No. We don't always know the story.
Some of you are confusing.....blunt talk as being truthful talk. You were soooo tired of Tressel's bland demeanor, that you're wetting yourselves over listening to Meyer's "candor"....without knowing how much of it is truth or how much is bull-shit. But we as a fanbase and the scribes who cover the Buckeyes, whether they are in the Digital space like this one or the Columbus Dispatch are all in a lather over Meyer. All over a guy who has won a lot of games.....and so far, nothing else.
For all of Meyer's "candor"....he was talking a lot while clearly covering up a seething bit of discontent on this team at the end of last year. His "chase" rants got old....that was obvious. You only needed to see how flat this team was to start both the Sparty and Clemson games to know that something was wrong in mudville. For all the love he got from the fanbase, Vrabel was a disruptive and negative force in the coaching room. His D line is glad to see him gone and I would bet the DBs are happy to see Withers move on as well.
The head coach who "did not believe in red-shirts" painted the locker room red and some players, like Mike Mitchell, said "fuck this" and moved on. For a guy who let anything go on at Florida, he stripped Bradley Roby of his captaincy....for what.....in the over-all scheme of things? There is another guy who said "fuck it" to this program at some point last year and still will be a high draft pick.
And if you're thinking I am some sort of "Meyer hater", you'd be wrong. He was the perfect coach for what this program needed when he arrived. Yes, Meyer's vs. Tressel's pressers are more entertaining. Both coaches are skilled at manipulating the media. They just go about it in markedly different ways of speaking bull-shit. That's the only difference imo.
