Urban Meyer Is A Recruit Burglar

It's true! You may have noticed in today's Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's lone commit to the 2013 class just uncommitted and gave a verbal to Ohio State. It's perfectly legal to do so. But it's also a good way to start off on the wrong foot with your neighbors.

That may not matter much when you consider West Virginia and Ohio State rarely play football. Holgorsen and Meyer might not ever be in the same room with each other. But when you steal from another Big 10 coach, things get a little chippy. Just ask Rich Rodriguez.

After Rich Rodriguez and his staff stole commits from Purdue, Joe Tiller referred to Dick Rod as a "Guy in a wizard hat selling snake oil".

Meyer found out as well when he made a grab for a Wisconsin recruit. It's not necessarily Meyer's fault, coming from the SEC. They do that sort of thing. But the Big 10 is a bit different. Or at least it was. How they deal with the recruit burglar over time may just change that.
