It was good to see Urban Meyer leave Florida yesterday. I like Meyer and while it is sad that he has to leave Florida under these circumstances, I am glad for him and his family that he made this decision before the stress of the job caused him to die of a heart attack. As Yahoo!â€™s Dr. Saturday says.
There’s something to be said for his luck, too: At 45, he walks away with no permanent heart damage and no immediate threats to his long-term health if he manages his stress. He doesn’t get the fairy tale ending in Gaineville, the third national championship that would have encased his legacy there in solid gold for at least the rest of his children’s and grandchildren’s lives. At least now he gets to see his grandchildren.
