Driving home for a counselor appointment today, I had an epiphany. The last time Urban Meyer 'retired', he came back and coached Ohio State just after. Now Meyer isn't known for having the best integrity in the game, with many of his recruits getting arrested and involved in some sort of trouble along with Zach Smith and his domestic violence spat. Did Urban Meyer duck out because of impending trouble with Ohio State or is he retiring for good?
As mentioned in the previous post, Meyer does suffer from an arachnoid cyst in his brain. This causes him to have severe headaches under stressful situations. Considering how stressful a football game can be, this is a legitimate reason. However, Meyer has said this and came back to coach Ohio State. He even admitted to having difficulty gauging the legitimacy of this retirement.
Which raises the question: Where will Meyer go if he does unretire? Which schools desperately need his solid recruiting and coaching at the expense of some heavy baggage?
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
