EDSBS's Reflection On Meyer's Resignation May Be Best Yet

Florida coach Urban Meyer's health is in question, as is his long-term future as a coach, but there is no question about his commitment. He's an enormous talent, and throughout his career, he's made sure that every ounce of this talent was combined with tireless effort to construct one of the greatest coaching careers in the history of college football. Over at Every Day Should Be Saturday, our own Spencer Hall ponders this truth, among others. Predictably enough, EDSBS has produced what is arguably the most eloquent take on Meyer in the wake of his resignation.

When we begin the new, and go through whatever comes next–the screaming, the ambiguity, the anxiety of whatever the next coach, the next team, and the next season will bring and the medications we will have to inject directly into our eyeballs to cope–we’ll forget how hard this had to be for a guy who torched himself in the fire of his own ambitions, but who stopped short of complete self-immolation when his body balked at last.
