He DID oversign, Brutus. He just didn't oversign as many as Alabama or LSU.
He recruited a lot of players that got into some serious trouble and garnered a reputation for having an "outlaw" program.
Let's not make Meyer out to be some sort of holy crusader against all that's unholy in big-time football, please. Many of us got enough of that from OSU fans with Tressel.
Meyer is a fantastic coach. He has a fantastic system. (Or at least did while at Florida.) He should, barring an unfortunate setback in his health or a lack of focus brought about by a brush with mortality, make Ohio State a national title contender in short order.
But he's not a paragon of virtue. He did, after all, coach in the SEC.
