By now, you’ve heard about the Urban Meyer drama that’s unfolding. The guy decided to stick around and not join the Jacksonville Jaguars, for whom he’s the head coach, on their flight back to Florida last weekend. Instead, Meyer did a little bar hopping on the night.

In all the ways the situation could’ve ended pretty, it ended in none of those ways.

Now, Texas Longhorns can rejoice in not hiring the former Ohio State Buckeyes head coach.

Thank you, universe. Thank you so, so much. This makes up for Tom Herman. Kind of.
