Did anyone else just see Corso say "fuck it" on live tv?

btalbert25's picture

You know it's going to be a good day of football when Corso drops the F bomb at the end of Game Day!  Probably the most hilarious headgear pick he's done. 

ColdBuckeye's picture

Corso's stock just went up for me; pretty funny

USAFBuckeyefan's picture

Heard it and this isnt the first time he's dropped the F bomb during gameday.  Gotta love live TV.  

LABuckeye's picture

Thanks for that. I wasn't paying attention to the TV. Just rewound the DVR. That was pretty funny.

LABuckeye's picture

Larry Lage, an AP reporter in Michigan, just tweeted "Spoke to Urban Meyer this morning and he politely declined comment on Ohio State."

btalbert25's picture

it is kind of interesting that when his name came out about Penn State, he issues a statement saying he's happy with ESPN.  All this stuff with Ohio State and no one has any comments or anything to say about it. 

LABuckeye's picture

There's a link to a Dispatch article in Buckshots. Apparently Lage wasn't the only one who asked and got that answer.

Bucks43201's picture

wanted to confirm what I thought I heard too. couldnt believe, but replaying it and watching Herbie's reaction says it all ...wow....and yes, Corso's stock just went up in my book, too

Fowler's head just dropped onto the desk too, that was hilarious. 

 

matti's picture

just saw corso did oops my bad on espn the smirk during it was awsome

USAFBuckeyefan's picture

Making him give that apology was weak.  

 

LABuckeye's picture

Trying to reduce their inevitable fine from the FCC.

LABuckeye's picture

Poor Corso just had to apologize.

matti's picture

second also u forgot fat

LABuckeye's picture

"I have not been offered any job and certainly have not accepted any job".???

LABuckeye's picture

ESPN outright asked him about it on the air. 

Cali Buck's picture

He kept that as vague as possible. I think he's in.

AngelHeartsBuckeyes's picture

Agreeing to terms in not necessarily being offered or accepting a job.

Just sayin'

Buckeye born and bred. Buckeye til I'm dead.

LABuckeye's picture

Yeah... it sounded to me like it was very carefully worded. 

LABuckeye's picture

Except the opening part where he said "There is no truth to that at all"

Bobcat04's picture

I mean, what's he gonna do?  Tell the world about back channel talks?  He has no school to piss off with this, so he can be as vague as he wants *cough*DickRod*cough*.  

onetwentyeight's picture

This is so Legalese. He never said if his LAWYER was offered anything or discussed anything or came to terms with anything. Remember what the speculation on these boards here was: the 2 ppl on that jet were his wife and Lawyer. So yes, nothing to see here folks, another canny Not-Denial by Urbz. 

SouthPlainfieldNut's picture

Who knows if it's true or not, but honestly fellas, do you actually think he's going to say that he's accepted a head coaching position while a head coach is still employed by the university? C'mon.

LABuckeye's picture

No... but is it not useful to mention on here for others not watching that he stated that?

SouthPlainfieldNut's picture

Of course it can be mentioned, that wasn't my point. My point was no one should take it seriously. It was a matter of days ago that we heard he had no interest in coaching at all and meetings with Arizona now suggest otherwise.

Bobcat04's picture

In other news, I freaking LOVE Denard.  He's good for AT LEAST 2-3 ridiculous bonehead picks a game.  Automatic.  Dude is fast, but he'll never be a QB.

yoderdame's picture

Wow, Denard throws a pick then wants ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with tackling the Defensive Lineman rolling towards him.

JakeBuckeye's picture

I'm as excited as anybody about Urban Meyer, but if Illinois pulls this out we control our own destiny in the Big Ten.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Well maybe not completely control our own destiny. We would just have to hope Wisconsin beats Penn State.

poop's picture

The Big Ten is gonna get crushed in the bowls this year. If OSU is the conference champ, it is officially a horrible conference.

poguemahone's picture

Honestly, it's a horrible conference, regardless of who wins it. Are you really that thrilled by the prospect of Wisconsin or Michigan State repping the B1G in the Rose Bowl?

Of course not. Either team would get run ragged by Oregon.

AngelHeartsBuckeyes's picture

Didnt Urban also say he had no intention of returning to college football and then met with Arizona the following week?

Why didnt ESPiN ask him about that?  Why no follow-up after his tOSU denial?

Pretty obvious what the underlying meaning is folks.

Buckeye born and bred. Buckeye til I'm dead.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Can anyone pls explain to me this Zook thing? Curious....

Bucksfan's picture

Wisconsin's defense might as well be Minnesota's out there.  Good for us.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Illinois came to play fellas. Can we stop talking about Urban for a few hours and support this year's team?

Matt's picture

So who is the most honored senior of 2011, i.e., the last senior announced at senior day?  Obviously, a no brainer:  Troy Smith in 2006, J-Lau in 2008, Cam Heyward in 2010 -- this year its Mike Brewster, by a mile.  Real question is who is announced second from last.  I'm going with Andrew Sweat.  And then do you go with Boom as 3rd from last, even in light of his transgressions off the field?  Or do you go with Shugarts, who, while perhaps unspectacular, never got into any trouble?  Will be interesting to see what they do.

AngelHeartsBuckeyes's picture

Offensive PI just robbed Zooker....

I just had an awkward stare down with a Wisky fan in the hotel lobby. Weird.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Breakawayspeed's picture

Yeah.  My wife is from Wisc. and we had an awkward staredown this morning too!

Breakawayspeed's picture

Illionis are keeping Wisconsin in this game.....damn them!  Notice how the Baggers aren't putting up huge rush numbers anymore unless its second tier teams.

BTW, just heard another clear F bomb picked up on air by the Illini coachs

rampageripster's picture

damn you fighting zookers you're ruining everyone's fun...

Cause I couldn't go for three

Bucksfan's picture

Can't believe that kid didn't catch that punt.  WTF, Illinois?!

BuckeyeChief's picture

That may be the worse punt ever.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

JakeBuckeye's picture

Ugh. Illinois is a combination of horrible and unlucky.

Bucksfan's picture

Sprinkle in a little of the Big Ten's worst refs while you're at it.

From Alligator Army:

I think what kind of unnerves me about this
Is that it’s Ohio State. They’ve been sort of intimately tied to the Gators’ success in football and basketball since 06, and I feel like the recent UF grads who were there when I was (2005-09) hold Ohio State as a sort of symbol. Of what, I’m not exactly sure. It’s sort of a mix between direspect, contempt, pity, inferiority, and fear.

But the idea that Urban would leave Florida and so quickly land at Ohio State sort of feels like we’re being dumped in favor of an old flame.

In all kinds of weather we'll all stick together

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Disrespect, contempt, pity, and fear is pretty much what I think about the entire state of Florida, so I suppose we're even.

Enjoy your squeaker with Furman, d-bags.

3-0 since the NCAA title game.

this is why you can't have nice things illinios

Cause I couldn't go for three

Bucksfan's picture

The Game is officially irrelevant.

Buckeyebrowny919's picture

it is ALWAYS relevant...winning these next 2 weeks can honestly redeem a season for me..i'm not exaggerating

I don't care.... I still fucking hate those peices of shit and it's still the best rivalry in sports

matti's picture

it is never irrelevant

poguemahone's picture

If Michigan plays like this next week, it ain't gonna be pretty for the Buckeyes

Buckeye Chuck's picture

The team Pelini coaches is looking against Michigan much like the teams Pelini played for.

Mikefletcher24's picture

It's all that matters, 11 scrimmages and 1 game...f Michigan

Buck_Michigan's picture

Let's hope the fact that Luke Fickel never beat UM as player doesn't mean he won't beat them as a the HC.  I'd love to beat the snot out Fatty Hoke...what's his deal with calling us Ohio and refusing to call us Ohio State....he does realize that Ohio is Ohio University doesn't he? 

2012 Beat Michigan Tail gate:  UFM:  "Let’s beat the sh*t out of Michigan, have a good night."

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Fickell was on the winning team once as a player (1994)--he made arguably the biggest play in that game, in fact.
