By that, do you mean winning two Natty's in his first five years?
I think he could win more than two;)

I agree B-man
And he did not mispell a four letter word either. Tird.
Seriously all of these debbie downvoters, take away from the content. The OP is a new poster and it is a reasonable question/concern. Either respond with an substantive opinion or don't.
Debbie downvoters are trolls too. All negative and mostly never any positive contribution to the topic.
Go ahead Debbies hit me.

Great post...it happened once, so why can't it happen again? History can repeat itself and he's under more of a microscope at tOSU than he was at UF. As much as we've read that he's changed or promised his family one thing or another, it's nearly impossible to change the mindset that he has.
It is a legitimate question. I too sometimes wonder if he's keeping that balance. Meyer is only 48 years old. I would LOVE to see him coach here another 20 years. I would LOVE to see him retire here.
The problem at Florida is that he didn't have an off switch. It was full bore 24/7. He overworked himself into retirement to the point he was gassed. His last year at UF he didn't look healthy. He looked like a man that had been through a war. A personal war.
The key here, is finding that balance. Knowing when to turn the switch off. Keeping up with family and learning to relax to find that balance between work and personal time.
The thing is, Meyer is an extreme competitor on and off the field. That's who he is. He's driven by energy within that he will not, and cannot be out worked by anybody. That's something we need to accept. We praise his relentless nature, but it's just natural to be worried about him.
I certainly hope this time around Meyer can truly find the true balance between work and family. Knowing when to turn the switch off, then back on when he enters the work force.
And I shall rejoice in victory for another 365 days over That School Up North.
Know why "hilarious" is such a funny word? Because it's hilarious.
I feel stupid about not checking on the spelling before I posted this. I was at work and in a hurry. I hope Meyer is able to stay here for a long time, but he does have a history of overworking himself. He still looks very intense to me. I'm new to this posting; I don't know what trolls are. I'm just a 42 year Buckeye fan that was asking a legitimate question. Save your venom for someone who deserves it.
Nothing wrong with the question at all. Sometimes when we communicate on the boards it doesn't come out the way we intend. It seems posters assumed you were just trying to stir up trouble. Keep in mind, since we hired Urban, rivals have been speculating what you just posed.
Regardless, its relevant. But at the same time, I don't think we should concern ourselves with it.
I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters.

I understand the question but what has happened so far that makes you question he is doing better? He's gonna recruit like crazy, but that doesn't mean you can't eat better and workout and have a better family life, which by all accounts he has done. He isn't going to all of a sudden be a laid back coach. I think he will be fine, and he has a lot more people looking out for his health this go around since it happened before.
I don't see this as a troll post. It's a legitimate question, but whatever happened at UF does not seem to still be an issue. I think Urban was honest about why he left, but not the details. There's more to that story. But, I think this is also a dream come true for him.
WELCOME....this place can be brutal to newbies (and oldies like me)....its a legitimate concern and an even more legitimate post....and dont let the downvotes get to ya and stop ya from posting....

Urban is prime a couple of the assistants are struggling.
thanks. i appreciate that. go bucks!
An old dog is ever faithful...to the Buckeyes!
I think the "doing everyone's job" was more about the NCAA stuff but it could apply to his staff too. He needs to trust his coaches but with a new unfamiliar staff, he stepped in to fix a problem. I don't see that continuing because either the WR's & Defense will get better and stay better or there will be new coaches.
Cleveland Orchestra Baby!! World's greatest!! The Brown's wet dream is to be them. The Ohio State University-Where the Illibuck Lives!
welcome back, MattC.
Since none of us truly know how he is treating himself, let's just hope he keeps doing a great job without burning himself out in a few years.
Its is kind of a no win situation for him? If he was seen day after day in some club smoking a big cigar and reading a paper or on some golf course we would compalin about him "not working hard".... also going 12-0 in his first year did him no favor...he can only diminish from here....lookin at him and his work ethic, I think he has one speed...forward and fast.....
His speedand activity are catching and have to be implemented by his staff..they too are on the move.....I have a wife like that--you get up in the middle of the night to take a wizz and when you come back she has made the bed!
