Urban Meyer on track for his next 'official' return

Since the final whistle sounded on Florida’s spring practice, Urban Meyer has — as expected — taken on the lead role in an updated version of The Invisible Man.

In his place has been offensive coordinator Steve Addazio, who has taken to the booster circuit normally traveled by Meyer at this time of the year, and even stood in for the Gator head coach during an SEC teleconference last week.

Come July, however, Meyer looks to be on track to take the reins back over from Addazio.

According to a press release issued by the conference, Meyer is scheduled to take part in the SEC Football Media Days, held this year at the Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover, Ala., from July 21-23.

Meyer, along with unnamed UF “Student-Athletes”, is scheduled to appear before the media between 3-5 ET on the first day of the gala.  New Kentucky head coach Joker Phillips and some of his players are also slated to appear during the same block of time.

For those interested, here’s how the complete schedule for the three-day event looks.  Please, mark you calendars accordingly.

    I am sure his daughter will be thrilled about this…. I guess she lost him again. The scumbag should have stayed retired.

    310 days since the “Comment Ratings” disappeared from PFT/CFT – what about that Mike Florio?
    Wishing Urban a stress free season in 2010. I’m hoping his decision to stay doesn’t further complicate his heart issues.

    @ Pier588: Just sent yet another email asking about the rating system. Will post a response here when I get one. Don’t hold your breath, though…

    JT – greatly appreciate you listening and inquiring.
    All I want is a straight answer as to whether the “Comment Ratings” will be coming back or not.
    I have some working knowledge of how these features work. It shouldn’t be that big of a deal for NBC – unless they just don’t want them to return and if that’s the case – say so.
    I’m very appreciative of the new hampster solution; PFT/CFT has been working much better than it did last April. I won’t get my hopes up.

    Is this before or after he retires due to God then unretires and then retires?

    ‘Meyer, along with unnamed UF “Student-Athletes” …’
    Read: Depends on which ones can make bail that week.

    The UF attorneys are fantasstic; no one will be held without bail or with unmakable bail.
