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

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.
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!
A mid-day munch for you…
- Vince Dooley’s epitaph for Mark Richt: “And then the championship, and maybe some (Nick) Saban effect, who knows. People, maybe LSU is a little bit of a victim of that as well. Good programs with all the money in the world, and facilities, and yet this guy is winning championships, why can’t we? And of course tied in with that are the big salaries.”
- Bruce Feldman has an interesting theory as to why a political endorsement from Corch might mean more than one from Nick Saban: “I know some people can make a case for Nick Saban in Alabama or Jim Harbaugh in Michigan, but those guys work in states where they’re also very unpopular with a big chunk of the population because their schools’ arch-rivals — Auburn and Michigan State — are also in-state.”
- Because of a targeting call, North Carolina will have one of its top receivers out for the first half against Georgia in the opener.
- Jim Harbaugh likes Judge Judy.
- College football in Louisiana appears to be safe for the moment. Whew!
- “When did the sanctity of spring break become such a hallowed experience?”
- Tater Tot wants a Cinderella in the CFP.
You know, I’d be inclined to give Corch a pass on his latest bullshit…
“The early signing period,” Meyer said. “Why would you do that?
“I’m not a fan of that. You’re moving it just forward and forward, what if a kid wants to change his mind? (If) he wants to change his mind because of coaching changes or other circumstances, the player should be allowed to change his mind.”
… if he meant that kids could change their minds about signing in the wake of college football’s great tradition of coaching changes after signing day.
But we know it’s really about the current arrangement favoring the powerhouses. So I’ll stick with calling bullshit.
What a dazzling life Corch leads.
“I’ve been lucky to coach Alex Smith, who was the No 1 pick, [Tim] Tebow, Zeke [Ezekiel Elliott] … the Pounceys, all these great players,” Meyer said. “It’s hard for me not to say Joey is not the best I’ve ever coached or been around.”
Or he could just be suffering from a case of hyperbolic verbal diarrhea.
“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.”
Man, if you can’t enjoy the Ohio State meltdown after the loss to Michigan State…
Contrast that to the Buckeyes, who pointed fingers after the game.
Tailback Ezekiel Elliott saw his Heisman Trophy hopes get washed away on a 12-carry, 33-yard night. He did not mince words, saying: “The coaching staff didn’t put us in position to win. … I’m disappointed in the play-calling. … I deserve more than (12) carries, I really do.”
He topped it off by saying there’s “no chance” he will return for his final year of eligibility. Quarterback Cardale Jones tweeted the same message, saying this had been his final home game.
Earlier, when quizzed by reporters, Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer called it a “very poor performance”…
… there is something wrong with you.
