Urban Meyer promised to get tattoo if OSU won National Championship
Tuesday January 13th, 2015

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has lots of ways to motivate his teams to play their best but he may be regretting one of those tactics a little bit this morning.

After beating Alabama to earn a spot in the first College Football Playoff championship game, the 50-year-old told his players he would get a tattoo if they won it all.

Now USA Today is reporting that the players, led by defensive end Joey Bosa, are looking forward to holding him to his word.

Said Bosa, "We have core values, and honesty is one of them, so he better not be lying."

Meyer has not said where he will get the ink, but is leaning towards the Ohio State block "O" logo for the design.
