PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
I just don't think this will end well. Stephen A. Smith is saying "I can't wait to talk to Mr. Urban".
This isnt going to end well...........for Stephen A. Smith
Yeah Stephen A. is less of an asshat than Skip Bayless, but he is still an asshat. Urban, if he so chooses, will destroy him. Stephen A. will act like he is asking the tough questions about player discipline and yadda yadda yadda, but its nothing Meyer hasnt seen or heard before. Expect UFM to dominate.
Stephen A. Smith needs to just go away.
I hope Urban B@tch smacks him....no pun intended btw.
Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.
I expect it go to down something like this...
Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...
I would imagine it has something to do with hitting things head on, which I applaud. A coach/program who doesn't shy away from the topics is harder to attack than the coach that completely ignores the media & deflects.
Edit: Understand your trepidation on not going well. I would just volunteer that the same thing was thought before B1G Media Days. He did fine there and he'll do fine with today.
Agree completely. With all of the scrutiny lately, I think Urban is just wanting to get everything out there showing that he's not putting up with any distractions and field all of these questions prior to the season starting.
With the way he handled questions at B1G media day, I don't have any doubts that he'll come away looking good. I mean, he has nothing to answer to - he suspended our starting RB for 3 games for a grainy video of a shoving incident, and Roby's out indefinitely pending the outcome of his investigation. Find me another coach who would have been harsher to this point.
"As long as we're keeping score, we're gonna try to win this thing." - UFM
Saw 11w updating it is B1G Ten day which explains this forum question completely. Still happy he is doing the volume appearance he is.
I'm confident ufm wouldn't do this if be didn't have a motive Ufm is always ready he's an x and o guy. Ufm has a game plan. Go bucks
The A. Stands for Asshole.
Toledo - Ohio's right armpit
"A troll by any other name is still a troll".
"Anything less than flagrant is just playing grab ass!"
Urban is going on there because he is making the ESPN rounds today talking to everyone. It is good for OSU to have a guy there pumping up the school and the team
Urban did great but I wonder if it was save the best for last or squeeze him in because he definitely was right at the end there.
Stephen A kissed his ass so bad, he even tried to convince Urban that he thinks Tebow can be an NFL QB someday. We all know that is BS.
Urban is so good at answer the question with the right amount of detail and comprehension. Love it! I can so easily see how he relates to recruit's families. There wasn't any coach talk. Even with the question can tebow be a QB in the NFL he said "he needs to learn in NE from the best" and brought up that Tebow has the second highest completion % in NCAA history. He said there are offenses run in the NFL that Tebow has proven that he can QB. I agree.
Can't wait till training camp next week!
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
Anyone have the video?
He just suspended his star running back for his treatment of women and now is going to talk about player safety. These are things that good coaches and, certainly, coaches who are articulate do pump up school image. I don't see Stephen A. going off half-cocked, personally. Bayless is douche extraordinaire, however, so we'll see.
Urban is doing the right thing. He's answering the questions, giving the reporters what they want. I think this is some of what hurt Jim Tressel, the "senatorial" approach. In the words of Brandon Joe "they could ask him what time is it and he would explain to them how to build a watch but never actually say what time it was". Urban is out there, he isn't ducking questions, he basically disarmed those jokers with his charm and answering their questions. Anyway, just my take.

Why wouldn't he?
Coach Meyer just had a great interview on The Herd. Knocked all tough questions out of the park. Great response to what he thought about the Hyde video too and why he suspended him. Quality!
Agreed. I caught it during my lunch break. My favorite part was at the end when Colin straight out asked about speed and the team being worthy of a #2 ranking. Urban went on to mention the number of freshman who run sub 4.5 to sub 4.4 40's...and then followed it up saying "they will play, absolutely, we need them to."
Cannot wait for this season to get here.
