|Is Urban on a return trip to Ohio?|
Urban Meyer left Florida citing health concerns and wanting to spend more time with his family. Picking up and moving to Columbus to coach at Ohio State is not exactly what his doctor would prescribe, I'm sure. And he can forget about that precious family time he was talking about.
If I'm an Ohio State fan, I'm a little cautious about my jubilation. If Meyer becomes the head coach at OSU, then it's pretty obvious he just flat out lied about his health so he could leave a Florida Gators squad sans Tim Tebow. If you want to step down because it's just not fun anymore that's fine. A coach should want to coach. But don't say it's because of your health and then take a job at maybe one of the must stressful gigs in the country.
But OSU fans are so punch-drunk in love with the idea of "Urban to the rescue", that all that might not even be on the radar in Columbus.
And who's hiring Urban? Gene Smith, the guy who's likely to get axed next month when the NCAA comes calling again?
A year ago at this time, Michigan fans were swooning for Jim Harbaugh. All I'm saying is, be careful what you wish for. All that glitters ain't always gold.
