Urban Meyer is a Parrothead. To each their own and all that, but doesn’t the level of badassery of being the head coach of the University of Florida football team get negated by knowing the born leader of this highly successful
franchise college team occasionally dons a flower print shirt and wiggles his butt to “Margaritaville” in concert?
Apparently, Urban Meyer made it a point to buddy up to his hero at the Super Bowl in 2007 and has been begging him to attend a U of F game for years. Yesterday, he got to skip around the locker room in glee as Jimmy Buffett attended the 56-6 beatdown of Spurrier in his old home. Meyer may never come down from this. If only there was some way to mellow out…
We hope the same thing happens at next weekend’s Grey Cup, when we find out Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman invited Leonard Cohen to stand next to him for his greatest triumph. Besides, you know, working with Webster Slaughter.
