Urban Meyer to Ohio State a Done Deal

It's being reported that Urban Meyer has agreed to be the next head coach for the Ohio State Buckeyes. It will be made official next Monday, two days after Ohio State finishes the regular season with rival Michigan.

Ohio State will probably take their probation by agreeing not to go to a bowl game this season. Meyer will come in and start recruiting immediately and has already come to agreement with some assistant coaches to join him in Columbus. Rumor is that current head coach Luke Fickell will be made defensive coordinator under Meyer. Next Tuesday the Buckeyes will introduce Urban to the students at halftime of the Buckeyes-Duke basketball game.

I'm still hearing 5-year deal for $30-35 million. Most of us knew this was bound to happen when Jim Tressel was forced to leave but still the Buckeyes got the perfect coach in Urban Meyer especially considering the uneasy task of skirting NCAA sanctions.

Now the question is what kind of shirt can we make for the new "Urban Legend" in Columbus?

Stanford's Nike Pro Combat Uniforms vs Notre Dame

Ever since I can remember Stanford has always worn cardinal red and white. This week however they will be sporting the new Nike Pro Combat Uniforms with red and black. It basically looks like a steady mixture of Ohio State's and Georgia's Power Rangers uniform they wore vs Boise State concocted by the brass of Nike. For one game I have no problem with it and I'm sure Andrew Luck and his teammates will have fun with them. The uniforms are kind of boring looking but the helmet I think is very cool. If anything maybe the black helmets will make Stanford look faster when Michael Floyd is running past them.
