CoachingSearch - The annual Ohio coaches convention in Ohio always has some memorable moments, and it was no different this year.
Urban Meyer spoke to the audience for an hour over the weekend, and it had nothing to do with Xs and Os. The general theme of his speech was about looking out for kids and making sure they find success off the field. Meyer’s entire speech is below, and I recommend you take the time to listen to the whole thing. I’ll close this post with one of the craziest stories I’ve heard about a coach. It shouldn’t be surprising it’s about Woody Hayes.
“He reaches down and grabs this box, slides the top and there was something in the box moving around. He reaches in and he pulls out this turtle. He reaches down, this turtle’s snapping and he says, ‘I’m going to show you toughness.’ He unzips his pants and takes out whatever he takes out. The turtle reaches up and snaps at him. You see the veins and the sweat (on Hayes). He screams at the coaches, ‘That’s toughness! That’s f’n toughness!’ He reaches down, pokes the turtle right in the eye and it falls off. He wipes the sweat off his forehead and says, ‘That’s the problem. We don’t have anybody in this room tough enough to do that right there.
“(One assistant) raises his hand and says, ‘Coach, I’d do this. Just promise not to poke me in the eye.’”
Awesome story. Back in the glory days of sports. When men were men and let turtles bite their cock in the middle of a locker room. That’s toughness. That’s fucking toughness. Kids these days are so pampered with their televised signing days and scholarships and fancy uniforms and equipment. Want everything handed to them on their way to waltzing into the NFL. Woody Hayes would have never stood for any of these soft ass cupcake puss balls. You let a turtle chomp down on your dick or you don’t see the fucking field all season.
