Remove Meyer From Our Circle of Trust

Apparently, he’s not just Urban Liar; he’s Urban Hypocrite, too.  He created and fostered a toxic  locker room at UF and then shamefully set fire to it on his way out the door. After reading the results of a three-month investigation conducted by Matt Hayes of The Sporting News even Florida fans will have to admit that the coach who won them two national titles is as two-faced as they come.

Here’s all you need to know:  The Sporting News story starts with Meyer, the new coach at Ohio State, relentlessly pursuing Maryland prep All-American wide receiver  Stefon Diggs, who’d narrowed his choices to Ohio State, Florida and Maryland. According to The Sporting News story, multiple sources  said Meyer “told the Diggs family that he wouldn’t let his son go to Florida because of significant character issues in the locker room.”

And then Hayes correctly points out the hypocrisy: “Character issues that we now know were fueled by a culture Meyer created. Character issues that gutted what was four years earlier the most powerful program in college football.”
