good to see a coach take on the media for trying to sensationalize everything

"If that was my son, we'd be going at it right now." OK, toughguy. If I was a personal injury attorney my wildest wet dream would be a physical assault on the property of a major university, at the hands of a multi-millionaire employee of said university, captured on video. What an asstard.

He's a ticking time bomb, this is the guy that's been in the hospital multiple times since the end of the regular season for chest pains and stress.

Meyer apparently does need that break from coaching - he really seems like he is about to pop or have a heart attack. The guy accurately reported what the kid said and it was not meant as a slight to Tebow. It was recorded on video word for word. Meyers needs to stop hanging on Tebow's jock long enough to gain some perspective. He really is becoming a first-class douche bag.

Nothing wrong with what the reporter did, nothing wrong with the quote the kid gave. Hey Urban, sorry, but your love affair with Tebow hasn't carried over to the NFL, he's been exposed and not by the kid giving the quote. Meyer holds a special place with me, but that was stupid.

I agree with what the article says... Coach is just doing what any good leader would do, defending his kids.

Didn't click the nfp link, but have you even seen what went on to "provoke" meyer?

Here's the original article: http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/sports_college_uf/2010/03/florida-gators-wr-deonte-thompson-sounds-happy-to-usher-in-post-tebow-era.html

Here's the original video of the interview with the kid:

And then there's the video of Urban Meyer's tantrum that everyone's already seen:

If after sorting through all of that, you think that Meyer did the so-called "right thing," you're retarded.

im very aware what they are talking about. if you are a football coach, and a reporter coaxes or publishes a quote that can HURT your team, especially taking a quote like that and putting it in a context that teh team was against tebow, you would do the exact same thing as meyer

I understand college coaches wanting to stick up for their players against the media sometimes; they are really just kids, and the media does go far sometimes.

Too often, though, coaches go to far the other way, ignoring the fact that 1) the media is just doing its job and 2) media coverage of their sport is the reason his program is the reason he gets paid millions to coach.

This didn't seem like anymore than a writer using a direct quote that Meyer just happened to not like. Tough ****. Grow up and start treating other people professionally. Just because as coach he has the power, doesn't mean he should treat other people doing other jobs unprofessionally. Have an adult discussion with him in private, the way 99% of people do at their jobs when they have a problem with someone else. Instead he decides to "lecture" an adult man like he's a child. Power trip.

The quote wasn't out of context, read the original article. It's very much in context, and it doesn't do anything to say the team was against Tebow, or any other such nonsense. It was a non-story about a highly recruited, yet disappointing receiver who was excited about the chance to work with the new ARM-oriented QB. That's all the quote was used to demonstrate.

Boo hoo, it might hurt TEBOW's draft status or something?? seriously. The quote shows excitement for the new team; at worst it might reflect poorly on Tebow, who NO LONGER is a student/player for Florida.

I'm sure the Denver scouts read that article, and then knocked Tebow down a few more spots on their draft board, because this young, intrepid receiver pointed out something that they didn't know before.

What I think Meyer is concerned about (other his "man-crush" on Tebow) is that there are legitimate questions being asked about whether he did all he should have to maximize Tebow's pro potential. No matter how you come down on that debate, it is a question potential recruits may begin to ask themselves. Particularly now that they see how Tebow has been knocked by pro scouts and how he is busting his ass to correct flaws that maybe should have been addressed while he was at Florida. This kids comments tend to indicate having a more pass-oriented quarterback might better utilize his talents as a WR which would add fuel to that fire.

Spinning that quote into a player being glad that Tebow is gone is classic media pot-stirring, and weak journalism.

This is the exact reason he is so pissy. He has received some criticism for the development of Tebow and some believe that may hurt recruiting QB's. I doubt that would really hurt, but who knows? Either way, the reporter did nothing wrong. Urban is a liar (I"m not leaving Bowling Green and I'm not leaving Utah.) and is no different than the rest of the snake oil salesmen in the SEC. The reason that conference has been so dominant the last few years is their advantage in recruiting. If every school could sign that many kids every year they would be competitive too.

college football on the whole is a scam. theres a reason that college basketball absolutely trumps football in terms of popularity of the final tournaments. march madness might be the best, most competitive sport in the country. to hvae a computer tell you who the two teams who can compete for a championship are is ridiculous, no question.

I agree that college football needs a playoff system, but for you to say that "college basketball absolutely trumps football in terms of popularity of the final tournaments" is hyperbole. College football crushes college basketball in terms of popularity.

This year's National Championship football game with Alabama versus Texas drew 30.8 million viewers.

Last year's National Championship basketball game, in which North Carolina beat Michigan State, drew 17.6 million viewers.

im talking about the entire system, there is so much hype and everything that goes into march madness, the national championship game surely gets a lot of viewers, but the entire basketball tournament is much more exciting and competitive than any form of college football. not that it changes how football will run, as long as they keep bringing on money with their ridiculous bowl games.

If the reporter was in the wrong then did why apologize

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida coach Urban Meyer apologized Saturday to the reporter he berated earlier this week for publishing a quote by one of his players.

Meyer spent more than 20 minutes with the Orlando Sentinel's Jeremy Fowler following spring practice.

Fowler declined to divulge details of the discussion, but called it a "constructive" conversation and said he accepted Meyer's apology.

Meyer did not speak with reporters.

because he took a quote and formatted it to sound like they didnt like tebow or didnt want him there, when in reality he was talking about the new guy bring a more traditional pocket passer QB. atleast thats what i took, i dont care about florida, i just understand why teh coach ripped on him.

Funny you should say that becuase the reporter said the same thing

Here's the quote from Monday's article

“You never know with Tim,” Thompson said. “You can bolt, you think he’s running but he’ll come up and pass it to you. You just have to be ready at all times. With Brantley, everything’s with rhythm, time. You know what I mean, a real quarterback.”

Thompson’s comment was either intentional or he meant to say Brantley’s a more conventional style of quarterback.

---------------------------------

I don't think the reporter twisted anything . He suggested he didn't even know how to interrupt the quote just like you are saying

No wonder Meyer is a stroke away from the grave. I'm sure his dcotors are real happy with him right now.

One thing I've learned over the years....most college football and basketball coaches are amongst the biggest liars in the world.

Most of them rank right up there with politicians.

I don't understand how this idiot coach could be so stressed coaching Florida. You live in Florida, get paid millions of dollars, are guaranteed at least nine wins a season, and are worshiped by the fans and university because you've already got two titles. You don't need to do ****. Hell, didn't Shanny almost take this job because he wanted a break?

He had a clause in his contract that allowed him to leave for a bigger school that would pay him twice the money and give him a shot at a title. You can't win National title at U of U even if you go undefeated twice. Most of those quotes are bitter Bowling Green fans as most Utah fans love the guy. He turned the program around and left it in great shape.

Here is one of his quotes, Meyer said he plans to coach Utah in its bowl game even if he takes another job, which would be hard to decline. Notre Dame is one of three schools listed in Meyer's contract that he can go to without penalty.

After reading the article and looking at both videos, I come to the conclusion that Jeremy Fowler, the reporter, left out some of the questions that resulted in the slanted answers. The quotes do seem to slam Tebow when in reality, the wide receiver Thompson never did. I also dont know if Meyer is coming to the defense of Tebow or the Thompson. If Meyer knew of the original interview and then the article, I could see where he could be pissed off at Jeremy Fowler trying to stir the pot with Tebow and Thompson. If Urban was actually talking about Tebow (which I dont think he was), then he goes over the line on a guy no longer on the team.
