The People vs. Urban Meyer
While Florida continues to "investigate" possible recruiting violations by Urban Meyer, we bring you this video from the MySpace page, The People vs. Urban Meyer.
This is good stuff, with Jimmy Johnson telling the story about Meyer's phone skills (more violations?) on national TV during the Bowl Championship Series title game.
Johnson on Meyer: "I had to drag him through the stands. He was there on the telephone talking to these recruits saying, 'Come with me to the championship game next year. We're going to be here next year.' "
Chris Rose then chimes in, "But it's a dead period in recruiting right now. ..."
Johnson (no stranger to playing loose and free with the rules): "He can make one phone call a week. He told me that."
Glad we got that straightened out. ...
Meyer's top-rated recruit of 2007, defensive tackle Torrey Davis, received a citation from Gainesville police Jan. 19 after he was spotted drinking an alcoholic beverage at a downtown nightclub. He is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 7.
An expected 2008 recruit, Chaz Sutton, who committed to Florida in July, had his scholarship offer pulled Monday by the Gators. Florida was concerned that Sutton would not meet academic requirements. South Carolina and Clemson wasted little time in getting in contact with Sutton.
