Your Guide To B1G Media Days

Lots of good stuff here, but especially:

Five storylines/things to watch: Here are a handful of what we think will be the most popular topics in Chicago:

  •  Ohio State/Urban Meyer: The Buckeyes and their coach remain the elephant in the room. After going 12-0 last season and entering this year ranked No. 1 in some polls, Ohio State will be the story in the Big Ten. Is Meyer's team a legitimate national title contender? Can anyone -- especially in the Leaders Division -- beat back the Buckeyes? Meyer will be a big focus, and he surely will face questions about the Aaron Hernandez/Florida arrests situation. Whether he answers any is another story.

Let's be honest here, the media probably has a prerogative to ask about the Hernandez situation, but it's hard to believe that Urban is going to give them anything that beyond the basic pat answer of "no comment." But, thanks to the media itself, it's a story and now they're being expected to ask about it. It's an Ouroboros of futility.

More interesting will be watching how Braxton handles himself in the spotlight, as he kicks off what may be a Heisman campaign.

Urban's response should go something like this: "Go outside and play hide and go eff yourself."

I think it should be: "No matter what I say you guys will twist it. So F**K OFF, my friends!"

Like I've said before, during the upcoming season if any ESPN/SI/CBSSports or whatever national media pundit who's only out to harass Coach Meyer starts into the whole Hernandez questioning in a pre or post-game news conference I really hope (especially if this were at Ohio Stadium) that our local/OSU media boot that poor schmuck out the door or at the very least make things rather inhospitable for him/her. They're only out to tarnish our coach, not do any actual journalistic work. If they were they'd be asking about the game.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

I think he should tearfully confess.

First comment for him should be:  we thank you in advance for the beat down you are going to lay upon Bama and thereby ending the domination of the SEC AND starting a new streak for the B1G.  Yeah, that's how it will go down (sarcasm).

If I was Urbz I would just refer any Aaron Hernandez questions to his most recent coach.  Why isn't the media chasing down Belicheck's yacht trying to get answers?

How about: "You can't be serious".
