Darrell's first answer to the first question made me think "Wow, this guy is going to change Purdue for the better." I am definitely rooting for them.

He seems really intense and focused on winning. You can tell he's a Tressel disciple from his demeanor and his philosophy.

Except I hope he loses by 50 every time he plays OSU.  I'm tired of this Purdue curse we have going on!

Hazell's mannerisms and answers sound a lot like Coach Tressel.

Love the Delaney 'shop! Looks like I'll be conveniently away from all media from 12:30-1:29

I need to call the wife to make sure my Ohio state rule forces this to be recorded on the DVR.  Thank you again 11W for saving the day.

Knowing BTN, they'll play this a thousand more times before their practice tour begins.

so far
Hazell- Class Act and former Buckeye
Anderson- Class Act
Fitzgerald- Class Act
 
running out of coaches to hate in the BIG after Hoke's deal this week with the boy with cancer
 
Dantonio not my favorite but is former Buckeye
Pelini also not my favorite but is former Buckeye
Boekman- I liked him at Toledo
O'Brien- hard to dislike a man that took on so much and has done it in a class way
Wilson- he impressed me- edit
Ferentz- overrated but is it his fault?
Minnesota- Not a big fan of Coach Fox but I like Luther and Dauber
I guess i need to learn to hate Edsall but I like Under Armour
Flood- I know he's  a Schiano guy and I like Schiano
Hopefully a BIG coach will give me some ammo the next few days

What's your angle, here Anderson?  What is this saying nice things about our coach all about?  #notusedtoBertbeinggone

I really hope UFM blasts the media for their tabloid-style, snarky, judgmental asses. A journalism degree does not make someone a morality expert.

Does Tim May always sound like a Bama boy? Sounds like he made his way to the wrong media days.

Yes, I am pretty sure Tim May is from Alabama.  He sounds like his should be an SEC scribe, but nope, he has been on the Dispatch for over 25 years, I believe.

I might be wrong, but I think he's from Tennessee.

9-11 of the questions were negative directed at Urban
the TEAM was 12-0 last year and is ranked top 3 in almost every National Poll
and its all about what happened last weekend and at Florida

I thought Urban handled himself pretty well. No big surprise that the media was extremely negative in their questioning. Poor guy, he catches so much shit.

He does take a ton of crap from one to many talking heads. IMO. 
I agree with you though. I would go to great depths to make that much coin. Repeated kicks to my no no spot , no problem.

Was watching the reaction on ESPiN after UFM's Q&A session. I have to admit I was prepped for more bashing, but was pleasantly surprised by Rod Gilmore's very favorable commentary on Urban's presser.

Oldschoolbuck's picture

Urban just knocked it out of the park! Calm, direct, honest, answered what he could (probably could have elaborated a little more in some questions), didn't duck anything and his passion for his players "like my own kids", really came through.
Very impressive!

How long has it been since the O-Line was a strength let alone the heart of the team! Credit that units success to great coaching.

I wonder if he likes "Hot Pockets"?

Yeah, i guess I see it a little. I'm sure Gaffan is a little flabbier. Give it 20 years and Jack may really resemble Jim.

What do people expect to get out of linking Meyer to issues at Florida with players. He has answered questions about this over and over. Let it go and worry about something more relevant. Although Im sure Clay Travis is digging as hard as he can to find some bs rumor he can exploit about it.

If you're not watching on TV, Urban Meyer is getting hammered by media. 90% of questions about off-field problems and player conduct
 
would not say he was getting hammered. paints a bad light. I feel like he handled them VERY well and backs my love for him as the coach of Ohio State.
He also took a second to mention how people need to step away and shut up and let the facts come out first. love it.

Buckeye Rocket Sci's picture

Ironic about the stepping back given that the lack of that attitude almost kicked Hyde, assumedly wrongfully, off the team. Not that you can blame him; the gut instinct to kick him or anyone off just at the initial thought of it was valid for such a reaction, I'm just glad Gene was there (first time every saying that one..)!

I hope Ferentz get a question about his pay. I doubt he will but i'd like to hear his response.

This is truly awesome. Thank you 11 w for doing this. Everyone of you hard working staff members deserve season tickets!

Urban does take way too much flak about his players being arrested: Kirk Ferentz, Joe Pa, Mark Richt and about 10 other coaches have generated far more off the field issues.
None of those mentioned above get anywhere near the flak.
