Urban Meyer Lets 'Ballers'
Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports
ESPN just released a report called "Inside the rise and fall of Urban Meyer's Florida Gators" that dives into the program's rise with him at the helm, him getting sick, and the fall after his departure. In that report it says that he had special privileges for "ballers"...
quote:

Life was good for “Ballers” in Meyer’s program.

Ballers produced on Saturdays and were committed to the program. Ballers got first dibs at team meals, front seats on chartered planes and were often excused from practice. Meyer took care of players he trusted.

“I think it was starting to become [playing favorites],” Trautwein said. “If you asked him now, he’s probably not doing that at Ohio State.”

“[Meyer] allowed players to do what they wanted, which is why the program is still getting fixed,” Young said. “He allowed players to run amok.”

Meh...no different than the business world. The people who produce and finish at the top get the perks--nothing wrong with that.
You want to sit in the front of the plane--step up your game. You want to eat first--don't jump offsides.
