PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Damn this guy is bitter
"I like to believe that my best hits border on felonious assault."
I think eSECpn should hire him to run the new Buckeye centric page for them. He's already in Orlando, so he must know some people who the people in Bristol work for.
Espn actually did hire Austin Ward for BuckeyeNation, who used to be the beat writer for the Knoxville News Sentinel covering Tennessee football.
What? That's a perfect demonstration of how ESPN feels about us. Like a Tennessee beat writer could show the least bit of objectivity towards tOSU.
I'm willing to give the guy a chance, and he may do a great job. Some of what I've read over there thus far has been pretty good. But the hire is curious to me. Ward is a Tennessee grad and he was covering his alma mater, so why leave to write about OSU for ESPN? More money? The chance to cover a relevant team? I don't know.
It's a transaction towards promoting SEC propaganda in hidden messages throughout the forum.
Oh man, this cat is a must follow on Twitter. I get my daily fill of butt hurt. It is pretty consistent. Each and every day there is some stupid shot at Urbs.
4-6 seconds from point A to point B and when you get to point B, be pissed off
Yeah, he really likes to take shots at Meyer regarding his reasons for leaving Florida (health, family, etc.)
Fails to mention "Going to a better job at a better program in a better state" at any point in his meanderings.
We take our shots from time to time as well, but the one thing I'll always give a guy (or gal) a pass on is leaving a job to go work at their alma mater or, in Meyer's case, the flagship state school he grew up rooting for. It's a no-brainer and anyone would do the same.
Yeah but as I understand it, Meyer earned a graduate degree while on Bruce's staff. So the alma mater criteria works as well.
The best part is the people commenting on the article (locals, by the sounds of it) think he's just as big of a tool as we do. Awesome reaction to that article everywhere, not one supportive comment.
@ Jason, I pictured you saying that line holding him as he cried, a la Good Will Hunting. "It's not your fault Mike, it's not your fault..."
I had to turn the station on his show the other morning (genious name "open mic"). The knuckleheads actually supported Urban's punishment, saying that it was good to see him 'getting tough.' Then they added, "of course, you wonder where these guys even are on the depth chart...let's see how tough he gets on his top players," and shared a guffaw.
You wonder? How about do a little research then, radio man. Nah, it's better for rating to imply impropriety and cast aspersions.
Great job linking his article to give him hits.
Yeah this guy is becoming a bit of a joke within his own state & amongst his own readership. He really does need to & should just let it go. Articles like this literally scream that he's just a red assed hater at this point.
The world is full of kings & queens who'll blind your eyes & steal your dreams - it's heaven & hell - Ronnie James Dio.
"But let's not be too cynical and give credit where credit is due." - Guy who just spent 98 percent of his column being cynical.
"if irony were made of strawberries, we' d all be drinking a lot of smoothies right now."
