Skull Session: Urban Meyer Always Saw J.T. Barrett As a Coach, Devin Browns Dad Cracks Jokes, and Big Ten is Loaded

Devin Brown is throwing a football in today's skull session.

Folks, Big Ten Media Days is upon us. Y'all know where to go for all that sweet, sweet Buckeye coverage.

Word of the Day: Burlesque.

 HE'S A NATURAL. I don't think there was a person inside the Woody Hayes Athletic Center that didn't believe J.T. Barrett was born to be a football coach, and that belief started at the top with Urban Meyer, almost as soon as Barrett stepped on campus.

"I told him that from one of the first days I started coaching him, that he needed to be a coach," Meyer said. "He's got all the qualities you look for. He's a competitor. He has great knowledge of the game and great football acumen. And his leadership skills are as good as anyone I've ever been around."


Meyer relayed that, when they were at Ohio State, Barrett wasn't sure he wanted to go into coaching because of the time commitment.

"But I just think he's too talented not to be a coach," said Meyer.

I am at least a little salty that he's choosing to start his coaching career in Michigan instead of coming home to the Woody, but I guess he spent four years crushing the spirits of those people to the north. The least he can do is help out their professional team a little bit.

 BODY BY COACH MICK. By now those Mickey Marotti body transformation photos are fairly iconic, but Devin Brown's taken it to a whole new level.

Those photos give me hope that I, too can transition from a GAP Kid's body to the body of a Division I athlete. After all, Devin Brown did it in just a few months!

 B1G TALENT. As we head into the next college football season where you will undoubtedly be told about how absolutely stacked and talented the SEC is, remember this fun little fact about college football's top players.

Now, it's probably worth a small caveat that a healthy portion of those Big Ten players happens to play for the same team (as in, more than half of them), but that's not really our problem, is it?

It still counts!

 COMING SOON TO THE SHOE? Here's an idea that seems way too cool (and profitable) to keep out of the 'Shoe for too long.

I'm just furious this wasn't available last season for me to be able to purchase some Demario McCall signed memorabilia.
