Yesterday, Buckeyes WR Evan Spencer said that OSU would “wipe the floor” with the nations other top teams. After that story made the rounds, Spencer apologized even though seriously what is he supposed to think? Well that wasn’t enough for head coach Urban Meyer. Here is what he had to say when asked about it today:
Meyer on Evan Spencer's comments: "I'm very disappointed. I know Evan well enough. I talked to him briefly." …

Interestingly enough, had Meyer just no commented or sidestepped the question, it would have just gone away. Most people that heard the story had already moved on but it now gives people an excuse to talk about it again.
Plus, Meyer just seems to live up to his jerk reputation on this one. You have to protect your player here.
