Urban Meyer never seems to have a bad season. Let’s just put it this way, Meyer is 24-2 at Ohio State and he has a winning percentage of 83.7. Keep in mind that his teams have played some of the toughest teams that college football has to offer. After all, he did coach in the SEC and he now coaches in the Big Ten.

Urban Meyer coached the Gators to two national championships. His Florida teams played the best teams in the country in both seasons, but still managed to make two title games, and win them. It is only a matter of time before Meyer wins his next championship at Ohio State.
