Houston Chronicle Accidentally Burns Urban Meyer, Apologizes

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer took a dig at Alabama today when he disclosed the name of his team’s field goal return play. (It’s a reference to the 2013 Iron Bowl, in which the Crimson Tide found a way to fuck up a tie game with one second left in regulation, you see.) One employee at the Houston Chronicle wasn’t… »11/05/15 3:46pm11/05/15 3:46pm


Cardale Jones Didn't Know He Was Starting Until The First Series

The only meaningful bit of pregame intrigue surrounding Ohio State’s season opener against Virginia Tech was the question of who would be the Buckeyes’ starting quarterback. With Braxton Miller moving to receiver, the choice was down to J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones, and both were kept in the dark just as long as we… »9/08/15 10:35am9/08/15 10:35am

Urban Meyer's New Contract Has Some Massive Buyout Clauses

There doesn’t appear to be anything especially crazy in Urban Meyer’s new contract, but along with a salary bump that at least nominally makes him higher-paid than Jim Harbaugh, the coach of the defending college football champs locked in some nice buyout figures, should Ohio State decide to fire him before… »4/14/15 5:38pm4/14/15 5:38pm

Urban Meyer Is Still Insane For Tim Tebow And Won't Shut Up

Urban Meyer is delusional. The synapses in his brain are slowly failing to fire in the proper manner. Or maybe the aliens finally came for him. Those are the only explanations we can possibly give for why Meyer appears to be the last person on Earth who still thinks Tebow can make it in the NFL. Even worse, he doesn't… »7/29/14 6:02pm7/29/14 6:02pm

Urban Meyer's Former Florida Players Revel In His Failure

Auburn fans (and anyone who hates Ohio State) enjoyed Ohio State's loss to Michigan State in the Big Ten championship last night, foiling the Buckeyes' chance at a national championship. Others with a personal beef—such as, say, some of Meyer's former players and commits at Florida that remained while he left the… »12/08/13 10:00am12/08/13 10:00am

How Do Recovering Cheaters Comply With NCAA Regulations?

While the NCAA has a vested interest in keeping premier programs strong, the Urban Meyer hire at Ohio State may still have been disheartening to those in charge of keeping the school's football team in line. Five months after paragon Buckeye Jim Tressel resigned in the wake of a non-compliance scandal that vacated a… »10/13/12 6:15pm10/13/12 6:15pm

Michigan State Coaches Say Ohio State Gave Them Selectively Edited Game Tape

After Ohio State beat Michigan State today 17-16, the Spartans coaches' bellies ached loudly enough that reporters heard them and wrote that Michigan State's coaches were upset with Ohio State's coaches. Apparently the game film that Ohio State provided in advance of their game was not up to Big Ten conference… »9/29/12 9:47pm9/29/12 9:47pm

Gordon Gee, Ohio State's "Best Recruiter" Of Uncompensated Student-Athletes, Expensed $64,000 Over Five Years On Bow Ties

On August 1, The Toledo Blade published a story about Gordon Gee, Ohio State's president, and likely the most prominent university president in the country right now. The article says that Gee's enthusiasm for the Buckeyes extends to hands-on football recruiting: »9/29/12 10:00am9/29/12 10:00am
