“But what I didn’t want to have happen, and I made this clear to Jeremy, if I am able to go coach, I want to coach at one place, the University of Florida. It would be a travesty, it would be ridiculous to all of a sudden come back and get the feeling back, get the health back, feel good again and then all of a sudden go throw some other colors on my shirt and go coach. I don’t want to do that. I have too much love for this University and these players and for what we’ve built.” – Urban Meyer [Two Years Ago, Urban Meyer Thought It Would Be a “Travesty” and “Ridiculous” To Coach Another Team | The Big Lead]

The Ohio State University school and Meyer are seemingly a perfect match for each other. Meyer is definitely an “Ohio Guy” playing DB at Cincinnati which more than enough qualification for the “Ohio Guy” tag – complete with shady reasons for leaving a declining Florida program (obviously through no fault of his own) and a perfect record against Michigan as a head coach.

Meyer has embraced all of the Buckeye traditions like the Buckeye leaf helmet stickers, the victory bell, Brutus Buckeye, Tunnel of Pride and the Captain’s Breakfast. Did you know he has embraced two lesser known Buckeye traditions? The HGH and Tattoo traditions. Take a gander at the pecs, pierced nipple and totally awesome tats. Most people don’t realize that Ohio Public Schools actually offer shop classes that teach Ohio kids how to give tattoos.

Has anyone ever met somebody from Ohio that didn’t have a tat? Not me.

I would recommend that Ohio State invest in some new helmet stickers, a sticker with a marijuana leaf.  At Florida, his players were always getting caught smoking or dealing weed.

About Capers Bar

I am retired Army officer. I used to fly helicopters and airplanes while I was in the Army. Nowadays, I do other things that are not so cool and sexy. I decided to write about my journey or whatever you want to call it towards running a half-marathon this fall. I have been running since 1983, I have run the Duke City full and half marathons. I don't run that fast anymore, I did win a 10K when I was 21, those days are mercifully past me. The fastest mile I have turned is a 5:05 during one of those Army physical fitness test 2 mile runs. The point I am making is that I am old, slow, and experienced runner. I named the blog after my running buddy, Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler. He is my 3rd K-9 running buddy, the previous two dogs were black labs. I hope to write about some of my discussions that I have with Bandit in the future. I once owned, but since sold and a satirical and irreverent sports blog that was moderately successful. I was published in the left-wing national sports media by Sports Illustrated and ESPN. I am "stuck" in Alabama working for a military contractor. I am working so fricking hard to get back to Southeast New Mexico or West Texas. Fingers and toes crossed.
