VIDEO: Urban Meyer Calls Penn State Players 'Our' Players, World Explodes

Urban Meyer works for ESPN. This means his day job places him somewhere in between commenting on news and making news. Though he's denied he's been in touch with the Penn St. Nittany Lions about a mythical upcoming head coaching job, he did offer up a piece of evidence to the contrary, for those who were really, really looking for evidence to the contrary:

Penn State message boards lit themselves on fire with emotion.

While Kegs 'n' Eggs is right in asserting one would not claim these quarterbacks unless one was contractually obligated to do so, it would be a fun experiment to go through a broadcast and plot each misused word, then try to plot future career paths based on that.

It would not be fun at all to do this, but if you did, you'd convince yourself Jon Gruden was minutes away from becoming a Coast Guard rescue dog.

The reasoned take on what we've just heard: Meyer has been in touch with Penn State and wanted to have a little fun with the rumors. Pronoun accidents count as fun for animatronic football geniuses from the future. Things are different then.
