“But what I didn’t want to have happen, and I made this clear to Jeremy, if I am able to go coach, I want to coach at one place, the University of Florida. It would be a travesty, it would be ridiculous to all of a sudden come back and get the feeling back, get the health back, feel good again and then all of a sudden go throw some other colors on my shirt and go coach. I don’t want to do that. I have too much love for this University and these players and for what we’ve built.” – Urban Meyer [Two Years Ago, Urban Meyer Thought It Would Be a “Travesty” and “Ridiculous” To Coach Another Team | The Big Lead]
The Ohio State University school and Meyer are seemingly a perfect match for each other. Meyer is definitely an “Ohio Guy” playing DB at Cincinnati which more than enough qualification for the “Ohio Guy” tag – complete with shady reasons for leaving a declining Florida program (obviously through no fault of his own) and a perfect record against Michigan as a head coach.
Meyer has embraced all of the Buckeye traditions like the Buckeye leaf helmet stickers, the victory bell, Brutus Buckeye, Tunnel of Pride and the Captain’s Breakfast. Did you know he has embraced two lesser known Buckeye traditions? The HGH and Tattoo traditions. Take a gander at the pecs, pierced nipple and totally awesome tats. Most people don’t realize that Ohio Public Schools actually offer shop classes that teach Ohio kids how to give tattoos.
Has anyone ever met somebody from Ohio that didn’t have a tat? Not me.
I would recommend that Ohio State invest in some new helmet stickers, a sticker with a marijuana leaf. At Florida, his players were always getting caught smoking or dealing weed.
