Urban Meyer leaves Week 11 Big Noon Kickoff broadcast early due to illness
Urban Meyer returned to the broadcast realm this college football season as a part of the FOX Big Noon Kickoff crew. The former head coach was with the crew for Saturday’s on-site broadcast from Columbus for the game between Ohio State and Indiana.
Unfortunately, Meyer’s afternoon was cut a bit short. As the crew got ready to break down the first half of action at halftime, host Rob Stone announced that Meyer left the set early.

According to Stone, Meyer was feeling “under the weather” on Saturday. It did not sound serious but no other update was given on his status at that point.

The rest of the crew joked that Meyer is likely back home with a hot beverage in hand and enjoying the performance of the Buckeyes. Heading into the break, Ohio State is up big over Indiana by a score of 28-7.
We’ll see if Ohio State can finish off a big win in Week 11. Hopefully, all is well with Meyer and he is able to return in Week 12 next Saturday.
