I think Spencer Hall has misconstrued this quote from Jeff Demps – understandable if you’re a Gator fan whose opinion of Addazio is that you’d save him from a burning building before you’d rescue the Zooker, but that’s about it – but in any event, he’s missed the money quote from Demps in the linked article, which is:
… Like most of the older players, Demps, who will be a senior in 2011, is happy Meyer will still be accessible.
“Yes, it’s very important,” he said. “Coach Meyer, he wasn’t just a coach; he was like a father figure to all the players. He recruited us and he was always there. I think it’s very important that he’s going to still be around if we’re having problems on the field or off the field. We can always go to coach Meyer if we need anything.”
Now that’s got potential. Can you say soap opera? I thought you could. I’ve even got a theme song.
