Bill Belichick on Urban Meyer: 'He's a great friend'

Bill Belichick on Urban Meyer: 'He's a great friend'

One of the most football-tormented brains in college football history began the tricky process of shutting down large areas of its normal function in favor of other areas Tuesday.

"Urban Meyer's gonna sit-out for a year, he's miraculously gonna get healthy, he'll only be 55 years old, which is younger than Nick Saban was when he went to Alabama and started his dominant dynasty".

It's not often that a journalist says a college football coach made any part of his job easier, but Urban Meyer certainly made writing an Ohio State prediction column easier.

Listen to Clay's full take below.

Can Washington, which has scored more than 28 points only once in its last seven games, make big plays? Then he spoke of Ohio State royalty such as Archie Griffin, John Cooper, Earle Bruce and Jim Tressel, and he said, "And I just felt an obligation to not let them down".

Aston Villa boost as Chelsea won't sell Tammy Abraham to Wolves
According to Goal , Chelsea have rubbished reports that Wolves have agreed a deal to sign Abraham on a permanent deal this month. Abraham's move will be a huge blow for Villa, who are now 10th in the league and five points off the play-off spots.


Despite all the public complaints about the lack of competition during the bowl season, it's clear that sports fans were tuning in to the Rose Bowl between Ohio State and Washington. Petersen stated that he grew up watching this bowl game and just being able to be at the Rose Bowl Game is an accomplishment. Head coach Meyer will be looking to his starting quarterback Dwayne Haskins to set the pace and keep the Buckeyes on top. Burr-Kirven is just one of the players that we could see being drafted to the National Football League next year due to his performance at Washington.

Washington had an interesting 2018 regular season, but finished with a 10-3 regular season record and won the Pac-12 Championship. Ohio State has a lot to lose here as I'm sure all the players are wanting to send coach Meyer off with a bowl game victory before he retires.

The 9.7 overnight for the Buckeyes' victory is the highest-rated non-playoff New Year's Six game, overtaking the 2017 Rose Bowl.

Ohio State is returning to the Rose Bowl Game for the first time since 2010.

Coach Chris Petersen dropped to 1-4 in bowls during his otherwise remarkable tenure at Washington, including consecutive defeats in the Peach, Fiesta and Rose.
