I’ve gone back and forth on the Urban Meyer story. When I initially heard about it, I thought it was blown out of proportion but studied it in greater detail and thought it would result in Meyer’s termination. But I continued to dig and more information came out and I started to think that Meyer did what he should have done. This was always a very complicated story. I was always curious to hear results of the investigation and report. I defended him as the investigation continued.
“Those players didn’t choose me. I chose them,” it was towards the end of Urban Meyer’s introductory press conference as the 24th head football coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes. A profound vote of confidence for this team and where he thinks they could go.
It was a sentiment that was reiterated by Meyer several times during his press conference. An expectation to bring this team back to prominence.
