04:32 PM ET 02.07 | Ohio State head football coach Urban isn't too impressed with the recruiting challenge the Big Ten is presenting him after bringing in his second class for the Buckeyes. Meyer told a Columbus radio station he was concerned about the lack of big time recruiting in the Big Ten given how strong the SEC's classes are on a yearly basis and that he'd be bringing the subject up at the next coaches meeting. Meyer's class easily blew past his conference competition save for Ohio State's rival, Michigan.

how long before half his class is on probation? didn't he have issues at UF?

Big 10 recruiting was better than the Big 12's this year.

Yep. They get suspended for one quarter for those issues. No lie.

He has a legit question. Why are you dismissing it???

Man, that camera angle makes him look like he has a bigger gut than Mack Brown. I'm sure he is happy for the easier going in the Big 10. That's why he ran out of Florida like a scalded dog.

I know, right? Been posting elsewhere for a week or so (troll free) forgot what it was like without crapslingers....

You get on an Ohio State thread and immediately fire a shot about "half of his class on probation" and wonder why fans get upset? Do you go on Oregon, USC, North Carolina and Miami (FL) threads and ask the same thing? If you do, I'm sure their faithful will get a little angry as well.

Somebody should let him know that he's in the Big Ten, he might go a little easier on them then!

I reckon the B1G will now be renamed the Big Two and the Little Twelve.

Yes ...
and the SEC is really the Big 3 and the little 11
and the Big 12 is really the Big 2 and the little 8
And the ACC is really the Big 2 and the little 10

Kind of puts things in perspective don't you think?

Correction: The ACC is really the I-12. Irrelevant 12.

Be fair to the BCS schools!!!

I was being nice!

ACC is really the Big 1 and little 13.
SEC is really the Big 2 and the little 12.
Pac 12 is the Big 1 and little 11.
Big 12 is the Big 1 and little 9.

Much more realistic perspective don't you think?

Speaking as a Spartan fan, I know the MSU coaches would appreciate Urban's advice, especially if it included a promise to stop stealing 4 and 5 star commits to other B1G schools.

I suspect the Oregon thread would have fans deducing that the troller likely stepped in duck droppings, slipped, and landed amidst a carpet of water fowl leavings.

This was a huge problem at the community rec center....the Canada geese population was very large, and the mess they made in the grass surrounding the water feature extending out past the walking path into the parking lot made the area unusable! A local company has since been hired, and the trained dogs come as needed to prevent these rats with wings from taking over again. It is very amusing to watch the dogs chase them around and through the pond!

Get a chuckle from everone that Badmouths Urbie and the Buckeyes.......where only about 7 mths. away from the start of Urbies second undefeated season in a row.....and a trip to the NC game.
