Well then he went to OSU so now they don't like him anymore otherwise they would have had him join the Gameday crew at the National Championship game, err wait.Continue your conspiracy theory.

If you're a big fish, like OSU is, you're going to get more than your share of attention, both positive AND negative.Of course this is correct. It is so tiresome to see this board littered with whiners about the Buckeyes getting "picked on." Nobody gives a damn about the Michigan States, Wisconsins.... Ohio State is still the big fish here and Urban Meyer is a hugely polarizing figure. The Big Ten schools better try to keep up and change the way they do business or they will wallow in mediocrity.

They proceeded to run an ENTIRE SEGMENT about how Urban is trying to "poach" Oregon recruits. The segment probably lasted 5 minutes and the entire time there was a graphic on the screen that read "Urban Meyer going after Oregon recruits".It struck me as odd because:1) I've never seen them devote an entire segment to any other coach who goes after recruits that have already given "verbal" commitments (and we know MANY coaches do this, including every last one in the SEC)2) The tone/vibe of the discussion made it sound like Urban was the only coach engaging in this kind of recruiting tactic. Unless he really is the only coach going after Oregon recruits - because they didn't mention one other coach.They even went as far to close their discussion by reassuring the viewer that Oregon had nothing to worry about because their program is now considered elite with or without Chip Kelly and the hosts were certain that Urban wouldn't be able to poach many of the recruits anyway. They basically ended the segment by saying it was a non-story, as they felt Oregon's verbals were solid.So, they ran an entire segment on (in their words) a "non-story". Which means the purpose of that segment was...what? Apparently to inform America that Urban Meyer is trying to get a couple of Oregon recruits to switch their commitment, even though they aren't going to.I'm not saying the OP is on to something, but I'm trying to wrap my head around the purpose of ESPN running that 5-minute segment.

Other schools have complained about his tactics.Being a Duck fan, you could steal the two recruits and we would still smoke you on the field. Would love to have a home and home with you. I say we settle it there.

The match ups in any near future game would favor Ohio State, your schools only hope of staying among the nations elite hinge on USC staying down and your school taking their recruits . IMO your schools best chance at a win against Ohio State would have been in the early part of this past year and it would of still been a shoot out because your defense wouldn't have been able to stop tOSU offense.

Lugenbill, who I really don't like that much actually had Urban's back saying that, "Any coach worth their salt should go after recruits hard until they have signed on the dotted line."I also thought the segment did a good job of exposing Beilema's hypocracy when they mentioned that he had this issue with Urban last year, but it seems that he now has flipped an offensive lineman from tennessee to arkansas himself.
