Eight Reasons Why Urban Meyer Needs To Coach The University Of Cincinnati

Eight Reasons Why Urban Meyer Needs To Coach The University Of Cincinnati

We need you now more than ever.

I know what you're thinking, this is never going to happen, it doesn't make any sense. Why would the holy and mighty Urban Meyer come to the lowly American Athletic Conference team University of Cincinnati? Well sit yourself down and prepare yourself. I'm about to throw you a curveball of logic.

Please DM this story to @OSUCoachMeyer, @ him on Twitter, do whatever you need to get him to see this.

And Urban, if you're out there, I know you're reading this. I know you're imagining it right now, you're entertaining the idea. There's a little voice in the back of your head saying "do it, Urb, what are you waiting for?" What are you waiting for Urb, do what makes sense. Come home.

1. Cincinnati is Home

On July 10, 1964, a small miracle happened in Toledo, Ohio. Urban Meyer was born. He would go on to play defensive back at the University of Cincinnati, and graduating there with a degree in Psychology. Would you look at that. Urban was a Bearcat before he was Buckeye. And once a bearcat, always a bearcat. Why would Urban not want to come back to his alma mater and bring glory to the school that gave him so much?

2. Ohio State Doesn't Need Him

Let's be honest, Ohio State was good before Urban was there, and they'll be good after he leaves. They've got the money, they've got the recruiting, they've got the brand. Ohio State isn't going anywhere for a long time. Urban is surely the best coach in the nation (fight me Nick Saban) and I know the man wants to win. But what fun is winning with a team that's been winning forever? How is Meyer going to leave a footprint on a team that already has a history of greatness? Ohio State can only go down from here. And Ohio State being good surprises no one. Everyone expects them to be good. Which brings me to...

3. The Pressure

Being the head coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes has to be one of the most stressful jobs. Urban has so much pressure from one of the biggest most passionate fan bases in the country. In a ranking system where losing one or two games can boot you out of playoff contention, Urban has to win every game and he has to win them big. And if Ohio State doesn't make it to the playoffs it's a disappointment, do you know how hard it is to make it to the playoffs? Why deal with all that stress Urban.

At UC, we have no expectations. Everyone comes here to prove themselves and then leaves to go to bigger schools. Brian Kelly gave us a glimpse of real football and then abandoned us. Butch Jones came in, gave us three solid seasons, and darted. And now were stuck with Tommy Tuberville, who has had UC on a steady decline and surely only has one more season to save his position before he gets canned.

But Urban, you've already got success. You don't have to prove anything to us, we already know you're good. You don't have to win a National Championship right away, we just want a winning season, maybe a bowl game. That's all we want right now. Please, help us.

4. The AAC is a Breeze

You've already dominated the SEC and the Big 10, so the AAC will be so easy to win. The only real competition is Houston and we almost beat them ourselves with barely-okay Tuberville. You'll breeze right through the AAC and get us in the top 10 easily. It's gonna be so easy Urb, trust me. Hell, we get good enough they might finally move us to another conference with some real competition.

5. The Legacy

Look, UC doesn't have a lot of legends. We've got Benadryl, William Taft, and George Clooney went here for like a year, and that's about it. You could be a legend here. They will build statues of you, name buildings after you, whatever you want. You bring a Championship to this city, you'll be it's savior. Cincinnati sports are in a ridiculously lousy period. The Reds are hot street trash at the moment and the Bengals lost 5 straight opening round playoff games and are struggling to win 5 games this season. The best sports team in Cincy right now is a minor league soccer team. If you made UC football relevant again, you could give the whole city something to cheer for, something to be proud of. You could be the savior of Cincinnati.

6. The Storyline

I can see the movie script writing itself. Big multi-champion football coach comes back to his alma mater to take its football program from the depths of mediocrity, to the front stage of a National Championship game. How insane would that be? Something no coach has done before, coming to a nobody football program and making it a top 5 program in the nation. It'd be one of the greatest storylines in College Football History.

7. The Recruiting

You've had first hand experience with the high school football around the Cincinnati area since you were a coach way back for the St. Xavier Bombers. And although I went to Colerain and St. X is literally the worst, they are both amazing football programs with multiple state titles under their belts, with St. X just now winning the D1 State Title as I'm writing this (but forreal Go Cards). One of Colerain's best head coaches, Kerry Coombs is actually on your staff right now. Also lets not forget La Salle, who has won 3 consecutive D2 state titles. The high school talent here in Cincinnati is top-notch and you could pull some great players and keep them in their hometown. Also UC is still a great school for students from other states too.

8. You Can Retire

We're not looking for another ten years here, just a few seasons to get things going again, maybe a championship here or there. Then you can go out knowing you raised an entire city to college football greatness. You can retire at like 59-60 and live out the rest of your years with a bank full of cash and no regrets. You could potentially go down as the greatest coach in College History, dominating with Florida, Ohio State, and UC. Who else has made championship programs out of three different schools? You Urban, that's who.

So Urban, here's where we are. I've presented the evidence, and it's crystal clear. You need to come coach the University of Cincinnati. I know it's a lot to think about, but you need to decide soon because I'm gonna graduate in 3 years so don't take too long. If you have any doubts or any questions, please DM me @TheTaulbster. I'll be waiting.

Happy Holidays!

(Please, we need you)

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

7 Things You May Not Know About College Dance Teams

Commonly mistaken for cheerleaders at sporting events, we live a life pretty much unknown to most others!


Although most of the Student Body only sees us as the girls that dance at football and basketball games, there is so much more that we do. From all of the preparations for our game day routines, workouts, working on team uniformity, a lot goes into our few minutes on the court. And for us, that's just a side hobby. Many Dance Teams nationwide compete at a National competition once a year. Most teams' goals are the same: winning a national championship. But what it takes to accomplish that is so much more than anyone sees!

We workout... a lot.


From timed mile tests to morning workouts, we NEVER stop working out. Running, lifting, core-strengthening are just some of the things we do on the side to make sure we are always at our peak physically. And it helps us look good, too.

We practice a lot, too!


From learning and perfecting game day routines to learning and perfecting our national's routine, practices never stop. We typically practice 3-5 times a week!

Game-day appearance is no joke!


From the fake eyelashes to the full face of makeup, our final look must be approved by a coach before ANY performance.

Uniformity is a NECESSITY!


From matching uniforms, to the same brand and color of lipstick, to the same exact style of eyelashes, probably the most important part of any collegiate dance team is the uniformity!

Nationals is our Super Bowl


Game days can be fun and exciting, too, but the attention is on the players, as it should be. At nationals, however, we are the ones directly representing our school and competing for the National Title! Nothing compares to the feeling!

Fundraising, fundraising, and MORE fundraising!


Collegiate Dance Team Nationals isn't cheap! Most Dance Teams have to fund at least the majority of their national's expenses, which is A LOT of money! From working kids' clinics, selling clothing, having GoFundMe pages, having Bingo events, the list can go on for days!! So much work is put in outside of practice just to raise enough money to compete at a national competition.

The audition process is ... brutal.


From learning a dance off of Youtube a few days prior to the audition and performing it in front of judges, to executing all of the necessary technical skills (no matter if its YOUR cup of tea or not), to personal interviews, to a conditioning evaluation, auditions for collegiate dance teams might be some of the toughest days of the year.

Overall, being on a college Dance Team can be very overwhelming, but being surrounded by girls with similar interests as you 24/7 who are like family to you, make it all worth it!
