    The higher the climb, the harder the fall. After Michigan State sealed the game on tailback Jeremy Langford's 26-yard touchdown scamper with 2:16 left to play, the question soon turned to how Meyer would handle losing for the first time in three years.

    "I kept saying to him all along, 'What's it going to be like when we lose?'" Meyer's wife, Shelley, said outside Ohio State's locker room. "This what I've been looking for. Now I want to see how he reacts."

    Shelley said she's seen changes in her husband.

    "I'm confident that he's got things in perspective as opposed to two years ago," she said. "He's got perspective now. It's not life or death. It's just not."

    It's only a game. After all, you still have your health.

    The most important thing in Urbans life...is Urban.

    This game, not singing the schools traditional song, clamming up, and then EATING PIZZA BY YOURSELF ON A GOLF CART WHILE YOUR WIFE WATCHES proves that he hasn't changed one bit.

    Sad state of affairs for that broken individual...

    That is true but it is the same for all of these coaches. But I am not sure what he supposed to do share a slice with the AD?

    Agreed. We may dislike him but he has legitimate issues when losing. That 911 call after the 09 game happened and was not made up. I really do hope that he can find perspective in life.

    Not his AD and entourage....maybe it's just me, no matter what game I had just lost, seeing my wife and son would squash anything bad that just happened. Take a few minutes to honor the university that is paying you millions of dollars by singing the school song. That picture of him eating food....alone, looking horrid, while his wife walks around speaks volumes to me, and probably a bunch of other people.

    Have you seen all of these coaches after loses? You see how Saban Muschamp SOS look and act after loses? They are all build like this. They either sulk or throw hissy fits

    The loss cost Meyer at least 4 million dollars in guaranteed salary too.

    If he would have won the Big Ten championship, it would have tacked on an extra year to his current contract.

    I did wonder though...was the golf cart scene....alone with Shelly...a sign that he was trying to prioritize it? He was alone...with his wife.
    Perhaps he was finding comfort from her as I would with my wonderful wife at such a time.
    I wanted him to lose too. I cant stand tOSU. Just wondering if that twitter shot on the golf cart is really as telling as some seem to think.
    Perhaps it is, but not automatically so.

    Well, he's a "me" guy, that's for sure. But I don't fault him for that. It's the way he left and then slides into a job where he could cheat(my word) into the NC game.

    From your article:
    Meyer nailed as an imposter. If the shoe fits....

    He wasn't alone with Shelly as I see it. Just curious, where is Shelly in that pic?

    Could be. Any number of idiots on this thread will go out of their way to paint him in the worst light imaginable.
