It doesn't matter how you play the game, it's whether you win or lose, and even that doesn't make that much difference. ~ Coach Finstock ~

Time with Family...

I am not one to tell someone how to run there life or judge them for their decisions, but the whole Urban Meyer hiring as ESPN makes me wonder. Urban Meyer stepped away as the head coach at the University of Florida. His only reason for leaving was to spend more time with his family and his work was not allowing him to do that. Well his new job at ESPN will have him calling games on Saturday and being a part of the coverage leading up to the weekend. That will make it tough to spend time with your kids, since they both play sports in the fall much of the time playing on Saturdays. Just want to hear people not try to play everyone, just say why you are leaving.

The best part of him taking this job is he can see what it feels like for a coach to be an ass to the media, this time he can be on the receiving end.

The good part of the story was the he had to cut his ties with Florida, he still had an office in the Athletic Department and was still on the payroll. Needless to say in the era of NCAA violations, him being on the payroll and having an office could have been an issue with him being on ESPN and talking with recruits.

Regardless of all that, hope he is ready to still get criticized. The media is just as scrutinized as the coaches at times, especially in big time college football. Good luck Urban!
