Urban Meyer Saying Goodbye to Buckeye Nation

After every Buckeye football game, Eleven Warriors dives into the mentions of Ohio State's coaches and players to bring you the #HotTakes and ramblings of Buckeye Nation. This week, we're looking back at Urban Meyer's final game at the helm.

Ohio State was a heavy favorite entering its Rose Bowl matchup against Washington, and through three quarters, Dwayne Haskins and Co., looked the part as the local squad built what turned out to be an insurmountable 28-3 lead.

That didn't stop the Huskies from making things interesting as they scored 20 fourth quarter points and were an onside kick recovery away from having a chance to steal Meyer's Rose Bowl Trophy and storybook sendoff.

Blown covers aside, Meyer got the win he was hoping for in his last game as Ohio State's head coach, and before he handed his whistle over to Ryan Day, Buckeye fans showed out on Twitter with their appreciation. 

Let's dive into Meyer's mentions.

@ Urban Meyer

So many of you cried. I'd judge if I hadn't weeped when Cleveland beat Golden State in the 2016 finals. 

It certainly looked that way early, but Chris Petersen is too good of a coach to stay on the mat for 60 minutes.

With a run time of nearly four hours, it felt like it lasted forever.

This tweet reminded me of the kitchen manager I worked for at a Carrabba's during college. I requested a night off to take my lady friend to a John Mayer concert (I am extremely good at romance) and for the next year I had several conversions with my boss about "John Meyers." Still bothers me to this day.

I have a lot of questions about this picture. 

Back in my day we used to confess love the old fashion way — via text. These kids and their Twitter #smh. 

As a staunch and devoted lover of bourbon, I'm embarrassed that over the last seven and a half years I never once thought of "Bourbon Meyer." Cheers Todd, but take it easy on the ice.

Oh god can you imagine?

I'm on record as a man who believes Ohio State would beat the brakes off Notre Dame and Oklahoma on a neutral field.

The Eleven Warriors servers would've exploded in a majestic fire-cloud if Meyer pulled that one.

That wasn't a fourth quarter to remember, but the good guys still came away with the dub.

Except 83 wins in seven years, three big ten titles, one national title and an unblemished record against Michigan.


I am both flabbergasted and impressed.

Yes Urban, your time at Ohio State between 2008-11 was masterful!


From one GOAT to the next.
