OSU Head Coach, Urban Meyer Responds To Criticism

Friday February 3rd, 2012

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.
