This is how we motivate fans in an era when TV calls the shots.
Believe it or not, those were back-to-back in my Twitter feed this morning.
I think I’m gonna roll over and go back to sleep now.
Urban Meyer’s reaction upon learning that Alabama’s been bringing in former players to practice on the scout team, and that it’s a perfectly legitimate thing to do under NCAA rules…
… basically boils down to “why didn’t I think of that first?”.
Jim Harbaugh, you’re trying too hard, fella.
Corch will tell you it’s not that big a deal.
Plenty to nosh on this morning…
Shades of “And it will forever be in the mind of Urban Meyer and in the mind of our football team. … So we’ll handle it. And it’s going to be a big deal.”
Perhaps the juiciest storyline of Big Ten Media Days on Tuesday was some heat between Penn State and fellow East Division rivals Ohio State, Michigan State and Michigan that emerged after a reporter asked both Mark Dantonio and Urban Meyer about supposed negative recruiting allegations Nittany Lions coach James Franklin had made last month in the Reading Eagle.
Meyer’s answer: “Absolutely not. That’s the first I’ve ever heard of that. That’s a pretty strong allegation. I will address that with coach Franklin.”
Oh, I just bet he will.
Friendly advice to Coach Franklin: you’d best be keeping an eye on Ohio State’s second half timeouts in your game this year.
Also, you might want to warn your AD to STFU about the same.
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?
