Urban Meyer, Bret Bielema Have Different Views Of Recruiting

It's about that time of the day where coaches begin to unwind, talk about their signing class and, of course, fire shots at rivals. Being from the Pac-12 neck of the woods, I've seen plenty of fun recruiting misadventures the past few weeks -- from the Washington-Cal coaching shakeup to recruits changing their minds, then doing it again. But I'm not sure it compares to the short war of words that went down in Big Ten country on Wednesday.

We're going to put Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema down in the "not a fan" category when it comes to new Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, who plucked Kyle Dodson from the Badgers.

Oh, but Meyer had a response!

And you know what, he's right. All is fair in love, war and college football recruiting. Play by whatever that gentleman's agreement is and you'll die by it. As we've seen in the last week, and even on Wednesday, recruits will flip right up until the last moment. So why sit on the sidelines?
