Caught this shot of Florida great Tim Tebow (read: the Winner), “tebowing” this weekend after he heard about Urban Liar’s decision to come out of “retirement” and become head coach at Ohio State.
While I can’t say this is exactly how I feel about the situation, it’s still pretty funny. Here is the funniest excerpt from the letter. Find the rest over at The Bleacher Report.
Urban, we wish you the best of luck as a Buckeye.
Actually, we really don’t. Actually, we hope that the recruits will see the way you stabbed the Florida football program in the back with a scarlet and grey knife. We hope the fans will remain skeptical of you as long as you are there. We hope that Michigan beats you every single year. We hope that every Ohio State Buckeye knows the same pain that we, the Florida Gators, feel right now.
We loved you, Urban. You had us tied around your finger. You could tell us to jump off a bridge behind you, and we’d do it. You had us thinking that the orange and blue would forever be victorious. You had us thinking that the school actually meant something to you.
And then something happened.

Here is what Urban himself had to say after his first retirement…
“To not try would be not the right thing to do,” Meyer said. “What I didn’t want to have happen, and I made this clear to [Foley], if I am able to go coach, I want to coach at one place, the University of Florida.”
“It would be a travesty, it would be ridiculous to all of a sudden come back and get the feeling back, get the health back, feel good again and then all of a sudden go throw some other colors on my shirt and go coach.”
Here is a picture if there is any confusion as to what colors each school wears:
Today marks a very dark day for all of the University of Florida. After a week of rumors and reports, we all waited to hear if it was really true Urban Meyer would return to coaching – only 1 year after saying he was basically dying and wanted to spend more time with his family – at, out of all places, The Ohio State University (read: The Crapper). Now ESPN reports that he is and it all looks to be true.
Come on Urban, even LeBron didn’t want to be in Ohio!
P.S. – In case no one remembers:
2006 BCS Championship – Gators 41 – Ohio State – 14
2007 NCAA Championship – Gators – 84 Ohio State – 75
