Did you know Florida Gators players smoke more weed than the average person does? If not, you were mortified by the Sporting News' expose of Urban Meyer's final months in Gainesville. If so ... well, portions of the story are still mighty concerning.
We learn Percy Harvin once attacked his position coach and Bret Bielema's recruiting concerns went well beyond Meyer picking off Wisconsin's commits, but otherwise it's not quite as surprising as the UCLA basketball story it's been compared to, perhaps because Florida doesn't really have a John Wooden character anyway. Your program isn't supposed to act like every other program if it has a John Wooden character.
The air of entitlement among players is something concerning, and one that has to worry Ohio State fans at least a little. It also makes one wonder how long ago it was that Meyer checked out amid his health problems or whatever. Pat Dooley adds to the "coddling" narrative, describing Harvin as the most babied player in the program's history.
It does shine a light on what Will Muschamp's going through in trying to right the ship (SI.com's Andy Staples takes a close look at Muschamp's revamped coaching staff). His players have been arrested about a dozen times since he took over, but he's not the one who recruited them in the first place. Meyer told Muschamp the program was "broken," and we'll know to take him at his word on that sort of thing henceforth.
The Florida fan's reaction to this and just about all other Meyer critiques seems to be to point at some national titles. Ohio State fans, likewise, aren't all that worried.
