How sad is it that there is no sadness?

Translating that coachspeak, that means Meyer will take some time away from coaching, Ohio State is in great hands with Ryan Day taking over as the head coach, and in a year or two, if his health is improved, he'd return to coaching.

There were no heavy hearts; only cocked eyebrows. To assume Meyer's retirement counts the Buckeyes out in the near term is simplistic and premature; this is a team that's been a juggernaut under any number of coaches. Meyer was ideal in seven tries against MI - he is retiring with more career wins over Ohio State than Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh - and even when the world thought Ohio State was.

"I believe I won't coach again", Meyer said Tuesday. I wish him nothing but the best and everlasting success.

And neither does anybody else - including Meyer himself. "In this racket, it's best when you go out by your own choice".

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer is explaining his reasoning to retire after the Rose Bowl on January 1. And, now, suddenly, he's retiring for good?

Haven't we seen this movie before?

"It has been an honor to represent for the last seven years this football program, my home state of OH, this university and community that I care so deeply about", Meyer said. This time seems infinitely more permanent. Murphy noticed that Day was able to adjust his playcalling, rather than asking players to adjust to him, which is part of what has made him successful at Ohio State.

The university will announce his retirement at a 2 p.m. ET news conference. Youngblood had considered Meyer a close friend - until he felt Meyer lied to him. "When it turns out to not be the truth, that doesn't [put him] very high on my Christmas-card list". Urban Meyer, Illinois coach.

"I've learned so much from you on a daily basis and will forever be in debt to you", Day said to Meyer during the press conference. In other words - with the way he compromised ethics and integrity at Florida in the name of winning - the truth literally became a punchline.

Smith was a sophomore football player at Notre Dame when Ara Parseghian left coaching at the age of 51 and never returned. The university cited that lapse in suspending Meyer after an investigation.

"I'm sure it will", he said. His "retirement" announcement is really just the culmination of a months-long temper tantrum.

"Brown added: "(Meyer) told me that he couldn't be animated at the level he needed to to energize the team and stay healthy". "I tried to delegate more and CEO more and the product started to feel.", he said, not finishing his thought. However, you can not deny his greatness.

Meyer was 81-9 with a national championship at Ohio State after six years at Florida, where he won two national titles. He was also the first to post three 13-win seasons in a four-year span and win two BCS titles.

Why is Urban Meyer reviled when he should be revered?

This year's defense was the worst unit Ohio State has fielded during Meyer's tenure as coach in Columbus. I could tell you a zillion amusing stories about Spurrier; I don't have one I can tell you about Meyer.

First, if Meyer does come back, it's going to have to be a flawless fit with the potential for him to turn it into a national title contender.
