Urban Meyer’s “syrupy” book, Urban’s Way, will be out in early September. Gene Frenette has a few words on it in today’s Florida Times-Union where he alternates between descriptions like “interesting” and “compelling” and saying the book “reads more like a recruiting pitch.” News about the movie rights can’t be too far away.
According to an excerpt from the book, Georgia fans should know that Urban Meyer will forever remember a certain incident. Urban Meyer is not amused.
That wasn’t right. It was a bad deal. And it will forever be in the mind of Urban Meyer and in the mind of our football team. … So we’ll handle it. And it’s going to be a big deal.
Got it? Urban Meyer says what was a bad deal is a big deal to Urban Meyer and Urban Meyer’s team. It’s not quite what Urban Meyer told Terence Moore though.
On a completely unrelated note, Frenette has some encouraging words for the Georgia fullback position.
Georgia fans who are worried because starting fullback Brannan Southerland might not return from a foot operation until the Sept. 27 game against Alabama would breathe easier if they watched film on backup Shaun Chapas, a Bolles School graduate. Chapas might not be the blocking machine that Southerland is, but he’s more versatile. Chapas’ value will become evident as he gets more plays.
Versatility is fine, but a “blocking machine” is more of what’s required from that position in Richt’s offense. Southerland has shown plenty of versatility himself in the passing game, and there is no Bulldog with a better nose for the end zone.
