This is probably fairly significant fodder for all the OSU haters around the country. Clay Travis strikes for a second time (he's the schmuck who wrote an article the other day about Meyer being at fault for Aaron Hernandez' transgressions). Has he become the most passionate Urban Meyer hater in the media universe? Looks like he is going to give Bianchi a run for his money.
"Urban Meyer's will to win burns with such competitive fire that he won't allow anyone to stand in his way on the recruiting trail.
Including, evidently, his former school and a former assistant coach.
Outkick the Coverage has learned from sources in New York that Meyer and Ohio State turned in Florida assistant coach Brian White for an alleged improper "bump" violation related to the recruitment of Curtis Samuel, a running back/defensive back from Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Investigations into Ohio State's complaint this spring uncovered no wrongdoing, the sources said, but Samuel subsequently revealed Florida no longer is in his top five schools — while OSU is."
Meyer's unprecedented move appears to already have paid dividends for Ohio State, even as it may have left incredibly raw feelings at Florida.
For the moment, Meyer has won another recruiting battle, but in so doing has he burned bridges?
