Fort Lauderdale, Fla.—For fans of the Georgia Bulldogs, I have some bad news and some WORSE news today.
The bad news? Florida, your hated rival, just won its second national championship in three years.
The worse news? The Gators, it appears, are just getting started.
Urban Meyer came here Friday morning to pick up all of the hardware that comes with being a national champ. Meyer said he enjoyed the first national championship he won as Florida’s head coach in 2006.
But Friday morning Meyer said he is going to enjoy this one a lot more. “I’m not sure I took the time to savor that first one because was all so new. That year we had a good team but we didn’t have a good program,” Meyer said. “Now we have both. That makes this one very special.”
