The only thing is, outside of Ohio and especially in Florida, Urban Meyer is a hypocrite. There's no way to sugarcoat it.
That being said, I do think Ohio State is in a situation where Meyer can install his own brand, recruit the top in-state talent, and leave the brunt work to Luke Fickell if he decides to retain him as associate head coach (that was being rumored a few weeks ago). I think even with NCAA sanctions, he will have more of a work/family balance than he did at Florida.
I don't have a dog in this race, but the only thing concerning me with Meyer if I'm Ohio State is that while he had all-everything Tim Tebow as the face of his tenure at Florida, there were up to 30 players arrested during his tenure. It's a home run hire for the future of Ohio State football, but for setting compliance with the NCAA, it could something to keep an eye on.
