The Urban Meyer’s Drama is Too Bonkers to Ignore

Chicago Bears

Trying to wrap my mind around the last week following the Urban Meyer saga has been a task in ridiculousness.

I mean, imagine explaining this tweet to yourself at this time last week:

This is the latest snapshot in a moment that was made for daytime TV. Here’s the gist:

One video surfaced of Jaguars Head Coach Urban Meyer at his restaurant — Urban Meyer’s Pint House — with a young woman who wasn’t his wife dancing … closely. Another, days later, popped up with Meyer apparently touching the same woman’s backside. This came just days after the team’s loss to the Bengals in Cincinnati. And as you might’ve guessed, Meyer didn’t fly home with the team — which is an oddity on its own. But then to see what has transpired since is simply wild.

Every day comes with a seemingly more sensational plot point than the day before. Observe:

And it’s never good when The Onion has you nailed:

 

Things are in such disarray, folks around the league are already looking forward to in-season replacements:

It’s all a mess for Meyer and the Jaguars. His team is 0-4 and has just a 2 percent chance of making the postseason, based on FiveThirtyEight’s calculations and simulations. Only the Lions (1%) have longer odds. The team’s first first-round pick (Trevor Lawrence) has more interceptions (7) than touchdowns (5) to go along with a woeful 66.4 passer rating. Another first-round pick (RB Travis Etienne) is on IR and his playing status for this season is in doubt. And while Meyer has publicly denied interest in the open USC job, a return to college football remains a highly discussed topic because folks simply don’t believe him.

The Bears don’t play the Jaguars this year. And that stinks, in part, because I love football drama (so long as it doesn’t involve my favorite team). But if Meyer stays true to his word and sticks around, maybe the Bears will see him in 2022, 2023, or 2024, depending on how the schedule rotation works. However, if I had to guess, Jacksonville will look different then than it does now.
