Recruiting booty in hand, Urban headed for a getaway

Florida started the day with the projected top recruiting class in the country.  They’ll end it with an even stronger grip on the mythical title.

Now that the recruiting heavy lifting is done, head coach Urban Meyer can now take the much discussed leave of absence that’s dominated Gator news for the last month or so.

Seriously.  Honestly.  He will.  He means it this time.

Speaking to reporters this evening, presumably after pulling the final blue-chip recruit out of his… uhhh… ear, Meyer said that off-and-on interim coach and offensive coordinator Steve Addaziowill be in charge of day-to-day activities for awhile” now that the 2010 recruiting season has officially ended.

He would not, however, say how long Addazio would have the keys to the program, saying only that he’s “not sure” how long “awhile” is.

The only thing that Meyer would cop to is that he has, likely at the urging of his wife and athletic director, a couple of getaways planned.

Meyer has already publicly announced that he will be on the sidelines coaching the Gators when spring practice commences on March 17.

    Nice to see the gun get reloaded. Looks like Bama and the Gators are good to brawl for SEC titles for a while….no wonder Kiffy ran away.

    gator_prof……..
    Did you even notice what Kiffin pulled in at USC? Some believe the class is actually stronger than Florida’s due the number of 5 and 4 star recruits.
    Some people just have blinders.

    Way to go Urban – finishing strong. Looks like the SEC will be the Division to beat for years to come.
    Lame Kiffin will implode USC and move on to the NFL. He only really cares about himself, and it only takes a year or two make to smell the stink that he calls coaching.
    GO GATORS!!!

    So the guy works hard and wants/needs to take some time off? We all do that!. What’s the news angle here? So the guy flip flops a bit. Who cares? We all do that – look at NBC and their talk show hosts! Put up some real news, OK?

    Dug,
    Kiffy did well recruiting. He can recruit. Titles aren’t won by merely being a great recruiter…see Zook, Ron.
    Urban can recruit and coach. He won a title with Zookers players and another with his.
    Pete had arguably the best athletes year in and year out, but he only won a single title…why? He lost Norm Chow and everything went down hill from there. Kiffy isn’t as good as PC and Chow is still at UCLA….does USC have a OC yet?
    Simply put, the SEC is a much, much, much better conference than the lack 10. Kiffy ran from the competition as he would never win a SEC title with at least two superior recruiters in the conference and multiple superior coaches. Given that 5/10 top recruiting classes are in the SEC, it isn’t about to become weaker.
    Final point, let’s see what the NCAA says later this month.
