He Who Speaks With Fork Tongue Could He Be Presumed To Be A Liar … ?

He Who Speaks With Fork Tongue Could He Be Presumed To Be A Liar ?

Though the two are said to be seated firmly on the sidelines at present , each in the employ of ESPN respectively as a college football and NFL analyst , I have to say without a doubt I fully expect both Jon Gruden and Urban Meyer to make a return to the coaching ranks ! Granted , as the College Football and NFL season winds down there will be mounting speculation as to which vacancies are likely to come up and which of the duo will be sought out as a prospective candidate .

To my mind I feel that both Gruden and Meyer are eager to return be it at the collegiate level or within the NFL and therein lies the premise for either of these two former coaches . Neither wants to be viewed as being deceitful as to their ambitions . Meyer a two time BCS national champion with the Florida Gators left that program under somewhat dubious circumstances . And even though the former coach stated that he had health issues at the time even the most ardent of the fans of the school found it hard to believe . He may well have been burnt out quite possibly he knew that after the departure of Tim Tebow to the ranks of the NFL he most definitely knew that the program would be on the decline . That asides , with Will Muschamp hired to succeed Meyer the Florida Gators this season seem to have fallen by the wayside amongst their SEC – – — rivals .

Will Muschamp has guided this team as best he can along with his coaching staff but that should not detract from the results attained this season by the program. AD Jeremy Foley has to be pleased by what has been achieved by his hire , albeit that the expectations may well have fell short of previous seasons . However , it would be remiss to think that a 6-5 record with their final regular season game scheduled at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium , Gainesville , Florida against bitter instate rivals Florida State (FSU Seminoles) won’t have that added bite and thrill to it .

With Urban Meyer being an Ashtabula , Ohio native and the lackluster season (6-5 ) that was had by Ohio State (Buckeyes) under first year coach Luke Fickle there seems to be growing speculation that an approach will be made by AD Gene Smith to gauge the interest of Meyer as the football team next season . It may well be seen as an affront to Fickle and his coaching staff but given the expectations of the school each season , nothing that the athletics department or faculty under the tenure of school president Dr E Gordon Gee would now seek to do would now come as a complete surprise to me at all ! These are the very same bumbling oafs who stood by as Jim Tressel seemingly lied about much of the malfeasance perpetrated during his tenure as the football coach . Never mind the fact that in the midst of it all Terrelle Pryor on an off campus was proving to be an imbecilic malcontent and a liar .

I personally believe that if Urban Meyer were to return to the collegiate ranks of football then the vacancy that he is most likely to accept is that of being the head coach at Penn State (Nittany Lions ) . But with all the ongoing turmoil on the campus and the uncertainty concerning what measures of punishment that could very well be meted out not only by the NCAA , Department of Education and quite possibly the justice system within the state of Pennsylvania . The school’s handling of this mess with the dismissal of Joe Paterno , former university president Gary Spanier , former AD Tim Curley and the departure of former Finance Director & University VP Gary Schultz leaves an uncomfortable taste in one’s mouth . A cover up of this magnitude and not one of the individuals in the midst of it all has acted appropriately . Credibility and integrity was simply thrown out the window while this sinister scandal was swept under the carpet . Now as they saying goes ” it has now come back to bite them in the proverbial ass ” and not a moment too soon ! Jerry Sandusky for his part and the ineptitude now being shown by the state’s justice system makes this whole episode beyond comical but simply one where idiocy on this scale makes you wonder what the hell were they thinking from the very beginning ? Even the actions now , of the state governor —- Tom Corbett now has to come into question but there again where can you find an honest politician nowadays ? If anything it would be better for Meyer to bide his time and let this whole debacle play itself out . One way or another , newly incumbent AD Dave Joyner will make come to decision as to who will likely succeed the now disgraced Joe Paterno on a permanent basis. And I am sure that both Urban Meyer and Jon Gruden will be on his radar as the hiring of a profiled and well known coach would bring back stability to a now disgraced program !

With Gruden at present sharing the on air duties for ESPN’s Monday Night Football alongside co-hosts Mike Tirico and Ron Jaworski as well as adding his insight as an analyst knows that whenever a high profiled coaching position is bound to come up his name will be associated with it . And this off-season within the NFL Jon Gruden knows that his name will be on the lips of a number of general managers and team owners around the league . So as of now it is pick your poison and start the the ongoing speculation as to which NFL franchise might seek out his services . I get the feeling that with the downward spiral of the San Diego Chargers’ – – – season GM A . J . Smith and team president Dean Spanos could very well be looking at the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ coach as a likely successor to the intellectually impoverished Norv Turner . But while that is happening don’t be at all surprised if Jacksonville Jaguars’ owner Wayne Weaver and GM Gene Smith make Gruden an offer he seemingly can’t refuse . Jack Del Rio please do something to convince me that you are still capable of coaching within the NFL ? Is that really too much to ask at this juncture ?

Given what I have witnessed within the NFL this season in terms of the performances of the coaches it could very well lead to a number of them being shown the door once the regular season and postseason comes to an end . You can bank on that for sure as there are now a number of team owners and general managers who are none too happy with their current coach . Mark my word , it’s going to get real bloody during the off-season as the carnage begins .

This past weekend as it was the Thanksgiving and the festivities associated with this holiday as a precursor to Christmas I chose to take some time way from blogging . I spent that time visiting friends and family in South Florida catching up on old times and things anew . OK so for some innate reason fans are said to be happy that the NBA will return but with a shortened schedule of some 66 games , with a postseason as per usual . Anyone with an ounce of common sense will know that the league hierarchy and union haven’t really achieved anything at all , as they are merely using a Band Aid to cover up a gaping bullet wound to the gut that is still bleeding profusely ! Commissioner David Stern and his deputy Adam Silver simply knew that the issue had already began to phase the team owners to the extent where in private they had begun to question the commissioner’s sense of urgency in resolving the matter to everyone’s satisfaction . 147 days later and countless million lost in league revenues and in reality neither side has anything tangible to show for this so called “dispute” . Certainly not from a labor or economic standpoint , in spite of the claims being made by both sides.

Anyone who simply feels that NBPA President Derek Fisher , and Executive Director Billy Hunter and the union’s executive committee are entirely happy with their lot , then they really do need to read in between the lines as to many of the so called facets of this agreement . It simply hasn’t at all addressed any of the real inherent issues that the game faces and in reality it simply allows to the teams to carry on as usual .

From my own standpoint , without a hard and fast salary cap and now the idiocy of a luxury tax will in no way deter the big market teams who will continue to spend capriciously as they pursue on field success . It is not as if many of these teams have spent wisely to begin with never mind the exorbitant salaries being paid to many of the so called superstars within the NBA . Somehow , the fans will be lulled into believing that there now seems to be peace within the league ? My question to both the hierarchy and the union is … how long ?

Over the past few years I think that we can all say as NFL fans we have witnessed some egregious behavior on the part of the players both and off the field . But I seriously doubt that any of of us who had the privilege of witnessing the Detroit Lions’ meltdown and the lack of sportsmanship shown by Ndamokung Suh can excuse the player’s behavior when he maliciously stomped on the forearm and bicep of an opponent the Green Bay Packers’ ( 11-0) Evan Dietrich-Smith as he lay on the ground during the game . No amount of excuses from the Lions’ player can hide the very fact that his actions were not only dangerous but plainly put , they were premeditated and showed Suh’s lack of candor and maturity ! That in of itself, is one thing but the mere fact that neither Jim Schwartz or GM Martin Mayhew have sought to take action against the player internally simply speaks to the added insult for those who witnessed this incident . My question would be , had this action ended with Dietrich-Smith being kicked in the head wherein the player suffered a concussion ….. would there be any type of outcry or outrage ? Now we are being told that the NFL hierarchy will review the incident before meting out any type of formal punishment being levied against Ndamukong Suh . The player , having issued somewhat of less than contrite apology , has simply stated that he will continue to play in a way that necessitates or brings about a victory for his team . Well, if that includes subjecting an opponent on his part to willful and malicious harm then the NFL does not need a player of Suh’s caliber within its midst . Football (NFL) may well be an adversarial and gladiatorial battle on the field of play but nowhere in the rule book does it suggest that players are sent out to inflict willful harm on opponent merely as a way of seeking their own recourse .


Let’s put this bitch out of his misery ! Suh stomps on the Packers’ Evan Dietrich Smith during the the Thanksgiving Day game between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers . Ndamukong Suh reluctant at first to apologize for what was an unprovoked attack would later of offer up a less than contrite apology . The player has already been penalized financially this season for unsportsmanlike conduct but his latest action has ran the gamut of scorn and repugnance from the NFL analysts and fans alike . And why not as the has actions were rash and stupid which could have resulted in a far more serious injury for the Packers’ player Evan Dietrich-Smith. Andrew Webber/ Presswire @ copyrighted material all rights reserved . …. .

Thankfully , justice was served with the player (Suh) being ejected and the Packers led by prospective league MVP Aaron Rodgers coming away with a thoroughly convincing win (27-15) against an over-matched Detroit Lions’ team . At this juncture , I am not about to suggest that the wheels have fallen of the Lions’ wagon but suffice to say one or quite possibly two or more losses could in effect put their season jeopardy with regard to making the playoffs . At 7-4 and 5-1 within the NFC any misstep by Jim Schwartz’s players could lead to the Detroit Lions being on the outside looking in at the end of the regular season .

For Mike McCarthy and his marauding Green Bay Packers , still unbeaten and still looking to rewrite not only the team’s records but also that of the NFL .

  1. Not only does Urban Meyer flip flop …. but he wears ’em so well ! What a friggin’ wuss !

    Stern wouldn’t know a deal if it bit him on the ass as a clue !

    Ndamukong Suh is a fu##ing tool of the highest order ! He now makes the Steelers James Harrison and Bill Romannowski seem like acolytes or Franciscan monks in terms of their play and lack of candor !

    To paraphrase Steve Urkel ” did Bill do that ? ”

    And as we all know neither Harrison or Romanowski were said to be honest much less players who weren’t dirty !

    Fine inset with a pic of his wife . I wonder what enjoyment the pooch gets out of this ? He gets to lick her out I suppose ?

    So not only was Bernie Fine said to be getting his d__k waxed but by all accounts his wife wasn’t averse to gettin’ her plumbing looked after by some of the ball boys. Not only did she receive but she also gave of herself orally and willingly . How quaint ! Did she swallow any of the evidence ?

    1. Chris Humpherys(@SportsChump)

      What’s now pissing you off ? The fact that Meyer simply waffles like a bit_h sucking on a dick or the mere fact that the guy is simply nothing more than a lying a__hole ? Your choice .

      James Harrison/

      “I’m tellin’ you guys that Ndamokung Suh is one dirty motherf__ker ” !

      As for Nndamokung Suh the guy now has to be viewed as the dirtiest player “ in the league by far ! He makes James Harrison seem like a friggin’ choir in terms of his play !

      tophatal …..


    1. Ronbets

      Boeheim was vehemently steadfast in his support of Bernie Fine without ever once actually checking into any wrongdoing by his now former assistant . Now you tell me how you would view such an instance ? Moronic idiots who seek apathy over common sense should always end up being made to look line an asshole and be held accountable ! Only a damn idiot would take a view to the contrary ! And hear that’s clearly the case with the Syracuse men’s head basketball coach . It’s the same thing too with the ass wipes looking to excuse the egregious behavior by a litany of faculty members at Penn State !

      Boeheim & Fine/

      “Bernie if I knew that your wife had been puttin’ out I’d have f__ked her as well ” ! Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim

      It’s clearly a sign of the stupidity that’s now completely widespread across this country as a whole at all levels of not only the government but within the field of commerce !

      The Detroit Lions and their fans have always been classy in their own minds and that’s even when the rest of the world looks down upon them as a piece of fecal matter stuck to the sole of their shoe .

      Meyer Urban/

      “Speaking candidly I did not expect to accept the position as coach but somehow the mention of $4 million a year for the next five or six years simply made me feel ever so humble ” . Urban Meyer soon to be coach of Ohio State .

      Meyer going to Ohio State is not only a slap in the face of the Gators’ fans in general but it also shows him as a gutless and spineless piece of shit ! Good riddance ! The two parties really do deserve each other . It’s like flies around shit they simply know how to make something bad appear to seem good when it clearly isn’t !

    And your grandchildren might be on the verge of entering college when that verdict comes down . I mean , OSU , Oregon (Ducks) , Miami (Hurricanes) and a whole litany of programs are still waiting some form of penalty never mind the bullshit that has gone down at Penn State or Syracuse . The NCAA under its president Mark Emmert is being entrusted to wipe its own ass when it can’t even act expeditiously to clean up the mess and punish the most egregious of offenders with impunity . You’re expecting some type of action from them ? What meds are you on ? Not only that , then you have the proverbial ass wipes looking for empathy and all this shit about averting many of the most recent incidents . Fuck it , this mess has been ingrained within the collegiate system for years and only now has the festering stop and come to the fore . You know the problem ? Too many American sports’ fans who simply sit on the sidelines ,, sit around are fucking well uninformed and to damn docile to comprehend what’s happening within their very midst .

    Tom Corbett the Pennsylvania governor while the grand jury hearing was taking place to indict Sandusky had signed into law a $3.5 million grant to Jerry Sandusky’s charity The Second Mile Organization . He was aware of the hearing but he simply didn’t veto the statute . Shows the depth of the bullshit that went on and the ass wipes who simply buried their heads in the sand ! And all we have heard is this dumb ass woefully ineptitude to suborn much of the idiocy by claiming they were unaware with what was transpiring . The justice system in the state much like its legislature and the antics of PSU are so fucking egregious reprehensible that I have no time for the morons looking to appease assholes like Matt Millen or anyone else associated with the school !

    Do remember also , that Millen who sits on the board of the charity hadn’t the contrition to even proffer up some form of formal apology from the organization . The state should force the charity to shutter its operations rather than carrying on . . But the blowhards would rather talk about how best to deal with the issue ? Fuck it if you have a gunshot to the wound to the gut and you’re bleeding profusely you don’t sit on your fucking ass asking questions as to how best to deal with the wound you call in a specialist !

    tophatal ……..

      Not only is Suh a dirty player but his initial lack of contrition indicates that he is one ! He hasn’t offered an apology to Dietrich Smith , never mind the fact that the Lions’ front office are a bunch of spineless idiots for not reprimanding the player , internally . I wonder what the outrage might have been , had that been Brady , Peyton Manning or Brees who had been on the receiving end of Suh’s actions ?

      The league hierarchy under Goodell are a bunch of spineless weasels ! A two game suspension ? That’s a damn slap on the wrist and in no way a major deterrent to the player .

      tophatal ………..


  3. Urban Meyer is a football coach. That’s what he does. Anyone with half a brain knew he would return. Gruden on the other hand is a blow hard. He took over teams built by other coaches. Left to his own devices he fucked up big time. Tampa Bay comes to mind. That’s they fired his ass. ESPN killed Monday Night football. These guys are a joke. At least Howard and Dandy Don were funny and Frank was a gifted play by play man. These cats knew the game plus they were fun to watch.


    1. Bobby Gee

      Meyer may well be a coach but his recent demeanor shows an individual who lacks integrity and some might even say a modicum of credibility . It has been that way to his departing from the Gators’ program under what many may well feel was a cloud of subterfuge and suspicion once he knew that the team was on the downslide after the departure of Tebow and other key members of the team who went to the NFL .

      As for the present analysts and coverage of MNF on ESPN , well let’s just say that they have their moments from time to time but it’s nothing to write home about in terms of content and real insight !
