Urban Meyer now taking a leave of absence; Steve Addazio to be interim coach

NEW ORLEANS -- Change of plans. Florida coach Urban Meyer isn't going anywhere.

Meyer informed the UF football team on Sunday that he now plans on taking an indefinite leave of absence and that offensive coordinator Steve Addazio will be the Gators' interim head coach. Meyer informed the team before the Gators left Gainesville for New Orleans. The team is scheduled to arrive in New Orleans at 3:45 p.m. ET. A press conference is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. ET.

More coming later.

WHATEVER!!!!

FLIP FLOP!!!!!!!!!!

uf is at best an 8-4 team in 2010. SO if Urban can't handle the stress of winning, how in the hell will his heart handle non bcs???????????/

8-4 is laughable!

Great. STEVE ADAZIO FREAKING SUCKS!

I CANNOT STAND THIS GUY!!!!! HE'S SUCH AN EGOMANIAC!!!!

8-4 sounds like the best canes year recently.

UH,Rawpimple,THE U is Currently 9-3.Sounds more like the gators 3 short years ago.

Sounds to me like they need to adjust the prozac.

Cane scums die

This is better than a episode of the young and the restless.

Regardless of what urbie does have you seen A bigger dumpster fire in all your life?

Steve Addazio? Please make him intrem coach. What did you call that offense aggain Joe? Was it the bonzai?

Steve Adazzio >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Mandy Shannon


chaps your asss in a really big way doesn't it sarasota scumbag?

You're still second class scUM.

First of all I am not sarasota. Second of all if you think adazzio is > than Shannon you need to call urbie and see if he will "front" you some of his prozac. How were your pop tarts the other morning?

You can't spell scUM without Urban Meyer.

Did you ever get up the bail money for your mom?

Spin this however you want Kehoe. The bottom line is the gaytor program dosent know if its coming or freakin going!

Whats wrong kehoe. Cat got your fingers again!

I thought so. Crawl back under your rock. Or are you back in the corner?

hey kehoe, Its dark out again. we all know that means your moms out working. Lets hope she dosent have any more "misunderstandings". I would hate for you to have to make your pop tarts by yourself in the morning.

Your A punk kehoe! Stay off of my blog.

Very shocked to hear this, seems like it came out of nowhere.

Hope he gets his health issues straightened out and returns to coaching.

The banzai offense was amazing this year!!

Let's get some things straight guys....Leyer's not on Prozac...he's on Lithium. And the source of the guys confusion is that he intended to separate from his wife and engage in a common law marriage with Tiny Tim. Seems a Christmas movie had him thinking this was the right thing. But then someone reminded him that it was his DAUGHTER and NOT Timmy who was saying "I got my Daddy back". The poor bum is a mess so let's cut him some slack. Well...maybe not!

This came out of nowhere? Are you kidding me? 29 arrests, Getting drilled in the sec championship game, coaches jumping ship. This was as about as subtle as getting hit between the eyes with A sledge hammer!

What say yoe keho, or rawpimple, or what ever your calling your self!

Oh hell we all know timmy "crymearivertebow" prefers phillopino boys.

12-1

From what I hear kehoe your moms always "wet".

Dont you wish you could buy from rooms to go kehoe. well theres always rent a center loser!

Thats if you dident burn down the trailer making your pop tart.

Come on kehoe, As Mr T wold say I gotta alotta moe, I gotta alotta moe!

Hey kehoe, Dont go away mad, JUST GO AWAY!

Trying to think up something clever to type kehoe? Shyt I dont have all night einstein.

Once again we have come to the conclusion that I own this blog!

The conversation on this blog is rediculous and most of the time not even relevant to the subject at hand. Anyway, I think this is a very wise decision by Coach Meyer to step back for a few months or a year to evaluate his situation and get help. He wasn't looking for another job or more $$$ and was willing to walk away from $4 Million a year so you know it's serious. It doesn't matter whether it's a physical or mental situation he has to work out (both can be equally destructive). A friend of mine had to walk away from a $200,000 job because of continual severe anxiety attacks. Let's hope Urban can get everything under control and come back stronger than ever!!!

Can I get A Amen! I agree with you 100%. Urbie needed to back away from the situation that is the gaytor program. His mental and physical state means more than football.

Billy Gonzalez >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Randy Shannon


Actually

any coach in college football >>>>>>>>>> Randy Shannon

Have fun at another pre Jan. bowl game.

Can you guys win the ACC for once!!! or heck even show up to the conference title game.

Maybe you can bring back Schnelly and 2 live crew and start handing out money and crack again to all players. Randy Shannon was good at doing that. BAHWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA

What are you A LSU fan now. Everybody knows Billy boy made A lateral move away from the gaytors. Whats yor point Fake sarasota. Or were you just typing to see your self type!

Jesus Christ could you please send some one to this blog to have An intelegent conversation. Oh snap! I forgot this is A gaytor blog.

At least you have A little fuzz on your nutz fake sarasota, I mean kehoe, even if you are A NIMWIT.

my program sucks, I have a dumbass second rate coach, and a bunch of UF left-over recruits on my team, me and the rest of the low-rent Canes fans think that every game we lose (and we’ve been losing a bunch of them)is because of the referees, and we can never understand what it would be like to be a part of something as profound as the GatorNation, and we can’t sell out a single home game so all we can do is post despicable comments about one of the best coaches in college football as he deals with physical illnesses and one of the best college players in the history of the game who does nothing but serve the betterment of mankind, because we are pathetic excuses for human beings.

At least we have A coach. BAWAHAHAHA

In all seriousnes. I wish Urban "strightJacket" Meyer all the best.

Has nothing to do with stress..it's a brain cyst!! Knock it off we are talking about a man his family an his life.

Blahhhhhh

NO its stress. Dont you read anything about your own coach! We are talking about A man , his family, and his life. He needs to walk away from that cess pool of stress before its to late.

I heard the Canes are recruiting Elian Gonzales as their next QB...If he can sneak away from immigration, he should be able to run through ACC defenses. Holla at your boys Bryan Pata and Sean Taylor!

Has nothing to do with stress? You gaytor tools never cease to amaze me. I called this from day one but Nooo you gator fools wanted to bury your heads in the sand.

Urban Meyer doesn't know stress. Try dealing with Hurricane Andrew welfare babies, Overtown racial riots, Elian Gonzalez protesters, Bang Bus coeds, streets filled with 70+ Grandma's driving their Cadillacs, Jewish Mob scene, poor education system, Little Havana. Now that's stress and the life of a Cane

So the guy UF fan wanted to fire is now the HC???? WTF????

Meyer is not going anywhere???? WTF????

Translation:

1. Mullen, Strong, and every other respectable coach they could get to save face told UF to stick it or was unavailable.

2. UF and Meyer are simply trying to save the recruiting class before he leaves for real.

So much for "reinventing" the game of college football!

GOT UNDEFEATED?

Go 'canes!

P.S. The irony here is that everything Kehoe said about UM over the last 2 years is coming true for UF!

"Raging Dumpster fire"
"Rat's jumping off the ship"
"2nd tier coach"
"etc."
"etc."
"etc."

I hope Meyer is OK. I have no reason to feel otherwise. What's fun is knowing that 14and0toPasadenaWeGo and Alan M. (aka every other moronic name he uses) and Kehoe and tbone and the "Christian" lady who thought God was "delivering" Tebow to something special are now left wondering WTF happened! Ha Ha

what in the hell is in the gainesville water? First donovan to magic... day later goes back. meyer, im dyin.....day later i'll sit out a year. all u gaytor fans can hate on shannon but, he's been with the program since the mid 80's (left for 2 years to be with jimmie johnson as LB coach with dolphins). shannon is from mia, understands mia, and u can't tell me meyer understands what some of these kids in south florida goes through. He's not in utah anymore.

Futhermore... U know what gaytors, I'll give u meyer is a better Head Coach.
meyer HAS been at it longer than shannon. Personally, i like shannon as hc, but he does make decisions that are rookie mistakes and should be grown out of by now. Meyer does do a decent job with special teams and clock management. the u spaecial teams does lack consistency and execution. The joke is.....shannon is worried about our image. Go look at the end of the GT,VA & USF games, he's so worried 'bout running up the score. He damn near gave away the gt game, cause they were only a dropped 50 yd pass away, from a one score game. My opinion is that shannon puts more into their school and personal conduct than JUST football! U all seen where the athletic academics are ranked and the arrest record, pretty damn good. UF not so much.

don't U ever forget Soldy
