Some unsolicited advice for Florida coach Urban Meyer: Coach, make sure you enjoy Friday night’s Sugar Bowl because as soon as the game is over you, sir, are on the clock.
I know you told everybody that you’re going to get away from the job and battle some of those inner demons that made you decide to resign for about 12 hours last weekend. In your own mind that may be exactly what you intend to do.
But fair or not, and many in the Gator Nation will say it’s not fair, life is about to get even more complicated for you.
Why? Because from this point forward there will be only one story written about football at the University of Florida: What is Urban Meyer is doing or not doing and when will he return or not return?
What about recruiting? Is he involved or not? How much is he involved? Are opposing schools hammering Florida because of the uncertainty? (Yes). Will Lane Kiffin bring it up when he’s in somebody’s living room? (A most certain yes.)
What about spring practice? Where will Urban be? Will he be in the meetings? Will he be at the beach? Will he be texting recruits while he’s at the beach? What about the spring game? Will even there be a spring game? Will Urban be at the spring game or will he be at the beach texting recruits?
