I am committed to ESPN and will not pursue any coaching opportunities this fall. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the people at ESPN this spring and remain very excited about my role with the network this fall. Jim Tressel has been a respected friend and colleague for a long time. I wish Jim and his family the very best now and in the future.

Urban Meyer's statement regarding Jim Tressel leaving the Ohio State Buckeyes and about what his future plans are. Notice the "this fall" part of the statement. Very telling indeed. Meyer is no idiot when it comes to picking a program and there is no way he is going to coach Ohio State unless he knows exactly what he is getting into.

Not surprising at all with the way things are getting worse and worse for Tressel and Ohio State. Let the Urban Meyer rumors to Ohio State begin!

Overall Health of Florida Gators Football - ESPN

Florida Rating: 3 The Gators struggled in former coach Urban Meyer's final season, and new coach Will Muschamp might not be able to turn things around immediately. But Florida has too much talent and too many built-in advantages to stay mediocre for very long. The number grading system used by Mark Schlabach: 5: Consistent winner with potential to be BCS bowl contender every season 4: Potential to join the sport's elite in the near future 3: Recent mediocre results but seems to be building momentum 2: Recent success but seems to be headed in wrong direction 1: Below-average program with little success in past or future For those interested: FSU was given a 4 Miami was given a 2 Georgia was given a 2 Tennessee was given a 2

"Being a role model is huge," Tebow said. "That’s so much more important than scoring touchdowns or trying to win championships because at the end of the day, that’s just a game. If you can encourage someone, inspire someone and put a smile on their face, that’s actually meaningful. That actually changes peoples' lives, and that’s what I’m in it for."

Tim Tebow was in Naples, Florida where he delivered the keynote address at the Winged Foot Scholar-Athlete Award banquet. Does it get any better than that? (NaplesNews.com)
