If Ohio State coach Urban Meyer thought the start of the season might be a nice distraction from scrutiny about his time at Florida with alleged murderer Aaron Hernandez, he’s not going to get that lucky.
Rolling Stone is set to release a detailed story of Hernandez’s life, which chronicles his time as a Florida Gator and several incidents the magazine claims Meyer, who was the head coach at the time, might have covered up.
The following excerpt is a teaser for the article from the Rolling Stone website:


In college his coach (then-University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer) may have helped cover up failed drug tests, along with two violent incidents — an assault and a drive-by shootout outside a local bar.


It’s important to not the phrase “may have helped cover up” here. Even though we haven’t read the entire article, the teaser seems to allude to a possible cover-up without any actual proof of one.
This has been a theme when it comes to tracing Hernandez’s past. Many have alluded to things that might have gone on at Florida and Meyer’s role in covering up those things, but no one has produced any definitive proof that Meyer knew Hernandez was excessively violent or even troubled. And there’s certainly been no evidence to suggest Meyer covered up any of Hernandez’s violent acts, let alone a drive-by shooting.
But then there’s the old adage: “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” It’s hard to believe Meyer didn’t have some cursory knowledge that Hernandez was a troubled young man, who was involved with people and things he probably shouldn’t have been.
To what extent that knowledge may have spanned is still up for debate and might be revealed in this Rolling Stone piece.
The issue hits newsstands Friday.

I realize he was a bit....uh...lax... with punishments, but there is no damn way a head coach would cover up for a player that was part of a drive-by.
Good Lord.

For a TE.
That hadn't even played yet.

At this point, I don't mind the smear campaign against him, but I wish they would make it realistic at least.

My, my, that sure wasn't the story you were talking when Meyer was YOUR head coach. I seem to remember some pretty heated arguments along this EXACT same topic a few years back.......



Tell me I'm wrong about this Joe.........   :lol:
Hot damn here I am!!

I only said that now to show some contrast.
I still don't think he was all that lax on punishments.
It's just that there were a lot of them. Still fewer arrests than UGA had in the same time period though.

He also basically said he could kick Wil Muschamp's ass































:trollface:

Or he said he could "h\old his own" against coaches that wanted to take a swing at him - whatever. It's pretty obvious that he was implying that he could kick Wil Muschamp's ass...
They don't think it be like it is, but it do!

I would actually put Muschamp up against anyone in a brawl.


But Meyer could hold his own I bet.
He would kick you in the nuts, but it would work.

Muschamp would stroke out before the fight even got started

He'll also fake an injury.

Haha, I still don't hate Meyer like so many Gators do.
I don't think he bitched out when things got tough, and I don't think he faked an illness to retire either.

I just don't think many people have ever been given the opportunity to live out their ultimate dream.
He had that chance and while I don't like it at all, I don't blame him for taking it.
