PLAYERS: Jim TresselUrban Meyer
Ohio State hired well-known Family Guy Peter Griffin Urban Meyer on Monday to coach its football team. Less than a year ago, Meyer stepped down from his post at Florida to spend more time with his family. Apparently, that family is incredibly boring. Or maybe they smell funny. Either way, coaching the Buckeyes gives Meyer an excellent opportunity to spend no more than two hours a day with them tops — and let’s face the facts, isn’t that the most time anyone wants to spend with the fam? Of course, that is assuming that Meyer was telling the truth about his departure from Florida, and that coaching in the post-Tebow era had nothing to do with it. But I would never disbelieve the words of this man of honor. It’s not like he denied he was going to be Ohio State’s coach when it was initially reported last week. “I have not been offered any job nor is there a deal in place,” he said last Wednesday. See? Semantically speaking, that’s not a lie! There was no deal in...

Meeting Of The Minds: What Is Urban's Upside?

Hello Columbus! After a week's worth of flirting, heavy petting and sneaking around behind their parents back, Urban Meyer and Ohio State are now, finally a couple.
