Urban Meyer Hates His Players, Has No Soul

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

Need any more reasons to not like Urban Meyer? Or obsessed football coaches in general? Meyer is straightforward in stating that his job and career are more important than the health and safety of his players and coaches.

In a New York Times article about Tim Tebow going to the hospital in an ambulance after a hard hit to the head during the game yesterday, his flulike symptoms during the week, and as many as 35 players being ill recently, here’s how concerned Meyer was. Not.

Meyer said earlier in the week there was no chance he would rest sick players.

“That’d be one of the major errors in coaching history to go do that, because you’d go lose,” he said. “No. Absolutely not. We’re going to bring everything and go as hard as we can. That gets you out of the profession, those kind of thoughts. You go as hard as you can.”

Tebow vs. Slingin’ Sammy and Jim Thorpe?

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

At Fanhouse.com, Clay Travis anoints Tim Tebow as the greatest college football player of all time. But is it the system or the player? In his title — “Tebow May Be Greatest of All Time, but Not of Any Time” — and in his historical review, he says Tebow might not have even been a star in most eras.

But this Horned Frog spits blood when Travis claims Tebow would have dominated in the eras of Jim Thorpe, the Carlile Indian, and TCU’s Slingin’ Sammy Baugh.

Chef Patterson’s Chili Defense

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

TCU Coach Gary Patterson gets top billing in the New York Times examination of how defenses have tried to cope with the proliferation of ever-changing spread offenses in college football. With the NCAA’s number one defense three times in nine years, including 2008, Patterson is cited as “one of the foremost defensive minds in college football,” a “sideline savant,” and a “defensive innovator” who has a “flair for improvisation” with such “unconventional formations” as his 4-2-5. His emphasis is on developing speedy, versatile athletes who can react and hit.
