He will take a year off and then go somewhere else just like he did at Florida.  Too much heat at OSU over the coach that beat his wife. He is distancing himself.

Exactly.

What about Georgia Tech?  naahhh...:lol:

They should totally do it.  They could never get that quality of a coach / recruiter under normal circumstances, but he is damaged goods right now.  They should go for it.

That would be a good move for Ga tech, if they're willing to pursue him. But he comes with a price tag also.

No way Ga Tech is going to pay what it would cost to get Urban Meyer. They probably pay their HC about 20 percent of what the HC's make at other major schools.

But after all he's been through, he may be done as a football coach.

I mean, Tech would have to get some donors on the phone.  But they have donors with the financial means to make it happen.  It's just that the donors have been tight with the pocket book with the garbage Tech has been putting out for years.  Urban Meyer might inspire them.

its been said that he has a small brain tumor that he is dealing with.

Yep. His medical issues and overall health are among the big reasons I think he may be done for good.

Yeah but he's had it for his entire coaching career basically. He might need to have another surgery.

It's a risk, but the guy is only 54 years old.  I don't think he is ready to quit.

From their recent track record regarding their football program, it's hard to believe Tech has any serious interest in putting any emphasis or financial support into returning Tech to football prominence.

Yeah, maybe, but I really think they pushed Paul Johnson out more than he decided to "take a break", so somebody over there wants more hopefully.

He just left one of the most coveted HC jobs in the country. Hard to see that as a sign he wants to keep coaching.

I think that is somewhat because of the scandal, OSU took so much heat for not firing him.

So you think OSU pushed him out? Seems unlikely they would do that at this point. If they're not pushing him, why would he leave at this point since he's survived the scandal and probably would have seen few if any ongoing repercussions, unless he's just done with coaching.

I'm just saying the dude's track record is he changes his mind a lot lol. It's wishful thinking on my part.  I'd like to see GT stop sucking.

I'm sorry, bruh. Should've been reading between the lines instead of being Mr. Negatory. lol.  No doubt Meyer would certainly be a prime candidate to bring back Tech football. I would love to see them hire a big name HC and get back in the mix again myself.
