Rob Lowe: ‘Urban Meyer for President’ #NationalChampions
Urban Frank Meyer, III (born July 10, 1964) is an American college footballcoach and former player, currently the head football coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes. Meyer served as the head coach of the Bowling Green Falcons from 2001 to 2002, the Utah Utes from 2003 to 2004, and the Florida Gators from 2005 to 2010.
Meyer was born in Toledo, Ohio, grew up in Ashtabula, Ohio and attended theUniversity of Cincinnati, where he played football. During his time at the University of Florida, he coached the Gators to two BCS National Championship Game victories, during the 2006 and 2008 seasons.
During his leadership at Florida Coach Meyer had a young man named Tim Tebow:
Tebow became the Florida Gators‘ starting quarterback during the 2007 season when he became the first college sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. In 2008, Tebow led Florida to a 13–1 record and its second national championship in three years, and was named the offensive MVP of the national championship game. The Gators again went 13–1 in 2009, his senior year. At the conclusion of his college career, he held the Southeastern Conference‘s all-time records in both career passing efficiency* and total rushing touchdowns, appearing second and tenth (respectively) in the NCAA record book in these categories.
*However AND unfortunately Tim Tebow was CASTIGATED for his Christian faith and belittled every single day of his career. “He Can’t Throw” by damn near if not ALL in the football world. ESPN AND former NFL players come to mind.
