Urban Meyer needs to be as good a psychiatrist as a coach

Follow TSS on Twitter @TheStudentSect The old saying goes that it’s always windiest at the top of the mountain, but there’s other stuff going on up there too. Specifically, regardless of the wind, a lot of times you feel like you can leave the Gortex at home and go up there in your long underwear only, because you’re bullet (or wind) proof. The first half of the first...

Urban Meyer doesn't see a ceiling for Braxton Miller

Braxton Miller’s first college football game as a wide receiver was last night.  It was a good one.  The Ohio State star made a couple of ridiculous plays (like this, this and this) and finished the Buckeyes’ 42-24 victory with 140 total yards and two touchdowns. It’s hard to imagine someone having a better debut at a new position than he had.  Did Miller’s coach, Urban...
