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."

So you are saying unless someone runs as fast as Bolt we should not hear about it?  I guess no one should ever write anything about 100m times again.

why would a gator fan report on a low down dawg crap fan. Dawgs are the scum of college football anyway. Besides, your team is not in the same league with Fla/Ala. anyway.

Track Speed

Look, the guy's time was sick in the 100m but the only reason it is the fastest in the world (allegedly) is the fact there hasnt been an international track meet yet

It would be more of a story if he ran as fast as was it wind aided and who was doing the timing?

translated = they don't really have "one"Meyer prefers a Tebow type athlete.  He doesn't have that so he will use two to accomplish the same. 

John Brantley is a great passer, not sure where Dodd is getting his ifo, probably from some seconhand notes from someone who actually goes to practice, But Reed will be our starting TE this year not our second strig QB and personally I'd like to see Trey Burton behind Brantley.  He is a strong runner.

XZ, you really need to get a life. Ive been reading your rants about the Gators, Meyer and Tebow for almost 2 years and frankly, Im so sick of it and of you. Try supporting your team for a change and quit crying about teams that consistantly beat the hell out of your BullDogs. Yes, the Gators get alot of press, so what? Teams at the top generally do. Im pretty sure if Richt and BoBo were leading the BullDogs to the National limelight, UGA would be in the national news as well. We all know that has as much of a chance of happening as you moving out of your mothers basement and boxing up your Star Wars action figure collection. Everyone is just fed up with your crying...

I promise you that if you just ignore this little dork, he'll just go away.  Much like any other 10 year old girl would do, go cry in their pillow.  So tough to on the internet.  Everybody is a punk.  Probably getting beaten up as I type.

But the Gators own him. Or her?  That's why he keeps posting about them.  Because his own team is irrelavent.
