Meyer asked reporter to punch me in the mouth

Blogging live from SEC media days...

HOOVER, Ala. -- First things first. Since the SEC media days are really just one big promotional event for the conference and nothing substantial (news or otherwise) ever comes from them, let's start by saying that Urban Meyer has been the event's best dressed coach ... he must'a just got a big raise or something.

I offer Meyer this compliment to smooth over any hard feelings the coach might already harbor towards me. This is a joke, of course. Meyer could care less. But, I was a bit alarmed when, during the middle of Meyer's press conference today, he asked another reporter to turn around punch me in the mouth. Here's why...

ME: What is the plan if Tim Tebow gets hurt?
Dsc00611 COACH MEYER: Ooh. Turn around and punch him right in the mouth, will you (smiling)? Next question. I don't know. Make sure your punter...
No, the first time that I've been on a staff, we have four quality quarterbacks. We have Johnny Brantley from Ocala. You have Cameron Newton. You got Bryan Waggener. We have three guys. That's another battle we're looking forward to.
Cam Newton has a bit of an upper hand because he went through spring practice. We also direct snap it to other people. We try to be a bit creative at that position.
[Tebow getting hurt is] something that is going ... for that to happen would hurt our chances significantly at being successful.
