New website aimed at keeping Meyer at UF



GAINESVILLE - A Florida alumnus has started a website aimed at trying to keep Urban Meyer from bolting to the NFL.

Fred Marks, a member of the Class of 2004, has started the website

Marks said he fans should consider the following facts, which is part of his reason for starting the website:

1) Meyer has never been the head coach for more than two years at any school.
2) This is Urban Meyer’s third year at the University of Florida.
3) Urban Meyer is the hottest young college coach in America!
4) The NFL already claimed a Gator football coach in Steve Spurrier (2001) and the NBA hired away (then released) Gator basketball coach Billy Donovan (2007)
5) A logical person would conclude that Urban Meyer is the next Gator coach to be lured away!

He said he plans to keep the website in existence in the hope of "pressuring Urban Meyer to commit to fulfilling his contract with the University of Florida by remaining head football coach until at least 2013.''
