Anyone following the team since Brown first arrived on campus knows by now that when Brown gets a chance to speak, you're usually in for unintentional hilarity at worst, and world class Internet worthy trolling at best.

Earlier in the afternoon, at Urban Meyer's weekly Monday press conference, Meyer was asked a question about Brown and his high school career to which he replied, "First of all, I bet he was a very poor running back. You can tell him I said that."
