Ohio State Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer looks as though he is out to prove a point this season. He is handing out suspensions like they are free tickets to the movies. Urban Meyer seems to have taken on a zero tolerance attitude.

Meyer doesn’t want to hear excuses from anyone. These are college kids he is coaching and he isn’t cutting them any slack this season. Even when he finds out his players didn’t cause the problems that they are being charged with, Meyer comes back to the podium and says, they shouldn’t have been there in the first place.

When Meyer dropped the hammer on Bradley Roby and running back Rod Smith, some thought he carried things a little too far. Meyer took a lot of flack for the way he dealt with Aaron Hernandez when he was in Florida.

It was like people were placing the blame for the way Hernandez turned out on Urban Meyer. Now Meyer isn’t able to distinguish between a Hernandez type of personality and  some college kids who just had some fun one night and got into a skirmish.

The way that Meyer has suspended 3 of his starters it is like he is trying to make up for something in his past. The way Hernandez turned out isn’t because of the way Meyer handled him in Florida.

Meyer didn’t raise this guy. No with Meyer not being able to tell the difference his could be sending the wrong message. Meyer needs to step back and take a look at how he is handling these situations.

He is going from one extreme to the other. He has to be able to realize he is dealing with College kids and things are going to happen. He better calm himself down a little or the kids he is coaching are going to lose respect for him.

Once that happens he will lose his team.

    Damned if does; damned if he doesn’t. Are you kidding me, after the recent sanctions handed down to OSU? I’m certain that even if he didn’t want to suspend, the President & AD would.

    I am all for high standards and the games he is suspending them for, really, would they even be playing anyway but for a few snaps. Let him coach, for now. If things get out of hand, trust me the Gods of OSU will tap him on the shoulder.

    Wow. A lot of opinionated thoughts in the blog, lol. Nothing makes real sense. He has a program that just came off of sanctions. That thought process has more validity than the Hernandez situation.

    Also, he will not lose the team at any stretch. The games that he suspended the players for are against inferior competition.

    Urban Meyer has gone off the deep end. These young kids need support not fingered out as criminals. Meyer is hurting himself and the team. Recruits are watching him and thinking he’s nuts. The school had better put the brakes on Meyer before he brakes the teams spirit.

    You idiots that feel Meyer will lose his team over this are complete morons. Urban has earned the right to handle his teams as he sees fit. I’m sure you have no clue how current recruits feel. for that matter I dont think Urban gives a rats shit about your opinion. Crawl back in your hole with your piece of crap zero accountability atitude.

    Wow yeah bust on a coach for holding kids accountable. My guess is you probably have a daughter running around preganant at 15 because you can’t discipline. Meyer has earned the equity to handle this team as he sees fit. Only idiots like you feel the other way. I’m sure good quality moral recruits and their parents applaud Urban for his actions. If n ot go play for Miami.
