Florida head coach Urban Meyer resigned today, shocking the college football world. Meyer shared the troubling news that an undisclosed health problem would interfere with his ability to be a good husband and father as well as coach. My prayers go out to him (and I don't say that lightly).

That could come down to whom the Florida administration decides to hire as Meyer's replacement.
