RECRUITING UPDATE: Gators have three or four spots to fill; Who do you want?

GAINESVILLE -- OK, the last couple of days have been crazy for Gator Nation. First, Wondy Pierre-Louis' family is affected by the earthquake in Port-au-Prince, then Pierre-Louis allegedly chokes his girlfriend, then Pierre-Louis goes missing, then Pierre-Louis goes to jail, then former UF broadcaster Steve Babik is arrested for allegedly doing really bad things. Man, I didn't get into sports to cover all this craziness!

Let's refocus on some good news. The UF football team is putting together a historic recruiting class for the ages, the universe and everything after. Florida and coach Urban Meyer recently earned the Gators' 25th commitment. Linebacker Michael Taylor of Atlanta Westlake is the new man onboard after de-committing from the Tennessee Volunteers. Taylor is a bit on the small side (6-0, 195 pounds) but what he lacks in stature he apparently more than makes up for with punch. He's a strong tackler and his recruiting stock has risen considerably after he was named a MVP of the Under Armour all-star game.

Rivals lists Taylor as a three-star prospect while ESPN has tagged him with four stars and a national ranking of No. 123. ESPN tends to put more stock into intangible abilities while Rivals usually sticks to measurable talent. (Just my observation.)

A quick side note on Taylor: His high school coach at Atlanta Westlake is former Deerfield Beach and Fort Lauderdale Dillard coach Greg Minnis. Minnis is originally from Miami and is a cousin of Miami native Snoop Minnis of Florida State fame. ANYWAY, Taylor de-committed from Tennessee following the Lane Kiffin fiasco and the Vols' loss was the Gators' gain.

As it stands today, Florida's recruiting class is currently ranked No.1 by both ESPN and Rivals. ESPN recently released its final Top 150 list of national prospects and the Gators have 16 players on the list! Wily ol' Urban Meyer is stockpiling a mind-numbing amount of talent. By comparison, Texas is second on the ESPN Top 150 list with 13 commitments. Alabama is third with 10. Here are the total number of recruits listed on the ESPN Top 150 of Florida's traditional rivals: Georgia (8), Florida State (7), Tennessee (4) and Miami (3). Miami has apparently adopted a slightly different recruiting philosophy this year. I don't know what it is exactly, but it's noticeably different from years past.

Florida hopes to sign the Southeastern Conference maximum of 28 recruits on Feb.3. If all of Florida's 25 commitments hold pat, then only three spots remain. If one of Florida's recruits defects (say, maybe, Demar Dorsey of Lauderdale Lakes Boyd Anderson), then Florida will have four spots available on National Signing Day.

For the purposes of this blog post, we're going to assume that Dorsey de-commits and heads elsewhere (USC, for example). Some people will probably disagree with this logic, but I don't care. With four scholarships remaining, the Gators' coaching staff must be ultra-selective. These next few weeks are when Meyer can really put Florida's recruiting class atop Mount Olympus. He's supposed to be some kind of great "closer" when it comes to these types of things, so we'll see. Last year, Meyer watched in disgust as Nu'Keese Richardson signed with Tennessee and Greg Reid signed with Florida State. (Save your comments on Richardson, please.)

Here are the top seven recruits on Urban's wish list. Out of these seven, which four do you want to see in orange and blue?

1. Ivan McCartney, receiver, Miramar
Others involved: Miami, West Virginia
The Skinny: All things being equal, my gut tells me Urban would want this player above all others. McCartney is a dynamic receiver who recently helped Miramar win its first football state championship in school history. And, don't forget, Urban would love to pull this player away from the Canes. McCartney (6-1, 165 pounds) has been secretive about his recruiting but he does have a few friends up at West Virginia. Former Miramar quarterback Geno Smith is the Mountaineers' projected starter. Grades could be an issue here for both Florida and Miami.

2. Christian Green, receiver, Tampa Catholic
Others involved: Florida State, Georgia, Miami and South Florida
The Skinny: Christian Green (6-2, 190 pounds) visited Florida this weekend along with Tampa Catholic teammate Chaz Green. From what I could see, Florida assistant coach Dan McCarney was really focusing on the Greens during the UF men's basketball game on Saturday. Christian Green isn't as fast as McCartney but he is stronger.

3. Seantrel Henderson, offensive lineman, St. Paul, Minn.
Others involved: Miami, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Southern Cal
The Skinny: OK, here's a guy who could trump all of the Gators' current recruits. Apparently, Henderson (6-8, 305 pounds) is that good. People are comparing him to Bryant McKinnie, if that tells you anything. He's been hush-hush about his recruiting, so where he ends up is anyone's guess.

4. Chaz Green, offensive lineman, Tampa Catholic
Other involved: USC
The Skinny: Green (6-6, 290 pounds) was injured throughout his senior year but that hasn't stopped the best programs in the country from shying away. He's rated as the fourth best offensive tackle in the nation, according to Rivals. He would be an excellent addition to any team's recruiting class. He has a big frame and long arms, according to the good folks over at Rivals. (I haven't had time to drive to Tampa and measure his arms.) Green still has a visit to USC and he's a big Kiffin fan.

5. Jordan Hicks, linebacker, West Chester, Ohio
Others involved: Texas, Ohio State
The Skinny: From everything I've read, Texas is the leader here. Apparently Hicks has a strong relationship with Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp. Still, there's an outside shot Florida could land this 6-2, 220 pound linebacker. Of course, didn't Florida sign a similar linebacker last year? Yep, Jelani Jenkins.

6. Christian Jones, linebacker, Winter Park Lake Howell
Other involved: Florida State
The Skinny: Christian Jones apparently visited Florida last weekend on his own dime, so that means he's pretty interested. This kid is a physical specimen (6-4, 220 pounds), and he apparently had a great time in Gainesville. He hit it off with UF's new defensive coordinator George Edwards. FSU remains the leader here, though. Jones' family ties to FSU are pretty strong. Of course, he might always pull a Matt Patchan.

7. Da'Rick Rogers, receiver, Calhoun, Ga.
Others involved: Georgia
The Skinny: Here's a wild card. Rogers is committed to Georgia but apparently his mother likes Florida coach Urban Meyer. Georgia's coaches have told him he'd be the next A.J. Green. Rogers is one of the best receivers in the nation and shining gem of Georgia's recruiting class. Gators fans would totally lose it if Rogers switched to Florida but I don't see it happening. Still, Rogers might visit Florida in the coming weeks.

If I had to pick the top four players on Urban's wish list, I'd go with McCartney, Rogers, Henderson and Jones. Never underestimate the importance of keeping talented players away from your rivals.

An embarrasment of riches. Go Urban Go. Although I think the recruits are recruiting the recruits. Houston, we have landed.

It's Great To Be a Florida Gator!

'Miami has apparently adopted a slightly different recruiting philosophy this year. I don't know what it is exactly, but it's noticeably different from years past."

That's a very polite way of saying they are getting the snot kicked out of them.

Wish List: McCartney, Coxson, Henderson, Hicks. We need another reciever and O Lineman for sure. If everyone else sticks then it's mission accomplished!


What I wish for and what happens are 2 different things. I think both Greens go to UF, James Louis and Eric Mack.

I like your wish list, but I don't see it happening.

We get Chaz Green, Coxson, Louis and Hicks

We miss on Henderson (OSU),The Christians (FSU) and McCartney (WV), Rogers stays at GA.

Just like fox(fake) news change the subject when there's bad news for the home team.
Sports Illustrated is in town doing research into lawlessness and the renegade program in gainesville.
So you won't be able to hide this last month, this last year or these last 4 years any longer.
Let the investigations begin...

To me it is shocking how quickly Urban Meyer's health concerns have been forgotten.

It could be that I am more aware of the risks involved because I am an alum of Northwestern. A few years ago we had a young, hard working well respected head coach named Randy Walker.

If Urban Meyer drops dead from the stress of the job he was unable to step back from because of pressure from the AD, the fans and the players (gotta get that last great recruit and have that top ranked recruiting class before you rest), who will be blamed?

And this guy brought you two National Championships?

Could Gator fans be characterized as a tad ungrateful? Maybe a little greedy? Incapable of a little perspective?

Rick,

You must not be able to read because every legal issue with the Gators has been reported, re-reported, discussed, rehashed ad naueseum for years. Even the really stupid crap like throwing a drink lid or a sandwich. Would you care to elaborate on exactly what is being hidden?

He made me and his father tint the windows in his bedroom because he was convinced the black helicopters were spying on him when he slept.

No one embraces the coaches (Meyer included) and the University more than Florida fans, especially the alumns. Urban Meyer wants some privacy to get things back together. The last thing he wants is an ongoing candle-light vigil outside his house. Coming from a Univ with a thimble-sized student body that can barely fill it's lilliputian stadium on game day (sound familiar canes?) that probably comes as a shock to you.

Go opine on your own blog about....whatever rich, white kids in Chicago bloviate about.

Never thought the 'Canes would stalk the Gators like a jilted lover when I did what I did.

It could be that I am more aware of the risks involved because I am an alum of Northwestern.

The fact that you went to Northwestern explains alot. You are probably the moron that started the jacory for heisman website and one of the 3500 season ticket holders for the candycanes. Does your opinion really matter here?


Right, Northwestern guy, like you guys don't go balls-out when you recruit for your chess team!

mack to auburn

Yeah, hearing Mack isn't coming to UF. Why in the world would James Louis de-commit from Ohio State and chose Florida after Florida ignored him for so long?

-jo-

Beginning to hear rumors that Chris Dunkley might de-commit and go to Alabama.

-jo-

He may be sick (A pedophile), but...

\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

Way to "take one" for the team NP!

He's all yours UF!

Go canes!

Where are you getting the dunkley info?
A few in the know people said your info is a laugher. I am willing to hear you out.

One name you didn't list -- Darrin Kitchens, LB from Homestead

I think he will sign if Christian Jones doesn't (Hicks isn't coming)

I am hearing positive info on about Hicks that is new. Hear if he doesn't EE to Texas on Friday we have a decent shot.

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/columns/story?columnist=forde_pat&id=4841759

The all decade rankings are in! Congrat's Gator Fan U made the list, BARELY!

Go 'canes!

^that list is questionable. the '08 FLA team had players of equal caliber on both sides as every team except the '01 miami and the '04 USC teams. '09 Bama should not be at 5. '08 FLA should definitely be above '04 AUB, '09 bama and '02 OSU in my humble opinion.

Apples,

UF coaches visiting Darrin Kitchens (6-3, 215 pounds) today, per Rivals.

-jo-

down on my block, huh

No Mack Brown, Demar Dorsey or Chris Dunkley, no problem.
.


Give me these 4, save 2 scholies for any decomits or walkons and call it a year.

mack brown and dunkley are UF
dorsey is 80%
prater reaffirmed to usc

the board looks like this:
1 WR from (Chr Green,Coxson,McCartney,J.Louis)
1 OL from (S.Henderson, Chz Green)
1 LB from (Hicks,Chr Jones,Kitchens)
Deering if Dorsey doesn't sign and we are not full. Most of the listed guys above are +1 types except for Louis,Kitchens,and Deering. Maybe not McCartney either due to grades.

Nice Sarasota chimes in with the '01 team...that's all he has...9 years ago we did this!! I am sure Randy will get Coach of the Decade in 10 years. BTW where you been Sarasota? Mom's basement needed a cleaning you vile dirtbag. Crying lately on canespace?

Vile dirtbag is right on the money. Envious , delusional, and SCUMBAG fit nicely also.

He's been busy in his (sex)bunker compiling a new list of ten absurd questions.
I'm sure his new list won't have any mention of recruiting. He's confident that the tentative coaching staff and Whiskey trampling will lock down another stellar class.

He's put of gas so now he just trots out the same prescription/crazy coach nonsense over and over.

It's easy to see how badly Urbans health issues affected this class right ?

I hate the U and I hate their fans. Dude I go on 5 different canes sites trashing them all day every day. I cant stand the sight of any thing UM. You should see some of the stuff I have posted the last couple of years. I am the reason their blog here is moderated now.

Sarasota dont have nothing on me. He might pop his head up here every once in A while but I dog him and his cane homers all day long.

What the heck is going on here?

-jo-

Typical 12 yr. old, I'm going to take my ball and go home Cane mentality.

Canes have definitely collapsed every year. Not Randys fault right?

Canes recruiting class is a joke but at least they stole a kid from Nevada State. Great job Randy.

Canes depth chart is still a mess. Coker right?

Canes coaching staff flip flops so much it should do endorsements for Ron Jon Surf Shop.

The QB depth chart dodged a bullet last year. That won't happen twice. Any prognosticator that talks about "all their talent" clearly hasn't taken a close look beyond J17's head art.

Just like UM football.

U are irrelevant. Nobody cares about U. Everyone laughs at U
.

Shannon is killing recruiting.

.

Northwestern coach Billy Rolle said UM's Randy Shannon never returned his call to address why UM stopped pursuing Chandler but said some schools are dissuaded by his height (6-0). ``I was UM's first commitment, and they stopped recruiting me and never explained why. It's a slap in the face,'' Chandler said last month. He's considering USF and others.

He and Hurt are too busy playing beer pong.

He and Hurt are too busy playing beer pong.

Plus do you know how long it takes Randy to groom that little hitler pencil thin mustache of his?

He pulled a Lane Kiffin the other saying he only recruits players that fit his system and they just happen to be 3 star recruits. Come on you really think people are going to believe that?


Posted by: The Curse of Art Kehoe | January 21, 2010 at 02:50 PM

CREEPY...

If U don't get help at Charter, please, get help somewhere!

Go 'canes!

Of course there is a "reasonable explanation" you flaming idiot. It's also the honest explanation. And that is, after seeing ALL the top Dade county talent look elsewhere, the little guys at UM gave up. It's called resignation in front of the facts. This recruiting cycle is clear evidence that Randy has no business being an HC at a "top program." Seriously. He is getting his asss handed to him.

.

Schultz has to been Waaaahndys neighbor or lawn guy or brother or SOMETHING. He's the only guy left that is still on Waaaahndys nutsak. He's still obsessed with convincing everyone that because Waaahndy was a part of former great teams that he is presently qualified to be a D-1 head coach.

This recruiting class is a real stinker no matter how you slice it. Yet schultz ignores everything, offers up daily nonsensical spin, makes absurd analogies daily, and paints everything as rosey.

Your analogies alone show what a completely in-denial troglodyte you are.

Long after Randy is fired you will still be apologizing for him and trying to convince everyone about how fit he was for UM.

He's not.

.

When Shannon finally gets fired there will hordes of people running down the street just like last week in Knoxville.


They will be celebrating wildly.

Shortbterm?? Who said anything about the "shortbterm"? But if the Shortbterm is your thang, it's worth noting that UF has landed the undisputed TOP class in the nation. After getting a commitment from the UA All Star Game MVP Michael Taylor this weekend there are three slots remaining to join the big boys. Another stud is sure to jump aboard.

Meanwhile Randy Shanannigans is wallowing in mediocrity landing the guys nobody wants. The massive decommit train that pulled out of Coral Gables combined with the QB depth chart defections leave the overrated recruiter in a very tight spot. Egos aside, the recruits are smart today. They see what is going on at Transfer U and are steering clear. Just ask Manny. You know Manny, the guy U vilified for reporting to you what all the recruits told him. Looks like Manny the Villain had a crystal ball as the overwhelming majority of kids in talent rich Dade looked elsewhere.

Randy is getting exposed badly.

President Gargoyle and Kirby Coldcutt should give Marble Mouf a lifetime contract. There is one thing worse than being bad. It is no one cares that u are bad. u should know. Look at the attendance figures from your rented stadium. u are irrelevant! u are pathetic! Everyone laughs at u!.

LmAo @ "President Gargoyle"

she is screwing U in immeasurable ways.

Coldcut can't wait to axe Marbles and bring in his own low pay guy. Randys extension will be largely insulting but it will reflect his abilities.

I like the look of this Kehoes loin.

Doesn't this cAne troll usually wait till Friday to lose his mind? Must be the recruiting class stress. Or the recruiting class embarrassment I should say. Who cares this stuff is hilarious. Thank you cane troll.

Does Shay Shay trim the carpet?

I'm pretty he's a Gator Troll, and it seems his meds have run out again!

I love how Kehoe "lmao" at a post he created 1 minute earlier! Classic!

He's all your's UF!

Go 'canes!

you guys are a trip

anyway, getting back to recruiting, it looks like the Gators aren't out of it yet for Hicks

Good evening LIZARDS, I see one of your former playas was just arrested for trying to kill his girl...AND now you have your long time sideline reporter busted for looking at pictures of little boys...
looks like Urbie is still running a tight ship ...heh ?

Gator joke of the day.....

Q. -Why did the Florida linebacker steal a police car?
A. -He saw 911 on the side and thought it was a Porsche.

ill keep it simple:

"The ENTIRE Big10 has 12 of the top 150 football recruits. The ENTIRE ACC has 14 in the top 150. Florida beats both conferences all by itself with 16. BigEast has 1. And if you take out Texas(13) and USC(8), the Pac10 and Big12 combined have 23 The rest of the SEC has 36 of the top 150. Does anybody wonder why the SEC is so dominant? GO GATORS!"

Excellent post, AMER GATOR. The SEC is running away with college football.

-jo-

Just like ALABAMA is running away from FLORIDUH.

TIM TEBOW WANTS YOU TO HAVE THAT CHILD, DAMMIT!: (Whether you want to or not!) Granted, the law indicates pregnant women may choose for themselves regarding their bodies and whether to have a legal abortion. But Tebow and his mother, Pam, have teamed with conservative group Focus On The Family for a pro-life/anti-choice ad that will air during the Super Bowl. What's interesting is CBS-TV has a policy prohibiting "advocacy ads" that take sides in fractious political issues such as this. Since CBS is allowing an anti-abortion ad, would it also allow, say, an anti-gay marriage ad during the Super Bowl? (Focus On The Family is anti-gay marriage, too, unless that went without saying). I have no problem with pro-lifers (except of course their extreme, lunatic fringe who scream "Murder!" and think killing doctors who perform abortions is justifiable). I sometimes wish pro-lifers had that same tolerance for the other side, but that's another story. But I also believe religion and this choice are personal, private things. CBS is wrong to violate its own policy by airing an advocacy ad on this topic. CBS would be wrong if it were airing a pro-life ad, too. The network is star-struck by Tebow or mesmerized by the $2.8 million being paid for the 30-second spot. The ad will be jarring, especially in the context of all the funny, talking-donkey ads. Also the ad will upset more people than it pleases, if we are to believe opinion polls on this issue. There is a place for rigorous political debate, but during the Super Bowl? It'd be like you throwing a big Super Bowl party and one of your guests shows up on a bullhorn railing against the evils of drinking. Out of place, man! Call this a mistake by CBS. And the first fumble of Tebow's professional career.

Greg Cote Miami Herald

losing to the national champion doesn't sting nearly as much as getting TROUNCED by a fat butter eating midwest pansy.

UF v Alabama 1-1

We get them Oct 2, 2010.

It's where big boys meet.

LOL -- of course it stings, but that's how it goes when you've got NC's in your conference. ACC -- not so much. stupid canes.

...with the exception of basketball.

CTL -- recoiling and taking offense makes this a bigger issue than it really is. Most people already have an opinion on this so doubtful an ad is going to change anyone's mind. An indifferent response to this ad would make this story go away quicker than guys like you fussing and hollering about it.

Don't flatter yourself and think you're arguing something that hasn't been argued by people way smarter and better informed -- ad nauseum. Give it a rest. A few days after the Super Bowl everyone will forget about it and we'll move on with our lives.

***Urban Meyer will resign after signin day*** Its going tofunny when Meyer resigns after signing day and all these recruits will have not coach. He only stayed because he was told you would lose recruits if he didn't.
This is the typical sleazy way Florida does everything. It is unfair to these players and their families.

Is this what 'cane-dom has been reduced to?

***Urban Meyer will resign after signing day***

The plan was to stay until after signing day and try to keep recruits. Typical Gators

Gators are already losing recruits as mentioned in other blogs and will lose more. They have figured out the scheme.

Again -- is this what 'cane-dom has been reduced to? Chronicling the comings and goings of other teams?

Funny you should say that "Funny". Why do gaytor fans feel the need to come on cane boards 24-7 flapping their gums about the state of our football team. I said this in the past and I will say it again. The last few years was the greatest run in UFs history and instead of enjoying it all some gaytor fans could think of was bashing another team. Well guess what, your run is over. New O coach, new D coach, new QB, and more than likely A new head coach. 9 - 4 if your lucky and BAMA will drill you worse next year. yea gaytor fan it can get worse, alot worse.

You gotta love Miami fans. What a bunch of morons. Florida is loaded and this recruiting class will load for the next 3/4 years. Meyer is one of the best coaches in college football. You think we are in trouble?

Miami just finished 9-4 with two one point mickey mouse wins. You should have been 7-6.
Randy Shannon can't call time outs. You get 10,000 people at home games. Your recruiting class consists of 3 star players. You gotta be pretty stupid to think Florida is the team in trouble. You can't even win a basketball conference.

Miami fans have no credibility. I haven't met dumber fans ever.

Posted by: Donna Shalala | January 22, 2010 at 11:34 AM
Havent met dumber fans? You look in the mirror every day tard. Were you saying the same thing about the gaytors A few years ago when they went 9-4 with A sophmore QB and lost to Michigan in the bowl game. I seriously doubt it.

We don't need fans in the Sun Life Insurance Bowl when we got SWAGGER. We invented it if you havent heard...We only take recruits with SWAGGER and if they are 1 star, 2 stars, or 3 stars so be it. SWAGGER wins games, not 4-5 star recruits, not game plans, not 2nd half adjustments, not strenghth and conditioning coaches - just pure unadulterated SWAGGER and we'll kick um to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger

Go canes!

And you can bid your coach farewell. He saved the recruiting class now he will get the counceling he desperatly needs.

5 > 3 ships

26 > 25 HTH

No you dont. But hey those 5*s, sold out stadiums and pretty facilities sure look good.

But wait cane tard, I thought Urban was a lock for Notre Dame???

Congrats on getting your third and finally passing the former girls school up north. Now if you could only catch the little private school down south. The flagship university in the state of Florida? Not so much.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just the messenger......Got this interesting e-mail; what do ya think????

Why Urban returned

Below is some very interesting information. The guy passing on the information is the most respected of posters and has some inside connections with the team. He always caveats his "opinion". This is not his opinion. This info comes from someone very close to the situation who felt the truth needed to be spoken.
The post is long but basically it outlines that Meyer was offered a Leave of Absence by Foley but decided to step down before the Sugar Bowl because he wanted Charlie Strong to take the HC position before he went to Louisville (that had not been finalized yet). Almost immediately after Meyer announced his "retirement" Stoopes called Foley and was all but set to replace Meyer. It was to be announced within days. When Meyer found this out, he decided to about face and take the offered LOA. Meyer did not want his staff let go, his program rebuilt by Stoopes and basically be done at Florida . People think of Meyer as Foley's guy. He was actually brought in by Machen. Foley has benefited from Meyer's success but Urban and Jeremy are not as tight as people think.

Amazing how much goes on behind the scenes and we never know about it.


#############################################

On the main board a first time poster by the name of G8r Girl posted the following: (note "girl")
"The Real Truth About Urban Meyer
I have been a member of Rivals / Gatorbait for about three years and, while I am an avid reader of both the Alley and the main board, I have never once posted so no one here knows me, including the Gators. I am not going to tell you how I know any of this nor will I post again here on this subject. Flame away if you must or take it for what it is worth…it is your prerogative.
With his health scare, Urban Meyer had a wake-up call. He realized he had been, for several years, giving everything he had to his team to the detriment of his health and his family. He felt it was a message from God that he had lost track of his priorities and, being emphatically decisive he felt he had to make a choice between his long-term health / family and his job. He chose his family.
Meanwhile, Bernie Machen, president of the University of Florida , Jeremy Foley and Shelley Meyer wanted Meyer to take time off to get healthy, decompress, spend time with his family and recharge his batteries. Meyer has essentially earned “tenure” at UF and was encouraged to take a sabbatical. Despite their collective and repeated efforts over several days, Meyer remained committed to his own decision to step down because he is a type-A, all-in perfectionist. He felt that if he could not do the job right now, he should step away in the interests of his team and the university…and he had a plan.
Why the timing on the resignation?
Why couldn’t Meyer wait until after the Sugar Bowl---or for that matter NSD for all you conspiracy theorists---to make this announcement? Why all the urgency? Why create more distraction for his beloved team before their final game?
Because Meyer's plan was that Charlie Strong would get promoted to HC and after some time off, Meyer would come back to UF and help Strong out at arm's length, staying involved, though less directly, in the powerhouse program he built. For his plan to work, he had to resign immediately, before Strong signed a contract with Louisville . He could not wait until after the bowl game.
Why the sudden change of heart?
Practically the instant that the Meyer resignation hit the wires, Bob Stoops contacted Foley. He wanted the HC job at Florida . Though we (Gators) all LOVE Strong, Foley would not and could not promote Strong to HC with the likes of Stoops in the candidate pool. Meyer knew that if Stoops took the job, he would not be able to stay involved in the program in any capacity. Strong would go to Louisville and all of Meyer's assistants would be out of a job. His players, who he truly loves, would have to weather a complete change in coaching staff and philosophy. In one week, he would lose all connection to the program he has given everything to building for five years.
In short, Meyer felt he would be letting everyone down---his players, his assistant coaches, his wife (who never wanted him to resign) and himself. Meyer realized that if he didn't take the LOA option, he would lose his team and program altogether. Placing faith in God and in his wife’s, Machen’s and Foley’s assertions that all he really needs is some time off, he changed his mind.
Meyer said that he changed his mind when he saw the team and coaches practicing hard; when he looked at the championship signs around the stadium and reflected on the program he built at Florida . Those statements are true. He also said, in a later interview, "I didn't want anything to change. I didn't want anyone to come in here and change what we built…"
Bob Stoops, absolutely without intention, accomplished in mere moments what Machen, Foley and Shelley Meyer were unable to accomplish in several days---getting Urban Meyer to rethink his course of action and decide to take some well-earned time off after NSD and regroup.
While it is certainly possible that he could decide in the future not to return to coaching at Florida , (which incidentally would not make him a liar as we are all entitled to change our minds) I firmly believe---and this is my opinion---that he will be on the Florida sidelines next season and for many years to come. It will be hard work for him to learn to delegate sufficiently, but he will learn to strike a better balance in his life with the support of the Meyer family and his UF family. I think he is touched by the level of loyalty and support being shown him by the UF administration, his players, his recruits and Florida alumni and fans, and he will return to his job later this year refreshed, grateful and with a renewed outlook.
As any fair-minded person who has had major personal and/or professional decisions to make can attest, cross roads in life are very challenging. They are made even more difficult for people whose lives are publicly scrutinized. What we all witnessed was exactly this and nothing more. Meyer made a difficult personal decision and when the facts changed, he made a different decision. The only reason it seems strange to anyone is because you don’t know all of facts. You merely assume that you do and pass judgment rather than give someone who is highly accomplished the benefit of the doubt. If Urban Meyer, his family, the university and his team are all comfortable with his decisions, that is all that matters.
It would be nice if those of us who have faced somewhat similar challenges in balancing our family and work lives reflected on this ourselves. For those of you who are still too young to have experienced these types of challenges, your day will come. Here is hoping that you find yourself surrounded by people who care about you and are loyal to you like Urban Meyer has.
In parting, while I literally laugh out loud at some of the flame wars on this board, it would be really great if, for one day, we could all act like we are friends in a sports bar together drinking a beer and complimenting the positive attributes about each other’s teams and coaches instead of trying to tear each other down. While there is 0% chance that this will happen, I will nevertheless give a shout out to the FSU fans. Congratulations on a phenomenal career, Bobby Bowden! Well Done! I wish you luck, Noles, with your new coaching staff and recruiting class and look forward to many years of competitive games for our great rivalry! Cheers!"

But here in 2009 U REALLY SUK. Have for a long time too. And it will continue U dumb BROKE idiot.

U better contact FEMA for a QB emergency plan.

***Urban Meyer will resign after signing day***

This is for all Gator fans:
1. The truth is the truth
2. History is the proof
3. You always pad their early schedule
with powder puffs to keep a high ranking.
4. You barely win close games
5. You refuse to schedule Miami and the last 2
times you did play you refused to play them at home. The record is the proof.
6. Gator fans go on the Hurricanes blogs all the time and talk garbage.
7.There are many, many more things that could be said.

***Urban Meyer will resign after signing day***

I'm still scratching my head on this one...I don't know why these guys feel compelled to talk so much smack after accomplishing nothing of late.

This is where they're at, I guess...

At least the "you-guys-do-it-to-us-so-we'll-do-it-to-you" argument hovers at the 5th grade level. The rest of it...just infantile.

Yeah, and Urban will head right over to Notre dame too....right cane fan?

Go cry in your envious milk you delusional clown.

Hey cane clowns who did Miami play that was so good last year?
Always talking about SOS but who did you play? 6 loss sooner team? 6 loss fsu team? who?

People that play in a basketball conference can't throw stones. When you play in a real conference where there are actual contenders for national championships talk all you want. But until than, keep counting all the empty seats at your home games.Losers

They didn't play anybody!

Gt?great Orange Bowl chumps. Overrated ACC teams get flattened by cornfed teams.
