So, the bat-shit craziness has come to this: a Florida writer slams Urban Meyer by living vicariously through Steve Spurrier’s South Carolina career. Am I going mad, or is it everybody else?

Nothing but typical of today’s society. What have you done for me lately? That is all it is. The same guys were praising Urban’s greatness after beating OU in the BCS title game. Yet these same dorks, pounded on him for losing a single game to Alabama in 2009 (26-2 over a two year span).
I am hardly a fan of Meyer, but this is sheer insanity.
I must have missed something. What are Florida fans pissed about, exactly? That Meyer left the program? Or that he apparently did recruit below the top 1% of the top 1%, and left them with a roster full of drama? I’m certainly no defender of Meyer, but I don’t see the cause for righteous indignation here. To the rest of the country, this all just feels like Florida fans are finally pulling their heads out of the asses and seeing what everyone else saw the whole time — a giant douche who could win football games. Hard to fault Meyer for that.
+1. Such fans and program sycophants in the media are either willfully blind or stupid or both. Just like Lane Kiffin, Bobby Petrino, or Nick Saban, guys like Meyer are exactly what everyone else outside the walls of your program thought they were. When the veil is inevitably lifted (the guy leaves for another job or is sacked in disgrace), I find the level of outrage, indignation, and betrayal amusing. You go to bed with a whore, then you wake up with a whore……unless she steals your shit and leaves before you wake up. Too bad, Gators.
Whew. When I read the title I thought you were talking about the Tide.
Hear about the trophy getting smashed? And it wasn’t even at Wal Mart or Big Lots.
Have a good day,
You’re all right by me.
Now that Corch is gone, it’s like all these Florida beat writers are singing “Ding Dong, the witch is dead.”
Gotta love those intrepid sports writers in The Peninsular State Just Below Georgia. Well…not really.
I stand corrected.
Scene : Statuary works where great works of FU art is commissioned.
“Who’s the joker who recarved the unwanted Meyer casting model head into a glans penis”
” Let’s get busy on that historical model for the future nude casting model of Spurrier’s statue. Make sure it has a smaller dick because that’s what we’re trying to project.”
And bigger boobs
And slightly saggy.
SOS is gonna have the last laugh over Foley’s refusal to hire him back after all. That said, Urban Meyer won 2 BCSNCs for Florida and now the fans/sportswriters turn on him like this after he leaves? Florida and Meyer deserve each other.
Yeah, but Fu looks classy beside that hypocrite.
