    This is one of the biggest stories circulating online right now. It's in my face every day. I can't resist it any longer. The world must know!

    I’d be all over the Jax job if it was an opportunity. Getting the #1 pick and Lawrence, stud RB. Free agent some D and WR’s and work on the OL and you can be competitive in a few years.

    if i were urban i would stay in college. it is what he knows and it sure seems like you are the big dog on campus. plus, you wouldnt have to deal with pro athletes and their egos.

    You know, I've been up all night worrying and thinking about this Urban Meyer thing, and I just wonder how a transition like this would go. In college, Urban was a no-nonsense, strict, hard driving, relentless, coach who was insanely obsessed with winning. He's the kind of coach that DEMANDED the best from his players. I watched him on the sidelines for years on Saturdays, and he really poured his heart and soul into the game. He put everything he had into it. He has a brilliant football mind, and I just wonder if he could succeed in the NFL. I've seen other brilliant college coaches fall flat on their face in the pros, and I just wonder?

    The guy retired twice, is no spring chicken and has a cushy job and more money than his generations can spend. Unless there’s a fire in his belly I’d say no way.
    Then who’s to say after 18 months he decided nah, retires a 3rd time. Owners need to think long and hard about hiring him.

    Urban can't handle losing. It's a problem for him. A 5-11 NFL season would put him in the grave. Heck even an 11-5 season might do the same

    I can remember him flat on his back motionless after the 2016 Michigan-Ohio State 2 OT game. And they won!

    Absolutely true. He's already had health problems from the stress of it, and he can't stand to lose. That's also one of the reasons he was such a great coach, he just absolutely hates losing, and demands that everyone give maximum effort. He's borderline insane. If I were playing college football, I'd want to play for him.

    I must admit/confess, Urban Meyer fascinates me. If you study him and listen to him talk about football, he's brilliant.

    Yes he is a ticking time bomb, and if I were him, for the sake of my health, I would just stay away from the NFL.

    I remember how upset he was after Michigan beat Florida in the 2007 Capital One Bowl. The Gators were heavily favored with Tebow/ Pouncey/ Harvins etc. Michigan lost to App State that year. I honesty thought Meyers was going to have a heart attack in the 4th quarter.

    FYI a little trivia. Cam Newton was a freshman on that Florida team.

    It's too much for him to handle, and it shows on the sidelines. I had forgotten Cam Newton was with Florida before he went on to Auburn. And then of course he came to the Panthers and made my life miserable! But yes, Urban can't handle it anymore, and he has has stress problems on the sidelines before.

    Re: your tag line

    DoubleD I was born and raised in Detroit. I don't need to tell you how much Joe Louis meant to us. He is the heart and soul of the city. When I still lived in Michigan everyone who visited wanted to see " The Fist". It never gets old. I was also reminded of Joe every time I took my seats at Red Wing games at The Joe.

    Ah yes, the fist. I love that . It is true, I have become a hardcore Joe Louis addict. He just fascinates me, he was heavyweight champion for over 11 years, from 1937-49, that kind of dominance is just ridiculous. It's funny you should mention him, because in the next few days, I'm gong to be purchasing a rare Joe Louis card that is going to cost over $350.00
    My wife is going to flip out, but I don't care. She just doesn't understand what Joe Louis means to me! 😂😂

    Do the right thing and hide it from her.

    BTW that 2007 Florida team also had Brandon Spikes, Carlos Dunlap, Joe effing Haden and Aaron Hernandez.

    No way Urban in the NFL does anyone good unless you bet against - college kids not making millions can be manageable, primadonna millionaires can crack your brain with some BS if you're trying to be a leader.

    Meyer's health issues weren't really stress-related. He had an enlarged congenital arachnoid cyst on his brain. Stress doesn't cause those those cysts to create headaches or the like - but poor eating or lack of sleep from stress can.

    Some people are thinking that Urban Meyer is interested in going to the NFL because he likes the thought of rebuilding teams. He likes it.

    I was so pissed when Marrone walked away from the Bills. I never understood why but 3-4 years later I’m so glad he did. Did he ever state the reason?

    Meyer goes nowhere.

    1 - He's good as an analyst, and appears to enjoy the role.
    2 - He has health issues related to stress. Why would he go into the lion's den and absorb the abuse of the NFL pressure?
    3 - He has been bestowed the title of "Assistant Athletic Director", which is a made up title where Meyer can just kinda float around and look important. which pays him $100k per year and all the perks he can grab. He gets to ride the train, toot the whistle and watch all the games from luxurious suites.

    I'm thinking maybe Urban Meyer is wanting to coach in the NFL because he just has to know if he can succeed at the highest level of the game. This is just a theory. Nothing more. Nothing less. Just a theory. It doesn't mean I'm right!

    Rumor has it he’s been assembling his staff for the last few weeks for Jacksonville. But don’t get too excited. He did the same for USC and then didn’t take the job.

    I think it is crazy for him to do this. The only reason I can see is maybe because the Jags have the number 1 pick and he'll get Lawrence and try to rebuild. I think he just has to know if he can succeed at the highest level. I just worry for his health, the NFL is going to be stressful.

    He is used to winning teams. Always having superior talent. Being mediocre, taking the field as a big underdog may cause even worse headaches. At least he can afford a large supply of Aleve.

    It’s the perfect fit for him. He has a home in Jacksonville. He’s a Florida legend. The media will go easy on him. He gets Trevor Lawrence and $70M in cap space and a tone of draft choices. Plus he knows every college player for the next 3 years. Remind you of Jimmy Johnson in Dallas?
    Not only that he only has one real QB to deal with in his division. The man is a genius.
