Michigan Fans On Twitter "Pretending" Urban Meyer Hire No Big Deal...

The last 24 hours have been amazing for Ohio State and for Buckeye fans, despite the team finishing the season with a 6-6 record, including a narrow 40-34 defeat to TTUN.

The pain of that loss to those hated skunkweasels has been cushioned, however, with the news that Urban Meyer has officially come home -- back to Ohio -- to do at Ohio State what he has done everywhere he's ever coached -- WIN.

At Bowling Green, Utah, and Florida, Meyer and his staff made each program instantly better, culminating in two BCS titles at Florida in 2006 and 2008 (unfortunately, Ohio State fans remember the 2006 title game all too well).

I actually know and follow a few Michigan fans on Twitter as well as a couple of UM sites, and from what I've seen, they are mostly saying the Meyer hire is not concerning to them, but I think we all know better...

Even a State Penn fan joined in and sided with the UM folks in hating on Ohio State and Meyer. If I'm a State Penn fan right now, I'm not showing my face or running my mouth to anyone about anything -- but, to each their own...

Here are some screenshots of their Twitter postings:

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's a safe assumpion that those tweets are just their collective defense mechanisms as they try to convince us -- and themselves -- that the "happy place" facade they have created in their own minds is real.

Sorry, but that place doesn't exist for fans of either of those programs -- especially not now.

Ohio State had a ton of well-documented ssues to face this past season -- the least of which was the youth and inexperience of these players. The expereince gained this season will prove invaluable going forward.

Urban Meyer has Ann Arbor and State Penn in the sights of his finely-tuned Wolverine and Nittany Lion killing Buckeye rifle, so enjoy your respective wins over the Buckeyes this past season...

Because from this moment forward, both teams are Dead Men Walking.

The response to the PSU fan should have been: "Jerry Sandusky."

The response to the scUM fan should have been: "Michigan still sucks."

Don't text while driving.

That from fans of two programs that have beaten us a combined 6 times since 2000.  Sit the fuck down, shut the fuck up, we had one bad year.  We didn't have a losing record like both of those joke programs have had on more than one occasion since 2000. 

Class of 2010.

it certainly sounds like you're trying to convince yourself that michigan and penn state fans actually care who is coaching ohio state

Pam's picture

Coming on an Ohio State blog and say you don't actually care who is coaching at Ohio State is pretty much saying you actually care a lot.

I said it before, will say it again. A scUM Defense that gave up 34 and 235 passing to us is gonna get blasted come bowl season...

probably not if they end up playing houston in the sugar. also, what does that have to do with anything being discussed on this post?

BuckeyeChief's picture

Uh, we were talking about scUM right? How they are flapping their gums, right? Houston can put up some points.

i believe we're talking about whether or not UM and PSU fans are 'scared' of urban meyer to OSU

BuckeyeChief's picture

I was commenting them on them running their mouths period. It went with the theme. Running their mouth about the win, Meyer, how great Hoke is, etc.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

allday's picture

actually your comment was not related at all to michigan fans running their mouths. it was about michigan getting a ton of points scored on them in a bowl game. 

BuckeyeChief's picture

Ok, you win. 100% right, I didn't fully explain what I was thinking. I didn't type my full thoughts.

those first 3 words you just typed. do you think thats what luke fickell said to brady hoke when they shook hands after the game? #ziiing :)

scUM fans who claim this is a resurgent team are f$&*(*(* nuts. As I told a buddy who happens to be a UM guy (his worst quality FYI) "If you thought losing 7 in a row was a long streak, Just wait for this next one with Urban".  They were 1 Braxton Miller over throw from losing to the worst Ohio St. team in a decade at THEIR place. Hoke is riding skill players recruited by Rich Rod right now and although he has a top class in place right now, I wouldn't be that surprised if that class ends up getting passed by Urban & the Buckeyes if he grabs some of these 5***** names that are being floated around. 

 

 

All of those tweets are funny.. from a pathetic point of view. Thank God I was born in Ohio.

do you think urban will stick around for 7+ years?

ThirdLegLouie's picture

I don't think it's out of the question- He has an opportunity to build something long lasting at OSU and really add to his legacy. Plus, if he only sticks around for a few years, I think that will anger a ton of Ohians. Bailing on Florida is much different than bailing on your home state.  My gut feeling is that he sticks around 7-10 years and calls it quits after that- I don't see him going the 10+ year route at all- he's going to retire and live his life. 

If you ain't a Silver Bullet, you're a target

 
allday's picture

given his track record, i can't see him staying 7-10 years. he had the opportunity to build something long lasting at Florida too which, according to his introductory press conference yesterday, was his dream job. i hope he does stick around though, i am hoping for another 10 year war. 

Pam's picture

You took the UF being his "dream job" out of context. He also said that the only job he would have come out of retirement for was tOSU. Watching the PC I realized how much he is and always has been a Buckeye. The man has a portrait of Woody in his house and Earl Bruce spoke at his Dad's funeral. Getting emotional when TBDBITL came out of the tunnel before the Akson game is something only a Buckeye can understand. Make no mistake, his track record means nothing now. He is home.

This sort of cracks me up. I'm not really sure where this confidence is coming from to be honest. What in Meyer's history has a coach shows he isn't going to turn OSU into a steam roller? The MGo comment is particularly funny. Hoke winning this year has no bearing on how his guys will ultimately play. I DISTINCTLY remember ND fans saying the exact same thing when Weiss won with Ty's recruits AND when Ty won with Davie's recruits. Congratulations, Michigan Men-You have reached Notre Dame status.

Oh, and Meyer is walking in to an empty cupboard at OSU and all...This is one of those things where you just sort of roll your eyes, let you a sarcastic "OK" and wait.

Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would more obvious.

If only there was a way to make trolls like allday come back for their just deserves this time next year. I suspect that he quickly got banned since I can't view his profile.

He is the proto-typical Michigan fan (sorry M Man). Passive aggressive little shits who talk a mean game then run and hide when their reckoning comes due. Pissants.

Unfortunately I was half asleep, watching the "fashion show" and don't know why I got drawn into an internet fist fight. It was seriously stupid, and I was close to saying some pretty f'ed up stuff last night. I actually was so tired, I didn't realise he was trolling. I guess he deleted his account.

Hoke won 10 games without playing Wisconsin and Penn State, and playing a 6-6 Ohio State team and what 8 home games.  Congrats!  I hope they get a BCS bowl game and get curb stomped on national TV. That's usually the end result of Michigan BCS bowls anyway.

btalbert25's picture

Also, I'm confident with the schedule they had and the offensive success last year, Dick Rod would've made this team a 10 win team also

I could go on and on, but I wouldn't make any digs at Urban if I were a scUM fan. Hoke is 57-52 in his coaching career, 1-1 in bowl games, zero national championships, zero BCS bowl wins, and has put his recruiting class together based on bashing OSU to kids from Ohio who are worried about sanctions and coaching questions.

Urban Meyer is 104-23 in his coaching career, 5-1 in bowl games, 2 national championships, and yes, we know Lloyd Carr beat Florida for Urban's only bowl loss. If I'm not mistaken, a few teams beat that Florida team that year. Urban also took Utah to a BCS game.

If I do the math, Hoke had a losing career record, 47-50 before his 10-2 season this year. They can keep doing the math any way they want, but to say that Hoke is better is beyond laughable. Hoke has really good assistant coaches, let's not fool anyone here. Mattison deserves lots of credit for Michigan's turnaround. Hoke doesn't even wear a headset on the sideline. Does he even know what's going on or his he too busy holding his arms out and pointing at things?

It's unfair to even compare they two. Come on now scUM, don't you guys pride yourselves in your academics?

This was the year for the Hokeburger. And he managed a nail-biting 6 point win at home. Urban Meyer was a huge get as a coach. Everyone knows it. Just the recruiting implications alone have me walking around with a 24 hour smile. Then, when I think about watching the tail lights of the Walrus leaving Columbus ( hopefully for some shithole like Ann Arbor ) I get really, really happy. As many have pointed out, the tribe of Tressel cronies that we've been stuck with pissed away a lot of opportunities over the last few years. Without Tressel they were totally exposed. ( They were pretty exposed with Tressel but, hey, when you're winning you can overlook a lot. ) I hate Penn State. I damn Brady Hoke and his trolls to hell fire. The Men of the Scarlet and Gray are going to be college football's worst nightmare for the next several years. Spruce up those trailers, SEC fans. Throw some new tires up on the roof. The Buckeyes are coming.

TSUN:  they refuse to recognize that LLOYD CARR THE MAN THEY FORCED OUT was the guy who "Beat" urban meyer that year. Was Brady Hoke on that staff? Was he coaching at Michigan in 2007? Did I miss something? 

PSU: eh. yeah. Don't even have anything to say to them. What recruit would go withint 50 miles of that smoking crater of CRAP they got going on in State College?

 

Move along.

I typically wish for Michigan to win their bowl game out of Big Ten Pride (although I wouldn't exactly use the words "root for"). Not this year and not as long as Hoke is their coach. Fuck that guy and fuck their fans.

ThirdLegLouie's picture

I don't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan. There are no circumstances in which I would ever "wish" or "root" or "hope" or "woudln't mind" a Michigan victory. That's pretty much all I have to say about that. 

If you ain't a Silver Bullet, you're a target

I'm just not overly concerned with conference pride myself.  There are teams in the conference I like to see play well as a rule.  I like Iowa, don't mind Wisconsin as much as others do, Michigan State is fine, and some of the lower teams like Illinois and Northwestern don't bother me.  I do not ever, however want to see Michigan win.  The Big 10 could go 7-0 in bowl games and 0-7 and we'll still have to hear about the SEC.  I just don't want to emulate that conference and cheer for ever team in the B1G.  I generally want the B1G team to beat an SEC team, but I hate Michigan and it never gets old seeing them get destroyed.

I just don't ever want to see the day where Michigan winning = me being happy.  Even if it is a bowl against the SEC. 

 

btalbert25's picture

I do love the comment, we were the one bowl loss Urban had.  That was also the year their "loaded" team got beat by App State, and had a disappointing season.  So congrats you beat the 2nd worst team Urban coached in the last 10 seasons.

Or the fact that they were really pumped to send Lloyd out a winner.

I didn't post it here but Bart left a comment and at the end said Denard is still hungry and that there is no way OSU will beat scUm next year...

I RT'd it and one of the Buckeyes that follow me replied, "So is your coach... #BradyHokeIsFat"  

I thought that was great!

I too get a kick out of Michigan fans trying to rationalize their fear of Urban.

They know down deep they got lucky this year and the ownage continues in 2012+.  Most Meatchicken fans are ignorant trolls.  You can not have an intelligent conversation with a Uof M fan because they don't know their team well enough.

 

My wife will root for TSUN during bowl season and asks me why I won't.  My most common response is this: "I wouldn't root for michigan if they were playing the Devil for my soul."
