ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- His one-year hiatus from coaching is over, and now Urban Meyer is back -- both in his home state and in the Big Ten.
And this is not good news for Michigan.
Other than Woody Hayes himself coming back from the grave, this is the best-case scenario for Ohio State. Even with the possibility of NCAA sanctions looming, the hiring of Meyer in Columbus means this: Michigan-Ohio State is about to get really, really interesting.
The Michigan-Ohio State rivalry hardly needs any fuel, but the hiring of Urban Meyer by the Buckeyes brings a tanker full.
