Meyer claims he didn’t intend to criticize Zook

Florida head coach Urban Meyer issued the following statement Saturday morning, saying his previous comments about the team’s locker room setup were not meant to attack his Gators predecessor, Ron Zook.

“I was asked about fights in locker rooms,” Meyer said. “I made a comment about the previous locker room arrangement and how that can lead to issues such as separating freshmen. There was no intent to criticize the previous staff or coach Zook. Obviously the locker room arrangement was that way for a while.”
