Urban Meyer has a case of potty mouth while responding to fellow Big Ten coaches' criticism.

Urban Meyer has only been head football coach of Ohio State for a little over two months, but he's getting a nasty little reputation in the Big Ten as a coach who goes after other college's recruits. Meyer's "what's mime is mine, what's yours is mine" recruiting philosophy isn't winning him any friends in fellow Big Ten coaches like Michigan State's Mark Dantonio and Wisconsin's Bret Bielema, who have openly criticized his recruiting style.

Worse for Meyer: Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez is reportedly meeting with Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany about the way he put his 2012 recruiting class together.

Meyer isn't taking the criticism of his recruiting practices lying down. He  fired back Friday morning at an Ohio High School coaches clinic. His response included a touch of the potty mouth.

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

Uh, Urban, that's not Tim Tebow-approved language, you know that?  It's certainly not win you any friends in the Big Ten, either. It's proof that you can take the coach out of Florida, but you can't take the Florida out of the coach.
