Video: Urban Meyer Brings Down the House with "Let's beat the shit out of Michigan"

By 11W Staff on November 23, 2012 at 7:42p

Speaking at Earle Bruce's Beat Michigan pep rally today, a visibly moved Urban Meyer drops a bomb on the crowd:

"There's a reason why you do what you do. These kids love this school. They love each other and we can't forget that. Let's beat the shit out of Michigan."

[H/T amk1616 for the video]

I've been so reluctant to come around to Meyer due to my previous deep seated hatred for 2006.  But this changes everything.  The man is all Buckeye.

i've felt the same way brotha. But he's our guy now and this man is all business.
Let's finish the season right tomorrow!

I've been there with you.  I've had a hard time deciding if he can be trusted... if his heart is truly with us.  I have ZERO doubts now.  This man is giving the Buckeyes his all!
I have goose bumps... the shakes... the sh*ts... you name it.  I can't wait for tomorrow and probably will not sleep more than two total hours tonight.  I am ready to explode!!!
Let's bring it tomorrow Bucks!!!  And we as fans better not letdown for a second in the 'shoe, either.

I'm right there with you on the sh*ts...literally.  I posted as much in today's Skull Session.

It is ironic that everyone in that room despised Urban 6 years ago, but he's home now.

He was just an Ohio boy born and bred, waiting for the chance to come home and lead his first love back to glory. I'm not even gonna try to wipe away the tears in my eyes right now.

This is one of those speeches that you will see on commercials in 60 years that everyone will recognize.  Legendary.  Go Get em, Bucks!

As long as Urbz was speaking figuratively, that was an awesome!
On the other hand, if the Buckeyes literally beat all of the massive amounts of the s--- that fill TTUN and TSUN, it would take about two million plumbers and a 270 hazmat crews to clean up the mess.

I can't believe that I hated this guy for 6 years! Wow

Two of my daughters were at UFlorida over the four years the Gators won the NC in football 2x and in basketball 2x, with two of those four wins against the Buckeyes. If I remember right, at least one time I referred to Urban Meyer as a "punk-ass bitch." This video is a testament to the redemptive power of sports. Even the most vile can be redeemed through the power of sports. Mr. Meyer has completed his redemption.

TBDBITLinWIScantSON's picture

Meyer, like most of us, comes by his Buckeye love honestly- by growing up in Ohio AS BUCKEYE FAN! Whereas Jabba utilizes the ulterior motive employed by any scUM fan in OHIO- being contrarian. *ichigan man my @ss. They can have that pile...

I love coach Meyer !

This morning I felt exhausted from hating all week.  Watching this has me back in the saddle.  That's why he's Coach!

Does anyone have a brick wall that needs running through?

I was thinking, "Good God, I would run through a brick wall for this man."  I can't imagine what it's like to play for him.

urban F*cking meyer
gotta love him...If it turns in to a blowout in OSU's favor, I support him going for 2 every time, but only because it's against the walmart wolverines of course.
go bucks!!!

OMG Gimme a helmet!!  I want to run down on the kick off and hit somebody as hard as I can.

Go Bucks!  Michigan sucks!

Beat the shit out of tsun Urban Meyer style. Whoop, whoop, whoop, it's Urban Meyer style! Dance like its hammer time. I love Urban Meyer style.

I have been thrilled all season with Urban and his obvious passion for the Buckeyes. That said, with all the recent talk of Tress being back in the 'Shoe with the '02 National Championship team, I started to miss him. I always loved JT and all he did for the program and, more importantly, HOW he went about it (Screw you, ESPN). But, seeing this video today made all those "what if" thoughts about Tressel disappear. There is, without a doubt, NO ONE who I would rather have as our football coach. This video embodies exactly why. UFM is a Buckeye for life and God help anyone tha tries to get in his way.
Beat M*chigan.

We can't stop here; this is bat country...

I love this man!!!!  He is going to have the Buckeyes ready to eat babies tomorrow and I can't wait to see them deliver a supreme ass kicking.  I want to see Nate Williams and John Simon meet at Deeeenard tomorrow during the first series that AACC has the ball. 
It is 9:26pm and michigan still SUCKS!!!

Holy crap!!!  I was already to go to bed, we are leaving at 6 a.m., until I watched this video.  Fuck an A!  This gives me so much joy and rage and love and ...... DAMN I NEED TO HIT SOMEBODY!!!!  Urban is a Buckeye, just like the rest of us!  Win or lose tomorrow this guy gets it.  BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF TTUN!!!

For the handful of posters that said they hated/disliked Urban for the 06' NC beatdown he gave us, why? He was doing what UF paid him to do, as I watched the game unfold and even knowing that UM was a native Buckeye and idolized Woody and Earle I held zero animosity for Urban during and after the game. I was pissed off at our coaching staff for making no adjustments at halftime and the players for laying down.

theDuke's picture

yeah, in '06 i think he might have called off the dogs because it was Ohio State and the game was clearly getting out of hand. Damn they smoked us...oh well. #Beattheshitoutofmichigan!!!! 


onetwentyeight's picture

He did call the dogs off. If you go back and look (it's gruesome) they did most of their damage before halftime. He put in his backup QB with no arm in relief of his starter Chris Leak. It's not his fault the backp reacted like he won WW2 after every play. I think that's where most of our past animosity towards UF came from. That second half, score-wise, wasn't bad. It was just ... bad ego-wise. 

Brutus's picture

Then why dislike Hoke? He's just getting paid to beat Ohio State.  I can't speak for others, but my dislike for Meyer was more than just 2006.  That game just made me dislike him more.  No matter now.  That's all in the past.

onetwentyeight's picture

BECAUSE BRADY HOKE, my friend, is a NATIVE of OHIO who "DECIDED" just RANDOMLY when he was growing up that he'd be a M!chigan fan. JUST BECAUSE. 

KillerNut's picture

Well since Hoke coaches tsun, it's perfectly acceptable to hate him for life. 

BuckeyeUro's picture

I was hoping Coach Meyer will say it again “BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF MICHIGAN” but he did not, the crowd during the today’s Basketball game was on fire.
Shaky video but hope you will enjoy it.

southbymidwest's picture

Thanks for posting that Buckeyeuro! I watched the basketball game on BTN and was hoping that some of it would be shown-luckily they did show a snippet of Meyer later on in the game, but not the full introduction/presentation/ceremony/salute whatever it was called.

He will still need to prove it in his men on the field, but we can all see the heart that Urban has, and he will do all  that he can to make THE Ohio State University the team upon a hill.

Let's just hope the Defense that has been shaping up since the MSU game is in full force, then we should do just fine!  In Urban we trust!

I have no pads, or helmet, or any kind of uniform, or football training, and a elementary grasp of the English language, but I will gladly take the field and do whatever that man asks of me after that.

Finally, the classic battle. The best Ohio has to offer vs. the rest Ohio has to offer.

Et_Tu_OSU's picture

There is an unmistakable beauty and solemn truth that rings in the voice of the person that speaks from the heart.  If there was any doubt or apprehension about whether the right coach was hired, it is either now dispelled, or the hater must recognize himself for what he is.  Just awesome...

btalbert25's picture

I honestly don't understand how anyone couldn't be on board with Urban after he started 11-0 with this team this year.  He has said all the right things all year.  I know you aren't saying you doubted him, I just can't imagine how anyone who has followed the Buckeyes and saw what Urban has done in recruiting and on the field would doubt him at this point.

I really hope he goes for 2 in the game.  That plus a win would make my decade!!

Yes there are two Buckeyes in Ann arbor on this site!

O-H-I-Owe-U's picture

It's been just about over year since the Coach lost his dad. That had to be on his mind this week and as he stood at that podium. Whatever happens tomorrow, I'm as proud as I can be of our players, our coaches, and especially to see Urban Frank Meyer leading our Buckeyes. 

poop's picture

John Simon is a game time decision tomorrow and I hope so much that he plays. I wonder if Urban is really upset for him.

KillerNut's picture

Unless John Simon is dead, he will play tomorrow. It would take more people than the 'Shoe can seat to keep him off that field. Let's all pray he is ok though

buckeyedude's picture

What the hell happened to Simon?! This is the first I've heard anything on him.

Don't know what "NTO" sleep is, but it sound f'in awesome! But if you ever have "TMI" sleep, keep it to yourself please. :)

Go Bucks!

KillerNut's picture

If any man can take us 26-0 for next years Natty, it is this man. Mr. Meyer, thank you for being the coach of our beloved Buckeyes.

I was fine untill he said that now I cant sleep.

O H I O is the Buckeye State

MediBuck's picture

So incredibly pumped right now. This guy just gets it, and win or lose tomorrow, I'll have not a sliver of a doubt left in my mind that Urban Meyer did everything in his mortal capacity to win the game. O-H!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

loved the video, but I cant believe he actually said that.    Every scUM player/coach/waterboy/etc. is gonna be superhyped.    i guess the Urbmeister will just have to deliver.

LouGroza's picture

Perusing different sites and see that this is getting used as an opportunity to trash Urban at every hater turn. MGo is going with the typical "Hoke would never do something so classless" crap. Funniest thing is they would have welcomed Urban as their coach, bowing at his feet if given the chance. Instead they have a coach with a 58-52 record and could possibly end up with a 5 loss season. How many years of that will they put up with?

jkrk's picture

Hoke would also never do something like win his division.

btalbert25's picture

I have a huge Man Crush on Urban.  I don't get that way about coaches or players.  Everything the man says just always has me jacked.  I want to go out and hit a Wolverine today.  Maybe I will!!! lol.

I love this. Go Buckeyes!! Nice to see a coach say what I"m always thinking!!

I put the The, in The Ohio State Univeristy.

btalbert25's picture

It's going to be a travesty when Urban Meyer doesn't win B1G or National coach of the year.  I don't care what happened in Happy Valley, they still lost 4 games.  Coming off of a 7 loss season and a team in total disarray and getting shocked by a bowl ban, it's incredible that Urban has this team up to 11-0.  I know Penn State went through a lot, and they had defections, but it speaks even more to the kind of coach Urban is, that none of the seniors took off.  They had the option to leave without penalty and they all stayed.  No one talks about the amazing job Urban has done.  They just think well he's Urban Meyer that's expected.  It's a shame really.
