Nice While It's Lasted

Maybe Charlie Strong won't need to go too far to get that first head coaching job-unless he follows Meyer to Notre Dame, where they both coached as assistants. (And there are some other places Strong should be seriously considered for this offseason--it would just be a matter of how soon Weiss is fired and Meyer is hired. With what he has done with these new defensive players in such a short time, I would imagine Strong would prefer the Florida job, but he may not want it to be his first job, so he doesn't end up like Zook, following a legend in your first head coach job. Foley probably also would want to avoid this scenario.)

UF hands ex-coach Spurrier worst loss at The Swamp in 90 games

Spurrier and Meyer met at midfield after the beatdown, and Meyer said Spurrier told him, "Good luck. Go on a four-game winning streak."

"This team is a lot better than the one two years ago," said Spurrier, whose previous worst loss in Gainesville was a 33-21 setback in 1993 against rival and eventual national champion Florida State. "This team they have now is a lot stronger than that one in my opinion."
