I wonder if Casey Anthony is disgusted that Urban Meyer is the coach of her beloved Buckeyes.

In other news, Dennis Erickson and Butch Davis failed Ray Lewis; and John McKay failed O.J.

So has Hernandez's middle school English teacher taken responsibility?

Your state's highest paid employee, everybody! Given 'em a hand. Nothing like responsibility

To be fair, at least Lawrence Philips never killed anyone (that we know of.)

From TFA: "Hernandez was held to the same drug testing policy as every other player."

Sooooo...none?  "Hey, Aaron, are you high right now?", "Uhhhhh.....no?", "OK, he's clean!!".  Ask Percy Harvin how strict the drug testing was.

And no, Meyer isn't directly responsible for Hernandez's behavior.  But good Christ, he runs the loosest ship in college football, and that's saying something. He basically ran the farm team for the State of Florida Department of Corrections.

Enjoy the ride, tOSU, because Urban coaching your team is like farking a supermodel with AIDS, herpes, and warts.  You'll feel like you're on top of the world while it's happening, but oh man, the aftermath.....

Yeah, Buckeye fans might want to reconsider what a boon it was to get Meyer as head coach... I think there will be some pretty damning things coming out of this whole mess, as there are suddenly a large number of sports writers eyeing Pulitzers for what they might dig up on Hernandez's college years. Taking down the program (which will include Urban Meyer), and probably at the same time, showing Tebow in miraculous light will probably make some journalists career and leave yet another mess for tOSU to clean up.

Phillips was a grown ass man. If the law didn't want to prosecute him what is Osbourne supposed to do? He was like any other boss, if you have an employee who is producing, and breaks the law but doesn't get prosecuted, are you going to fire them? Most employers won't.

I think you'll find the NCAA and their teams are pretty keen to keep up pretence that these people are *not* employees.  Their student-athletes, which means their college has a moral obligation to provide guidance, pastoral care and punishment for transgressions of expected standards of behaviour - and those standards are, supposedly, stricter than "don't get convicted of a felony."

Well, Dennis Erickson was/is a failure, so there's that.

It was obviously his fault Hernadez shot about 12 people.

Yeah, ol' Urban basically took advantage of the fact that Tim Tebow is a frikking saint to get all the sports media conned into assuming that the rest of the program was as squeaky clean as little mister homeschool poster boy is. Everybody else on the team was running around behaving badly but nobody paid it any mind because the face of the program was a choir boy.

And then as soon as the chickens started coming home to roost, Urban high tailed it out of town. Enjoy it Ohio, he's your problem now.

doesn't have to pay workers' comp.

Not fixed - what you said is college administrator-speak for what I said.

Coach Meyer,

I've seen Tom Osborne coach. I watched him win national championships. You, sir, are no Tom Osborne.

Yeah but certainly not for a lack of trying.

See?  Urban Meyer IS a better coach than Tom Osborne.  He taught his players how to follow through and improve their execution.

To be Lawrence Phillips, Hernandez would have to receive a standing ovation once he returns to the field. At least Patriots fans have been outraged and I don't think Belichick will pick him up from prison as Dick Vermeil did with Phillips. Husker fans circled the wagon and made him and Osborne out to be victims of the media. I was at the game in which Phillips returned. Husker fans gave him a standing ovation. I turned to the row I was in and yelled "You are a bunch of sick farks." No one could hear me over the applause. Never had an ounce of respect for Osborne or the Huskers after that.

The Phillips-Hernandez parallel would only be more dramatic if Hernandez capped it off by missed a blocking assignment that effectively ended Brady's career.

Except that Tom Osborne never left his school for greener pastures.  Otherwise, sure, why the fark not.  Can't be Hernandez's fault that he's a gangbanger and an idiot, gotta be everyone else's, right?

What's funny is you would be shiatting on him if he were still at Florida, he failed him because instead of suspending him and showing there are consequences to his actions he covered for his ass.

But then OSU is used to coaches like that.

That'll be 15 yards on subby for personal fail.
 
2013-07-08 03:42:52 AM
Really subby? My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Hernandez at 31 Flavors last night. I guess I'm responsible too.
