The original video, along with the Twitter account that posted it, has been deleted. We’ll see if Meyer addresses the situation in the coming days. The video is still out there on social media, though.
A slanderous videotape of a man who appears to be Jacksonville Jaguars head trainer Urban Meyer is trending on social media on Saturday night.
The videotape appears to show the first-date NFL head trainer at a bar getting danced on by a youthful woman who isn’t his woman, Shelley.
Meyer and the Jaguars played at the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night. It’s common for NFL squads to get the weekend off after playing on Thursday night. Meyer has family in Columbus and multiple grills in the area.
Ohio State played at Rutgers on Saturday evening. In the videotape, Meyer appears to be wearing an Ohio State pullover.
Hearing reports that @CoachUrbanMeyer is on his sixth G Breezy margarita at his Pint House in Dublin absolutely despondent and muttering to himself about missing Rutgers on the schedule. 😔😔😔😔 We miss you, coach!

Unsurprisingly, football fans across the country have taken to social media to weigh in on the scandalous video.

It’s like Urban Meyer isn’t aware the iPhone has a camera on it at all much less Apple’s most advanced dual-lens system ever. https://t.co/Q70dpfxVza

Possibly Meyer was just blowing off some fog following Thursday night’s loss. The Jaguars head trainer said he was “ devastated” following the Bengals’ game-winning field intention.
“ It’s destructive, heartbreaking,” Meyer told newshounds postgame. “ Normally I’m not wrong about stuff like that, that I just see a good crew in there. I see good guys, good hearts. I see guys at work and I told them I’m not wrong about that stuff. This crew is going to win some games.”
Meyer’s former quarterback, Tim Tebow, thinks he’ll stick it out in the NFL.
“ The one thing that I’d remind you of is when you say, He might not last.He might not be around for a while.The other quality that he has is a crazy determination.He has a crazy determination.So while it might be hard, I suppose he’s going to be really determined. I suppose he hoped to win all of those games. I suppose he hoped to be 3-1 or 4-0,” Tebow said on First Take.
“ He’s taking that hard. But I also suppose that this dude is super single-minded and super determined. I suppose he’ll continue to tweak and spoil and change and get new guys in there and suit and do whatever it takes because he’s so determined. I don’t suppose he’d quit without chancing a way to turn the wind a little bit.”
Meyer and the Jaguars will return to the field on Sunday, Oct. 10 against the Whales.
