Florida coach Urban Meyer spends night in Gainesville hospital



UMEYERAfter arriving home following Florida's 32-13 loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship game, Florida coach Urban Meyer spent the night at a local hospital.

Meyer was treated for dehydration, according to Florida athletic officials. He was released shortly after 1:30 p.m. today. School officials would not comment on various reports that Meyer was also suffering from chest pains.

"He's doing fine now,'' Florida director of communications Steve McClain said Sunday afternoon.

The Gators are expected to receive an invitation to play in the Sugar Bowl when bowl selections are announced tonight at 8 on FOX.
