Bielema Angry With Meyer, Misuses Adjectives

Bret Bielema has had enough of that no-good Urban Meyer in Columbus.

Bret Bielema is none too happy with the arrival of Urban Meyer at Ohio State – especially after offensive tackle Kyle Dodson signed with the Buckeyes after originally committing to Wisconsin.

And he unloaded yesterday at his National Signing Day news conference:

“There’s a few things that happened early on I made people be aware of that I didn’t want to see in this league that I had seen take place at other leagues,” Bielema said. “Other recruiting tactics, other recruiting practices that are illegal. I was very up front and was very poignant to the fact. I actually reached out to Coach Meyer and shared my thoughts and concerns with him and the situation got rectified.”

Bielema didn’t disclose any details, though he had more to say about his conversation with Meyer.

He said Meyer asked him: “You know what the difference between the Big Ten and our conference is? I said, ‘No’, and he said, ‘In the Big Ten, everybody tells on everybody. In our conference nobody tells on anybody.’

“And that made a huge comment to me,” Bielema said. “I’ve been very cognizant of that. I encouraged our coaches to play by the books, to do things a certain way.”

My, those are big words he is using. Poignant. Rectified. Cognizant.

And he used two out of three correctly!

I have no idea what he means when he says “I … was very poignant to the fact.” Poignant, of course, is an adjective – which, of course, modifies a noun.

    Good for Brett — and good for outing Meyer. Put the jackass on notice. Everyone knows he didn’t leave Florida to spend more time with is family — even his family doesn’t believe that. As for Brett’s English, he went to Iowa so cut him some slack. (Sorry Iowa blogger guy….couldn’t resist. Rivalry stuff.)

    And ESPN is just a tool. How fricking ignorant can they be? The OSU job is open all year. So let’s allow 85%+ of the games Urban Meyer broadcasts to be Big Ten games. Let’s give him a nice deep look into every program.

    The only benefit is we’re going to finally have a Coach the entire league can rally around in our united hatred of him. We have a Woody and a Bo back in the league.

    Could it be simply me or do a few of the remarks come across as if they are left
    by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional places, I’d like to keep up with you. Could you make a list the complete urls of your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
