Meyer eyes big recruiting picture

Asked Wednesday afternoon about Michigan continuing to get fat on Ohio players in recruiting — the Wolverines signed nine from the state this year — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer basically blew off the question.

It would be fun to ask Urban Meyer this question: Would you rather go unbeaten vs. Brady Hoke or Nick Saban for the next 10 years?

“It’s not just them,” he said. “You’re going to come to Ohio to get great players.”

Geez, at the least he could’ve gone with: If we wanted those nine guys, we’d have them.

Or, even better: We’ll see in four years how many Big Ten titles they’ve won.

But no. And you know why Meyer let the question slide?

Because he’s bypassing Michigan and the rest of the conference and aiming straight at Alabama.
