Here at bourbonmeyer.com, we are at a crossroads of our sites existence. When the venerable Urban Meyer left the University of Florida twice in the last few years, we were shocked but determined to carry on our tradition of imbibing in sweet tea and bourbon on game days. We threw around names like SwillMuschamp and Will MusCHOMP but ultimately we knew we were sticking with the man who delivered us 2 National Championships and 1 Tebow. Yeah, he dumped us, but it was for his wife and kids, so we don’t hold it against him.
These days rumors are swirling that he is leaving us for someone else.We all thought he turned down his dream job at Notre Dame to join us five years ago. What if his dream job is actually Ohio State? Urban was born in Ohio, played his college ball in Ohio, got his first coaching job and first head coaching job in Ohio. He is an Ohio boy. I think this time he is gone. I honestly believe the conspiracy theories that he only came back in 2010 so that the Gators would have time to find a suitable replacement and now I believe the conspiracy theory that the Buckeyes are keeping interim coach Luke Fickell around just long enough to give Meyer the family time he needed so they can swoop him away in 2012 or 2013.
So now I am getting a head start on the bandwagon jump to THE Ohio State University. First thing I am going to do is google why that “THE” is in the school name. Then I am going to start covering the men’s golf national championship where Ohio State currently sits tied for 5th place, nine spots ahead of the Gators. The women’s rowing team finished 10th in the nation this past weekend. The Gators were nowhere to be found in that competition. I am no longer interested in the Women’s Lacrosse team that made the elite eight in its second year of existence, or the Men’s Baseball team that just won the SEC tournament, or the Women’s Softball team that is a 4 seed in Oklahoma City at the Softball World Series. Let’s dot the I in Ohio and Hang on to Sloopy as we get ready for the rise of Urban Meyer.
What do the bourbonmeyer.com readers think? Will we cover the spread against Akron with Joe Bauserman at QB? How bad of luck does Greg Oden have? If it weren’t for his freak injuries, he would be the best basketball player in the NBA. Isn’t it obvious that Donald Trump hates black people so he didn’t choose OSU class of 1993 graduate Lil Jon to be the new Apprentice?
Gators/Buckeyes, use the comments section below to make your case for which school I should be writing about for the upcoming seasons.
