Ohio State’s Meyer turns 50, receives congrats from AARP

Urban Meyer

Today Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer is celebrating his 50th birthday. That means he is now eligible to register for the American Association of Retired Persons. The Ohio chapter of AARP made sure to wish the Buckeyes head coach a happy birthday on Twitter with a special birthday cover.

The tweet from the Ohio chapter of AARP was one of many highlighted by Cleveland.com in a social media roundup of Meyer birthday tweets. You can see the AARP special birthday magazine cover tweet below…

Earlier in the day Cleveland.com also took a look at Meyer’s career profile at 50 years old and compared it to past Ohio State football coaches. Jim Tressel was 20-5 as the head coach of the Buckeyes, with a 13-0 team heading to the BCS Championship Game. Meyer has two undefeated regular seasons in Columbus, but nothing to show for it due to one year under a postseason ban and coming up short in the Big Ten Championship Game (and Orange Bowl) last season. Of course, Meyer does have a pair of BCS championships with his time at Florida and another BCS bowl victory going back to his time at Utah before that.

The pressure is always on and expectations are high for Meyer and Ohio State. The way last season came to a close leaves Ohio State a hungry team in 2014, and that should be bad news for the rest of the Big Ten. Ohio State is one of the top candidates to grab a spot in the College Football Playoff and for good reason. But before getting a chance to sink teeth into the meat of the football season, here’s hoping Meyer enjoys a slice or two of cake with a side of ice cream today.

    No Satin was born in October in the earlier 90’s. We’re both talking about the stripper from Columbus right?

    Urban..do NOT join AARP…join Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC) or Generation America. Both of these groups are conservative and will NOT blow your money on left-wing causes like AARP does (i.e. Obamacare).
    AARP hates football b/c the left hates football. They will take your money and use it to get left-wingers elected no matter what it takes….lies, deceit, swindling, etc.

    Congrats on reaching 50 Coach Meyer

    @dryzzt23

    You act like the conservative organizations don’t do the EXACT same thing.

    Say to join this organization or that organization because it fits your political beliefs, but don’t hypocritically accuse one organization of using the same tactics your organizations use.

    8to8 the thing is that the AARP doesn’t tell seniors what it’s doing. Instead it scares them with false rhetoric about the conservative agenda so that they will not be making an informed choice.
    AARP will make Billions off of Obamacare yet they are a “non-profit” who is profiting billions due to its partnership and support of the democrats stealing trillions from the taxpayers for their vote-buying schemes.

    It’s no big secret that AARP supported ACA…. They lost 300k members afterwards…. Not sure how that was a secret.

    Oh, I’m sorry. I thought he was celebrating the 50th arrest of one of his players.

    Meyer later celebrated with an Ambien cocktail after a congratulatory phone call from Nick Saban brought back memories he’d just as soon forget.
