Urban Meyer comments on Tom Herman's Atlanta fiasco
Feb 5, 2014 at 11:40p ET
As most of you know, Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman was stuck for 19 hours in a traffic jam earlier this month, because people in Atlanta can't handle a little bit of snow.
Urban Meyer's thoughts on the subject? Grab a Gatorade, a protein bar, and go get that next recruit.
"...I can't get ahold of Gene Smith should he leave the car, what if he leaves the car. I said what are you talking about, 19 hours without food or water he's very delirious right now. I said Tom's always delirious. I called him up and said get a G2. Get a G2 which is a Gatorade and one of those protein bars and get to work, we have to go close Demetrius Knox in Dallas. That's what he did. Obviously I'm being funny, but I've never had a guy go through that. 19 hours in a car stuck in traffic."
Bet Tom thought the, "I was stuck in traffic for 19 hours Urban!" excuse was going to work. Nope, not in Urban's house. Starvation and malnutrition take a backseat to recruiting.
You get that recruit, or you don't come home.
He claims he was being 'funny', but we all know Urban wasn't being funny.
As for Demetrius Knox? Yup, they got him.
