    Will he get the cyst removed from his brain or was that bullshit?

    Are we talking major D1 levels? Because I'm sure he's yelling at middle schoolers as he passes by UA/Dublin school practices out of his vehicle to spread the team wider.

    Here is why I think he would be an absolute fool. The brain is affected profoundly by ageing. From the age of 55 and accelerating dramatically by the age of 60, the normal brain experiences physiological changes. These include shrinking of the brain and the increasing incidence of white matter lesions that affect cognitive function. Stress, such as he would experience coaching, impacts on the ability to focus attention, concentrate, and make decisions as the midbrain responds to stress hormones and takes over from the prefrontal cortex. Short-term memory also is affected.

    Now, add to this the effects of this cyst. He would be an absolute fool. He doesn't need the money and he has grandchildren. I don't see him doing it, no matter how much he would like to do it. If he does, it might end badly. Most certainly, the press would try to rip him apart to get clicks. It isn't worth it.

    and more important than all that, I don't see his wife letting him coach again

    Brains are important but the piece of physiology at play here is undefeated.

    I'm 58 man. I don't need to know that shit. Or are you saying that by the time I'm 60 I won't remember it? What did I just type?

    He'd have to convince Marotti, Pantoni, and Stamper to all leave, not to mention his wife and both daughters (plus Corey Dennis, also on OSU's staff) to follow him with his grandkids. There's also the fact he's currently just 100 miles up I-71 from Cincinnati (which is a 75 minute drive for Urban) where Nate is going to play baseball (just like Urban, and at Urban's alma mater) for the next four or five years.

    I just cannot see it happening.

    I learned about this after a fall last year. There is variation in individuals. By the age of 63, it is normal to have 18 white matter lesions. I suppose it is genetics and all the running and cycling over the years, but I had none. The guy in the bed beside me had more than 25. Short-term memory (where are my effing keys?) is affected, but those effects would be very visible when you're having to make decisions in split seconds during a game and remember what plays your opponent usually runs in a particular situation, as opposed to what he has run in those situations in the current game. A 10% decline and Urban Meyer is not Urban Meyer.

    You know I have a PhD. OK, it's not in medicine, but you could say that a Dr recommended a healthy diet, regular cardiovascular exercise for 30 minutes or longer with an average heart rate of 80% of the max for your age (i.e., 220 minus your age), and lots of sex.
