Urban Meyer to step down after Rose Bowl

  • Tue, Dec 4, 2018 7:51 AM

    Wow.

    Respect him for doing it. He looks like his brain is about to explode on the sidelines sometimes.

    Wow. 

    Why is this a wow? 

    I’m not surprised at all. It sucks. But it’s not a shock.

    That sucks. Urban is the man, gonna miss him on the sidelines.

    It is a shock when he explicitly came out 1-2 weeks ago and said he would be the coach next season.

    Thank you, Coach Meyer, and best of luck moving forward... 82-9 in seven seasons at Ohio State, with a 7-0 record against Michigan, three Big Ten titles and a National Championship...'nuff said...GO BUCKS!!!

    I thought he’d stay one more year, otherwise not a wow. I think it’s actually good timing to let a new coach start a new system with a new starting qb. Not sure why they didn’t interview anyone else though. Wonder How this will effect recruiting

    Next season schedule is fairy soft, so not bad timing to throw a new HC into the mix:

    No Power 5 opponents in the non-conference - all at home.  MSU/Wisky/PSU at home as well.

    I'm sure this has all been addressed before this was announced--I mean, after all, this IS The Ohio State University. IMO, this is why Ryan Day was the interim coach and not Wilson or Schiano (thank God), and this is also why he accompanied Coach Meyer on his recent recruiting trips.

    Ryan Day has a big time opportunity. He seems equal to the task. 

     

    Anyone surprised that Luke Fickell didn’t get the nod?

    Not at all. 

    The fact that they didn’t even hire anyone else tells you how much they think of ryan day as a coach. And that should excite everyone.

    Also, fuck espn. “Will he be remembered for his coaching success, or his scandal keeping a woman beater around too long?”

    fuck off espn. Not even15 min after he retires and you’re already playing to the SJW crowd. That’s why that station sucks.

    They're a fricking joke, along with Fox Sports--they lead in with "Urban Meyer, who was suspended three games to start the season..."--I mean, what the fuck!!! How about "Urban Meyer, three time B1G champion and 2014 NC winner..."...screw them all.

    Was this a serious question?

    I knew it was coming. Thanks for the ride Urb.

    Let's hope Day can keep the recruiting at the same level.

    Sucks but man it seemed obvious. Seemed like 4 out of 5 times the camera scanned to Urban that he was hunched over helping manage his pain/discomfort.

    We’re a pretty spoiled fan base. Hope Day tears it up.

    Thanks for everything, Urban.

    Listening to cris Carter, sounds like he was told by everyone to quit a month ago. Urban wanted to finish the season so he wouldn’t quit on the players. Sounds like a lot of people thought he would die on the field if he kept going out there. 

    Hope he gets right and can live a happy life.
