Urban Meyer goes postal at reporter after Tebow comments

Urban Meyer went a little postal at Orlando Sentinel reporter Jeremy Fowler Wednesday. Fowler had reported on comments by Florida wide receiver (for now) Deonte Thompson comparing new Gator QB John Brantley to a certain former Florida QB who just recently graduated.

"New quarterback John Brantley is what Thompson calls a “pure passer,” which makes him happy. The two have connected on thousands of passes the last three years in practice, Thompson said.

“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.”

Meyer confronted Fowler on Wednesday about the comments. As you can see, He wasn't amused.

In case you missed it, Meyer said “If that was my son, we’d be going at it right now.” He was talking about Fowler there, but the fact the comments were about Tebow probably made the situation even worse. In fact, it could be argued that subconsciously it really was Tebow that Meyer was referring to in that manner. Meyer also loved Tebow like Timmy was his own child. It just seems that love was more in the way John Huston loved Faye Dunnaway in Chinatown as time goes on.




(And yes, that just being metaphorical.)
