Pat Forde Reports, You Decide

The media was understandably surprised by Urban Meyer’s abrupt resignation from the University of Florida yesterday, and I don’t think anyone took it worse than Pat Forde.  Taking a page out of the Fox News playbook, Forde couches his completely baseless accusation in the form of a question

Not only that, but Newton’s checkered Florida past — possession of a stolen laptop and a reported series of academic cheating issues — was getting a rather glossy makeover from the quarterback when he became a national sensation. Newton’s story was that he departed Gainesville because he didn’t want to back up Tebow another year, when Florida folks were quietly saying Newton’s indiscretions might have left him little choice but to go.

And there was Cecil Newton trying to shake down Meyer’s buddy Mullen in Cam’s recruitment by Mississippi State, then choosing Auburn instead. If you know that backstory — and you’d assume Meyer would — watching Newton lead a conference rival to the BCS Championship Game could only add to your esophageal distress.

In fact, all that makes you wonder about the timing of this announcement. Aren’t college football’s best players scheduled to receive an armload of hardware Thursday at The Home Depot College Football Awards?

Would Meyer be petty enough to purposefully upstage them?

Well, would he?

 Great question Pat.  After all, can Urban prove that he didn’t make his announcement to steal the spotlight from Cam Newton and other recipients of various awards?  Can he?  No, he can’t.

    I think a true fan of the sport has to ask himself: Is Urban Meyer a human being or an alien? Sure he looks like and acts like a human and has a birth certificate; but can he PROVE he is not an alien? In fact, I posit that this abrupt resignation is circumstantial evidence showing that the University of Florida was beginning to uncover Meyer’s true identity; and Meyer is choosing to cut ties and return to his home planet, Narfron.
