The SEC lost one of their most historical coaches an evening Saturday night. Coach Urban Meyer decided to stay at the University of Florida after "a change of heart." We all witnessed a press conference yesterday only to know zero information on why Coach Meyer left the game of college football for one evening, before returning. He was very secretive about his health situation and now it has turned into this health-related debacle. Paul Finebaum was just on ESPN telling what needs to be addressed, about a situation that was never addressed. Finebaum hit it on the head when he told ESPN about this debacle turning into pararells of a Tiger Woods situation. There are also some reports from the Florida that Coach Meyer's situation maybe in line of a family incident and/or problem. The one thing that sticks out in yesterday's press conference, is that Coach Meyer would not discuss any health related topics in great detail when this is all about his health that caused him to quit his profession for a day. As we have came to learn in the world of sports, health-related problems brings families, friends, and fan bases together. Why shy away from health-related matters when it is so severe that an individual like Urban Meyer would not come clean and tell all the fans that care about him? Look at Jimmy V, Magic Johnson, Lance Armstrong, etc. who all handled health-related matters to a perfect example. We do know, and was asked yesterday, Urban Meyer flew to California after the SEC Championship game. As Meyer stated, "It is a recruiting dead period", then would not answer why he flew to California (when he should not be since he is in bad health?) Multiple sources are aware that Urban flew to California during the same time his ex-team (Utah) and his ex-assistant (Kyle Whittingham) played in the Poinsettia Bowl against California (played in San Diego.) It has been known that he wanted Coach Whittingham to replace him at the University of Florida and he would take a prominent role with Florida. It was a great plan until the offer was turned down by his ex-assistant. Paul Finebaum knew a lot of the information that has been un-mentioned in this ordeal gone bad. ESPN tried underestimating his comments this afternoon, but the truth has been untold by Meyer and the University of Florida. We all hope Coach Meyer is in great health, but when you are a public figure, why go a secretive route when health-related problems can only bring people together (especially when you have a great spokesman in Tim Tebow still in your back pocket?) Urban Meyer needs to come clean and address the situation he caused and tell the details that were caused on him (how severe the health illness is and will be.) Paul Finebaum, I am sure will un-glue the distractions and the un-told information, in which what is really going on with Coach Urban Meyer. We all do hope Meyer will be okay regarding his health and his family.
