A behind the scenes look at Meyer's retirement

This whole thing is tragic as much as it is comical...

From UF's Scout site...

"As he was finishing, he was telling us for most of us this will be good because some of us need to start over and make a new impression with another coach. Near the end of the speech the freshman class was going crazy, saying they were all leaving and they kind of lost it for the most part. It really hit those guys hard, but to the others it was not as emotional. It was mainly a dead silence and everyone other than the freshmen were just looking around.

Think any of those kids have buyers remorse?

Then there is this take...

The resignation of Florida coach Urban Meyer on Wednesday came as a surprise to many, but not former Orlando Sentinel reporter Jeremy Fowler. Fowler covered the Gators for two years, including Meyer’s resignation last year that lasted 24 hours before he decided to return.

"You could tell that Urban was burned out last year," Fowler said.

Meyer confronted Fowler last spring after Fowler used a quote from receiver Deonte Thompson that Meyer took exception to.

I hope Meyer finds peace.

The guy is a weird dude with NO sense of humor...comes from his relationship with his father who I hear is 10 times more intense and humorless...think of the "Great Santini" on 'roids...
