Urban Meyer, also known as the Elliptical Man because he works out on one at Gainesville Health and Fitness every morning, is heading to Arizona today to work with the ESPN boys.
“Remember Glendale?” he asked me today.
Remember it? It was my best week ever in my job. The Marriott is walking distance from the Camelback Mountain. The bowl game does everything for the media but write our stories. There isn’t a hospitality suite. There are two. And, of course, Florida winning the national title game there didn’t stink.
Meyer is fired up about joining the crew for the national title game.
“I hope I really like it,” he said.
It’s clear that this is what he wants to do, something stress-free and enjoyable. He also has agreed to start making occasional appearances on my radio show starting next week. I asked him exactly what he’ll be doing with ESPN in Arizona.
“I don’t know,” he said. “They just told me to be ready.”
