I had a chance to speak with Urban Meyer for a few minutes last Friday before he teed off in the pro-am round of the Urban Meyer Scramble, and he said he’s feeling really good and that his plan to return in the spring is still on.
Meyer sounded good, and he looked really good, like a guy who’s got a lot of juice again.
When I think back to the Meyer we saw at the Sugar Bowl, he seemed kind of lethargic, and he had that almost-vacant look in his eyes at times.
The Meyer I saw on Friday, well, that vibrant sparkle is back in his eyes.
Meyer is not going to address the issues with his health. It’s a private matter, and I’m certainly fine with that.
Whatever knocked him down back in December, Meyer seems to be recovering. With a few more weeks between now and the start of spring drills, Meyer appears (and sounds) on target to return.
Unless something happens (or doesn’t happen) between now and then, I suspect we’ll all be writing the “Meyer is Back” story on March 17.
