This post and its contents is not meant to demean or marginalize the contributions of Jim Tressel as Head Coach at The Ohio State University
Will Muschamp, or someone who supports him, must be running a PR campaign against Urban Meyer. Someone is working very hard to get sportswriters to explain away Muschamp's lousy record last year -- and to set the expectations bar very low going into this next season -- at Meyer's expense. Three articles, which all make the same whining, gossipy claims, simply don't appear in one week all by themselves, out of thin air. Too big a coincidence. Somebody is pushing this 'Meyer-was-really-the-devil' storyline hard.
The only person who benefits from this recent media fascination with what Urban Meyer was doing 2 years ago, at least most directly, is Will Muschamp. Muschamp, after all, was famous as an Elite-Head-Coach-In-Waiting for most of his career -- the best prepared assistant to become a Head Coach in America. So how do you explain Florida's 6 losses last season? Uh, you blame the last guy. [Worked for Obama] He 'broke' the football team -- winning those National Championships, all of a sudden like that, was hard on the program. Why, it's a miracle Will was able to win any games at all, as screwed up as things were when Urban left.
The bad news for UFM and tOSU is that rumblings of impropriety are not what you're looking for when your program's already on the NCAA's watch list. There's no good coming to tOSU out of any of this. The good news is that, at some point, the Short-Attention-Span-Theater enthusiasts who manage clowns like Hayes and Whitley will ask them to dig through someone else's trash. They'll tire of Urban and want to move on. And, as SEC-aficianados, it won't be hard for them to find even bigger, deeper, smellier piles of garbage.

When in doubt, punt.
Whys isn't Matt Hayes doing a 3 month investigation on Oregon and Chip Kelly? How about ESPN doing a piece on Nick Saban's use of medical scholarships to make room for better players or his reneging on scholarship offers to players? Hmmm . . . bespeaks of some agenda(s). Don't visit these sites to read the articles!
This is what you to do to somebody who you feel hurt you. You try to hurt them back.
Nobody talked badly of Meyer when he left Florida until he came to OSU. Then all of sudden there were character issues and team problems that Muschamp had to fix. The same thing happened with Tressel. Many of us felt that he hurt buckeye nation and we lashed out against him for it.
Florida fans feel betrayed by Meyer and they want him to suffer because of it.
Of course, as soon as he wins a NC at tOSU, it won't matter. ;)

i just love how everyone has it out for Coach Meyer now....When he was at Florida none of this shit came out.....nobody questioned anything at all! He makes the move to tOSU and everyone flips their shit.....They see the end coming for this SEC "monoply" and they dont like it
Fuck the Media and all their bullshit stories and made up and stretched "truths"
If Meyer was still the coach at Florida Mike Bianchi of The Orlando Sentinel would probably be praising Urban the Patron Saint of Gainsville....Sounds like a jilted lovers and broken hearts writer to me
This is kInda amusing...you know in the whole hell hath no fury like a "woman/gatornation/SECfanboy" scorned kind of sense.
