We touched on it briefly last night but in case you missed it, Raekwon McMillan, the country's best inside linebacker prospect and Meyer target, is writing a blog twice a month to share thoughts about his life and the recruitment process.
Yesterday's edition had some pretty choice cuts, none finer than McMillan's excerpt of Urban:
Of all the head coaches recruiting me, I'd say Urban Meyer is probably the funniest.
He calls me "Bubble." That's because he said I have a linebacker butt. I have a wide butt with a great leg base. Every time we talk, he calls me that.
He says all great athletes have huge butts and great strength bases there. He was telling me about guys like Tim Tebow, Brandon Spikes and Percy Harvin. Guys like that. He said they were built the same way. That's a great comparison. I just hope I can pan out like that.
With Alabama also in hot pursuit of the freakish talent out of Georgia, he's had plenty of contact with Nick Saban. How does McMillan compare Nicky Satan to Urbz?
"Nick Saban is a lot more straight forward. He's all business when it comes to stuff with football. But when it comes to recruiting, he's not. He told me if he could go out and recruit more, he would do it. "
"He can be pretty funny, too. A lot of people don't think he laughs, but I've seen him laugh. I mean, it was surprising at first. But then you get to know him, and he does it a lot. He thinks it's funny what people say about him. "
"He talks about how people call him the devil. He just says he didn't know winning football games would give you that moniker."
"I know Nick is a tremendous coach and he's a tough worker. He's a tough boss but I know a lot of people that are tough bosses."
"I'll say this about Nick: I think he's tough but he's fair. He doesn't ask anything of people that he hasn't done himself or that he won't do himself."
Works for me. I won't argue the man's methods considering all that crystal.
