You know, my first thought upon reading this was that if that indeed wound up being the pairing in the BCS title game, it might be the first time in my adult life that I’d root for Florida to be Florida in the fullest sense of the word. Not just win, in other words, but win classy. A very late touchdown to go up by 35. Tebow doing the Gator Chomp over a prostrate Jimmy Clausen. Urban Meyer pointing and staring at Charlie Weis.
(Actually, that’s not true. My first thought was disbelief at how ESPN continues to allow Lou Holtz to steal money from it by embarrassing himself with comments that would get any other mortal tossed out of the business accompanied by gales of laughter. But I digress.)
Anyway, I realized that’s a pipe dream. Notre Dame is Corch Meyers’ dream school on the one hand, so he’s going to keep a tight lid on the emotional side, but on the other hand, a game like that would present an opportunity for Urban to send a message to all the people who have speculated about his future employment. So in the end, the game would be little more than an efficient, robotic beat down. What’s the fun in watching that?
