Don’t Mess With Urban Meyer

Recently a reporter interviewed Florida WR Deonte Thompson and asked him the difference between Tim Tebow and Florida’s new quarterback John Brantley.  Thompson made a few remarks about how Tebow was an unorthodox quarterback and always unpredictable.  He could run the ball or throw you the ball.  When comparing Tebow to Brantley, Thompson claimed Brantley was a “real quarterback”.  Now, here is where it gets sticky.  Thompson was just trying to say that Brantley is more of a regular pro-style quarterback who does things by the book.  He gets the play and calls the play.  Tebow on the other hand would sometimes get the play and change it up.  No harm, no foul.  But, the reporter decided to print the quote as is, without clarifying what Thompson really meant.  So what happens the next time the reporter shows up to a Gator practice?  He gets chewed out by Urban Meyer and banned from future practices.  Towards the end Urban says “If I was this kids parent we’d be going at it right now”.  Now that is what I’m talking about!  You’ve got to love a coach who stands up for his kids.  Check out the video below for all the heated action:
