In December, Urban Meyer shocked the college football world by announcing that he was going to resign as coach of the Florida Gators.

I'm sure many of Meyer's players have seen this soft side of him before, although probably not on the practice field. But the man who is able to motivate his stars to fight for a spot on special teams will certainly earn his players' trust even more with these recent events.

You may doubt the new Urban Meyer, but don't let that newfound smile fool you. He is back and better than ever.
