Asa Florida fan, the shock of last year's "retirement" was huge. I am kinda shrugging it off this time. Didn't seem like he was really into it this year.

And an Florida fan that hates Meyer is beyond stupid.

Wow. Of the two head coaches in this year's Gator Bowl, Urban Meyer wasn't the one I'd have expected to be heading into retirement after the game.

Am I the only one who isn't raising an eyebrow that he steps down the day after the Broncos fired Josh McDaniels? Perhaps, just perhaps he goes to Denver and rekindles his man love for Tim Tebow. Is man love the right word? I almost went with Bromance.

Ok, it probably has a slim to none chance of happening, but the timing is curious.

The Broncos did note that their next head coach wouldn't oversee personnel like McDaniels did, so maybe it'll be a combination of Meyer/some GM he's friendly with. But I doubt it, since you'd think Denver would want a proven NFL coach after striking out with an unproven guy already

You know, I can't shake the feeling there's some dark clouds on the horizon Meyer has the foresight to dodge, maybe having to do with Cam Newton, kind of like Pete Carroll when he left USC. I sincerely hope not, I want to like Urban Meyer.

No way he goes to Denver. Word is out throughout the NFL that hiring guys who were good in the college game is high risk/little reward. The day Urban Meyer coaches in the NFL, I'll eat my hat.

NOTE: I don't own a hat.

Nah honestly I believe he didn't want to come back this year and only did so because the timing of his first retirement was a disaster for Florida. They were going to lose one of their best recruiting classes ever and had no good replacement for him. Sucks for all those kids that he told he would stick around, but I think he knew this was a one year thing.

FTFY. The Gator Bowl is where a coach is expected to be heading into unemployment after the game... hopefully.

I don't think he is going to renew the greatest QB/coach bromance of all time in Denver. I think he wanted to get out last year and he was talked back into it by the Florida family. Which makes me wonder how hard he went into this season. There have been reports from coaches and players he was very laid back this year. Perhaps after losing Teabow and the rest of the core of his national championship run, his heart wasn't into it. I know I would try to get out of any team that has Bentley as my QB. The question is who is going to replace him?

Oops, thanks. Should get the name of the bowl game right if I'm considering dropping that much money and travel on the off-chance the rumblings of it "really (no like, for real, really, this time)" being Joe's Last Game are true.

This is where an up-and-coming coach like Jim Harbaugh or Pat Fitzgerald could really get the rub, retiring a former champion like Urban Meyer. But of course those damned bookers for the Bowl Cartel feed him to JoePA, who is as over as he's ever going to get.

I'm surprised by the Muschamp hire. Seems like a really good one, but the defense wasn't really the problem. Have to wait and see who he gets as OC.

Really confused by the Miami hire of Golden. He may be good, maybe not. Certainly not going to excite recruits right away.

I don't know a single fan that dislikes Meyer or this decision.

I love the Muschamp hire. Let's be honest, the reason the SEC is good so often is defense and that completely disappeared this season as Auburn, largely a one man offense, dropped 40 and 50 points regularly. A dominant defense in the SEC is a National Championship contender. Hell, Florida's offense wasn't that good last year when they went 13 - 1.

Also, we're talking about a coach that knows LSU, Auburn and Saban, which figure to be Florida's biggest obstacles. There is also the possibility that Muschamp could steal Alabama's d-line coach Bo Davis because they were good friends under Saban at LSU. This hiring is clearly directed towards the Alabama-Florida rivalry.

Eh, the major message boards I'm around had lots of Gator fans pissed at Meyer for coming back only to half ass it this season then quit again. And word is it really ticked off the freshman on that team who feel they were lied to.

I do think Muschamp is a great hire, but that offense was horrid. No defense could make up for how bad they were, with all the turnovers and sloppy play.
