It’s been an up and down season for the Florida Gators. Having lost Tim Tebow, among others, to the NFL, many questions loomed over Gator nation.

The Gators still had the national respect they had earned over the last 4 years under Urban Meyer, starting the season ranked #4.

Early offensive struggles plagued the Gators as they couldn’t find their groove like years past. That, combined with upstart SEC teams like Auburn and Arkansas, led to a down year for Florida.

Just when things were looking up for Florida, coach Urban Meyer declared he would resign after the Outback Bowl against Penn State, in order to spend more time with his family.

This decision came as somewhat of a surprise, since just last season, Meyer flirted with retirement and came back.

In the Outback Bowl, Florida led 30-24 over Penn State late in the 4th quarter with Penn State driving. The Nittany Lions threw a pick 6 to Florida safety Ahmad Black to seal the victory for the Gators 37-24.

What’s next for Urban Meyer? Time will tell. All I know is that he can coach wherever he wants with the resume he’s built over his college coaching career.
