Urban Meyer meets with Coach K

Posted on: April 3, 2010 10:46 am

A couple of tidbits out of Gainesville:

Urban Meyer met with Mike Krzyzewski at some point during the offseason to get advice on how to handle his health issues. Coach K took time off in 1999 and 2002 for hip surgery. If Duke wins tonight, I intend to ask K here in Indianapolis about his meeting with The Urbanator. Stay tuned to this space for an update.

Also, running back Jeff Demps ran a 10.11 100 meters on Friday during the Florida Relays. That's the fastest time in the world this year. We need to see more of that breakaway speed on the football field. In his first two seasons, Demps has averaged six carries per game. That should change with a certain Mr. Tebow no longer carrying the ball.

Speaking of quarterback, Meyer said he plans to play two of them in the fall. That's sort of a revelation with everyone assuming the John Brantley era was set to begin. Meyer basically said that redshirt freshman Jordan Reed will be in on third-down short yardage situations. The 6-foot-3 Reed is a converted quarterback who had been working at tight end in the spring. Now there are reports Reed has been working in the Wildcat and throwing some passes as well. And Meyer loves him.

"I think we do (plan to play two quarterbacks) because we have to," Meyer told Florida Today. "On third down and three I know what we want to do and Johnny's (Brantley) probably not going to do it just because he's not that kind of player. Everybody said we just ran Tim because he was a great player. That's partially true ... Jordan Reed has proven he can do it."

Coach K Has No Thugs On His Team

   Coach K's team just won another championship. He has no thugs like mervin has. What % of Coach K's team walk the isle and get the paper, try 85%. I would bet mervin would be lucky to see 25% of his team walk on stage to get the paper. So what can a class act like Coack K have to talk about with mervin.

p;     I think he was picked number 1 overall in the NFL draft. Thats where a REAL qb would be drafted. Where will toeblow be picked. Try as a project 25-30th. IF the gators is where EVERY top player wants to play, why did Stafford not go to Florida. Why did he go to a school where to get a w you have to WIN a game, NOT where atleast 1 and maybe 2 games were given to the gators last year by the SEC and the SEC zebras. They tried their best to put mervin & toeblow on top of the world again. But Coach Saban ended that show in Atlanta.

Too bad, another jealous non GATOR. When your school has something that is worth a comment, I'm sure you will receive the press you are so longinf for.
Get overit. GATOR NATION is BIG!!!

I don't get this one.  Half of the article is about the speed of Demps and the increase of carries.  The other half is about in short yardage, FL will use a wildcat offense with a converted tight end.  Ok Demps is not a power back, but I don't see a tight end being the answer.  A short across the middle, or demps out of the backfield, or a pump and an "accurate" throw to a streaking wide out.  I can understand this if it was a once in a while thing, but the article is written as if every third and under 3 will be the wildcat. 

Brantley is the man and unless he isn't showing up in camp, he would be my full time starter.

It sounds like a meeting between Lex Luthor and the Joker to take control of the world.

At least when THE GATORS play in Atlanta it's not in the Peach Bowl.

You're not worth reporting. However....if nobody outside of Florida cares why did you reply? There's two things you need to accept: The Florida Gators are not going anywhere ( post Tebow) and the DOMINANCE over UGA will continue. It has to really bother you to see your beloved Bulldoga get beat year after year by a team with "punk " fans and a "No Class" coach.  Hell, most years UGA can'y even keep it close ( and spare me with the one victory over Meyer as Tebow was playing with one arm and UGA stll only won by 10). So you continue to read all things GATOR and we will continue to spank your punk ass over and over and over........SEE YA!!!!! Sealed

The last time the Gators used two quarterbacks was with Tebow and Leak. That seemed to work out pretty well.
