Should Urban Meyer replace Jim Tressel at Ohio State? In a word, no.

Should Urban Meyer replace Jim Tressel at Ohio State? In a word, no.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 24, 2011

Should Urban Meyer replace Jim Tressel at Ohio State? That's what Mike Bianchi is reported to have said on 740-AM in Orlando. What do I have to say about the idea?To quote Nick Swisher in my favorite ESPN commercial of last year: "No way, dude." If the idea for Ohio State were to "clean up" its program after Tressel and his handling of "Tatgate," then Meyer might not be the best candidate for the job. Sure, Meyer led Florida to two BCS championships. But put aside the crystal footballs and Tim Tebow, and you might see a few troubling issues for Ohio St. Namely, the arrests of at least 24 Florida players under Meyer's tenure as head football coach in Gainesville. That list just might be long enough to cover up that plaque with Tebow's "Promise Speech" Meyer had erected on the side of the Florida athletic facility. It might be a popular play for Ohio St. to pick Meyer to replace Tressel, but with the Buckeye's issues being off the field, replacing a winner with a winner may not be the only thing the program needs. It What it would really need is a coach who isn't willing to look the other way when trouble is afoot. Besides, with the possibility of big-time NCAA sanctions hanging over the program, it may not be a too attractive place for Meyer in the first place.

Oh snap! J.T. Bowtie's a reality TV "star!"

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 22, 2011

Oh snap! Tyler Fortenberry, aka J.T. Bowtie, has somehow managed to get on a reality TV show. Fortenberry became infamous for his pro-Alabama alter ego, a Bama-banged fratboy who ridiculed fans of other SEC schools during the 2009 season on YouTube. Well, at least he did until death threats made him pull his videos. Now he's made it to the hallowed fields of basic cable. Fortenberry is a cast member of a Flavor of Love knockoff called Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too, which will air on Oxygen. (If this was subtitled "Naughty Girls Need Love Too" I'd be more inclined to watch it). In his bio, Fortenberry claims that "prides himself in being the epitome of a Southern gentleman." (Ahem) He's also listed as "a manager and in-store model at Abercrombie and Fitch." Like you needed another reason to hate him.

Derek Dooley rewrites the calendar, and declares 2010 as Year One.

Derek Dooley rewrites the calendar, and declares 2010 as Year One.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 22, 2011

Derek Dooley is at it again. First His Hairness tried to realign state borders for his own recruiting purposes. Then  he tried to ban his own mother from entering the state of Tennessee. (That one didn't quite work out, however.) Now Dooley is taking delusional shows of power by SEC coaches to a new level by altering the calendar.  This isn't 2010 anymore, Tennessee fans. This is Year One. “I kind of feel like this is Year One and last year was Year Zero,” Dooley said in his pre-spring practice press conference on Monday. “It was such a unique situation that we walked into last season, it didn’t feel like your first year. I feel like right now, this is Year One." So if this is Year One, does this mean Dooley is  Jack Black? And if so, does it make Tyler Bray Michael Cera? At least you can't say that Derek Dooley doesn't think big. Or that he doesn't have delusions of grandeur, for that matter. Both of which tend to be qualities of either a great football coach, or a completely insane football coach. Or in many cases, both.  (via Go Vols Xtra) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Bruce Pearl is the $948,728 Man.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 22, 2011

How much does it take to get rid of a college basketball coach? If you're Tennessee it costs $948,728. That's what it cost the school to pay Bruce Pearl as part of his dismissal agreement. This along with paying the salary of his assistant coaches on his staff through July 31. That's pretty cheap, when considering what it costs to get rid of a coach for being lousy as opposed to being juts crooked. (via Rivals.com) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles
