    Urban Meyer is a lot of bad things. But I agree with CA and 81 that he's a good analyst.
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    I can't honestly weigh in...I turn him off when I see him. Probably petty on my part, but I just can't let that clown command my TV.

    I thought his year away, and his Alabama-ND pregame stuff was awesome work. I think a lot this particular instance stems from not wanting to be a famous sound bite on Colin’s Circus of Fools. More or less he doesn’t want to be associated with the likes of Rob Parker.

    As long as he is talking about football, I will listen. When he starts talking about other things, I tune him out. As a football analyst he has an opportunity to educate the masses as long as he doesn't allow himself to make the mistake that so many others make - talking to the least informed of his audience. By spending time explaining things that any football fan should already know, these guys can make listening to them during games unbearable.

    Do what Romo did - explain what you see and how you expect things to play out. Point out variations in formations and personnel groupings, and how those things dictate how the opponent responds. Let's talk about chess, not checkers.

    I have nothing good to say about the guy

    Yeah the Friday 5:00 news dump doesn’t make him look very good. At all.

    If it turns out that that's legitimate, and that UM did in fact intend to spread statements about us that he knew to be untrue at the time he intended to spread them, simply to gain a recruiting advantage, I will change my stance.

    He will go from a good football mind with character flaws to an unmitigated scumbag whose every utterance is subject to scrutiny that would make the combination of a colonoscopy, endoscopy, and an IRS audit would look like a nod in the hallway between two passing office workers.

    If true, he will join my Arya Stark list -- Fulmer, Dickey, Johanneigmeier, Kramer, Adams, Sanford, Martin, Smith, Locke, Jelks, Frost, Dye, Housel,...and Meyer.

    On that list, probably to my own eternal detriment, I don't forget for one nanosecond, and I will never forgive in 10,000 eons.

    UM... I disapprove of him about at much as I can, with a person I don't know personally.

    He appears utterly self serving and without scruples to me.

    Since this is being reported as part of the released investigation information from OSU, it may very well be legit. I don't really know the guy tweeting it out, but he has to know that he will be exposed as a fraud if it is wrong, so it is probably legit.

    No matter his intent (as a joke or a true effort to deflect), this really changes nothing for me. Meyer has already shown us his character. This is certainly no worse that many of the other things that he has done.

    Great coach, horrible human being.
