Former Florida Gators and Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer hasn’t been shy in terms of his fandom for the Texas Longhorns this year. Texas’ Week 5 matchup against the Kansas Jayhawks – who are new and improved under head coach Lance Leipold – is no exception.
“[Texas has] one of the most talented rosters in college football,” Meyer said, according to On3. “They’re well coached, and they went to Tuscaloosa and, and beat, didn’t upset, they beat Alabama. I have him as my number one team in America.”
“I think they beat Kansas,” Meyer added. “I’m not taking away from Kansas. I just like Lawrence, too. I’ve been there a couple of times. I just never quite understood why Lawrence, Kansas can’t, can’t have a good quality football team. And now they have a good quality football coach. So I hope this coach stays there because he’s really doing a great job there.”
