching staff, the recruiter and that area and the position coach.

Notice the word “me” missing there?  Just to refresh

I went up and said, ‘Coach (Meyer), what was the reason that you all of a sudden offered me?’ He said, ‘We looked at your tape, and it was pretty good and I saw interest in that.’ I said, ‘Well coach, back when I was just committing to Kentucky and keeping my options open, I came up to a camp and sent you my film and everything, and you didn’t even reply. It seemed like y’all just deleted it.’

He said, ‘Well, if you look back at that time, you were how big?’ I said, ‘6-7, 270, just like I am now.’ He said, ‘Well, you were an insubstantial tackle, an insubstantial player,’ so he was saying I (didn’t) even amount to being able to be recruited by Ohio State as a four-star tackle. He said, ‘Now what offers did you have?’ I said, ‘I had my one from Kentucky,’ and he said, ‘Well, you were an insubstantial player with insubstantial offers from an insubstantial school.’  [Emphasis added.]

The best thing about this is the local media giving Meyer a pass here because he didn’t criticize the kid.  Gotta love that.

‘Well, you were an insubstantial player with insubstantial offers from an insubstantial school.’

If you love unflattering stories about Urban Meyer, then you’ll enjoy this one.

Coming soon, to a Gwinnett County high school near you

Maybe Kirby Smart can chime in with a “We’ll handle it. And it’s going to be a big deal.” about this.

If that doesn’t work, they can always try going back to the General Assembly again.  Gotta keep that playing field level, boys.

Big Ten’s shit gettin’ real, man.

Boy, this is guaranteed to send Greg Sankey over the edge.

Although it would be worth the price of admission to find out if Corch still has a grudge against certain members of the Florida media.  And vice versa.  Seat 37F rides again, baby!
