In a bizarre week of coaching news in the SEC, none is stranger than the news about Florida coach Urban Meyer.

Meyer took a leave of absence after the Sugar Bowl to work on his health while not specifying what those health issues might have been.

We can now confirm what was believed all the time. 

Meyer underwent successful hemorrhoid surgery to remove some Kiffins that were apparently headed west instead of north like they should have.

The Kiffins were affectionately named as they were removed from the buttocks of Coach Meyer earlier today.  One named Lane and one named Monte.  There was another hemorrhoid attached to the Lane, which was given a more scientific name, Orgeron.  It appeared to be locked onto the backside of the Lane.

Coach Meyer released a statement to the media just a short time ago to say thanks for the well wishes and he stated for the record, he was happy not to have a pain in the butt anymore.

More to come as this twist unfolds.
