Florida coach Urban Meyer can’t rein in his controversial comments

GAINESVILLE —
Sometimes Urban Meyer just can’t help himself.
The Florida coach said Tuesday he was “not going to say much ever again,” and two minutes later he was asked about locker-room culture — the same topic that created national headlines last week and prompted former Gators coach Ron Zook to release a scathing public statement.

Meyer’s opinion slowly crept out again.
“I know that was beat to death in the media, but that has really helped to have a freshman sitting next to a [Brandon] Spikes or right there as opposed to ‘Go back in the other room,’ ” Meyer said.
He quickly added before walking away, “It’s no one’s fault, but that’s the way it was.”
