As all the Urban Meyer speculation came down today, I couldn't help but actually worry about his physical health. To step down from a job as good as Florida, he had to have realized that his health wasn't great. When it comes to problems with the heart, things really don't change that much in a year. I'm no expert, but having watched my Father work for years to improve his heart health, I have seen the work it takes.
The stress the SEC can put on a coach is terrible, that's a certainty. While tsio is not in the SEC, their fan base is equally as demanding, and a great deal more vicious in dealing with a loss. The pressure on him will be the same as it was in Florida, and the added pressure of the sanctions certainly will weigh heavily on him. While it certainly appears that he will eventually take the job, one has to wonder if it's the right decision for him. As a football fan who respects his body of work, I would like to see him take more time off to get his heart right. That has absolutely nothing to do with my fear as a Michigan fan, for him taking the job at tsio. Truth be told, I don't think it would be the match made in heaven most buckeye fans anticipate it being. That being said, I think it would be a disaster, and the toll it would take on Urban wouldn't be worth anything they could offer him.
Don't do it, Urban, it's not worth it.
