The truth about Urban Meyer and that SI cover



Meyersicover When I posted the news about Florida coach Urban Meyer being one of four SEC coaches on the cover of a special SEC preview edition of Sports Illustrated, I thought it was just an interesting bit of information.

But many of you took issue with how goofy Meyer looked with those sunglasses tilted, and frankly, just the photo itself.

Guess what?

 Meyer agrees with you. And he never had any intention of having that photo grace the cover.

"They took like 20 pictures,'' Meyer said about the SI photo shoot. "And at the end, he said 'Hey, just one time can you take a picture with your glasses off?' And I said, 'No, I'm not doing that.' And he said, 'C'mon, it's just for me.' And I said, 'No, I'm not going to do it. Then, okay, one picture.' And that's the one they used.''
