Urban Meyer Cured of Teboculosis

Posted: November 28, 2011 by RenzReport in NFL

After leading Florida to 2 SEC Championships (2006, 2008) and 2 National Championships (2006, 2008), Urban Meyers failed to win back-to-back conference titles in 2009 by losing in rare fashion (32-13) to eventual National Champions, Alabama. The loss to Alabama prompted Meyer to take a leave of absence from the team citing health problems, but quickly returned in time to coach Florida to a 51-24 win over Cincinnati. Following the game, there was much speculation whether Meyer would return to coach Florida in 2010 especially with the loss of elite QB Tim Tebow and a recruiting class that many of which can be seen playing on Sunday’s.

After much speculation of his retirement, Meyer returned to coach the Gators during the 2010 season. With a depleted team, Meyer was able to lead the Gators to a 8-4 record and 4-4 in conference. Following the season, Meyer again cited the health concerns and decided leave Florida and take up an analyst job at ESPN.

Perhaps it wasn’t a case of bad health and high stress load, but it was the fact that Meyer couldn’t win with a young recruiting class to build the program up all over again and especially without Tebow. Now Meyer brings his gimic spread offense to the Big 10 and plans to lead Ohio State back to the glory days of the Big 10. Florida was a great job, but playing in the SEC is work and classes must be strong every year to win. At least in the Big 10, one would expect Meyer and Ohio State to be at the top of the polls year in and year out by playing in a week Big 10 division in comparison to the opponents he faced weekly in the SEC.

    The competition was just too much in the SEC for him without Tebow, Cooper, Percy Harvin, and all them great college players he had.
