Correct me if I’m wrong: when you hear the name Urban Meyer the first two words that comes to mind aren’t “core values.” The ex-Florida Gators head coach is now in the news for one of his Ohio State Buckeyes players being linked to a Columbus-area assault. Unfortunately, the player in trouble is none other than Heisman Trophy hopeful Carlos Hyde.
Despite any conviction, the starting running back has been dismissed by the Buckeyes and the reasoning is absolutely laughable. Meyer is apparently the one who ruled that Hyde should get lost and had this to say about the coach’s controversial decision:
“I have a clear set of core values in place that members of this football program are constantly reminded of and are expected to honor.”
We’ve been down this road with you before and this isn’t the first time that your disgusting “core values” have been at the forefront. Meyer can say what he wants, but let’s go back to 2010 when the coach was with the Gators and star running back Chris Rainey was in trouble for something even more heinous. Rainey eventually pleaded guilty to misdemeanor stalking after sending a text message that read: “Time to Die B*tch” to his girlfriend of all people.
Sure, Meyer talked tough initially, but Rainey made his way onto the field before long as Florida needed its running back in the mix. So the next time Meyer opens his mouth about how many “core values” he has, just look him in the eye and call him a dirty, lying fraud because that’s all he will ever be.
