In a USA Today article posted last week, college football analyst Beano Cook predicts that Urban Meyer will be the head coach of the Ohio State football team in 2012.
“I think Ohio State has major problems and I think Jim Tressel has major problems,” Cook, whose comments were reported by The Columbus Dispatch, said during a Thursday ESPN radio interview. “I’ve said on my Podcast. . . (that) Urban Meyer will be the coach at Ohio State in 2012. That was my prediction and I stick by that prediction.”
After illness concerns, Meyer left his coaching post wil the Florida Gators last season with an eye towards rest, recover and spending more time with the family. However, Urb quickly signed up as an ESPN analyst for the upcoming season which means he’ll be back on the road, away from his family just like before.
So saying that Meyer will soon be coaching isn’t much of a stretch. If he was really serious about his health and his family would he have taken that job with ESPN?
As for current OSU coach Jim Tressel, should one more shoe fall in Columbus that could be it for the sweater. And chances are we’ll see another as more information surfaces. With key suspensions, Tressel and his tarnished team are already looking at a down 2011 season and if they fail to make a BCS or a significant bowl game that could spell the end for Tressel.
