Barnhart on the demise of Urban Meyer

Interesting eulogy from the AJC's Tony Barnhart on Urban Meyer, and not a series of verbal soft tosses by any means.

In short, Barnhart writes that the uber-successful Florida coach often cut corners for wins, from how he disciplined his players to how he filled moats and raised walls to establish a paranoid "us against them" air around his program.

In the end, though, Barnhart reaches the same conclusion of many of us. Meyer and Florida meant football excellence. His departure leaves a lesser SEC. Enjoy

Will the ACC's FSU and Miami be able to take advantage in in-state recruiting??

I know it's a free world with free speech,but if they let this chump coach anywhere again,it will be as bad as bill clinton pointing to the tv screen and america saying,"i did not have sex with that woman" or john edwards telling america that he had an affair,but that he did not father that baby with reilly. OOPS!! Wrong on both accounts boys!!I think all this "family" talk is just an excuse to get out of coaching for a year or two,and then go to another school and reload.His family will say they were the ones who told him to get back into coaching,but this is all scripted.

Hope the Gators got all they wanted the past decade. The Noles are back in the drivers for the upcoming future.

Whoops: an attack by a raging homonym. Fixed. This Alabama education says thankee.

If Meyer really is the best coach who ever walked the planet, let's see him prove it by doing what Spurrier has done twice (UF, SC) and what Bill Snyder did at Kansas State - take a team that has never amounted to anything and make it annually relevant.

How about Notre Dame in a couple of years?

Just another delusional f$u fan.
Hope you enjoyed your first win in 7 years of UF. It might be another 7 before you get your next one.
