The offseason cannot come to an end soon enough for countless players and coaches around the country. That much holds especially true for former Florida Gators and current Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.

With former UF star Aaron Hernandez currently sitting behind bars, awaiting trial on the first-degree murder of 27-year old Odin Lloyd, Meyer’s old coaching habits in The Swamp have come under intense scrutiny. First, his wife and daughter took to Twitter in his defense, and then he himself finally opened up on Hernandez in an interview.

With the recent news coming out that Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde may have punched a police officer’s daughter (what??) the spotlight yet again turns to Meyer – and not because of his 12-0 record in his first year in Columbus.

After all, his 2008 national championship-winning Gators team won a few games themselves, but at what cost to character and to the overall prestige of the program? Well, numbers never lie.

I’m not sayin’, I’m just sayin’.
