I think most AD's would be pretty enthused with a 82% winning percentage and 2 National Titles.
Urban Meyer isn't the perfect choice due to the health concerns, but if that is the biggest drawback I don't see how he doesn't get the job. For OSU there is certainly worse things than having Luke Fickell as a fall back (assuming he does win out).
