But if Ohio State gets USC'd then Meyer is not going to go there.
As for D'Antonio - good name but he is a Tressel protege, no? Might be a hard sell now.....
I'm not so sure about that. Urban Meyer is an Ohio native, former OSU assistant coach and has long said that OSU would be considered his dream job. USC was Lane Kiffin's dream job and he readily took that job when it opened up, despite the dark clouds hanging over the program.
And it's not like Urban Meyer is in any hurry or pressure to win right now. The guy already has two national championships under his belt. Maybe he's done with coaching altogether anyway, unless it's at Ohio State. If that's the case, I doubt a two-year bowl ban would impact whether he'd come home.
Personally, I'd rather have Bob Stoops, another Ohio native and Bucks fan.
Or how about John Gruden, another coach with extensive Ohio ties?
