Urban Meyer Threatens Reporter Over Tebow Quotes

Unread postby Triple-S » Thu Mar 25, 2010 3:12 pm

The Gator coach had words — and almost more — with an Orlando Sentinel reporter over what he thought was unfair treatment of Tim Tebow. For a man with stress-related health problems, this was not a good moment for Meyer.

Jeremy Fowler wrote this column Monday, in which he spoke to WR Deonte Thompson about starting the season with a new quarterback.

Thompson said, and we (and Fowler) quote:

You never know with Tim. 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."

Fowler then used actual, objective statistics to show that Thompson hadn't gotten the ball much under Tebow.

Apparently Meyer considers facts and quotes a reporter taking an unfair swipe at Tebow. He got in Fowler's face at practice today, telling him "If that was my son, we'd be going at it right now."

You'll be out of practice - you understand that? - if you do that again," said Meyer, while a couple of spectators still sat in the stands. "I told you five years ago: Don't mess with our players. Don't do it. You did it. You do it one more time and the Orlando Sentinel's not welcome here ever again. Is that clear? It's yes or no." (finger pointing toward the face)

"Urban, come on. Don't make any threats," I said. "That's fine. I'll play by rules. But all I was doing is quoting the guy. I don't think I was the only one."

"You're a bad guy, man," Meyer said. "You're a bad guy."

After practice, Meyer left through the back exit, avoiding the media. The coach/reporter relationship is a symbiotic one. And today, Meyer savaged a reporter for doing his job, while he failed to do his own.

He's an asshole, he always was an asshole. and he'll probably always be an asshole. But that asshole sure can coach. He act's like Tebow is his friggin wife or something. Relax Urb, Timmy isn't the messiah, he can't walk on water or turn water into wine. And how can a guy with "heart problems" get this worked up over a article?

Exactly.

I sort of chuckle at those that insist that he's a good guy because he does all this charity work and such, and yet someone like Tressel who's quietly done a lot around the columbus community and all around the state of ohio is just shrugged off often times by the media.

and I agree he's a good coach, he's found a formula that has worked for him, just hoping soon that someone (hopefully from the Big Ten) cracks it and he's bumped back down a few notches.

No way would this go ever go so far over the top he would tell his team he has to retire because his love of the game makes it to hard to calm himself done and it is going to kill him, just to keep them from taking a cakewalk game lightly. No way. :lmfao:

I saw his blowup but hadn't seen the quotes until this thread. I had assumed Urban was complaining about the reporter making the WR look bad for talking about Tebow negatively. How can you complain about a Heisman trophy winner and one of the winningest QB in college history.

Wut?

He wasn't protecting shit. Instead of acting like an adult, he decided to stomp over there and make chickenshit threats to a reporter who quoted Thompson accurately. It's not like the reporter wrote a bunch of untruths slamming Tebow. He's a coward, he has to threaten to throw the Orlando Sentinel out of his practices because the dude asked a UF player about Tebow. A common low rent controll freak bully who can't stand the fact someone would say something critical of Jesus Tebow, instead of Thompson (who is right BTW), he directs his bullshit at a guy who just asked a question about the difference between Tebow and Brantley.
