Before I get to the classy part, this is the first thing that popped into my head, and if you're an Alabama fan, I'm sure you thought the same thing.
Urban finally lost a big game, and couldn't handle it.
Trust me, I understand that he needed to spend more time with his family, etc, but there's something very fishy with this story. Something's just not right. A 45 year old man doesn't resign to spend more time with his family. Especially one that's as successful as Coach Meyer.
WKMG in Orlando is reporting that Coach Meyer had a heart attack in the middle of the year, and was admitted to the hospital in Gainesville again after the SEC Championship game for chest pains. The school released that he was treated for dehydration, but there were rumblings from everywhere that it was much more serious than that.
He was as good a coach as anyone could ever imagine, and I would hope that he'll get everything situated and return to coaching soon. He's a fierce competitor and I enjoyed being able to play against his teams the last two seasons in the championship game, and I was especially looking forward to seeing him back in Bryant Denny Stadium next year. Only 5 years in, he became a victim of the monster. If he couldn't handle the pressure at Florida, just imagine how bad it would have been at Notre Dame.
