Colin Cowherd Asked Urban Meyer Why He Didn’t Recruit Joe Burrow To Ohio State

Colin Cowherd vs. Urban Meyer.

Joe Burrow is tearing things up this season at LSU. FS1's Colin Cowherd has apparently taken notice.

Recently, Cowherd hosted Fox Sports colleague and former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer on his show. Among the topics they discussed was Burrow, who played for Meyer at OSU before transferring.

At one point in the conversation, Cowherd asks Meyer if he knows Burrow and then wonders how he got out of Ohio. Meyer took the odd questions in stride and answered them fully.

You can see the clip below.

Now, maybe Cowherd was messing with Meyer by asking him about Burrow in this manner. That is certainly a more flattering possibility than if he honestly didn't know Burrow played at Ohio State.

The chyron at the bottom of the screen specifically mentions Meyer's "former QB." That means at least somebody knew the background story here.

If Cowherd was only joking here, it backfired on him. This clip is going around on social media and he's getting laughed at for appearing as if he didn't do his homework.
