The internet is a complicated place. That’s not just because of all the content that people create, but also how it was created and distributed in the first place. In this episode of “On Being,” philosopher Anna Akhmatova talks about what she calls ‘the dark web’ — websites where individuals have broken free from traditional social limitations to explore their darkest desires without fear or shame.”
“A Lot of Those Things Were Broken There” is a phrase that was said by the character, Jack, in the movie “A Lot of Things”. Read more in detail here: broken things.
When players get prolonged time off during the season, it is the most nerve-wracking period for any NFL team. Coaches do their hardest to establish ground rules for players to follow so that these young guys do not get into trouble when away from the team facilities. Chuck Pagano, a long-time NFL coach, has five guidelines for things to avoid during lengthy vacations that he always communicated with his players. He spoke on Pat McAfee’s program on Wednesday to discuss these principles and how the Jacksonville Jaguars’ beleaguered head coach, Urban Meyer, violated more than one of them last week.
Before a lengthy week off, former NFL head coach Chuck Pagano cautioned his players about five things.
On a weekly basis, Pat McAfee, a former NFL punter who now hosts the Pat McAfee Show 2.0, invites back his former Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano.
The former coach discusses the most hotly debated NFL issues of the day, which this week included the Urban Meyer controversy.
Pagano asked McAfee if he recalled the five things the coach and his staff warned players about before a bye week or after a Thursday night game. The facts were a bit fuzzy for the former West Virginia Mountaineer. As a result, Pagano reviewed the five things “that may send you sideways,” which include:
- Going out late at night
Pagano cited the ancient adage “nothing good occurs after midnight” to emphasize his argument. “A lot of those things were broken there,” he said, referring to the Urban Meyer affair.
Urban Meyer seems to have broken many of Pagano’s guidelines, as well as others.
I’m curious whether fans realize how uncommon it was for Urban Meyer not to travel home with the team last week. I can’t remember a scenario nearly comparable in my 16 years covering the NFL.
That alone astounded me.
5 October 2021 — Stephen Holder (@HolderStephen)
Meyer made his first major error when he didn’t travel back with the squad after the team’s post-Thursday night game and bye week regulations were broken.
Many long-serving members of the sports media have noted how uncommon this is. Stephen Holder of The Athletic tweeted that in his 16 years covering the NFL, he “can’t remember a scenario remotely comparable” and that Meyer’s decision to remain in Ohio after the defeat “blew my mind.”
Meyer’s absence from the team aircraft, according to Amy Trask of The Athletic, constituted the coach “deserting his squad and forsaking his duties.” Courtney Cronin of ESPN said on Twitter that not flying back was “very odd.”
Meyer exacerbated his problems by allegedly violating at least three of Pagano’s five rules after failing to join the team aircraft.
Meyer’s ill-fated excursion to the pub seems to have included drink and women, according to social media pictures and videos from the night. And, although we don’t know what time of night all of this occurred, the fact that he placed himself in that position after a family meal implies he broke at least the spirit of Pagano’s “nothing good occurs after midnight” rule.
Meyer’s last blunder, according to the former Colts coach, was that he didn’t “own it.”

After laying out his rules and speculating that Urban Meyer had broken many of them, Pagano informed McAfee and company that the Jaguars coach had committed one more egregious error after the fact.
He should have just gone in [to the Jaguars’ facilities] and ignored the fact that he wanted to have supper here. My family lives just across the street, and we have photos,’ no way. You just go in and own that s***, and you tell the men. ‘Hey, I really screwed up.’ All you have to do now is go in and own it, hoping that time will cure all scars. We can win a few games and regain their confidence.
Urban Meyer, according to Chuck Pagano
Meyer’s return to trust and legitimacy, Pagano said, would be tough, particularly for a coach who is urging his players not to do things like this. It’s also more challenging during COVID-19, when coaches and organizations have tightened the screws on attempting to regulate players’ extracurricular activities.
“Man, I don’t even know how I could go back in that building,” the former Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears defensive coordinator said to McAfee, bringing the issue back to his own experiences.
