    Confirmed by ESPN sources and Meyer´s agent.

    Think a high hiring of this magnitude deserves its own thread.

    Is Meyer going to retain the current staff or bring in his own crew.

    This makes no sense. He was going to Ft. Fun. What happened?

    Anyone else notice espin and espin2 on Thurs or Fri night?


    espin's runner was claiming that Meyer and blowhio state had reached an agreement for x years at $xx mil.


    espin2's runner was saying that Meyer had denied rumors that he had spoken to blowhio state officials.



    Way to go, Bristol.

    The person who got screwed here was really Fickell. But, since it is Ohio State, they expect to have a big name and win.

    I was wondering that, too. He did not perform well as the head coach.

    I thought for the situation he was placed in he performed better than expected. Maybe a personal belief, but you have a program ravaged of a starting QB and coach. Seems like 6 wins with an even record in a building year is performing, but I have different expectations than OSU.

    Could be, but unless he peformed so well that they just had to keep him (10 wins, BCS, etc.), I don't think he was ever really viewed as anything more than an emergency stop gap by the people there. Some have said he may be retained as DC, but I kind of doubt it.

    What rebuilding year? That place is loaded with athletes. I don't think he had any illusions as to what his role would be.

    I think Meyer is a very good coach, but the pressure was affecting his health and the Gator team. I wonder how long he'll last this time around. Despite the fact that it's the SEC, the pressure in Gainesville seems relatively subdued compared to what he'll experience in Colombus.

    Agreed. I think Meyer will be a victim of his own success. The expectations will be for him to come in from year one and compete for national championships. Now, he'll have a loaded team, but if they don't reach the level that he did with Florida, he'll be considered a massive disappointment; and for a guy with health issues, that cannot be good.

    I hope they get that failure to monitor charge. That would be great. However, Im sure the NCAA wont do a ****ing thing about it. They would give CU the death penalty.

    wait I thought Meyer had "health" problems so he had to retire? I guess those "health" problems were Nick Saban and Les Miles.

    There was alot of pressure on him at Florida, and there will be alot of pressure on him at OSU. He's a workaholic, and his health will never last in the long run. I do think he will be successful, as long as his health is good.
