Urban Meyer denies turning in UF over ‘bump’ violation

Hello, college football offseason. I notice you’re in full swing today.

This morning, Clay Travis over at OutkicktheCoverage.com wrote — on his first piece for Fox Sports, no less — that Urban Meyer and Ohio State “turned in” Florida assistant coach Brian White for an alleged “bump violation” involving Curtis Samuel, a four-star athlete for the class of 2014.

The bump rule, which involves coaches communicating with a prospect during a no-contact period, is a secondary infraction. Furthermore, an investigation into Ohio State’s complaint uncovered no wrongdoing.

But, Meyer’s been asked to respond… and he has… so here we are.

It is absolutely not true that I turned in the University of Florida,” Meyer wrote in a text message to multiple outlets. “Weeks after, I learned our compliance guy (without any coach involvement) forwarded an article to the conference office. This is standard procedure. Once again, zero coach involvement.”

Surprise, right?

Ohio State did what it was it was technically supposed to do in this situation and a common occurrence  whether it was Meyer or someone in the Buckeyes’ compliance office who actually sent the complaint to the Big Ten is not all that important. ESPN.com reports that Meyer “endorsed” the complaint, but wasn’t initially aware of it — probably since it originated from a Rivals.com article dated in April.

With that, Meyer’s critics can go back to focusing on the Aaron Hernandez situation, to which Meyer has no comment.

    It’d be easier to identify him as a liar if he would wear the sweater vest. derp derp.

    Urban Meyer is a fraud and known liar so why would anyone believe anything that comes out of this guys mouth!?

  4. bralinshan says: Jul 3, 2013 4:19 PM

    Urban Meyer should turn himself in for impersonating a football coach that cares about what his players do off the football field. He turns a blind eye to what’s happening with some of his convict recruits…while playing his fantasy role of “highly responsible head coach” in public view.

    Meyer is like a comet. He burns bright for awhile…then burns out and is gone.

    Seems like a lot of jealous ppl. Since he isn’t coaching “my team” he’s a cheat and a liar.

  6. jgg1 says: Jul 3, 2013 5:14 PM

    98% of the fans from any major colledge football program would be ecstatic to have Meyer as their coach!!!

  7. theuglitruth says: Jul 3, 2013 5:25 PM

    Meyer is such a phony, covering up crimes, paying off people…he’s just a “win at all costs” guy. Just ask Aaron Hernandez.

  8. tigersgeaux says: Jul 3, 2013 5:27 PM

    I, for one, would never want Urban Meyer as the LSU football coach. I am very happy with our off-beat brave players coach, Les Miles.

  9. jrs45 says: Jul 3, 2013 7:00 PM

    I like Urban.

  10. mtheparrothead says: Jul 3, 2013 7:04 PM

    90% of college football teams would also take tresses. This doesn’t mean that neither of them are jag wads

  11. dkhhuey says: Jul 3, 2013 7:14 PM

    Jesus christ – if I didn’t know any better – I’d say Urban Meyer was guilty of sleeping with everybody’s girlfriend/mother/sister/cousin, responsible for the actions of every single person he has talked to since said person was born and up until they die 50 years later, stole every single penny from everybody associated with Florida, violated every single NCAA rule, cheated at everything every second of the day, kicks puppies, slaps babies, and took a sh!t on every lawn in Florida!

    Oh well – good thing I don’t give sh!t about everybody else’s opinion of him because I love the fact that he is the coach of THE Ohio State Buckeyes!!!

  12. fatcamper says: Jul 3, 2013 7:24 PM

    @dkhhuey – I thought it was the neighbor’s dog that keeps crapping in my yard. You mean to tell me it was Urban? Was this before or after he banged my mother, sister, and wife?

  13. dkhhuey says: Jul 3, 2013 7:26 PM

    @fat! Ha – probably after!!!

  14. be4bama says: Jul 3, 2013 8:20 PM

    Now y’all take it easy on Urban. Remember he’s a sick man. Really bad heart.

  15. tsimpson50 says: Jul 3, 2013 9:14 PM

    Bad heart? I heard it was a case of the Alabama flu! :)

  16. mkoogs says: Jul 3, 2013 9:23 PM

    Boo hoo. We’ll keep Urban at OSU. Go ahead and throw stones while the Buckeyes go undefeated.

  17. borophyll says: Jul 3, 2013 10:18 PM

    Move on haters. Nothing to see here.

  18. bralinshan says: Jul 3, 2013 11:26 PM

    Yeah, you’ll keep Urban at Ohio State…just like Florida kept him.

    How many Gator fans saw Urban quitting a few years ago? Not many. He had it rolling. Then, Saban shows up and starts kicking his ass, the last time at 31-6. Urbie felt his heart giving out…

    He has a bad year, an off recruiting class or two, loses two straight to Michigan…
    He’ll feel those heart palpitations coming on again.
    We’ll see what Buckeye fans think of Urban in about 3 years.

  19. watchfullhose says: Jul 3, 2013 11:33 PM

    If that were to happen…IF…I can guarantee that this OSU fan won’t be a salty little b!tch like you are.

  20. cbass59 says: Jul 4, 2013 9:18 AM

    These posts show exactly why everyone thinks UF fans are the b!tches of the SEC. Is there any doubt why everyone roots for UGA and Bama when you play? Try being classy just once.

    Urban always kept a pic of Woody in his office regardless of where he was coaching. OSU is his dream job and coaches don’t choose to leave OSU. It doesn’t happen. We have UF’s most successful coach (judging by NC’s) and you whiners can’t stand it.

    Why so bitter? Not happy with Muschump?

    Congratulations, you’ve managed, by a wide margin, to write the dumbest post I’ve ever seen on this or any other site. Not only is it asinine in its content, but your attempt at humor is what’s funny… not the post itself. Whatever it is you do for a living; sell moonshine or hunt alligators, stick with that because being funny is not your calling…

    “It is absolutely not true that I turned in the University of Florida”

    Interpretation: He told one of his staffers to report it..

  23. bralinshan says: Jul 4, 2013 11:33 AM

    I’m an Alabama fan so naturally I just laugh at these Buckeye “want to be’s”…Big dreams there Buckeye’s, big dreams.

    Until you play the SEC on the big stage and they bitch slap you to the curb on…national TV. LOL…
    Remember that OSU bunch that was close to “best of all time in 2007? Got humiliated in plain site.

    Until you beat an SEC team in the big game, on the big stage…your nothing but talkers.

    You go “undefeated” playing cupcakes. Remember beating mighty Indiana 52-49? There are miles between you and Alabama. MILES…

    Michigan thought they were ready for prime time too. Uh, no. Saban could have beaten UM by 60 if he didn’t like Brady Hoke.

  24. matt24bucs says: Jul 4, 2013 12:49 PM

    Once again Urban shows he ranks right at the top of the list of phony-baloney,sleazeball, and lying coaches.

  25. dkhhuey says: Jul 4, 2013 4:42 PM

    @bralin – I know it is hard for you but stay focused! I love how you SEC folk feel compelled to pound your chest about how great you are on every single thread regardless of the original subject! Yes, we all know – now run along to your SEC circle jerk and have it out with all of your boyfriends!

  26. modhairken says: Jul 4, 2013 5:11 PM

    Good coach, void of morals or honesty.

  27. angelheartsbuckeyes says: Jul 4, 2013 7:27 PM

    More butt hurt on this thread than a Sunday afternoon at Riker’s Island.

    All this back and forth between Gators and Buckeyes is hypocrisy at its finest. The same Buckeyes who routinely bagged on UFM’s arrest record and the same Gators who defended it are now on opposite sides of the argument. My Buckeyes are just as guilty, but you Gators need to get over it already. If he were still in Gainesville you would have more excuses than bumper stickers.

  28. angelheartsbuckeyes says: Jul 4, 2013 7:36 PM

    @bralin

    Thank goodness u made it thru that murderer ‘s row of WKU, Florida Atlantic and Western Carolina.

  29. malkinrulez says: Jul 5, 2013 9:37 AM

    bralinshan , it kills me to say it but u r right

  30. bralinshan says: Jul 5, 2013 11:49 AM

    Baby Huey,

    SEC folks don’t have to do any chest pounding. They can just point to ACTUAL RESULTS and let it rest. Chest pounding is reserved for those schools and conferences that haven’t won JACK…like yours.

    But, you did get that big 52-49 road win at Indiana last year. That was impressive. That Indiana offense was tough, huh?

  31. dkhhuey says: Jul 5, 2013 12:23 PM

    @bral – no, what you’re doing is chest pounding – you’re just too ignorant to realize you do it. I’ll type it slowly so you can comprehend it – this story is about OSU turning in Florida to the NCAA about a potential recruiting violation! Instead of commenting about that action, you post the following:

    ———————————————————-

    What you posted has NOTHING WHAT SO EVER to do with the story nor does it have anything to do with the two schools not named Alabama for those myopically impaired! Your comment is strictly about how great the SEC is and insulting OSU and UofM. That is absolutely chest pounding which makes you look even more stupid because you then follow that up with a ‘we don’t have to chest pound’ because we’re so great, and then continue to do some more! Again, go find your boyfriends and circle jerk some more – we just don’t care!

  32. bralinshan says: Jul 5, 2013 1:37 PM

    Uh, judging by your comments about the SEC and the weird and bizarre comments about “circle jerks” (WTF?) and “boyfriends”…I’m guessing that you care a lot.

    People that don’t care about something don’t post about it..

    Good luck against Indiana this year. You get them at home, right?
