When Urban Meyer was first hired to speak about football for FOX on television, it was after he left the state of Ohio due to a scandal he could have avoided if he hadn’t been such a garbage man. And since history tends to repeat itself, it looks like Urban Meyer will be hired to speak about football on TV again for FOX afterwards He was fired from his last job due to several incidents that he could have avoided if he wasn’t such a garbage man.
According to multiple reports, FOX is close to bringing back Urban Meyer’s joke. Last months Rumors of Meyer’s return have meanwhile become “deep negotiations.” According to The Athletic media reporter, Richard Deitsch“Fox Sports’ take on network sources is that they don’t view Meyer’s failure at the NFL level as an impediment to his return to Fox. They know the attitude is being pilloried on social media.”
Translation: “FOX don’t care how much of a misfortune Meyer is, they think he’s a good TV.” This is not surprising as this is Trump’s network.
When Meyer went to the NFL, FOX’s “Big Noon Kickoff” traded him for former Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops to work with Rob Stone, Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart and Brady Quinn, with occasional appearances from Charles Woodson. And since the Big Ten and FOX have a partnership, being able to have Woodson and Meyer discuss football on TV every Saturday in preparation for the Michigan-Ohio State game was a plus. With Meyer back on the market and Stoops as coach in the XFL, a spot has opened up. But even if he doesn’t, this has always been a viable landing spot for Meyer, as he’s the poster child for how white men always “fail.”
Every job has that one employee that people hate. Part of being an adult is dealing with people you don’t like. But, over at FOX, is it fair to ask if the network’s college football studio crew is responsible for keeping Urban Meyer off the air?
no But it wouldn’t hurt if they didn’t want Meyer with them.
What if Reggie Bush went full throttle or Matt Leinart wasn’t willing to show up for work when Meyer got hired? What if Brady Quinn or Rob Stone took to social media to express their displeasure at having to work with football’s laughter?
Given the reports and who is running the show at FOX, none of those things would likely affect the final decision. But it would feel good to know that Meyer is so unpopular, since that’s what eventually got him fired from Jacksonville.
Besides, with all the wrongs Urban Meyer has done in his career, what’s the point of having him debate like an expert on TV when he’s shown us countless times that he’s incompetent?
