Huntley Johnson, MVP

There’s a reason Corch had that fucker on speed dial.

That is an accurate number, per the New York Times.

A roster on the university’s Web site lists 121 players, 41 of whom have been arrested, either in college or afterward, and sometimes both. That number included 16 players on that season’s final two-deep roster, nine of whom were starters, as well as a kicker, punter and returner. Several of those players went on to the N.F.L., and one, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, later won the Heisman Trophy playing for Auburn.

Definitely a special team.  Mrs. Corch was pretty special, too.

After Hernandez’s arrest, Florida declined to comment. Meyer, about to start his second season as coach of Ohio State, initially declined to answer questions about Hernandez, a player who reportedly went to regular Bible study in Meyer’s home.

But Meyer’s wife, Shelley, posted on her Twitter page, “When will we start holding individuals accountable for their own decisions/actions and stop blaming any/everyone else?” She added the hashtag “liveyourliferight.”

Praise Jesus!

But in 2009, the number of arrests was such that The Orlando Sentinel, which covers the university, decided to maintain an online database to keep track of them.

I guess those Bible studies didn’t take real well.

Torn between two lovers

Try to read this paragraph without chuckling.

Multiple sources tell FootballScoop that veteran coach Charlie Strong, who rose to notoriety in coaching circles in part because of his great Florida Gators’ defenses, was planning to return to the Florida program to work alongside veteran defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, but appears instead to have chosen to go with Meyer.

Hard to believe Charlie turned down an opportunity to work with Towel Boy, but I guess the lure of Corch was too strong to resist.

Ask the expert

Wait.  He’s not gonna discuss how to ignore it?

Does having Huntley Johnson on speed dial count as fixing it?

Well played, Corch.

Gotta admit, leaking the news you’re not taking a job offer from Texas may be an even more effective way of kneecapping Tom Herman than taking the job outright.  Now Urban can sit back and enjoy the sound Herman makes twisting in the wind for the next couple of weeks until the end mercifully comes.

Corch, agent of chaos

You might wonder what a new agency that would advise athletic departments on adapting to the coming NIL marketplace would see in bringing Urban Meyer on as a “coaching consultant”.  Allow Corch to explain his value:

Meyer, who will be the coaching consultant, predicted extraordinary demand for Altius’ services. Coaches’ time and attention in 2020 has been totally consumed by the pandemic, social justice causes and uncertainty around the 2020 season itself, Meyer said, so few of them have given full consideration to what NIL rights might mean.

The kind of guidance and expertise that Altius promises could provide its clients with a leg up in recruiting the top athletes who might be in position to benefit from NIL the most, the coach said.

“Universities will adapt, everyone will adapt,” Meyer said. “But I know a coach is going to want help in this space. He’s going to want to know what other people are doing. The biggest thing is what the NCAA compliance is going to look like. … This is going to be very chaotic for quite a while.”

Translation:  he’s there to help coaches figure out how to push the envelope with boosters.

Corch: “No.”

Really, they could have shut down this article after the sixth word in the header without changing the message.

Heartbreaking?  Urbs, I do not think that word means what you think it means.

Although I suppose I should be grateful he didn’t say they’ll handle it, and it’s going to be a big deal.

Practice what you preach.

Yes, if there’s one thing we associate with Urban Meyer’s Florida teams, it’s their humility.

The man is a living testament to the concept that if you win big, people will swallow your bullshit endlessly.
