Urban Meyer Situation Gets Worse the More We Learn

You’ve obviously seen the videos and/or photos by now of Urban Meyer, appearing intoxicated, and grinding on a very young woman in an Ohio bar (icymi linked here). That youngster is not his wife, and for that’s what makes this incident so scandalous for Meyer, given all the “family values” and “we do things the right way” bs that he consistently espouses.

Same goes for all the “moral majority” types who are defending him. But Urban Grinder engaging in some flirtatious twerking action is one thing, the fact that he’s entirely lost his locker room is quite another.

Urban Meyer Caught Grinding with Woman Who Isn’t His Wife (Video)

(UPDATE: Urban Meyer receives public vote of confidence from Jaguars ownership, but multiple reports indicate he’s lost the dressing room/whole team is laughing at him)

Jacksonville Jaguars coach Urban Meyer was caught on video last night “interacting” with a woman who is a.) not his wife and b.) significantly younger than he. And when we say “interacting,” we mean that the as of now unidentified woman was twerking up on him, basically giving him a lap dance.

Meyer, 57, is overtly flirting with a woman who is probably in the ballpark of 21 to 28 years in age. Will be interesting to see what his wife Shelly thinks of this. (This photo of Urban Meyer is going more viral than the infamous cold pizza on a golf cart from Lucas Oil Field, 2013 Big Ten Title Game)

Justin Fields Should Have Been Chicago Bears QB1 on Day 1

As much as Chicago Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy was determined to hold his team back this season, he hand was finally forced with an injury to QB1 Andy Dalton in the 20-17 win over the Bengals last week. While Dalton seemed to be finding his feet well and was having a decent game, it wasn’t until Josh Fields came on that Bears fans at Soldier Field suddenly woke up and finally got excited.

The first round pick out of Ohio State ended the game with a 46.2% completion rate, and despite showing some flashes of brilliance, was sacked twice to go along with a fumble, which he recovered. [Read more…]

New Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields Excites Northwestern Coach Pat Fitzgerald

The Chicago Bears did exactly what they had to this NFL Draft weekend- they went out and got a real quarterback. Andy Dalton and Nick Foles simply won’t cut it. Bears GM Ryan Pace and Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy know that, just as they know that this draft and this season is their final chance to get it right.

The draft board fall of Justin Fields is just like the purpose/advantage of cryptocurrency- there is no discernible explanation or reason. The reasons given for why Fields slid down the draft don’t come close to making any sense, but when he did, the Bears made their move to get him.

Prep School that Produced Isiah Thomas, Evan Turner Set to Close

St. Joseph (Westchester, IL) is one of the most iconic high school boy’s basketball programs in not just the state, but the country, but it will soon be no more. When this academic year comes to an end, so will the school.

Some of the many legendary names that were once St. Joseph Chargers include: Olympic Dream Teamer Isiah Thomas (considered the greatest Detroit Piston ever), 2010 national college player of the year Evan Turner (NBA veteran of 10 years, now an assistant with the Boston Celtics), William Gates (has seen in Hoop Dreams) and Gene Pingatore (considered one of the greatest high school coaches in history).

Detailing the Big Ten National Title Game Losing Streak

indiana basketball

If Michigan beats UCLA tonight, and they are heavily favored to do so, it means the Wolverines would go back to the Final Four. UM would then be just one win away from appearing in their sixth national title game. Michigan, the only Big Ten team left standing in the NCAA Tournament, is 1-4 all-time in the March Madness grand finale.

If they were lose that contest it would mark the eighth straight defeat for the Midwestern league in the national title game. I think we’re all ready for this losing streak to end at this point; heavy fatigue for this narrative has already long set in. But hey, we have a job to do, so let’s go down this road one more time.

Big Ten, ACC “Challenged” Considerably on First March Madness Weekend

In 1999, ESPN created the Big Ten/ACC Challenge as a made for television “event,” with the purpose of trying to drum up interest in preconference college basketball. Generally, interest in college hoops at this time of the year, during the NCAA Tournament, is on par with the Super Bowl.

The rest of the year, it’s probably about as popular as Major League Soccer. However, the B1G/ACC Challenge is kind of a thing, sort of, as it matches up what are usually the two best leagues, annually, in the nation. This March Madness, however, has been real rough so far for both conferences.

#1 Alabama vs #3 Ohio State: National Title Game Preview, Odds, FYIs

The next college football champion will be crowned Monday night, in Miami, when #1 Alabama and #3 Ohio State square off in the national title game. If this match-up feels familiar, even redundant, it’s because it definitely is.

The Crimson Tide are first in College Football Playoff games played (10) and games won (7). They’re tied with Clemson (2) for most titles won in this format. The Buckeyes are third in CFP games played (5), and they’ve gone 3-2 overall, winning the very first final four in 2014. In other words, this is a matchup of “they’ve been there before.”

Ohio State vs Northwestern: Big Ten Title Game Odds, TV Info, Preview

amos alonzo stagg trophy big ten title

Here we go, the only reason the Big Ten bothered to even stage a season in 2020: trying to get one of their teams into the College Football Playoff. That team is #4 Ohio State of course, a program that rules the conference in the same way that Bayern Munich has dominion over the Bundesliga.

If getting the Buckeyes into the playoff means changing the rules and requirements for the league title game, as a stepping stone to the CFP, well so be it. The rules and regulations were all made up on the fly, and without a ton of legitimacy anyway. The next and final sacrificial lamb for the Buckeyes is #14 Northwestern.
