Shelley Meyer, the wife of current Ohio State coach, Urban Meyer, sat down with the Gatorsports.com for an interview and talked about her husband’s time coaching the football team. Here’s what Shelley Meyer had to say about Florida fans, who were led to two National Championships by Meyer, before he briefly retired from coaching because of health concerns.
“Because, not one person that is close to us (from their time in Florida) has ever come up and said anything bad. ‘Why did you leave? You faked it. You weren’t sick. You had this Ohio State thing lined up the entire time.’ I would hear that all the time, and I was like ‘Uh, no.’ Because I was not coming here. So, trust me, that was not planned. So, the people who are critical of us, it’s not the people who know us. It’s the people who aren’t even around the program. They just want their team to win, and whoever can get their team to win, that’s who they’re for. And if you can’t do it or if you left them, then they’ll hate you.”
