Urban Meyer, Gene Smith, Braxton Miller and Jeff Heuerman Raise the Selfie Game

A mid-air selfie.

There's the selfie and then there's the Selfie Baller Edition™. This qualifies as the latter:

And as Director of Player Personnel Mark Pantoni astutely points out, register another photobomb for Urbz.

Think he's the guy that's taking over at running back.

I was gonna say at first...the title of this post is incorrect.  That's not a selfie of Urbz et. al....it's a selfie with an Urbz photobomb.  He strikes again!

Flight from Chicago on The private jet. So that picture was snapped during take off and landing.

looks like a Dassault Falcon 2000. Pretty sweet jet:

Doesn't look wide enough, does it? With Urbz and "other guy", it is a 1+1 with aisle; the Falcon is 2+1 throughout.

I'm thinking it's a G3.

My first job out of school was a flight attendant with NetJets. The Falcon 2000 is 10 in the cabin. 4 single seats up front, the table back left of cabin and 2 singles to the right, just like the picture above.

Not saying you're wrong, just that the jet they're in looks narrower, that's all.

No Worries, they're basically the same plane the G3 just has longer range with bigger windows. I just happen to have quite a few hours logged in the Cabin of a 2000.

haha. Not as glamorous as it seems when you flew the nobodies with Money  that think you need to kiss their feet, but there were some perks. The celebs were pretty cool and relaxed, you got to order food from the same caterers that did the passengers (you all couldn't order the same thing though), got to keep any left in the cabin after the passengers left (1 hour flight and I get an unopened bottle of grey goose? yes please) and the tips were nice.

I will say the empty flights to re-position the plane were the best. I would sit in the jump seat for take off and landing (in the picture of the selfie between the pilots) and then I would recline the seats the whole way and conk out like I owned the place while the pilots flew.

Now that I read that, yeah I was lucky.

They're a pretty fast plane too. Cruise is in the 640's. New York to LA in about 4.5 hours tops.

I work for a private company that owns two Falcons, a Citation, and a Sikorsky helicopter along with several prop planes. They even own a former Russian MiG fighter jet. I've been lucky enough to fly in the Falcon globally with some quick jumps to northern Wiscinsin on the Citation, I prefer the Fakcon. The chopper is a little noisy when we take it to Chicago, but it beats the traffic. 

You gotta love PJ travel, when you're ready, you leave. No waiting around. 

The jump seat is fun, except when you see a flock of geese on landing and you're listening to pilots try to keep track of them.

The best part of the jump seat is getting to hit the O2 mask if you need a quick pick me up.

What Citation? I'd love to ride in a Citation X some day, that thing has rockets for engines:

Imagine Braxton & Heuerman sitting in the seats at the table. Everything behind them matches up perfectly.

Except for the corner of the seat right behind Heuerman's shoulder. Hard to know. I think my esteemed co-commenter JEDKAT on this thread is probably right.

Yea its the same plane. Look at the seats, both have 3 pillow headrests and are the exact same color n shape. The cabin's obviously wider and the seats are larger. Only the best for the Buckeyes.

I thought it could have been a G6... cue the beats:

Is that some unauthorized bagel spread next to Coach Meyer?  I'm thinking this one's a secondary violation; private jet and all.  I know that Gene Smith will do the right thing.

When was the last time that Coach Meyer flew commercial?  I'm thinking sometime in 1976...

Since a certain bball player went to bed hungry, spread is no longer a violation.
