    Do you guys think Urban Liar (aka Urban Meyer) lied about his health issues. Florida and Ohio State are so similar in fanbases. The pressure at both jobs is tremendous. Why quit on one of the most,if not the most desired job in all of College Football just to jump to another pressure cookery job not even a full test later?

    If he wants to walk into the hotass mess that is Ohio State Football, props to him. Let him do his thing. You can't deny he's a great coach and I have no doubts he will recruit people otherwise avoiding the OSU debacle.

    I think he will probably be a good one for them...He is a good coach. There are a couple of college football jobs tho that will be very hard to take over

    I have no respect for him after this move. If you're gonna walk away from coaching for health reasons, then walk away and get your life straight. Don't take an equally if not more stressful job a year later. He's pissing all over the Florida fan base by taking this job.

    I don't think he cares if you respect him. He obviously is itching to get back into coaching, so he's taking something more challenging and exciting. Good for him.

    This article pretty much sums it up:

    http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/news?slug=pf-forde_meyer_credibility_urban_myth_112711

    “So you’re Urban Meyer. … And maybe you really are filled with middle-aged regret about living an unbalanced life that leaves too little time for your wife and kids. So you do this. You listen to the family this time around. You walk away from one of the two best jobs in your profession (Texas is the other) at somewhere near the peak of your career. … You’re Dick Vermeil of the college game, and the pursuit of glory no longer justifies the grind of getting there.

    “If those things are true, and Meyer is ready to enter a rewarding new phase of life as a paternal bleacher creature, watching his three kids play sports, so be it. Wish him godspeed and good health. …

    “But if Meyer suddenly shows up in Denver to coach Tebow, he’s a con man of the highest order. If he changes his mind and comes back to Florida before it hires someone else, he’s a diva even [Brett] Favre would disdain. If he takes another job a year from now, his family will know once and for all where it ranks in his personal hierarchy of needs.

    “Guess we’ll wait and see who the real Urban Meyer is.”

    Like I said, he's pissing on a fan base that embraced him. And yeah, I'm a little bitter.

    Look how many criminals were on his Florida teams. His players stayed in the police station.

    He's never been a good guy, IMO. Just slightly less assholic than Lane Kiffin and Nick Satan Saban.

    All that coming from someone who is most likely a fan of Troy University. Most of those charges were dropped.
