Nothing’s more important than spending time with his wife and kids. He never wanted to coach anywhere else after wearing the orange and blue. He wasn’t going to raid Florida’s football program for staffers.
By now, it’s become pretty clear that what Urban Meyer says and what Urban Meyer does can be two completely different things. So prepare for the coach’s latest canard:
“I’m sure I’ll watch some (of the Gator Bowl between Florida and Ohio State). It’s hard or me to sit and watch a whole game. I think people are making more of it than I would. At some point, that story is going to go away.”
Uh, yeah. As soon as the fourth quarter ends on January 2nd in Jacksonville. Until then, the 2012 Gator Bowl is in reality the Urban Meyer Bowl.
And if you think the head coach at Ohio State won’t be watching his new squad battle his old squad — if for no other reason than to simply gauge his new troops’ abilities against athletes he’s familiar with — then you’ve probably believed every other fabrication Meyer has spun in the past 24 months.
“I want to form my opinions after we coach them,” Meyer said of his new Buckeye players. “It’s a great opportunity for these players to push restart. I’m not going to develop an opinion based on this game.”
Maybe not, but the idea that he won’t be watching the game from start to finish is downright laughable.
