CAN THE CAVS BECOME THE OSU FOOTBALL TEAM?

The Ohio State football team got off to a horrible start after they lost their second game of the season at home to Virginia Tech 35-21. A lot of people, myself included, wrote them off, didn’t think they had any chance of winning the National Championship after a performance like that. Thank goodness Urban Meyer didn’t think like that. Instead “Honest Urb” and his players stared adversity in face and overcame it time and time again and as we all know by now went on to win College Football’s National Title. David Blatt and the Cavaliers are in a similar situation. Is it possible that Blatt, LeBron James and the rest of the Cavs have learned something like I did from OSU and follow in the Buckeyes footsteps?

URBAN MEYER BIG TEN CONFERENCE CALL 9-23-14

 

Urban Meyer Big Ten Media Day 2014 - 2

Every Tuesday, I get a chance, along with other media members to talk to Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer as part of a Big Ten Conference call. I led today’s conference call off asking about how many starting spots are still up for grabs on the 2014 Buckeyes?

URBAN MEYER AWARE OF OSU’S SLOW STARTS AND HIS RECRUITING CLASSES NEEDING TO STEP UP

Listen to what Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer told me today during his Big Ten conference call about his team’s slow starts this year and at the end of last year, and if he’s disappointed with the lack of play makers emerging from his three recruiting classes. My questions are questions 2 and 3 in the conference call.
