OSU Head Coach, Urban Meyer Responds To Criticism

Ohio State head coach, Urban Meyer, responded to some of his Big Ten colleagues criticism regarding his recruiting methods at an Ohio high school coaching clinic, according to CBS Sports.

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got nine guys who better go do it again. Do it a little harder next time." He has also said that he contacts players who are committed and if they are interested in his program then he still pursues them because verbal commitments are not binding," Meyer said, according to CBS.

His comments came after accusations from both Wisconsin Head Coach Brent Bielma and Michigan State Head Coach Mark Dantonio about how Meyers recruiting methods are unethical. This situation was sparked by the unexpected signing of Kyle Dodson, who had previously committed to Wisconsin, to the Buckeyes.

Meyer was officially hired as the head coach for the Buckeyes following the end of last season, after a tremendous stint with he University of Florida. He won two BCS and SEC championships with the Florida Gators in 2006 and 2008. He also won two MWC championships with the University of Utah. Among these titles he has also be recognized and won numerous coaching awards. His most outstanding achievements have been being named by Sporting News and Sports Illustrated as Coach of the Decade in 2009.
