MSN - Outkick the Coverage has learned from sources in New York that Meyer and Ohio State turned in Florida assistant coach Brian White for an alleged improper “bump” violation related to the recruitment of Curtis Samuel, a running back/defensive back from Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn, N.Y. Investigations into Ohio State’s complaint this spring uncovered no wrongdoing, the sources said, but Samuel subsequently revealed Florida no longer is in his top five schools — while OSU is.
Meyer’s willingness to turn in a former coach — one he hired — as well as the program he led for six seasons is unheard of in college athletics.
A bump violation — a secondary NCAA offense — prohibits contact between coaches and players during non-contact periods of the recruiting calendar. An email to Ohio State seeking comment was not immediately returned Tuesday night. While no wrongdoing was uncovered based on White’s alleged violation, the top recruit that both Ohio State and Florida were pursuing recently announced his final five choices: Alabama, Notre Dame, Miami, Rutgers and Ohio State. No Florida.
For the moment, Meyer — who won two BCS National Championships in his six seasons with Florida — has won another recruiting battle.
Classic Urban. Love it. Embracing the villain role like a mofo. Hey former assistant coach who worked for me and that I personally hired, how about you go open your mailbox, pull out the recruiting violation I filed against you, and fuck your own face with it. Absolutely ruthless. Haven’t seen a tattle job this blatant since I ran to tell Pres that Maurice just dropped a crucial can of corn fly ball that allowed 2 runs to score in our Barstool Kickball tournament last weekend. Got to play the game the right way or else your ass is getting ratted out, something me and Urban both subscribe to.
